Welcome Nathan, Kurt and Cody!

We would like to welcome our newest owners to the 1-800 WATER DAMAGE family!

Please meet Kurt Gardner and Cody Bass, owners of 1-800 WATER DAMAGE of South Birmingham, AL.

Kurt Gardner and Cody Bass1-800 WATER DAMAGE of South Brimingham ALKurt and Cody began searching for the right growth opportunity for their existing carpet cleaning and restoration business several months ago. They were drawn to 1-800 WATER DAMAGE because of the opportunities for success, high level of support, and backing of BELFOR. The equipment, training facilities, and website stood out as additional top-notch benefits leading to their decision of converting their existing business to 1-800 WATER DAMAGE.

With their new conversion to 1-800 WATER DAMAGE, Kurt and Cody plan to serve Birmingham, AL and the surrounding areas within their territory. Both owners share the common goal of building a profitable turnkey business with endless growth opportunities.

In his spare time, Kurt enjoys spending as much time possible with family. He has been married to his wife, Laura, for nine wonderful years. They have an amazing 3½-year-old son named Garen, a beautiful 7-month-old daughter named Claire, and a 9-year-old dog named Moxie. Kurt loves to learn, which he accomplishes by listening to audiobooks while working and driving.

Outside of work, Cody enjoys hunting and fishing. In October--shortly after assisting with a CAT--he married his now-wife, Makenzie. Although the timing was tight, Cody made it to the wedding and was able to enjoy time with family and friends.

Kurt can be reached at kurt.gardner@1800waterdamage.com. Cody can be reached at cody.bass@1800waterdamage.com. Both can be reached by phone at 205-545-7788.
