Why Hiring Professional Reconstruction Services Mitigates Losses and Saves You Money
If a disaster has damaged your commercial building, knowing what to outright replace or fix can seem daunting. The good news is, you don’t have to take a match to it. When disaster strikes, it pays to hire a reconstruction professional.
Professional reconstruction and damage restoration businesses like SERVPRO North Irving know how to assess your property correctly and mitigate any further losses. Here’s why hiring professional reconstruction services can save you money in the long run.
Be Forewarned and Forearmed
If a storm, wildfire, or flood hits your area, scammers are like sharks smelling blood in the water. Be aware of scammers posing as reconstruction professionals.
Contractors, general handymen, and remodelers who have no experience with disaster restoration and reconstruction will also add these services to increase their revenue.
But disaster restoration is a complex field that requires specialized knowledge on the most critical aspect of the whole endeavor — restoration.
Restoration means returning a building and its contents to its original condition for less than replacement cost. Unfortunately, a non-restoration business or contractor will continue with business-as-usual practices, tearing out otherwise salvageable materials because they simply don’t know how to recognize something that can be restored or how to restore it anyway.
You’ll end up losing money if you hire a non-restoration and reconstruction business. Check certifications, references, licenses, and past work to ensure you’re dealing with a company that does actual restoration.
Ways a Professional Reconstruction and Restoration Company Will Save You Money
#1. Restores Salvageable Materials Instead of Replacing Them
A professional reconstruction company will thoroughly inspect the property and identify the materials and objects that can be salvaged, restored, or reconstructed. In this way, they can cost-effectively complete the project. Restoration and reconstruction typically cost less than a full-on replacement.
#2. Correctly Identifies What Needs Replacing
General contractors and remodelers may think a material looks good on the surface and, therefore, doesn't need replacing. But a professional reconstruction and damage mitigation business will know what to look for to correctly identify objects and materials that may not be so sound under the hood.
#3. Understands the Needs of Different Surfaces and Materials
A qualified professional will understand the different surfaces in a damaged building and what they require for appropriate cleaning and restoration.
For example, cleaning and restoring a wood floor or reconstructing a damaged part of the floor is less expensive than a complete tear-out. Professional reconstruction services also understand how to clean and repair sections of drywall instead of going through a total replacement.
This specialized knowledge saves you time and money in total replacement costs. Plus, restoration is usually less messy than full tear-outs.
#4. Experience with Insurance Companies
Professional reconstruction and damage restoration companies know how to coordinate with your insurance company. Our SERVPRO reconstruction professionals have the experience necessary to service a claim from the initial call to mitigation completion.
#5. Uses the Right Equipment for the Job
A professional reconstruction and damage restoration company like SERVPRO North Irving has the equipment necessary to properly mitigate the damage.
High-tech meters and instruments can correctly identify the extent of hidden damage that may not be noticeable on the surface. Advanced equipment also allows us to work efficiently and quickly so you can get your business up and running again.
