From there, Dotson transitioned to the insurance industry, concentrating on restorations of fire or water damaged homes. While working with insurance companies, Dotson gained an understanding and the knowledge of how to work with insurance companies.

Dotson made a return to general contracting in the late 1980s, as remodeling began to gain in popularity. Today, Oregon Builders & Restoration concentrates on kitchen remodels, bathroom remodels, room additions, and accessory dwelling units. Dotson has been implementing the newest trends while still adhering to the tried and true practices that has served him so well. Although Oregon Builders & Restoration do provide occasional emergency services, remodeling and design is now the main area of focus.
Restoration of fire- and water-damaged homes, however, is still part of Oregon Builders & Restoration business. If you have experienced water, fire, flood, or mold damage, Oregon Builders & Restoration can take care of your immediate problem, such as boarding up windows, drying the home out, or mitigating mold. Our unique approach is not to just patch and paint, but to return your property to it’s original condition, using common sense, design, and new materials.
“In my approach to a potential client with a loss is we are not a patch and paint,” Dotson said. “We’re a custom remodeler – we do large-loss projects. Not that we don’t do smaller ones, but we concentrate on mostly larger projects.”
No matter the job – designing a brand new gourmet kitchen, adding a new game room to your home, or building an income property in your home – Oregon Builders & Restoration has built a reputation on quality craftsmanship. If your home has been hit by disaster – flooding, fire, wind, or mold – Rick Dotson and Oregon Builders & Restoration will provide fast response times and unparalleled customer support.
Our motto, after all, is “Help is Here.”
