It might seem obvious that when you need to recover from a disaster of some sort, you’d want a contractor who would completely restore your home to pre-loss condition. Some people, however, assume that they should call one company for restoration services for water extrication and clean-up and then a general contractor afterward for rebuilding. The reality is that there are options out there where you can work with one company for every part of the restoration. There are several advantages involved with choosing restoration services from a general contractor.
First of all, you are only dealing with one company, which makes the logistics of the various phases easier and less complicated. There is less chance of a miscommunication with the insurance company, as well. Another reason is that a general contractor has a more advanced background in structural considerations and knows more about how different building materials can be affected by smoke, fire, mold, and water. For one thing, they know that for your home to be completely dry, it must be thoroughly tested and documentation provided for your peace of mind.
A full-service, certified restoration services provider is also more likely to salvage more as they are also trained in contents restoration. A nontrained company is more likely to throw everything out, and that would be a shame for things that are not replaceable.
