Carrara, a restoration company in Ohio, was originally founded in 1996, and began serving Stark and Summit counties with commercial cleaning, residential cleaning and restoration services. By 1998, the company had added four additional counties, and today controls the Northeast Ohio market, serving all of Cuyahoga and its surrounding counties. Carrara has grown on average 30% in each year of business, and as of 2014 we have moved into the Dayton and Cincinnati market.
As a result of the reconstruction demand from the mitigation business and at the request of one of our major customers, the need for a construction division became apparent and our construction division was founded in 2001. All areas of construction are performed by our associates with the exception of heating, major electrical and plumbing work.
In January 2008, Carrara consolidated all divisions under one umbrella, offering restoration, construction, and residential and commercial cleaning services. The Carrara name was taken from the name of the company president’s late Grandfather, Donato Carrara, who was a successful businessman and role model. The Carrara name is also synonymous with the highest quality marble, which has been used by some of the greatest sculptors in the world, including Michelangelo, who insisted on utilizing only Carrara marble.
In March of the same year, a Columbus office was founded servicing the greater Columbus and Central Ohio markets. Carrara also added a Cincinnati office to cover the Southern and Western cities. Carrara now has the ability to respond to any emergency in Ohio within a few hours.
Starting in 2013, Carrara became an owner with 20 other independent restoration companies of a national restoration group called Restoration Affiliates. Carrara and our partners can handle large losses and weather-related disasters nationwide for commercial clients and insurance carriers alike. Customers of Restoration Affiliates can feel confident in the service and response times of these local restoration companies in Ohio and all their resources.
