PHC employee retires

Join us as we say thank you and happy retirement to long time employee Kate Siletzky. Kate joined PHC in 1984 not long after we opened our doors. Kate wore many hats for PHC over the years. She has primarily been our accountant, but she also wrote estimates on numerous fire and water damage jobs, answered phones taking losses as they were phoned in and then got the job information to managers long before cell phones were available.

We will miss you Kate!

Water damage repairs

Usually, doing laundry and having to return to work are the only stresses you face when you return home from a long weekend or spring break at the beach. Unfortunately, this was not the case for one of our homeowners in the Raleigh area. PHC started a job over the weekend for a family who had just returned from the beach to find water flowing out of their house. A plumbing problem caused water to run for an unknown amount of time resulting in water damage to both the floor coverings and the subflooring in their home.

Remembering the 2011 Tornadoes and the damage they caused

Most of us in central North Carolina remember where we were on April 16, 2011 when the deadly tornadoes touched down in Sanford, Raleigh, Fayetteville and other areas of the triangle area. Whether we were leaving a little league baseball game in Fayetteville or hunkered down in our basements in Buies Creek, our PHC family was incredibly fortunate to escape that day with only minor damage to our homes and some tree debris in our yards; especially since we saw tornadoes touch down within a 20 mile radius in all directions of our homes and warehouse. After the storms had passed, mo

Spring rains bring threats of flooding and other water damage

Spring officially sprung this week bringing with it warmer weather, budding flowers and trees, lots of pollen and the threat of afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. While we hope everyone is enjoying the longer days, PHC wants to remind everyone to keep an eye out for the spring rains that could bring flash floods or water damage to Raleigh and other areas of the triangle. Flash floods can occur when there are drought-like conditions or by intense rainfall causing low-lying areas to flood in less than 6 hours.
