What Others Say About Us
"Just wanted to let you know Slavic just finished up our job today and we are so happy with it. He came Friday and did an immaculate job on the patching of the hole in our ceiling (water damage). The texturing job was the best I’ve ever seen, you can’t tell there was any work done. Today he came by and painted. It was done quickly, professionally and with NO mess. He’s a credit to your organization, I would have no problem recommending Lawton to anyone I know. Thanks so much"
Sim T.
"As much as I will be very happy to have everything done…I think I will miss the crew as they are all very sweet and helpful. You don’t know how important all this is until you loose everything. I can say 100% if I had it to do over I would never consider another contractor. The entire process is very personal and Lawton treats it that way…I would happily relay my experience to anyone…they were great!"
Angela D.
"I have had two major home repairs completed by Lawton — in my kitchen and bathroom. These jobs, to repair water damage, included multiple elements — mitigation, drywall, flooring, cabinet work, electrical, etc. Their work has been excellent; their employees courteous and reliable. In addition, the costs have been quite reasonable. They work very well with my insurance company. I would recommend them to anyone who needs high quality home repair."
Kate R.
"The cleanup crew did a fantastic job removing the damaged material, masking off the rooms properly to limit dust/other from other rooms, and cleaning up in preparation of repairing the areas damaged by water. They were extremely customer oriented and very professional."

"We’d like express our sincere thanks to your staff, especially our Project Manager Ron Griesel for his sincere and through professionalism and great communication skills, he is a true asset to your company. Our estimator Matt Redmond as well has our sincere thanks for his prompt responses and efforts to launch and coordinate our project as well. Thanks also to your contractors, M&M Electric, Penkala Construction, and Mark Parr Construction. We thank your P.E. Chris Oliveria for his services. A sincere thank you for restoring our home."
Jeff & Diane Heard. 
"I would recommend Lawton to any of my friends who need construction work done. They were very professional and respectful while working in the kitchen. The work was well done. The granite counter top installation was extremely well done as it was a challenging layout. Thanks very much to Dimitri for his great work on that, we love the countertops! Thanks to all the team who worked on the project. Great job from beginning to end."

"We worked with Lawton on a garage fire restoration.  I have to say the garage is beautiful – and that’s usually hard to say about a garage.  They worked hard for us with the insurance company and went the extra mile to make sure that all damage was covered.  As glad as I am to have the job finished – the crew became more like friends and I will miss them.  Good job guys!"
Linda S.
"We had water damage in our vacation home. Our insurance company had Lawton contact us. Within hours Lawton had sent a team up to us to remove carpeting and to stop the mold and further damage. I was very pleased at how seamless the whole process was between the insurance co. , Lawton and us. Everyone we came into contact with were very likeable and willing to do whatever it would take to make us satisfied. We have our home back and it’s as good as ever. Thanks to all at Lawton."

Checking your fire alarms is fundamental for your survival during a home fire. Sure there are many external factors you can’t control, but there are things you can do to avoid any unfortunate situation. 

According to statistics provided by the National Fire Protection Association, three out of five home fire deaths resulted from a lack of fire alarms. For this reason, Lawton Construction & Restoration, Inc.DKI in Lincoln would like to share an easy method to test your fire alarms. 

Get Ready

Before you perform your test, let everyone in the house know about it; this will also allow your family to become acquainted with the noise your alarms make. Place a sturdy chair or ladder under the smoke alarm and wear comfortable shoes and clothing. 

Test It

Now, look for the test button, push it for a few seconds and wait for a loud beep; don’t forget to wear ear protection to safeguard your ears. If you didn’t hear anything, try replacing the batteries and test it again. If it still doesn’t sound, replace the device. Never remove batteries from your alarms to use them in other appliances. 

Aerosol Test

You also have to make sure your alarms will beep in case of actual smoke and the best way is to use an aerosol smoke detector tester, which you can find in your local hardware store. Spray it on your alarm and wait for the beep, if it doesn’t sound, replace it. Remember that you should carry out this test once every month and replace your alarms after 10 years. 

Testing your fire alarms should be part of your escape plan, which will allow you and your family to evacuate your home quickly and safely. Also, don’t forget to read this previous post containing useful information on preventing home fires
