Our History

A&J was founded in 1984 by Kent and Lynn Rawhouser. A two-person team they started out by going door-to-door selling acoustical ceiling tile cleaning services.

Thirty years later, A&J is now a leader in the restoration industry serving all of south-central Wisconsin.

As home and business owners themselves, Kent and Lynn understand the stress you’re under when facing a restoration emergency. A&J will help you get back on your feet as quickly as possible with a unique combination of expertise and compassion.

A Word from Kent


Thank you for checking out A&J Property Restoration.

Since my wife and I started A&J 30 years ago, I have worked to keep A&J on the cutting edge of the restoration industry, ensuring we follow the highest standards of restoration practices.

While I take pride in A&J, I am first a husband, father and grandfather. It is remembering that my first commitment is to God, then to my family and then my business that allows me to wholeheartedly serve the communities of south-central Wisconsin with their disaster recovery needs.

Every day we focus on serving companies and homeowners, helping them get back on their feet as quickly as possible after a loss.

Educating our clients is a part of our everyday practice and as the owner of A&J Property Restoration, I can assure you that it is our priority to make sure you understand what restoration work we are doing and why.

We look forward to the opportunity to serve you and your business in the future.
