When HarenLaughlin was founded, Charles W. Haren, Sr. engrained his personal values into the company- integrity, professionalism, and craftsmanship.
Over time, clients began to contact HarenLaughlin for restorative services after their facility experienced catastrophic damage. HarenLaughlin identified the need to provide these restoration services for existing partners and potential new clients and founded HarenLaughlin Restoration to accommodate these needs.
Today, HarenLaughlin Restoration provides both commercial and residential restoration services. To meet the ever changing needs of the marketplace, an emergency loss priority service and disaster planning program is also available through the HarenLaughlin Restoration’s PRC program.
While the needs of our clients and the marketplace have evolved, our company values have remained steadfast: integrity, professionalism and craftsmanship in everything we do.
In the Beginning…
C.W. Haren, Sr. (known as “Pappy”) planned to work in the family banking after his college graduation in 1931. Due to the Great Depression, banking jobs were in short supply. Being a resourceful and hardworking young man, Pappy began renovating bank owned properties. Pappy was called to serve in the Navy during World War II, and hired Hal Laughlin to run his business. Upon his return from service, the partnership and HarenLaughlin Construction was born.
Pappy’s son Tod joined the company in the late 1960’s as a laborer, carpenter, and superintendent before joining the management team. After taking over the reins in the mid 1970’s, Tod grew the company through continued hard work and dedication.
In 1998 C.W. ‘Wells’ Haren III purchased HarenLaughlin Construction and through this endeavor founded HarenLaughlin Restoration in 2001. Under his steadfast direction and leadership, the company has continually grown to service new and existing clients. In 2008, the sister company HarenLaughlin Restoration was born to better cater to the property damage industry.
This employee-owned and family-run business holds true to the principles of our founder providing quality craftsmanship, exceptional value and outstanding customer service.
Where we are today…
At the beginning of 2018, HarenLaughlin Restoration took a step in creating our own identity by becoming HL Restoration. Still holding true to the original HarenLaughlin core values, we continue to grow and remain the Midwest’s number one property damage restoration company.
