Should the Contractor that Handled your Restoration also Handle your Reconstruction?

The answer to that question is yes. A flood, fire, mold, tropical storm or hurricane can wreak havoc on your home or business.  Cleaning up the damage may be the tip of the iceberg.  Drywall, cabinets, flooring, ceilings and walls can be damaged requiring replacement. The stress and anxiety that comes with experiencing a disaster can be devastating. How do you mitigate the damage and rebuild as soon as possible to get back to a normal home or work environment?  Use the same contractor for both your restoration or clean up and renovation.  Before you rush to call a general contractor, it is important to understand the difference between a general contractor and a restoration contractor.  The 3 Reasons to hire the same contractor for restoration and reconstruction include the following factors

  • Cost
  • Quality
  • Time

Cost:  Restoration Companies are well versed when it comes to dealing with insurance companies. A restoration company will guide you in filing your insurance claim and negotiation with your insurance company. Restoration companies know which insurance companies will cover and will not cover certain types of damage. Restoration companies know the ins and outs of the insurance industry and use the same software for estimating as the insurance companies do. This simply put can help save tremendous cost to the homeowner and business owner.

Quality: Restoration Contractors are re builders. They are skilled craftsman that not only can rebuild or remodel from the ground up, but more importantly can mitigate any seen or unseen damage unveiled during the restoration or remodel project. Restoration craftsman hold certificates from the IICRC (institute of Inspection, Cleaning & Restoration Certification). Simply said; they will meet superior quality control standards.

Time: When a disaster happens, time is of the essence. Restoration contractors are available 24/7 to help minimize the loss and damage and in many cases within minutes of their arrival. Many have said it is nearly impossible to put a price on getting your household or business back to normal. Hiring a restoration 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.
