He explains it best himself: “A huge reason I am so accomplished is mostly the reason why I do what I do. My real “why” is making other people’s “why” come true. I have always had the ability to sell someone better than they can sell themselves and to pinpoint their strengths and weaknesses.”
But, his decision to found Fire & Hail Restoration likely changed everything for him. Before starting his company, he announced, “Proud to announce my Restoration business finally! After being in the restoration industry for so long, working for corporate, mom-and-pop, and more. I’ve decided to start my own company and do things the right way! Specializing in Fire mitigation, Asbestos abatement, Water and sewage damage, Roofing, and Full construction!”
Fire & Hail specialized in fire mitigation and all environmental abatement in the great city of Denver and its surrounding. The business proudly announces, “We are also a full General Contractor who focuses on the reconstruction of residential and commercial properties. Being in charge of sub-contracting for years in Colorado, I was able to see which contractors, estimators, and crews could represent this company with integrity! These are all who work for Fire and Hail Restoration.”
In 2021, Rico founded another company named Red Hawk Roofing.
Rico León has experienced all aspects of the restoration process from being on the front lines of sewage removal in basements to managing crews on 7 figure commercial restoration projects. Transitioning to the role as owner of his own Colorado-based restoration business, he leverages countless years of experience in the restoration industry to provide restoration expertise to property owners throughout the Front Range of Colorado, prioritizing industry proficiency, customer service, and quality of work throughout the restoration process.
