About the Founder & Owner of Our Firm

Here is Greg Philo’s story in his own words:

In 1983, my career as a remodeler started in the Pearl District in Portland, Oregon. At 18 years old, I had a lot to learn, but cutting my teeth doing all phases of remodeling on historic Portland buildings accelerated my learning and skill level.

As the years passed, the projects kept coming, and a natural progression took place. My emphasis became high-end, detailed remodeling of homes in the Lake Oswego area. My forté became woodworking, finish-work, and management of the complete job.

Having this extensive background led to a Project Management role for a large, high-end home builder. This led to Street of Dreams homes and other notable large-scale projects. In 2005, I started working as a Project Manager for a fire restoration company, which led to a realization of my future. Restoration became my specialty and passion. Since then, I have successfully completed hundreds of fire, water, wind and smoke restoration projects on every kind of structure imaginable.

I started this company knowing my experience and my firefighting background were a perfect and unique marriage for this industry. My understanding of fire behavior and C/O structures gives me a distinct advantage in the way I help our business approach restoration projects. I have designed my firm with core principles that ensure our success and build a reputation for quality, integrity and satisfied customers.
