4 Things To Look For in a Fire Damage Estimate

If your company in Leonard, OK, has experienced a fire, you will likely have several questions about the fire recovery process. Once you find a trusted fire remediation franchise to do the work, you should receive an estimate that details many aspects of the restoration process. At this point, you are looking for some clarity, so it is helpful to have all or most of your questions answered. A quality report should provide you with several key pieces of information.

1. The Level of Fire Damage. Even a small fire can look overwhelming, so it is nice to get some confirmation on how things stand. Trained workers will do a quick inspection and assessment of the property. Once this is completed the project manager can give you a pretty good idea of how much damage has occurred.

2. The Cost. No doubt you are eager to know the expenses to your company. A solid estimate should give you some realistic numbers. This is easier if you are dealing with a company that will do most or all of the restoration process. This way you won't have to chase down different contractors to figure out the total cost of the job.

3. The Time Frame. After the technicians look things over, you should get a good idea of how long the restoration will take. In small fires, this could be in a matter of days, while a more catastrophic commercial fire could take several weeks.

4. The Insurance. Working with one company will also make the insurance process run more smoothly. It makes the claims process much faster and more efficient. In most cases, dealing with just one contractor will result in lower overall costs.
A good damage estimate should provide your company with a lot of clarity at a confusing time. It is the beginning of the recovery process after a catastrophe.
