Frequently Asked Questions

Drake’s is your reliable partner for commercial and residential heating and air conditioning, roofing, construction and water and fire recovery and restoration needs.

Do I have to use the contractor my insurance agent recommends?

Insurance companies often make referrals to contractors for repair and restoration work – and we are often recommended. But your coverage is not contingent upon using one of the contractors recommended. You can choose the contractor with whom you wish to work. This is true for water recovery, storm and fire damage, as well as roof repairs and replacements. 

Is Drake’s Construction and Restoration a licensed contractor?

We are! Our West Virginia number is #WV037234.

Will I receive an itemized bid?

We provide a very detailed project estimate for every job. See an example below. And you can request an estimate with our on-line form.

Will the same person be running my project from start to finish?

Yes, we assign one foreman to your job, and we’ll be happy to introduce you to your foreman before you sign a contract with us.

Are your suppliers and employees local?

Yes. We purchase materials from major chains located in Parkersburg and across the Mid Ohio Valley, as well as independent suppliers of both goods and services. And our employees live here as well.

How long have you been in business?

Drake’s Construction and Restoration has been in business for over 20 years.

Would you be willing to provide references?

We’re always glad to provide you with names and contact information for our clients, who are always a source of referrals for our work and services.

How long will my project take and how much will it cost?

Drake’s will conduct a thorough assessment of your project and then provide you with a very detailed itemized estimate. Drake’s adheres to the date and budget stated on our quotes, updating both based only on changes to the project made at your request.

Is Drake’s fully insured?

Yes, we are fully insured and also carry full worker’s compensation coverage on our employees.

Is it normal to be so stressed out?

Losing a home and/or belongings to a fire or flood IS very stressful. It is important to know that the feelings of loss and stress after a flood or fire are second only to those caused by the death of a loved one. Give yourself time and permission to grieve.

Do you help with the design of a kitchen, bath or other remodel?

Yes, we have experienced, professional design partners that we trust for this work. They will work with us to craft a plan that fits your budget and vision.
