Who We Are

Fresh Start Restoration is a family owned company with more than 15 years experience in the restoration and construction industry. After working as a Restoration Supervisor in California, U.S.A. for five years, Raz de Picciotto, owner and founder of Fresh Start Restoration, followed his dreams of living near the mountains and moved to beautiful Vancouver, B.C. Since that day Fresh Start Restoration (doing business as 911 Restoration of Vancouver) has consistently delivered the highest quality restoration and construction services available.

Our team of experienced and trained professionals are honest, hard working individuals here to help you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Whether it be water damage, fire restoration, bathroom, kitchen or full house renovations, we have your next project covered from beginning to end.

How we conduct our business is just as important to us as the job itself. Our integrity sets us apart from other restoration companies. At Fresh Start Restoration customer care and satisfaction is our #1 goal. We treat every customer with respect, keeping them informed throughout the entire restoration and renovation process. Our mission is to give every client comfort and peace of mind while delivering fast, beautiful results. We love giving our customers a Fresh Start!

Raz O. de-Picciotto


Raz is the founder and owner of Fresh Start Restoration. He comes from a family of builders and project managers, but his main influence was his father, Samuel, a Construction Inspector with 45+ years of career. With 15 years in the restoration and construction industry, Raz has seen it all. But he is more than a knowledgeable contractor. For Raz, conducting business with integrity is fundamental. Raz acknowledges his social responsibility, and his high ethical standards and professionalism permeate our corporate culture and influence how our employees conduct their work.
