ABOUT US

Delta Restoration Services (Delta) is a nationally recognized, award-winning franchise brand in the 210-billion-dollar restoration industry, providing restoration services to commercial and residential properties for water, fire and environmental damage, including reconstruction.

Mission

Delta’s franchise mission is to provide excellent service to our customers and our service partners, as well as to have the best employees who will never sacrifice quality, integrity or ethics. Our goal is to be the most respected restoration company by staying true to our tagline - “Peace of Mind... During Uncertain Times®.

The Delta Story

Delta Restoration Services was conceptualized after Founder and President Mike Mastous spent his career in the restoration industry operating restoration companies, adjusting for insurance carriers and helping other brands expand into restoration. The full-service model was not widely available for the customer or for insurance companies to use at the time, and Mike used this gap in the industry to start the award-winning restoration service franchise.

Having Delta’s founder and president drive the company’s daily operations and constantly looking for new opportunities to drive efficiencies and profits allows all franchise locations to benefit from his native operational acumen and operational experience, in real time.

Following Delta’s acquisition by Harris Research Inc. (HRI) Holdings in early 2018, the full-service property restoration brand experienced significant franchise growth and is currently operating in dozens of markets, including its corporately run territory in Denver.

SOME WORDS ABOUT OUR TEAM

  • Mike Mastous

    President

    Michael Mastous is a licensed general contractor in multiple states.  Mike has a storied career in franchising and insurance restoration. He played a pivotal role in the success of 2 franchises, one of which being international and the other national.  It was with these two firms where Mike first saw the need for a full-service contractor-led restoration concept and began planning for what is now the Delta Restoration Services® franchise system.  His skill set was rounded out by serving as a consultant to the insurance industry on multi-million dollar claims including those occurring during Hurricane Katrina, Charlie and Andrew.  Mike is married and lives in Lafayette, Colorado.
