Remodeling After a Fire: What You Need to Know

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , , .

Rebuilding after a fire has damaged your home or business can feel like a daunting task.  The process of rebuilding can vary greatly, depending on the damage that is left behind.  From a kitchen or basement remodel to addressing significant structural damage to the building that may require a complete tear-down, an experienced restoration team offering construction services can take you through the process.

Start the Insurance Process Immediately

Most fires will be covered by the homeowner’s or building insurance.  However, the insurance company’s process of assessing the damage and the compensation can often be painstakingly slow.  For this reason, the insurance company should be one of the first calls that you make after a fire.  This will allow the restoration and rebuilding process to begin as soon as possible.  The insurance company will assess the home or business, determining the payout amount based on the extent of the damage.  This insurance claim will help you to determine the next step, remodeling or rebuilding entirely.

To Remodel or to Rebuild: Determining How to Approach the Damage

While you may be limited by the insurance company’s assessment of the damage, the next step is to determine whether you will remodel the damaged areas of the home or business or if the damage is extensive enough to rebuild entirely.  This assessment is often best left to a company with experience in restoration, evaluating the structural damage and how to best approach the process of making the owner whole again.

The devastation that a fire leaves behind can be particularly damaging for the family involved.  There can be a bright side to the process of remodeling after this disaster.  This is a great opportunity to make any changes to the damaged areas of your home, creating an area that is perfect for you and your family.  Instead of looking upon this rebuilding process as just correcting the fire damage, you can improve the home in areas that you may have considered before the fire but now have the opportunity to change.

It goes without saying that no one wants to experience a fire in their home or business.  A professional restoration team like Soil-Away can help to assess the damage and begin the process of remodeling the home through the company’s professional construction services.  Ultimately, with the help of the team at Soil-Away you can have a beautiful home or business that shows no damage from a fire.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
