Fire

June 22, 2016

Dealing with a fire is always an unexpected event and can be a difficult and stressful time. Every fire is different and each property unique. The effects of a fire to a property can be both seen and unseen. No matter the size or source of the fire; damage can come from or be caused by soot, smoke, odors and the fire itself. In most cases there will also be additional damage caused by the chemicals, water and process used to contain and extinguish the fire. A project involving fire damage usually involves several different parties and our clients need someone who can and will handle all of the coordination, scheduling and oversight of their project.

 

At Sea Coast Restoration we handle all aspects of your fire damage project and will be with you from the initial call through the final walk through. We will assist and advise you on dealing with your insurance company, insurance adjusters, fire officials, banks, mortgage companies, HOA’s, tenants, employees and any other parties involved.

 

We have over 20 years of experience in residential and commercial construction and project management. We are also IICRC certified in Fire, Smoke, Soot, Water, Mold and Odor Removal and offer a 5 Year Warranty on all of our work.

 

We are available 24/7 so please contact us if you need emergency or immediate service, have any questions or would like to schedule a time for an onsite evaluation and estimate.

Our Process:

 

Inspection and Damage Assessment:

 

First we do an initial inspection and assessment of your property to determine the extent of the damage. During this phase we work with our clients, fire officials and any insurance companies involved to determine the initial scope of the project and best course of action. Before any work begins we SECURE the property, make sure it has been cleared by Fire Officials and/or Cause and Origin has been determined and confirm that all necessary approvals have been obtained.

 

Securing the property and all affected areas:

 

This can include tarping a roof, boarding up windows, doors and other openings. The goal in this phase is to secure the property and prevent any further damage until the MITIGATION work can begin.

 

Fire and Water Mitigation:

 

The goal of the mitigation process is to prevent further damage to the property. During this phase we will work with you (and your insurance company if a claim is involved) to determine what can be restored and what should be replaced. Mitigation, depending on the size, scope and source of the damage, can include removal of standing water, structural drying, soot/smoke/odor removal, mold removal and demolition/removal of any damaged flooring, drywall, fixtures, etc.

 

During the mitigation phase we will also address your contents (personal belongings, furniture, electronics, appliances, etc.). We will work with you (and your insurance company if a claim has been filed) to determine which items can be saved or restored and which items have to be discarded. Everything will be documented and inventoried. Damaged contents will be discarded with your consent. Content items that are able to be restored or saved will be repaired, cleaned, sanitized and then returned to you at the end of the project.

 

The final step of the mitigation process is the cleaning and sanitation of all affected areas in preparation for reconstruction. When the mitigation process is complete the property will be ready for reconstruction also known as the REPAIR and RESTORATION phase.

 

Repairs and Restoration:

 

This is the final step in the process. The goal of the repair and restoration phase is to get your property back to the same or better condition than it was before the fire. Typically repairs will include (but are not limited to) replacing drywall, painting and installing new flooring, fixtures, appliances, etc.

 

In addition to repairing the areas damaged by the fire event, many clients choose to take this time to do upgrades or have additional work done to their property. As a full service, licensed and insured general contractor we can easily accommodate these requests and can handle any size restoration, renovation, remodeling or upfit project.

 

We will work with you (and your insurance company if a claim is involved) to determine the final cost, scope and schedule of the project.

 

Our Goal is 100% Satisfaction

 

Once the repairs are complete; we will do a final walk through, address any punch list items and finish the project with a final cleaning & sanitizing.

 

We are available 24/7 so please contact us if you need emergency or immediate service, have any questions or would like to schedule a time for an onsite evaluation and estimate.
