Ray Shingler loves to call Coastal Georgia home, which is why he started a business to help it.
After more than 15 years fighting metro Atlanta traffic, Ray immediately felt at home on St. Simons Island, far away from the congestion and hustle. But his move to the Golden Isles wasn’t so he could retire and take it easy. On the contrary, Ray came with a vision and a passion for helping people in Southeast Coastal Georgia put their homes and businesses back together after disaster and to get their lives back to normal.
He started Restoration 1 of Coastal Georgia a little more than a year ago and quickly built it to become the premier restoration services provider for a more than 30-county area in Southeast Georgia and Northeast Florida. When your home or business is damaged by water or fire, ravaged by mold, or plagued by a filthy and aging HVAC system, one call to Ray and his team of certified professionals is all it takes to get things back to normal.
Just ask Dr. Carlton Hicks of Coastal Eye Care on St. Simons Island.
“When our business was damaged by a small fire caused by a faulty monitor, we didn’t know where to begin the recovery process,” Carlton said. “Luckily, the first step was the only step we needed to worry about. We called Restoration 1 of Coastal Georgia. Ray and the crew responded in a timely manner, assessed the damage, provided an easy to understand and transparent quote, and had us back to normal in no time. The team was professional, fast, and the work left our building better than it was before the fire. Thanks Restoration 1.”
Those results are what drive the team at Restoration 1 of Coastal Georgia. They are certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification, have been screened and approved by Home Advisor as an Elite Service, use state-of-the-art equipment, and provide safe, EPA-approved treatment solutions. All of that is to serve the most important component of the company, the customers.
“The best part is dealing with the people, our customers,” Ray said. “We love working with the people and seeing their lives get back to normal.”
And the Restoration 1 of Coastal Georgia crew is now offering its stellar services to even more people. Ray and company have expanded, recently opening Restoration 1 of Coastal Jacksonville, bringing the same fast, friendly, and professional services to folks living in Jacksonville’s beach communities.
Restoration 1 of Coastal Georgia and Restoration 1 of Coastal Jacksonville are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week because unexpected fires, broken pipes, and floods don’t keep a regular schedule. Ray knows well that providing premier restoration services is hard work but seeing the end results makes it worth the time and effort.
“It does require some nasty work, especially when sewer issues or mold are involved, but that is why we’re here, to do the work no one else wants to do and to do it well,” Ray said. “That’s why I’m so happy to have a great group of guys who are truly here to make our customers happy.”
Restoration 1 of Coastal Georgia and Restoration 1 of Coastal Jacksonville offer free estimates, quick response times, and work with every type of insurance to remove the guesswork and maintain your peace of mind. They also provide transparent quotes that are easy to understand so there are no surprises.
“It can be more than just an inconvenience to deal with water or fire damage, or to tackle removing mold for good. It can be devastating to a family,” Ray said. “That’s why we’re here. It just takes one call. We’re a service-oriented, customer-first organization. We do it differently than the other companies out there.”
And that is why Ray and the crew at Restoration 1 of Coastal Georgia and Restoration 1 of Coastal Jacksonville have built a stellar reputation in a short amount of time.
