How Much Money Can I Make?

A proven business model with multiple revenue streams and large, protected territories, make owning a 1-800 WATER DAMAGE franchise a best-bet

Since we started franchising in 2002, 1-800 WATER DAMAGE has been one of the nation’s preeminent brands in the $210 billion restoration industry – and for good reason.

Our franchise owners go above and beyond to become their communities’ trusted experts in home and commercial property restoration services. By helping home and business owners recover from property damage due to water, mold, fire, smoke, and more, 1-800 WATER DAMAGE franchise owners benefit from offering a range of expert restoration services that exceed what other brands in the restoration industry offer. Because we help our franchise owners establish themselves in their markets, our customers know that when we show up, we’re capable of getting the job done right, for the right price, and with the level of expertise they expect.

The restoration industry is recession-resistant

A key reason why the restoration industry is so attractive to entrepreneurs is that when disaster strikes, property owners have to act – and they have to act fast. This is the reason why the restoration industry is recession-resistant, as home and property owners can’t put off taking care of an issue that makes their property uninhabitable. This has created a large industry that is highly lucrative and highly relevant to consumers.

While any growing industry is going to be competitive, 1-800 WATER DAMAGE has a proven track record of going above and beyond for our customers. At 1-800 WATER DAMAGE, our mission is simple – provide the ultimate customer experience. Our connection to BELFOR Property Restoration, the world’s largest restoration company – alongside our commitment to industry-leading training – has built a nationwide reputation of trust, high quality work and exceptional customer service.

The industry agrees. 1-800 WATER DAMAGE was ranked high on Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 list, as well as the same publications list of the Top Franchise Opportunities for Any Budget and Top Franchises for Veterans.

You get access to large-scale jobs

One of the biggest benefits of franchising with 1-800 WATER Damage is access to much larger projects through our National Disaster Response Team. This team offers opportunities for our franchisees to join forces with BELFOR Property Restoration on large commercial jobs, often after catastrophes. These are all hands on deck situations where franchisees, our home office support teams, and in-house technical experts and trainers work together to tackle jobs on a scale they’d never be able to do independently. This provides invaluable experience, as catastrophe situations always present unique challenges, as well as the potential for additional revenue.
