Cousino Restoration has been a trusted name for property restoration in Northwest Ohio & Southeast Michigan for years, but we don’t expect you to just take our word for it. Take a look at our past projects and case studies.
After a thunderstorm hit Bexley, Ohio, on July 13, 2013, a tree from one resident’s yard fell on the house of their neighbor. The result was damage to the chimney and the lower portion over the home where the homeowner sat reading a newspaper. While the homeowner was thankfully unscathed, their property was not.
Branches fell into the room, and rain started pouring down into different parts of the house that were exposed to the elements. The drywall and hardwoods were soon wet.
The homeowner called their insurance adjuster, who then turned to Cousino Restoration for help. Cousino Restoration was there within an hour and removed the tree the next morning while the storm was still going on.
Through this referral, the Bexley homeowner received the help they needed. Their chimney was completely rebuilt from the roof up, the entire roof was replaced, and they resided the whole back of the house. They also redid 1/3 of the lower level ceiling and the entire hardwood floor. Lastly, they re-framed the wall on the second level of the home.
After four months, the homeowner’s house was completely restored.
Chances are, even if you’re not from the Toledo area, you’ve heard of Tony Packo’s. A local staple since the 1930s, this Hungarian restaurant, known for its hot dogs, pickles, and peppers, was made world-famous by actor Jamie Farr in the TV show M*A*S*H.
But fame can’t prevent accidents. And in the restaurant world, when an accident occurs, you need a trusted partner who will work with you and restore your building back to normal as soon as possible.
That’s why Tony Packo’s turned to Cousino Restoration early one morning when a semi-truck suddenly went through the main restaurant building and into the bar/dining area.
Cousino Restoration went to work immediately, shoring up the building while the truck was removed—and doing so in a matter so that the second floor did not collapse. The only day that Tony Packo’s could not stay open was the day of the accident.
But there were other major concerns involved in this accident—one especially being pedestrian traffic for customers entering and exiting the building. There was an extensive amount of work involving scaffolding, materials, and manpower, but Cousino Restoration worked quickly and safely, and all went well without any incidents.
Overall, careful attention was paid to restoring the building back to the original historical detail. Work was done in record time, and the restaurant was kept open every single day afterwards. The entire project was completed without a glitch.
