About Us

Class One Disaster Recovery started in February of 1987. Brent Bowthorpe was working as a carpenter at the time and wanted to enter an industry where there was opportunity to learn and build a business from the ground up.

Initially Class One focused on the cleaning industry and gained a reputation with designers, property managers, furniture stores and customers for taking on the most difficult cleaning problems. This focus on solving challenging jobs really moved us to the disaster repair industry. Initially our team took on the myriad of cleaning challenges that disaster jobs create.

Eventually Brent’s background in construction took Class One Disaster Recovery right back into the construction industry. The same passion for learning and challenge has taken the company to be recognized as a leader in clean-up, repair, construction defects, and engineering  issues.

Today Class One Disaster Recovery is a full service restoration company with expertise in construction, cleaning, mold damage remediation and water damage restoration.  Our team not only does clean-up and repair for property damage but also provides forensic investigation, expert consultation and professional witness for the disaster repair industry.
