For most fires, including some serious ones, restoration is a viable option. With the assistance of your insurer and a team of fire recovery experts, your situation can quickly return to normal.
With extreme fire damage, demolition is the only reasonable course of action. Starting over is never a pleasant prospect, but sometimes, it’s not financially feasible to do otherwise.
The worst case is when a structure that seems recoverable is not. The underlying damage may be more severe than first thought. The correct decision would have been to demolish it, saving valuable time and money.
If you ever become the victim of a home or business fire, you will play a key role in the decision-making process. How you respond may help determine if demolition is part of the solution.
