When you think of Woodard, what comes to mind? Professional office cleaning? Water, fire, and storm damage restoration services? Complete construction solutions? While each of those thoughts are 100% correct, you may not know that Woodard is a Restoration Affiliates (RA) member company, and is highly-active within the organization. What is Restoration Affiliates? This is one of the most common questions we hear from our clients. To answer the question simply, RA is a national network of independent, full-service disaster restoration companies. Members provide complete mitigation, remediation, construction, and restoration services for commercial, industrial, and multifamily property owners and insurance professionals. In other words: RA works together with the nation’s highest-quality restoration service providers to create a strategic network for sharing resources, relationships, and support. The partnership allows RA member companies to provide local, regional, and national commercial clients with immediate service in the event of a large water, fire, or storm-related loss. Additionally, all RA member companies work together to refer projects and losses to better serve their clientele. This unique partnership gives affiliates the advantage of networking and collaborating on best practices with their fellow industry leaders. How Involved is Woodard with RA?
