Damage from flooding, improperly hung fixtures, fire, lightening strikes or other catastrophes can be demoralizing to homeowners. However, instead of viewing the occurrence as destruction, perhaps it can be viewed as an opportunity to create something bigger and better. Many restoration companies work with insurance agencies to bring your home back to its original allure. While catastrophe is often the catalyst for restoration, slower moving agents like mold and rot could also be contributing factors.
According to restoration company Integrity Restoration, when you experience a property-related casualty, first start with your insurance company to determine which home restoration repairs will be covered and which expenses will result in out-of -pocket costs. Determine if your policy allows you the freedom to hire an independent contractor or if your options are limited to specific companies with whom your insurer has a pre-existing relationship. An adjuster will likely assess the damage which will help you to communicate your needs to a contractor.
Next, research reviews and testimonials for contractors to determine which restoration company is right for you. Contractors should be licensed and insured to hedge against faulty repairs and issues with unfinished work. Discuss restoration options with your contractor as well as an estimated time frame for completion. What starts as disaster could result in expediting previously needed repairs and upgrades and end with distinct improvements to your home.
