Our Story


It was 1992 when Terry Moorhouse and Trevor Forder founded Okanagan Restoration Services Ltd.

The motivation? The realization there was a distinct need in the Okanagan marketplace for superior restoration services, and the winning of a “Gold Rush” scratch-and-win ticket. The winnings jump-started the company, which in its infancy had but three employees and a single restoration van.

Today, Okanagan Restoration Services is a leading locally-owned and operated restoration company in the Valley, providing guaranteed service using leading-edge technologies and equipment – all executed and delivered by trained, professional (and friendly!) restoration experts.

Okanagan Restoration Services now employs 75-plus restoration professionals and has a fleet of over 40 service vehicles.

"Attn: Kyle Goulet Project Manager Okanagan Restoration Good Morning Kyle, I am a retired Principal in School District #83 North Okanagan - Shuswap. Carl Cooper, the Principal of South Broadview, was away this week and District management asked me to look after the school in Carl's absence. Over the course of the week I have had the opportunity to watch Chad, Heather and their assembled teams work on remediating the damage caused by the recent fire. I'd like to pass my first hand observations on to you. The entire team's observable work ethic and attention to detail is impressive. Over the course of the week I have watched them meticulously clean everything from ceiling t bars and rafters, to miles of electrical and telecommunication cables, to brick walls, staplers and bulletin boards. Nothing appears to escape their attention. Every edge, nook and cranny gets a cleaning and every member of the team appears to be working hard. I am confident that by the conclusion of this restoration they will have thoroughly cleaned every observable and non observable surface in the rooms and halls effected by the recent fire. Equally impressive is the apparent pride each of the crew members take in their work and the friendly, thoughtful manner with which they interact with me, their fellow team memebers, and other contractors working in the building. South Broadview students, parents and staff will be the beneficiaries of their hard work, attention to detail and dedication. I am very hopeful the restoration of the school will be on time and budget. I know the entire school community will be grateful to have the school restored in a competent and timely manner. Please feel free to pass on my comments and gratitude to your team. Respectfully Steve Atkins cc Carl Cooper, Principal Glenn Borthistle, Superintendent of Schools Wendy Woodhurst, Director of Instruction Steve Bennett, Manager of Facilities Bev Snow, Building Services Manager "
