Reconstruction Process After a Fire

A kitchen fire in your home can be a devastating catastrophe that seems like it will never end.  Once the fire is extinguished, the cleanup process must begin immediately to minimize the risks of health and safety issues.  Smoke residue and soot need to be removed to prevent permanent staining on walls and fixtures.  Air ducts need to be cleared and protected so as to avoid respiratory illnesses.  Finally water logged items and walls need to be sanitized and dried to prevent mold growth.  Throughout this process it can be hard to keep your spirits up.

There is a bright side, however.  As a family owned company, of course our foremost thought is the safety of your family.  With everyone safe from the fire, you can look at the devastation and sink into a world of ‘why me?’…or you can consider the joy you’ll have from a newly reconstructed kitchen.   At LaPointe Construction Board Up Service, we have over 50 years of experience providing homeowners with restoration and reconstruction services as well as peace of mind. 

So what is the restoration process when you have a fire?

  • First, your restoration crew will assess the damage. The team will work with you and your insurance company to develop a course of action.  A detailed plan will allow you to rest easy, knowing your property is in good hands.
  • Next, the property will be shored and boarded up to prevent injuries and additional structural damage. Once structurally sound, the cleanup process will begin.  Smoke, soot, water, and odors will be dealt with according to industry standards and requirements leaving your home free and clear of damaging remnants that could affect your health and safety.
  • Finally, construction will begin. Our general contracting team will work to turn your home back into its original condition or better.

Our certified professionals are proud to offer an all-in-one solution.  We work with you from start to finish so you get the benefit of only having to deal with one company rather than trying to organize multiple teams and risk miscommunication.  Your property will be properly restored before reconstruction begins so that you and your family have a safe environment to design and live in.

We understand the devastation caused by fire and are trained and certified to handle any project.  We also understand the need to work quickly to minimize the risk of further damaging salvageable items.  Within no time, you will be enjoying a cup of coffee or cooking a family meal in your newly reconstructed kitchen.  It’s difficult to look at the mess that a fire creates and see the silver lining; have confidence that by selecting the right team, you’ll discover the first rays of hope towards getting your home back in order.
