What We're All About.

Our mission is to provide exceptional service to our customers during their time of need.

The formula for accomplishing our mission is woven throughout our interactions with our customers and each other.


We set clear expectations and provide clear explanations.


From employee-customer relationships to leadership-employee relationships to employee-employee relationships, we recognize the role of clear communication in our success. Through our experience helping people in their great time of need, we have established processes that provide comfort, confidence and clarity throughout our communications.

We listen.

We're here for you.

We do what we say we will do.

After opening in June 1982, Charles Hays and his two sons, Mark and Brian, quickly acquired a reputation for integrity and quality workmanship in Indianapolis and the surrounding counties. Over the course of the next 36 years, with the commitment of our leadership, management team and employees, our dedication to integrity has helped us significantly grow our service area. Now with eight separate locations, 140 employees and 120 vehicles, we work nationwide, taking our customer-centric, local approach to customers and communities in need of restoration services.

My! How we have grown!

Eight locations and we're still growing.

We put the needs of others first and celebrate great collaborations.

Customer and employee feedback is essential and serves to help us on our journey to continuous improvement. Recognizing that perfection is not realistic, we strive to learn from each other. To that end, each customer is invited to review his or her experience of working with Hays + Sons. Both internal and external feedback greatly contribute to the whole team’s ability to better serve others.

We set the bar by how well we recognize, respect and appreciate our colleagues and customers.

Hays + Sons employees’ professionalism goes beyond outward appearance and manners. And our respect for them and our customers goes beyond admiration. Employees and customers are our heroes, and we believe that they should know it. From publicly highlighting employee accomplishments to thanking customers with drawings for gift cards, we don’t want any act of kindness to go unnoticed. Heroes are everywhere, and in the fall, Hays + Sons sponsors a non-profit company to attend an NFL football game and tailgate party to show our appreciation to these heroes in our community.

It's all about the people.

Water Damage Restoration

With the capability to handle all aspects of a restoration job, from clean-up and mitigation to restoration and finishing touches, and with the heart to help people in their greatest time of need, restoration done right is our collective passion–no matter what the project.

New beginnings start here.

We can't replace memories, but we can help you make new ones.

Watch how a passionate team can make a difference.


We laugh, think, sometimes cry, and without flinching, stand by one another through it all.

Hays + Sons roof team

We are a family-owned business, and we believe that our family grows along with our business. That’s because through the highs and lows, our team has each other’s back and the customer’s back. We embrace each other’s humanity and work through tough times realizing that sometimes, laughter is the best medicine. We have seen the devastation caused by natural and man-made disasters, and we have rejoiced in our ability to restore valued property and lives back to normal. Our experience has formed a bond among us that can only be described by the word family.
