We Are Property Damage Restoration Specialists, we are First In Service
The First General Team is the best in the property damage restoration industry. Each office has the resources required to provide the highest level of quality service. Our Corporate Key Performance Indicator (KPI) program monitors performance and ensures a consistent standard across all offices.
Every First General office is transparent in all of their transactions. You will not work with a First General member that does not put integrity first. Our network is comprised of owners who put customers first.
In an age where every dollar counts, we understand the importance of value. Our average restoration cost has continued to decline over the past three years. We are accountable to you.
First In National Networks
We are one of North America’s largest property damage restoration networks with over eighty offices in Canada and the United States. We offer you the power of a multinational network, with the familiarity of a trusted friend. Each office is independently owned and operated. Our business model fosters individual responsibility and innovation with a strong core of accountability. Our offices are supported through a centralized national head office.
First In Emergency Response
We appreciate that property damage emergencies are stressful and costly. Our policy is to value engineer each claim to ensure the cost of emergency services is justified. That is why First General should be your first call. We respond 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, minimizing damages and reducing overall property damage restoration costs. Our Team has managed losses from one hundred to one hundred thousand square feet. Our offices are strategically located across North America to ensure we have the capacity to respond immediately.
First In Contents.
The First General Hub and Spoke model is unique to the property damage restoration industry, with its goal of reducing the cost and duration of your claim. Through our network of approved contractors, we appoint one First General office in each territory to act as a central processing facility (HUB). They receive damaged contents from feeder First General offices (Spokes). Our HUB facilities are fully equipped with specialized content handling equipment and highly trained and experienced staff.
