Fire Restoration and Custom Re-design

The clients home was damaged by fire caused by a lightning strike to the homes roof structure, and the fire department put it out….. by dumping large amounts of water through the entire three floors of the home.

After being hired, we immediately got started with our emergency specialists to board up, tarp off, and handle garment and electronic services. These clients were also huge Cardinals fans, and we were able to help them to try and recover all of the memorabilia he had in his home.

Removed & Replaced Entire Roof

As you can see from the photos below, the damage to the home was quite extensive. We had to completely gut 4600 square feet of water soaked, fire and smoke damaged structure. While the initial emergency work, contents management, demolition, dryout, and mold work where being completed we got our plan together on the roof structure which was completely destroyed. As soon as the time came we were ready, and we completely removed the roof structure and installed the new structure in one day. However, it’d be unfair if we said that we accomplished that without the help of the best residential roofing company in Fort Collins. With the new roof structure and roofing completed, we were ready to begin the interior reconstruction. The clients chose to use this unfortunate circumstance as an opportunity to update and upgrade areas of their home they had always dreamed of improving. This is one of the things that really sets us apart in our industry.

We Helped Utilize the Claim Process Efficiently and Maximized the Value

Our estimating staff are experts at using the same software as the insurance companies, allowing us to streamline the estimating and communications with the insurance companies. For restoration projects such as this, where the clients are interested in re-designs and custom updates and upgrades, we also use the efficient methods of custom development and estimating that we have formulated to cross reference the insurance budget with the custom design and build process. This provides the client with a real understanding of their budget and options. From this work comes the ability for the client to utilize the claim process properly and efficiently, and maximize the value of the project with a high end quality contractor.

The Home Was Restored and Upgraded

As you will see the finished project photos below, the home’s look after completion speaks to the quality of the reconstruction. Some of the highlights of this project include:

  • A re-design of the front facade of the home, adding a gable for visual enhancement
  • Opening the main floor floor plan to a modern open kitchen and entertainment spaces
  • A new kitchen with custom cabinetry and beautiful granite countertops. A huge custom island.
  • From the previous master bathroom to the new. A plastic shower enclosure, to custom neo angle tub and shower with subway tile walls and frameless glass doors.
  • A completely updated basement going from a drop ceiling to a finished drywall ceiling, with a fireplace with custom carpentry, a beautiful entertainment area, and a high-end full bathroom with a walk-in shower.

This job really encompasses all of the areas in which we prove everyday to the people that recommend us why our services are so valuable to our clients. Our ability to offer a unique blend of experience and skills in all the areas of restoration and custom building make us a huge asset to a property owner dealing with an insurance claim.
