Reconstruction – How You Get Back to Normal after a Disaster

Whether you’ve suffered a flood, a fire, a hurricane, or a mold outbreak, the ordeal can last for awhile.  Depending on how bad the damage is, the emergency disaster services you get may only be the beginning. 

That’s why it is so important to find a disaster team that also specializes in reconstruction – or, restoring your home to its pre-damaged state.  By having professionals that handle both disaster and reconstruction services, it saves you the time and energy of finding another contractor later.  Once the water is cleaned up or the smoke smell is gone, your disaster team can simply switch gears and focus on the reconstruction process. 

The extent of your damage will determine how lengthy and involved the reconstruction needs to be.   But before any work starts, your reconstruction team will provide you and your insurance company (if they are covering the damages) with a reconstruction proposal that goes over all of the details – and all of the prices involved with getting you back on your feet.  Both you and your insurance company can request changes to the proposal.  That way, you get a reconstruction plan that suits your needs.

While each situation is different, reconstruction usually involves services like:

  • Repairing or replacing cabinets, counters, doors, and windows
  • Fixing electrical problems
  • Full plumbing services
  • Repairing or replacing drywall and insulation
  • Full painting services
  • Repairing or replacing carpet, tile, or hardwood flooring

If your insurance company is footing the bill for your disaster cleanup and the damage is too severe for you to live in your home, your insurance company will write you a check for emergency living expenses.  You can use the money for things like hotel bills, food purchases, and new clothes to wear if yours were damaged.

However, your emergency living expenses will only last you so long.  Each insurance policy has a different amount of emergency living expenses.  Once you use up all of the money, you do not get any more.  That’s why it is so important to find reconstruction experts who can work quickly – so that you can be back to normal, faster.

At Disaster Restoration Services, we do just that.  We can help you immediately after a disaster strikes, then take over the restoration responsibilities.  We are a certified general contractor in the state of Florida.  We can guide you through the entire process, so that you can get back to living your life.
