Window frame and wall damaged with soot and smoke. Fire damage in Layton, UT.

No business owner wants to imagine a devastating fire in one of their commercial properties. If your building in Layton, UT, catches fire, you may be overwhelmed by the amount of work needed to get it back to normal. Hiring a fire restoration company that specializes not only in providing a clear estimate but also the bulk of the restoration services can simplify the cleanup process.

Fire Damage Estimate


Inspection

When technicians first arrive at your building, in addition to surveying the central location that contains the most fire damage, they inspect every area that could have been affected by the fire:

  • Windows
  • Roof
  • Crawlspace
  • Basement


When they find damage that needs repair, they make note of it so that they can include it in the overall cost. If your restoration company is equipped to handle all the repairs itself, the technicians can get started on the cleanup pretty quickly. Otherwise, they may have a system in place to coordinate with outside contractors.


Distribution


Many types of repairs can be needed after a commercial fire. You want to be assured that the people working on your building are experts in the specific tasks they are completing. The restoration company documents the work that needs to be done and distributes the assignments among its various teams. By choosing a company that handles all or most of the repairs in house, you can expect a lower estimate than if you have to bring in qualified specialists from outside the company.


Insurance


Another benefit about streamlining your repair process with just one company is that the technicians can communicate directly with your insurance company on your behalf. Rather than having to compile several estimates from different places, you have one report that contains everything. An online reporting system for each claim where both you and your adjuster can access it whenever it's needed makes the process even easier.


You hope that you never have to deal with fire damage in your commercial property. Having one company to handle the whole restoration process can make coming up with a comprehensive, affordable estimate easier.
