Remodeling vs. Restoring after Fire Damage within Your Los Alamitos Residence
Certified SERVPRO Technicians Quickly Remediate Damage After a Fire Incident in Your Home
After a house fire in Los Alamitos, some homeowners decide that restoring their home to the same floor plan does not suit the needs of their families. What may have worked out wonderfully at purchasing time can become much smaller for a growing family. Empty-nesters might find that their homes now offer too much living space and desire to change it so it can serve other purposes.
After fire damage affects their Los Alamitos home, residents have different options regarding restoration. If a home sustains enough damage that gutting the interior walls and other structures took place, a new floor plan is an option. Some homeowners choose this option to not only make their home suit their current needs better, but to also save on rebuilding costs.
The professionals at SERVPRO are here to serve our customers' needs after a disaster, including going the extra mile in preparing fire damaged homes for such extensive restoration work. Ensuring that a clean slate, free of all debris and non-essential or burned structures no longer can impede rebuilding efforts, we help make sure that rebuilding efforts can proceed on schedule. Part of proceeding along this journey includes insurance agents and gaining their approval. As a neutral third party, we often help homeowners by providing written assessments of the damage.
When a home's floor plan remains mostly unfazed by a fire, significantly changing it should come only after careful consideration of the factors involved. Costs can rise significantly in such cases, and homeowners should factor in possible complications involving electrical wiring, plumbing, and other issues. Removing a wall may seem simple enough to carry out until builders determine that the wall in question provided structural support to the second level of the house.
Other damages, such as those to personal belongings, furniture, household furnishings such as carpets, draperies, blinds, and big-ticket items, are listed on our inventory sheets. We place each one in the appropriate category as salvageable, destroyed, or uncertain, helping you complete claims involving replacement costs.
