When fire, flood, or a storm devastates your home, the scale of the project to repair everything to its pre-disaster condition can be extensive. You will likely require the help of both professional restoration and reconstruction contractors to assess issues from the disaster event and to bring your home back to its beautiful appearance. But should the same company that is ready to restore your home, be the same company that does the reconstruction work? In one word: absolutely! Rather than hiring multiple companies to take on your home repairs, streamline the process and cut down on costs by employing one professional company to remediate damage and reconstruct your home. Over the years, we’ve seen (and helped clean up) the disastrous consequences of hiring the wrong contractors. We want to help avoid common (and easily avoidable) mistakes people make and provide complete recovery from start to finish.
Not all Restoration Contractors are Alike
Not everyone realizes that there are different “types” of restoration contractors. Many contractors are mitigation-only, specializing in restoring a property and mitigating loss. They do not have the inhouse capability to complete repairs to put everything back the way it was before the damage occurred. For example, when water damage is involved, their work often entails removal of flooring and wet building materials and setting up drying equipment. They are often called in for a restoration project where the property owner files a claim with their insurance company. Some mitigation-only contractors advertise themselves as full-service but subcontract the reconstruction work to separate companies that often have ongoing, prioritized jobs. When project responsibility is passed off to a subcontractor, there is an increased risk for more unnecessary issues to occur. Making the wrong choice can lead to further damage and undesirable results.
Benefits of Hiring One Company
Breathe easy knowing you can save yourself a lot of time and hassle by contacting one company to do it all. Who is the property damage superhero, you ask? A full-service restoration and reconstruction company. Clearly, there are many benefits to using a single source that understands and performs every aspect of a project:
Saving Money – Our experience and understanding of seamlessly combining the restoration and reconstruction work required, can mean significant claims savings.
Quality Work – Restoration/Reconstruction professionals are skilled certified technicians and craftsman that can not only rebuild or remodel from the ground up, but more importantly can mitigate any seen or unseen damage unveiled during the restoration or remodel project.
Better Communication – Hiring two contractors: one to do the restoration and another to do the reconstruction forms a communication gap. While it may not be a big deal, it could make the project less efficient and more costly. Having one source perform the entire project from start to finish brings peace of mind that details won’t be overlooked. You want to be certain the project goes as efficiently as possible and keeps costs down. Having one company manage all the details gives you the reassurance that things will go as smoothly as possible.
Dealing with Challenges – There are times when challenges occur. When they do, choosing to conduct business with one company can quicken the solution. The experience, knowledge, and expertise that a single company brings are instrumental in fixing complications and alleviating any possibility of them occurring in the first place.
Efficiency on Your Project – When a disaster happens, time is of the essence. Many have said it is nearly impossible to put a price on getting your household or business back to normal. A restoration and reconstruction company is skilled to access the damage, mitigate the damage, estimate the job, work cohesively with the insurance company and restore/rebuild your property and all in a timely manner.
