For franchisees who invest in 1-800 WATER DAMAGE, you receive the fruits of years of work that has placed the brand as one of the top-rated restoration franchises in the country. As a result – by building a brand people trust, we constantly have a demand for services, whether through referrals, return customers and having a reputation people soon discover when shopping around for restoration companies.
“This is a relationship business,” says Tim Fagan, President of 1-800 WATER DAMAGE. “I have customers who still send me thank-you cards 20 years later – that’s how meaningful this business is. We want to franchise with people who truly connect with our mission and want to go above and beyond. That’s why we’re successful.”

The BELFOR advantage
At 1-800 WATER DAMAGE, we understand our company can’t be successful if our franchisees aren’t successful. That’s why we provide franchisees with all the training and support they need, through best-in-class BELFOR FRANCHISE GROUP, the industry leader in home-service brands. At the end of our training programs, our new franchisees are equipped with all the skills and knowledge they need to run a successful restoration business, and how to provide a range of services for residential and commercial customers.
Indeed, most of our top-performing franchisees had zero to little experience in the restoration industry before taking on this exciting opportunity. But, because we take training incredibly seriously, we’ve propelled hundreds of aspiring business owners into successful careers.
For one, all franchisees visit our state-of-the-art training facility in Ann Arbor, Michigan, designed to help master your new business and become the expert in restoration services. Equipped with technology-enhanced classrooms, an on-site flood house to give you hands-on training and most importantly, industry-leading experts who will guide you every step of the way.
Our development team will also help you develop and fine tune your business plan, set realistic goals, learn how to hire and retain top talent, create a thriving business culture and build relationships in your community.
“The most inspiring thing about 1-800 WATER DAMAGE is we help people who’ve always had a dream of opening their own business make it happen,” says Ken Osness, Vice President of Franchise Development with BELFOR Franchise Group. “In turn, our 1-800 WATER DAMAGE owners go into homes that are severely damaged and help people through a very traumatic time.
