Introducing the HighGround Family of Restoration Brands

IRVING, TEXAS — HighGround Restoration Group, Inc., is pleased the to announce its new name and logo. The company was initially formed in February of 2020 with the platform acquisition of Dry Force LLC, a Texas-based water restoration and reconstruction leader with locations in Dallas, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio. After a successful year in 2021 of adding five best-in-market brands to create a national platform, the company launched the HighGround brand in 2022. HighGround serves as the umbrella for the entire group while each individual company retains its brand equity in the market.

Ben Balsley, HighGround’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Our vision is to build a company where great brands thrive and elevate to next-level performance. We will do this by serving our employees, customers, and partners and creating opportunities to leverage national scale for local execution. I couldn’t be more excited about our brand teams and HighGround platform and the growth opportunities in front of us.”

In addition to its initial investment in Dry Force, HighGround has also partnered with the following restoration brands: Cleanup & Total Restoration (CTR), Power Dry, More Floods, DRIRITE, and Northeast Power Dry. These brands represent every region of the US and HighGround is actively seeking to add brands and partner with leaders that share its focus on service and growth.
