LeMaster Restoration Inc. calls itself the "Midwest's premiere full-service disaster restoration and reconstruction provider," specializing in homes devastated by leaks, floods and fires.

In January, the state Department of Labor and Industry took the rare step of summarily suspending LeMaster Restoration's contractor license, effectively putting it out of the construction business.
