After the Storm
Riken to the RescueThe storm is gone and now it’s time to rebuild. So who do you call? Be cautious! Every storm provides an opportunity for uninsured, unqualified and unexperienced “contractors” to take advantage of you and your situation. 5 Reasons Why You Need Riken After The Storm. 1. Years in Business. Riken Construction has been in business for 30+ years. Like other successful builders and storm restoration contractors, we are proud of our history in Central Florida and hard-earned reputation. 2. Insurance Claims. If you are filing an insurance claim, it is critical that you work with a contractor who has the experience to advocate for you and make sure your insurance claim is settled for a fair amount that will cover the cost of your repairs. 3. Our Own Crew. While many good contractors outsource the actual restoration work to subcontractors, you’ll want to make sure your contractor can provide adequate supervision to ensure a high quality finished job. 4. We’re Local. Choosing someone who is local is a safeguard against a potential scammer. Plus, some local governments in regions affected by major storms require that contractors have a license on file to be able to get the permits for construction work needed. 5. Client Satisfaction. It’s our goal on every project to provide work that’s done right the first time, on budget and every step of the project well communicated … ending with breathtaking results and happy clients. And after working with hundreds of clients over the years, they’ve become like family to us. You can not only read about their experience with our team but talk to them as well!
