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."

The importance of your foundation can’t be overstated, as it provides support to your entire home. However, it’s easy to forget its importance and neglect the basic cares for keeping it in perfect condition; out of sight, out of mind. At Lawton Construction & Restoration DKI, we specialize in water damage repair in Sacramento, for this reason, we would like to share useful advice on this topic. 

Look for Signs

You should inspect your property frequently and look for any cracks on walls, uneven floors, jammed doors and windows or displaced moldings. These are red flag that you shouldn’t neglect, as a damaged foundation can even become a threat to the home occupiers. 

Watch out for Droughts

It’s no secret that water is a scarce resource in California and droughts can make the soil extremely dry and may your foundation sink, so remember watering your foundation periodically during summer. Avoid planting shrubs, plants or trees close to your foundation, as their roots can cause potential damage. 

Gutters & Downspouts

Keeping the water away from your property is crucial, especially during the rainy season. However, dirt, grime and other debris in your gutters may prevent them for carrying out their tasks, so make sure to clean and fix your gutters at least twice a year. Don’t forget to check that there are no clogs in the downspouts and that they are draining the water properly.

Preventing any foundation problems is relatively easy, and you should include these task in your home maintenance checklist. This way, you will be able to spot any potential damage and address it on time. Also, remember that excess moisture can lead to mold growth, so be sure to read our guide to getting rid of this unwanted guest in your home.
