Our Story

Mark Combs and Matt Kittleson started their careers over fifteen years ago as staff adjusters for large insurance companies.  In 2015, while Mark was an Independent Adjuster and Matt was a Project Director, they started a conversation about innovating restoration services for building owners and insurance adjusters. With a commitment to integrity they created a restoration company focused on making and keeping promises. It is from that commitment that Harmony Restoration was born.
