Fire and Water Restoration in Pittsburgh, PA

Welcome to Pittsburgh’s fire and water damage restoration specialists, Duckstein Restoration. We’re a highly-rated, full-damage restoration and repair company with an impressive history of serving our customers since the 1970s. We go further than other restoration companies with multiple 24/7 dedicated restoration crews always on standby waiting for your phone call. We’ve built an in-house showroom for all of our restoration materials, saving our customers from having to add “shopping” to their list after a fire or flood. We are home to some of the industry’s most advanced restoration technology, too. And when we’re not using high-end, cutting-edge restoration equipment, we’re designing solutions ourselves; Nationwide Insurance has even adopted our unique damage-less window board-up system across their entire company. From our extensive on-site warehouse to our dedicated content cleaning areas, massive fleet of trucks, and the many crews employed full-time by Duckstein Restoration, you can tell right away that we’re not just a few construction workers pulling up to your job in pick-up trucks. Our goal is to always be the standard by which the restoration industry is measured, and we’re proud of the tens of thousands of restoration jobs we have completed for satisfied customers.

At Duckstein Restoration, our strongest offering is the ability to bring you and your family the peace of mind you need after fire, water, and/or mold damage occur in your home. Whether you have just had a major disaster or finally want to address that ever-leaking roof on your home, Duckstein Restoration is committed to making your property damage restorations as easy and simple as possible. If you’ve been through a fire or flood, you’ve likely been through a lot—so let us take all of the repair, restoration, and insurance work off your plate. Our 40+ years of experience, in-house crews, and secure, fully-inclusive storage and restoration facility make us a preferential choice for any family or business owner looking to properly address and remedy their restoration challenges with great results, getting life back to normal as soon as possible. We also carry a dedicated credit line, so approximately 95% of the time, a project is started and well into the repairs process before we even get our first payment. We’ll help protect your home, save and preserve your belongings, and restore your property to a condition that meets or exceeds your expectations.

Water Damage Restoration

When it comes to water damage restoration, we arrive with over 40 years of experience in drying, repairing, and restoring flood- and water-damaged homes. When you call us with a flood or other water damage occurring in your home, we’ll have a full-time Duckstein Restoration first responder to your home within two hours (usually less if you live closer to Pittsburgh, PA). Our first responder works with our high-end infrared technology to identify the entire extent of your water damage (we can look through walls and floors with our specialized cameras), help you immediately address all the things that can be done to protect and save your home, dispatch the specific on-call crews and trucks that will cover your restoration, and help you work with your insurance company to accurately communicate the scope of the damage in your situation.

If your damage is significant, we’ll help you through everything from inventory to evacuation. We have the right tools and manpower to promptly get started on your water-damage restoration without delays. We can store your entire home’s contents in our on-site, secured warehouse. Our content restoration specialists will work to restore and preserve any materials and property that were damaged in your home, and perhaps most importantly, we’ll completely dry all the water damage as quickly as possible. We will work to replace flooring, carpet, construction, and whatever else might be needed to leave your home in better condition than it was before that first drop of water found its way to somewhere it shouldn’t have gone.

Founded in 1971, we're one of Pennsylvania's oldest and most experienced restoration companies.

Our secret? We take care of our customers as if they were family.

Fire Damage Restoration

Fire damage is an all-encompassing devastation that requires the utmost professionalism and experience to remedy. That dedication is what makes Duckstein Restoration such a perfect partner in restoring your home. When there is a fire in your home or business, you are likely to have fire damage, smoke damage, soot and ashes, water damage, and the potential for vandalism and robbery. Fire restoration is a serious job that requires high-end equipment, vast experience, and a dedication to taking on a level of work that requires constant attention to prevent any further damage.

Duckstein Restoration, when called for a fire damage restoration case, will send a full-time, in-house first responder to your property within two hours (and many times sooner than that). Our first responder will take stock of the damage and help you work with your insurance company to get your claim started. Then, the first responder will engage the right on-call crews and trucks to take action before any further damage occurs. After a fire, every second counts. We’re not the kind of company that will wait on your work, so we’ll quickly start saving as much of your property as we can, boarding up and tarping your property, securing your home against any vandalism, and more. From there, we’ll take your belongings to our secure warehouses (we can store up to 20 entire homes’ contents) and begin restoring your personal property. Meanwhile, our crews will begin to start work on your property restoration, whether that involves rebuilding your home from the foundation or restoring the damage following a partial home fire.

Mold Remediation

No home is safe from mold. It doesn’t matter if the home is worth $50,000 or $50,000,000–mold is opportunistic and ready to take advantage of any moisture around your home. What makes it even more complicated is that mold can start to grow in just under two days, and it doesn’t require a massive amount of water. Mold can damage homes, cause health problems, and create a musty odor throughout your property. Mold can occur as a result of a flood or fire (from leaking, damaged pipes to the water used to extinguish the fire), a leaking roof, a crack in a once-frozen pipe, or even rainwater getting into the foundation. Remediation involves detecting the water causing the moist environment for mold to grow, eliminating and drying the water, replacing the necessary materials, and decontaminating the entire area.

Duckstein Restoration has over 40 years of experience in mold remediation. We use high-end technology to look inside your walls and flooring without cutting, and we can detect the smallest instances of water and moisture throughout your home. We have a full array of restoration equipment and dedicated crews waiting to help eliminate any trace of mold inside your home.

Our In-house Showroom

Our in-house showroom provides our customers several significant advantages when choosing Duckstein Restoration. After a fire or flood, materials for restoration need to be selected by the homeowner. Many times, that means shopping trips with your restoration contractor to specialty stores for carpeting, siding, paints, flooring, counter tops, cabinets, marble and so on. When you and your family have recently experienced a major disaster, having to make time to make it to all the stores is not only complicated, but it can significantly delay your repairs. Furthermore, by having our own in-house showroom, we’re able to better control costs by removing the middleman markup of big-box retail. That means that with Duckstein Restoration, your insurance money goes further because we’re installing from a wide variety of our own showroom materials. Also, by choosing trusted products for our showroom, we make sure that you’re installing the quality that we know will deliver.

When you are working with us on your home restoration, our entire process is housed safely on-site. Your personal goods are being cleaned and stored in the warehouses that are located on the same property as our showroom. It’s a one-stop total solution for you and your family, keeping you and your loved ones from multiple trips back-and-forth from your contractors to your contents warehouses to the different specialty stores to select your restoration materials. With Duckstein Restoration, you can have all of your needs taken care of in one trip.
