Looking for an option beyond the Navy, Claud hired his brother-in-law Skip Yadon to build a home for he and his wife. After being involved in the process Claud convinced Skip and his business partner/brother Dennis to go into business together building homes and in March 1981 Kings-Men Construction was born. Claud is active in his church and community and serves as a member of the Skagit / Island Counties Builders Association. In his spare time, he enjoys hiking, camping, fishing, and hunting.

After graduating from Wasilla High School, he was drafted and enlisted in the US Navy in 1965 where he served as an Air Traffic Controller until his Honorable discharge in 1973.

You hope to never find yourself in a situation where your home requires insurance restoration services but something has happened – you have experienced damage to your home or business, and now you want prompt, knowledgeable experts handling your restoration process. This is where an insurance restoration expert like Kings-Men Construction comes in. We have years of experience in dealing with the push and pull between insurance companies.
Kings-Men Construction has been in the insurance restoration business since 2007 and has become a leading expert in the field. Insurance companies frequently turn to Kings-Men to get their customers back to normal quickly and efficiently. We gather all the data you need to turn in a solid insurance claim.

What is a Restoration Contractor?
A restoration contractor is essentially a general contractor, but we work closely with insurance companies to fix damage caused by a disaster, such as a fire, storm, or flood. General contractors usually fix cosmetic issues around a home or commercial building, such as replacing the carpet that the owner wants to update. A restoration contractor would replace carpet that was heavily damaged by water from a burst pipe.
Experiencing a water, fire, mold, or trauma disaster is upsetting, but it is also the perfect opportunity to get the new bathroom, kitchen, or other remodel that you have always wanted.
Insurance companies rarely pay for improvements, but if you have Kings-Men Construction advocating to get you the most in your claim, you get closer and closer to the remodel you have dreamed of. For example, if you had laminate countertops and can recoup that money, you can then pay a little more out of pocket to upgrade and get those new granite or quartz countertops you have always wanted.
Once you know how much your insurance company will pay, you can begin thinking about whether restoration or remodeling is right for you. Knowing the insurance company will pay $X, we can confirm that the money will replace X, Y, and Z. We can also estimate remodeling scenarios if you want to go above and beyond the basic restoration.
If you have experienced a devastating event like a fire or flood damage, you want someone you can trust to repair and restore your property to its original glory. We understand that when you call us, it may be the worst time of your life, which is why we strive to be punctual, professional, and empathetic.
If you are looking for a professional, trustworthy and competent company to carry out your construction needs, don’t look any further.
