D.W. Ranney and Sons, Inc. is central Ohio's oldest and most experienced provider of restoration services including fire damage and water damage related issues


“Dear Prospective Customer of D.W. Ranney:

This is an unsolicited letter recommending D.W. Ranney Construction Company for their professionalism, expertise, scheduling, and respect for their customers' 1897 home while repairs were in progress in June 2013. Their crew was prompt, stayed with the job until completed, and finished the repairs with impeccable quality. From start to finish, the job only required us being out of our kitchen for 8 days!

We experienced water damage when a plumber replaced a water supply line on a second floor toilet above the kitchen. About one hour after the plumber departed, water was discovered dripping through the kitchen drywall ceiling onto the Brazilian Cherry kitchen floor. Damages resulted to the 6" water-soaked insulation (sound attention) between the bathroom floor and kitchen. The floor in the historic had some unique characteristics that had to be accommodated in its replacement.

I have completed extensive renovations of our historic home, three family members' homes, our industrial properties, and a National Register of Historic Places veterans' hall so I have considerable knowledge of practices, materials and contractor relations although that was not my main field. I am a retired military engineer with construction knowledge. I would highly recommend D.W. Ranney to your consideration. You may call us for additional information or questions or send an email.”
Dr. Calvin L. Taylor

“…Being without power for four days and trying to contact the different companies to deal with the clean-up and repairs needed in various areas was somewhat traumatic. However, now that all of the repairs are complete. (the old tree that caused some of the major damage, and the debris from huge fallen limbs are gone and replaced with a new young tree, the electric wire is attached to the new mast pole, and the chain link fence has been replaced AND the new roof has been installed), I can sit back and take the time to appreciate the kindness you and your company have shown, not to mention the expert work done on my house…”
-Rita M.

“…I just wanted to again thank you and your employees for the superb workmanship and conscientious job that was done. As you know, after the ordeal my mother had been through with the damages which resulted from a negligent roofer, the last thing she needed was problems with restoration work. Since she moved out for those two weeks, your men secured the house every night, did all the work which was promised unsupervised, and left the house cleaned up and in order…Again, my mother and I thank you for the professional job which was done by your company.”
-Cindy D.

“…I had no idea what I was getting into by telling the insurance man I wanted you to repair my house, but as I look around the house this morning, I can see that Tom gave me the number of the best company for the job and that was you. I just wanted to thank you again as I recall the events of last year and the way you did such quality work to my house that we look at daily.”
-Jeff & Laura B.

“My wife and I wish to compliment your company on the repair of the damage to our home…We appreciate the personal and thorough attention which you gave to the problem, and the quality of materials and workmanship which you provided.”
-Dan S.

“…From the beginning of the project, I was given daily access to the site and was quite pleased with the level of professionalism exhibited by the Ranney crew as well as the subcontractors that were hired. I was also asked on many occasions about choices and alternative construction techniques that enhanced and improved the final structure well beyond my imaginings. The house is beautiful, oder-free, safer and much more livable than I would ever believe possible. It is without reservation that I would recommend the services of D.W. Ranney & Associates to anyone who has suffered a house fire or is in need for an excellent general contractor. Thanks to Dave and Jack Ranney and their crews for a job well done!”
-Jack M.

“To start off what was going to be a lovely day, the ice and snow caused my carport to give way. As I looked outside I thought what shall I do, then God sent my guardian angels, yes, that’s you. You rescued a girl who was in deep distress, who didn’t know what to do about the ‘mess’. Your ‘team’ quickly assessed what it was all about, and to top it off they got my car out. In your type of work you probably meet all kinds in your field, but you treated me with kindness, didn’t act like you were trying to increase your yield. So this is my way of saying a heartfelt THANKS to all of you, I appreciate what you did, and I’m so grateful too. When the opportunity arises that someone needs a contractor of the best kind, I’ll give them the name of RANNY & SONS, and tell them you’re the best people they can find! God bless you and thanks again.”
-Cheryl R.

“I would like to compliment you on the repairs to our home following hail damage. Nearly every home in our neighborhood was damaged in this storm, and I have had the opportunity to observe many work crew over the past months. I was very impressed by your crew who came to our home. They were polite, clean-cut, and efficient. Even my children commented on your crew who were on time and professional. Other crews in the area have left trash, used rough language, and played their radios loudly. By contrast, your crew didn’t leave so much as a footprint in my flowerbeds and was careful to place my patio furniture back in please. In addition to their professionals, your crew did an excellent job repairing the damage to our siding and window. We would definitely use your company for future repairs or remodeling.”
-Sara & Jeff S.

“Thank you for the job you did for me. A special ‘thanks’ to Jack for answering so many calls and stopping by to answer questions. Then a very big special ‘thank you’ to Phil and his group for their hard work. Also ’thank you‘ to Dave, Don and everyone”
-Erlene C.

“Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the fine job that you and your company completed after the July 11th fire we had in our home. Your professionalism has been quite refreshing and greatly appreciated. If we have any contractor needs in the future (not related to a fire) :) we will not hesitate to call you. Thank you again!”
-Susan & Bill B.

“…We are very pleased with the professional way your men did their work, particularly the wall papering and refinishing of the overhead cabinets and the painting of the ceiling and walls. We would gladly recommend your firm to others with similar home repair needs.”
-James & Margaret S.
