Join the National Insurance Restoration Council (NIRC) by completing the membership application provided below.

The NIRC is dedicated to strengthening industry accountability and professional improvement. In addition to setting a high benchmark for our industry, our customers, insurers, the public, and regulators, NIRC gives the restoration industry a strong, united voice in dealing with the insurance industry and regulators, and a prominent voice in every community our members serve.

Like you, we are aware that insurance laws and insurance company policies can harm rather than help consumers. We know that insurance companies can limit or deny legitimate damage claims. NIRC fights for consumer rights, particularly when policy endorsements have been changed without clear explanation, when insurance liabilities are limited unreasonably, when consumers don’t get the claims coverage they deserve. We insist on rules and regulations from every level of government and from insurance providers that put property owners first.

We work to improve the industry too. You don’t have to be in our business long to realize that in some corners of the industry, things have been deteriorating. In our world, there is no place for contractors who bill insurance companies for work not done, particularly for those who collect customer checks and then skip town never to be heard from again. There is no place for shoddy workmanship, no place for the application of inferior materials. The NIRC mark of trust and the members who stand solidly behind it, are there to prevent abuse and raise standards throughout the storm restoration industry.

And the presence of NIRC members and the NIRC organization’s resources at major storm events and catastrophes, help all of our contractors and members stand out from the crowd. Big storm events bring a flood of contractors looking for opportunities. And even without storms, those whose properties have been hit with water, mold, fire, vandalism and the many other causes of property damage that may be eligible for insurance claims, now have a way to sweep aside the marketing mayhem that often besets our industry. With NIRC, storm victims and property owners, even with everyday restoration needs, can find us, know that our members are certified, that we fight for consumer rights, and that we can be trusted.

The National Insurance Restoration Council is the one national organization that speaks for its members and their customers with one voice. We set standards, insist on adherence to a code of ethics, educate our members and consumers, and fight for what’s right.
