FROM LAUNDRY TO RESTORATION AND DESIGN BUILDER
TRANSITIONING TO BUILDING
Most importantly, our company’s success is built on trust. Indeed, it was Don Hudek that began DEL MAR 42 years ago—and the story is an interesting one! For before the company focus was on damage restoration & design building, Don ran a dry cleaning service. He built relationships with the community by cleaning their clothes. No doubt, this is one of the ultimate customer service business! Hence, Don’s customers built trust with him on the foundations of reliability, truth, and character. Moreover, with a deep focus on personal and business ethics, Don would provide personal exceptional quality service in a timely manner. In 1977, Don Hudek started taking care of people at a whole new level.
“A JOB IS NOT DONE UNTIL THE CUSTOMER IS SATISFIED!”
In 1978 DEL MAR became a Restoration & Design Builder Company. Moreover and very quickly, it began its climb as one of Chicagolands premier restoration and design builder contractors. But more importantly, the new company’s moral footing copied Don’s ethical values. For this reason, even today, Del Mar focuses on building relationships, earning the customer’s trust, and providing exceptional service on a timely basis in our mission. In short, the motif we treat our customers like family and carry this over to each job site.
SAVING LIVES THROUGH RESTORATION AND DESIGN BUILDING
TRAGEDY BUILDS CHARACTER
Don passed away in 2013 and left the business to his son, Mike Hudek. Sadly, right after Mike’s dad died, his sister followed. Mike had now experienced two very serious losses. It is said that loss is a universal teacher and carries with it compassion and kindness if one allows it. In times of loss, it’s natural to give up, yet Mike’s family values forged by faith turn weakness to strength; and through faith and love allowed DEL MAR’s mission to help others in need carry on. In honor of Don and his family, Del Mar has since become a vessel for doing good; forged by a father’s love for doing what was good; Likewise now, his son carries this message of hope and love to each customer suffering loss.
“TO GAIN TRUST, WE MUST BE BELIEVABLE SO THAT ANOTHER WILL HAVE CONFIDENCE IN OUR ABILITY TO KEEP OUR WORD, DO OUR PART, AND FOLLOW THROUGH ON EXPECTATIONS SET.”
A quick response team, accurate estimates, professional craftsmanship, and our word makes DEL MAR a leader in FIRE, WATER, and STORM Restoration.
