Who Are We?

We Are Altra Dry

Altra Dry was started in 1988 by the late Larry Conley. With passion for family and finding the best way to help customers, his business was born.

Sara Conley, Larry’s Daughter, took over the company in 2013 with the same passion for family, community, and education.

Through growth and development, 36 years later it is now a second-generation, full-service restoration and waterproofing company serving customers the right way.

When any disaster strikes in your home or business, know that Altra Dry has the experience and compassion to ensure that your property is restored safely and completely.

This is our passion and our calling. Let us take care of you.

Sara Conley

Owner

In 1988 my dad, Larry Conley, started his adventure of entrepreneurship. In 2013 Dad got diagnosed with cancer for the second time and could no longer work. With the same passion for family, community, and education I took over the company.

Today, I am proud to continue my father’s legacy as a second-generation, full-service restoration and waterproofing company.

This is my passion and my calling. I love taking care of people.
