What Can You Expect as Your Property is Repaired?


We want to help you understand the process of home restoration and what you can expect from our company as the repairs to your property begin.

The property owner signs a work authorization which allows us to perform the necessary repairs. Our restoration company will work with your insurance adjuster to reach an agreed upon scope of repairs. The Insurance adjuster will provide us with an approval so we can proceed with the Estimation process. Detailed measurements, and photographs are taken to provide the highest degree of accuracy. Once the information is gathered at your property the estimator will enter the information using a standardized program used by the insurance industry to complete your estimate. The insurance company will receive a copy of the estimate once its completed. 

Project Managers will coordinate the repairs once the estimate is approved. They will be working with you throughout the repair process which will include the following;

Selection Meetings, Scheduling of Repairs, On site coordinator for any construction management and Building inspections. Throughout the process your PM will be reviewing all repairs and scheduling any necessary finishing details before the Final Walk-Through.
