When water damage or a fire disaster happens at home, the scale of the project to repair everything to its pre-disaster state can be extensive. You will likely require the help of both professional restoration and remodeling contractors to assess issues from the disaster event and to bring your home back to its beautiful appearance. Rather than hiring multiple companies or people to take on your home repairs, streamline the process and cut down on costs by employing the same professional restoration and remodeling contractor. Smith & Son’s Contracting has plenty of experience servicing home restoration and reconstruction. Here’s what you should know about restoration and remodeling contractors, and why you are better off hiring the same contractor to remediate damage and reconstruct your home.
A restoration contractor has greater knowledge working with insurance companies, along with assessing and fixing home areas damaged by fire, water, or storms. Restoration experts can better estimate repair pricing and handle negotiations with insurance companies to give homeowners more accurate and usually fixed price estimation. Further, restoration contractors understand the full-scope of addressing damages, so there aren’t any problems in the future with the structure of the home. For example, water restoration contractors know to look for and how to dry inconspicuous places to avoid weakened wood beams or mold issues.
General or Remodeling Contractor
Remodeling contractors mostly work on interior and exterior projects concerning the cosmetic appearance of the home. While one tends to pay more for unforeseen extras or out-of-pocket for home remodeling materials, these expenses can be worth it to homeowners who want more control over the final appearance of their home remodeling project. Restoration budgets are generally limited to the amount covered by the homeowner’s insurance, although they can pay out-of-pocket to make up the difference for certain things.
Understand the Extent of Your Project
It’s best to work with the same restoration and remodeling contractor to fix damages and refurbish the appearance of your home. Having multiple parties involved can create miscommunications and confusion in your home repair project, not to mention potentially incurring extra costs. Working with the same experienced contractor lets them see the project through from initial remediation to the finishing touches. Plus, they can better communicate the whole process to the homeowner throughout the project. The in-between details from both the structural and cosmetic repairs to the home won’t get overlooked by working with one reliable contracting company and their trusted team.
