BELFOR Sacramento has the experience and expertise needed to handle any-sized job. A few of the more celebrated recovery projects completed by BELFOR's Sacramento team include:
When the staff from the Gallo Center of the Arts arrived to find the facility affected by a major water event that damaged walls, ceilings, floors, and furniture, the county contacted BELFOR Sacramento to begin selective demolition, cleaning and mitigation. The BELFOR team worked around-the-clock, 24/7, to complete the mitigation and repairs as soon as possible. Gallo Center CEO Lynn Dickerson said, “The project has been handled very well by the county and BELFOR. It’s impressive to see how much has been done and how tidy they are in a very messy job.”
BELFOR Sacramento restored the historic, fire-ravaged McHenry Mansion. The Modesto landmark is the only surviving original Victorian home in the city. Built in 1883, the historic house is not only a local treasure but also a popular destination for tours and catered functions. During one phase of the exterior work, moldings were carefully removed and salvaged for reproduction. It was a slow, painstaking process. The reproduced woodwork had to be cut, tooled and replaced to look like the pieces originally installed in the late 1800’s. All stakeholders were very pleased with the final results. Watch the video.
BELFOR helped to re-open the area's largest shopping mall, the Westfield Galleria in Roseville, California in time for christmas shoppers after an arson fire caused an estimated $55 million in damages. BELFOR was on site before the fire even broke through the room and immediately began mitigation and restoration procedures. With hundreds of technicians working around the clock, the Galleria was able to reopen 130 stores by Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, far exceeding expectations of the mall management company.

BELFOR is an ardent supporter of many great local charities and causes including the Children’s Hospital of Central California, the Run for Courage Fights Human Trafficing, the California State Capital, the McHenry Mansion, and the Gallo Theater of the Arts.
BELFOR Sacramento was honored to join the Color the Skies Foundation to help deliver a $25,000 check to the Children’s Hospital Central California. The Sacramento office has been a proud participant and sponsor of Color the Skies, a hot air balloon and kite festival, for the last seven years. BELFOR Sacramento Project Manager George Halpin has been the official Kite Show Director at the annual Hot Air Balloon & Kite Festival for eight years. Color the Skies (colortheskies.com) takes a high portion of the Hot Air Balloon & Kite Festival net proceeds each year and donates it to the Children’s Hospital Central California, a not-for-profit, state-of-the-art children’s hospital whose physicians perform more than 11,000 pediatric surgeries a year.
BELFOR participated in an event for the Sacramento Area Disaster Response Network (SADRN) at Rancho Cordova Library when more than 30 library and museum representatives gathered to see a disaster supply pod stocked with boxes, cleaning supplies, power cords and other emergency supplies. The supply pod is kept at the Rancho Cordova Library where area libraries and museums are able to access the pod supplies as needed.
California State Library Thanks BELFOR for Restoring Rare Books
BELFOR Sacramento stepped in to help the California State Library after a water leak affected approximately 250 rare books, some from the 1800s. Some less damaged books were dried on site, but others needed immediate special attention. In a social media post, a spokesperson for the library wrote:
"The State Library – and the State of California – owe a debt to State Parks and BELFOR Property Restoration of Sacramento,” said Greg Lucas, California State Librarian. “Both acted quickly and generously. BELFOR, in particular, made their freeze‐drying equipment available to restore these irreplaceable volumes.”
BELFOR Sacramento contacted the State Library to volunteer its services to extract water from the most seriously damaged books. “BELFOR was able to utilize our Mobile Thermal Vacuum Freeze Dryer unit to restore the multiple volumes of rare books, and we are always happy to help our local community,” said Melanie Uhrenholt of BELFOR.
