United Water Restoration Group INFO
About United Water Restoration Group
Since 2008, United Water Restoration Group (UWRG) has helped thousands of home and business owners restore properties to pre-loss condition. Through a commitment to excellence and a focus on personal attention, clients’ expectations are exceeded every time, without exception. Today, with a philosophy of hiring the best staff to provide professional restoration services, UWRG has grown to more than 80 locations and maintains a level of customer service rarely seen in the industry. Although UWRG assists those experiencing disasters, this growing, recession-proof industry is also supported by fundamental infrastructure issues like aging systems and reconstruction. The scope of the industry is large: water damage alone accounts for the second most filed type of insurance claim in the U.S., with 14,000 Americans experiencing water damage every day. As economic losses continue to occur, additional company growth and new location development are in UWRG’s sights. With this high demand for restoration services, now is the perfect time to become part of this growing market as an independent restoration franchise owner.

Why United Water Restoration Group & Why Now
Founded in Florida during the recession, UWRG knows that regardless of what is happening with the economy, pipes still burst, mold still grows and natural disasters still strike. Helping people recover their most valuable assets and get back to normal life after a disaster is an essential community service, and UWRG has been a dominant force in the restoration industry for the last 14 years.
With UWRG, prospective franchisees have the opportunity to be a part of a scalable, recession-resistant business at a low cost of entry. The brand is aiming for 40 signings next year and is looking to add six this year. The franchise is also working with Raintree, a franchise development organization, to reach its development goals of having 60 to 75 units in the next two years.
What Sets UWRG Apart?
UWRG’s dedicated focus on its customers sets it apart from the competition. The brand has a deeply embedded customer-first culture that is intentionally spread throughout the organization at all levels. UWRG also prides itself on its level of responsiveness. Help is available 24/7, 365 days a year. No matter the time of day or night, someone will be on call with a fully stocked van ready to go. From the minute a call is received, a team will be assembled within 15 minutes, and an operation manager will be onsite within the hour.
Why the Category
It’s difficult to turn on the television today without hearing a story about weather disasters or aging infrastructure. In fact, there are 14,000 water emergencies and 385,000 structural fires every year in the United States. With UWRG, prospective franchisees have the opportunity to be a part of a scalable, recession-resistant industry.
Every city in the U.S. experiences water, fire, mold or structural damage, so UWRG owners can thrive anywhere. UWRG is looking for motivated, empathetic franchisees who are looking to provide outstanding customer service in their communities.
Franchisees do not necessarily need experience in restoration or have a home-services background. UWRG owners should have skills such as sales, management, business development and leadership.
