Expertise You Can Rely On

Help for All Types of Water Damage

Water damage can arise from numerous situations including broken pipes, frozen pipes, ice dams, malfunctioning appliances, leaking roofs, storm damage and more. Regardless the cause, water is destructive and causes significant damage in a relatively short period of time.

Don’t make the mistake of attempting water damage cleanup yourself. Get professional help to locate all damp areas and ensure it is dried before it turns into a bigger problem. 

Broken Pipes and Frozen Pipes

When you have a broken pipe or a frozen pipe that bursts and floods your home, it is easy to panic.  The good news is Challis Restoration is able to provide emergency services to mitigate the damage and dry your home. Broken pipes occur when there is damage, or if the pipe freezes and bursts. Preventing water damage from frozen pipes and broken pipes is possible, and prevention includes proper maintenance and taking steps to prevent frozen pipes during especially cold weather.

Ice Dams

Ice dams occur during cold weather when heat escaping your home causes snow on the roof to melt, but when this water re-freezes it causes an ice dam that traps water and allows it to pool on your roof and seep into your home. Adding extra insulation in your attic can prevent ice dams by preventing heat from escaping and melting the snow, and can help keep your energy costs down, too.

Are Saying

Challis Construction replaced my roof and siding after hail damage was done. This was my first time dealing with hail damage and using my homeowner's insurance. Dean, the owner, was extremely helpful and patient. He worked with the insurance company and explained everything to me. He has endless knowledge and is extremely thorough, ensuring excellent service and results. The crew was professional, respectful and kind, and the quality of work done is outstanding. They paid attention to every detail. Challis Construction is by far down the best company I have ever worked with and would recommend them to anyone!

- Andrea Helfrich

Dean Challis and his crew delivered an exceptional level of customer service and quality workmanship repairing our home after a damaging storm. Challis Restoration Services was initially recommended to me by my neighbor. But I have relied on them for additional projects and with good reason. This company is operated by a family with integrity! I will call on them in the future.

- Kelly Visnak

Challis restoration has been our “go to” when we have had an issue with water heater and burst kitchen pipe. He was highly recommended by a Coralville business. We are so grateful for his responsiveness and attention to details. Definitely FIVE STAR service!

- Alice Scott

When the waterline broke in one of my rentals, I had no idea who I was going to turn to. After walking through the house I knew I need a professional to handle the task of clean up. With Challis Restoration I got even more than I could have hoped for service. He not only handled the clean up and prep work. He also completed all the new finish work needed. Mr. Challis keep me up to date on the progress of all the work with photos, text, phone calls. With my busy schedule I was glad to have Challis Restoration on the job. I never had to worry. The finish work was far beyond my expectations. One call is all it takes.

- Bobby Giese

We recently had a building damaged by fire beyond repair in Wilton, IA. The building is located several hours from our company's headquarters. Given the distance we turned to a local lumber yard to ask for recommendations for a good contractor. They recommended Dean with Challis Restoration Services. We couldn’t have been luckier! Dean was excellent to work with. Dean did everything he said he would and more. He was always on time. He communicated with us over the phone and email with pictures every step of the way. Dean did all of the leg work securing necessary permits and working with the insurance company. Dean came in on schedule as promised, and on budget. The building turned out fantastic and is quality work. I would recommend Dean and Challis to anyone looking for a quality contractor. Thanks Dean!!

- Mike Larson

They got my roof done in one day and they cleaned everything up when they were done. I would recommend this company.

- Nancy Rawlings

Dean was fantastic with his workmanship and he was very professional and friendly! I’d recommend Challis Restoration to anyone needing anything done! In my opinion there’s no one that matches his qualifications in construction! Dean rebuilt my garage after it burned down and did wonderful work! Nobody works on my home but Challis Restoration!

- James Charves

With the Derecho storm of August 2020, the winds caused damage to the Rochester United Methodist Church siding. Challis Restoration Services were awesome in restoring the church. GREAT JOB.

- Gary Stuhr

Challis restoration is a great company, not only are they there as soon as you need them and get the problem fixed as fast as they can, but the owner was also leaving for a trip and turned around to come help in the need of the crisis and met me here in the middle of the night when he was already 5 hours away. Even though his employees already had it covered until the next morning. They are always just a phone call away! Highly recommended!

- Dave Sweeney

Thank goodness for Challis Restoration Services! After getting back from vacation my front lawn was beginning to literally look like a swamp after finding out the city water curb stop shut off valve was leaking water into my lawn. After a nightmare of calling many contractors and not having any luck to get some one out there quickly. I thank God I got ahold Dean, he showed up same day and instantly began the process to take care of my unfortunate situation. Dean and Cody did such a great job and were quick and efficient. My yard looks fabulous now. You can’t even tell it was a construction sight & they dug 6 feet down to repair the city curb stop water valve shut off. I Highly recommend!!

- Ivan Rangel

Challis Restoration is one of the best around, if not the best. My house was built in 1909. Dean is knowledgeable about restoration and reconstruction of vintage homes. The workmanship is top quality and he uses high grade materials. Dean is friendly as well as professional. I will continue to use Challis Restoration for all my house projects.

- Theresa Zumbahlen

Absolutely amazing! Folks, listen carefully...Challis Restoration Services provided me with the best quality service I have every received and I get a lot of household services done every year. I do not live in Iowa, or Tipton area for that matter, but I was referred to Challis and I could not have been happier. He provided a timely quote and recommend an exceptional plan to restore the look of my father's home. Due to Challis's work, my father's home sold in two days!! He worked with me from a distance with no problems at all.

- Thomas Buettner

Service was EXCELLENT! Listened to my concerns and did the work in a very professional manner. Would definately use them again and recommend them to others.

- Justin B.

I very much appreciated that Dean was never “too busy” to contact me or take my calls. He never made me feel like I was bothering him, which seems to be how many people are these days. He also contacted me.

- Stacy S.

Dean & staff showed promptly and stayed till the job was done. The staff was courteous and friendly. I could not say enough positive comments about Challis & Dean. I would recommend him for any job, big or small.
