Our Company

We are a family owned organization that specializes in animal damage restoration, animal trapping, and insurance negotiation/coordination. This includes insurance work, raccoon, bat, and squirrel damage to attics, and animal entry prevention. Restoring the damage done to your home as a result of these animals is the focal point of what we do.

Many companies in the restoration business started out only doing animal trapping, and only added on restoration as an additional revenue source, but not Newnam Restoration Services. We are experts in restoration first and foremost. Because of this, restoring your home is our priority, not an afterthought.


Newnam Restoration Services stands behind all of the work we do. Because of that, we offer a limited lifetime warranty on general workmanship (e.g., insulation install or drywall repairs), one year warranty on bats and raccoon re-entry warranty. The limited lifetime warranty covers any kind of workmanship issue. The only thing not covered is normal wear and tear – for example, as a building ages and shifts, cracks may develop in the drywall we repaired. This is beyond our control, and understandably would not be covered under our warranty. The one year bat and animal re-entry warranty cover bats re-entering the attic in general, and raccoons re-entering the same spot they entered originally. This warranty is void if there is an event that creates a new opening such as tree hitting the roof, wind removing siding, etc. These warranties cover all Newnam Restoration Services labor and materials.

In addition to the Newnam Restoration Services warranties, much of the work we do may be covered by a manufacturers warranty. For example, Owens-Corning offers a warranty on the insulation we install.

Bottom line – if you have any questions, contact us. We will do everything possible to take care of you!
