First Restoration Services “FRS” was started in 1987 by Chris Silliman and Shelley Silliman, a husband and wife duo that live in Brevard, NC. Chris is a fisherman at heart, and loves to go fishing with his two sons, Justin and Shawn. Shelley and Chris are also avid Ohio State University fans, but don’t worry we won’t hold that against them. Chris and Shelley are still active with FRS in the daily operations, and their son, Shawn, will be succeeding Chris and Shelley to make a second-generation family owned company. Shawn’s wife, Kelly Silliman, also works at FRS as one of the managers and will be Shawn’s partner in succeeding Chris and Shelley once they retire. Shawn and Kelly currently reside in Henderson county with their two children.
By having owners that are local, FRS has a commitment to the local community. Since we are not a franchise, we make the commitment to stay local and service our community. Our local commitment starts by helping those in need. FRS has donated our time and services to help numerous homeowners in need of fire and water damage cleanup, cleaning personal items after being damaged, and we even board up houses for the local fire departments after a fire at no cost. Not only that, we continue to give back to the local community financially as well. FRS has donated thousands of dollars to help local charities and non-profits.
FRS touches so many lives on every project we are on. It could be a beautiful new kitchen remodel for first time homeowners, a fire to a family of 5, or a cleaning to your home. Chances are we’re going to be interacting with you, and your family at your home or business, which is a very private space for a lot of people. This is why we take every precaution we can on who is working on our job sites. We run background checks and complete drug screening on all of our employees. This way you, as a homeowner, can have 100% confidence in who will be at your home or business. It’s important to FRS that we take these measures and our customers trust us.
In our mission statement it states, “our goal is to be a trusted pro and friend” and we come to work everyday to fulfill this mission.
