Paul Davis Restoration of Santa Clarita is a
Business or Home Owner's Best Friend on their Worst Day

The list of reasons business owners and homeowners alike call the multi-award-winning Paul Davis Restoration of Santa Clarita Team after they've experienced a property damage loss like water, fire, mold, smoke and more are numerous - but the response is always the same: "We're on our way!"
Local Paul Davis Restoration owners Joel and Susan Moss have managed to set their company apart in a way that has translated to an ever-expanding referral base of thrilled commercial business owners, homeowners, landlords, insurance agents, realtors and more. "The greatest honor," says Joel, "is hearing from a new client that a friend or contractor gave them our card and said, 'Don't bother calling anyone else. They'll take care of you.'"
That means something different in every case; no two damages are alike. "The consistency, however, can be found in our lightning-fast response times; in our ability to reduce the stress that's inherent in these situations; to streamline paperwork and phone calls so that we're not further inconveniencing a client; and our accessibility - you can always reach us for questions or guidance," explains Joel, a licensed contractor with decades of experience. "When it comes to restoration, we're known for premier, top-tier service. We're fast and provide high-quality restoration services that prioritize your safety and comfort while also being aesthetically pleasing. We put everything where we found it so that life gets back to normal as fast as possible."
But don't take Joel's word for it! With only five-star Google and Yelp reviews - and hundreds of outstanding customer satisfaction testimonials on their website - Paul Davis Restoration of Santa Clarita is redefining what it means to be a Restoration Company. And earning the "Best Of" title from readers of The Signal six years in a row is icing on the cake!
As a full-service company, Paul Davis Restoration of Santa Clarita takes care of their customers from the very beginning of the property damage loss to the very end when the project is complete. Not only are you saving time and stress by only communicating with one contractor the entire time, but your Paul Davis Restoration team will also work directly with your insurance provider - so you don't have to.

Chadwick Boseman's Estate is Finally Closing
"Black Panther" star Chadwick Boseman died in 2020. Even though he was diagnosed with cancer, he failed to prepare an estate plan during his life. Instead, his widow was forced to go through probate. In the end, the probate will have lasted more than two years, even though the case was filed immediately after his death and the family was not fighting. For the last two years, everything filed with the court is a public document, available for download from the court website.
Although most middle-class people won't have an estate of the size and celebrity of Chadwick Boseman's, there are important lessons that can be learned. The most important lesson is to invest in an estate plan while you can. Just a little preparation during your lifetime can avoid years of probate. Without an estate plan, your family can spend years in court, even if there is no fighting.
The next lesson is that a trust-based plan is private. If Chadwick Boseman had prepared a trust, then there would be little to no reporting on his personal affairs. Reporters would not be reporting specifics about the estate property and heirs. Even though most people are not as famous, there is somebody, whether a family member or a hungry real estate agent or a con artist, who is interested in gathering information about your public affairs. Keep your private affairs private by using a trust to transfer property instead of the court.
