“I’ve Always Thought That People Are Generally Good, Honest, And Trustworthy… And We Started Purpose Driven Restoration For Those People Who Want A Company That Matches Their Values.” – Sean Peters

Our Beginnings

Before founding Purpose Driven Restoration in 2009, Sean Peters worked for a variety of contractors and has had years working in different branches of the construction field. However, he found contractors regularly taking advantage of homeowners and employees in order to increase profits. After seeing the abuses contractors routinely committed, Sean determined he would establish a company which would have real integrity– a company with the ultimate purpose of treating people right.

Now, Purpose Driven Restoration’s reputation as a trusted company for home remodeling, storm damage and emergency repair work is well known throughout the Twin Cities and surrounding communities – and we’re growing fast! Since 2009, we have served thousands of people both in Minnesota and abroad. We are also accredited by the Better Business Bureau, are an LP Build Smart Platinum Level contractor and are a member of the Minnesota Association of Exterior Specialists, to name a few.

We Value Our Employees

At Purpose Driven Restoration, our employees are part of a smooth running operation that puts people first, both clients and employees. Since the beginning, Purpose Driven Restoration has painstakingly built a dynamic team and demanded the best work they could muster for every project, no matter how big or small. Every Project Manager has extensive experience working in the field and possess special training on specific products so they can ensure the highest quality of work is completed at every job.

Executive Vice President of Therapy, Bailey came to work for PDR at the ripe old age of 84 days. Originally in charge of cleaning up leftovers on the floor, he was quickly promoted to the position of door sniffer. After a couple of months, with the increased number of projects being handled due to PDR’s excellent craftsmanship, Bailey was promoted to PDR’s Stress Supervisor. With his astute handling of this position, Sean and Tom quickly saw his potential for an upper administrative position and Bailey is now the youngest Vice President in the history of the home improvement industry.
