About Us

When fire and water damage take their toll on a family’s house, the harm can be more than just superficial.  It can be a traumatic and harmful situation for any family, and is something no one should have to go through alone.  Peace of mind can be something that is difficult to accomplish during such a trying time, but by no means is it impossible.  That is why Porter’s Restoration has made it a personal mission to give its customers peace of mind and the best possible home restoration service it can provide

At Porter’s Restoration, we know and understand the value of hard work, the importance of family, and the needs of our community.  Based in NW Indiana we have been an essential part of the region’s community home restoration needs since 1978.  However, our expertise in the area of restoration goes back long before that.

Porter’s started in 1951 as a small, family-run dry cleaning business.   Starting in 1978, we began specializing in restoring personal property, including clothing and other garments, from soot and odor damage.  From here, it was a natural progression which led Porter’s to the home restoration field, where the skills gained through hard work and family values could be used to help restore homes suffering from fire and water damage.

Porter’s Restoration has built up a sturdy and well-founded reputation with many clients, both personal and professional.   The homeowner is our number one client, and we have built our knowledge base with the customer in mind.  That is why we dedicate so much time and energy to ensuring the peace of mind of our customer in such a difficult and stressful time.   With Porter’s, you can feel secure in the knowledge that your home restoration is in good hands.

When your home is damaged, the toll can be devastating.  Water and fire damage can have long-term, increasing effects; water damage can lead to escalating mold problems and fire damage can leave a permanent smoke odor on your garments and upholstery.  Luckily, there is a solution.  Porter’s Restoration has made eliminating such problems a priority since 1978.

Home restoration brings your family home or business back to its original beauty.  When a home is restored, it maintains the original essence of what made it personal and marketable.  For homeowners, the choice for restoration can be obvious – to recover completely from a disaster or unforeseeable event.  Restoration can help repair damage to homes, eliminate odor and water stains, and keep your home safe from toxic fumes.  But home restoration benefits realtors as well – restoring a home can help sell it at a greater rate by eliminating noxious odors and mold than otherwise detract from the market value. Finally, restoration is often necessary if your business is damaged by flood or fire. Otherwise, it would likely be deemed unsafe to open.

Some of the benefits of home restoration include:

  • Removes foul smoke odors from your house permanently
  • Eliminates soot damage and staining from water damage
  • Gets rid of toxic mold which may be harmful to your health
  • More cost effective and beneficial to the environment than replacing damaged furniture and house contents
  • Maintains the market value of your home

When a home is restored, the value and personal living space is brought back to what made it special in the first place.  Porter’s Restoration is here to help you improve your home.  Our state-of-the-art odor eliminating technology makes sure that odors are eliminated for good.  Porter’s also uses high-grade mold eliminating technology to not only eradicate all mold from your premises, but any stains occurring from mold.  With our extensive background in steam and dry cleaning, we can help restore garments and upholstery to new.  For your home, not only is restoration a natural choice, but Porter’s is the natural choice to carry out the job to your satisfaction.
