Repairing Structural Damages to Westerly Homes After a Fire

Fire losses can be among the most destructive disasters that affect Westerly homes, especially those that go beyond smoke and soot effects and present physical destruction to structural elements. Restoring your home becomes as essential and prioritized as repairing the damages to the structure. With a team of well-trained restoration professionals accredited in Fire & Smoke Restoration (FSRT) and a division of licensed residential contractors in-house, our SERVPRO team can help in both of these needed areas.

In many ways, the recovery of fire damage and build back of Westerly properties must go hand in hand. Our restoration team can respond quickly to this emergency, working first to uncover any physical red flags on the property during the initial phase of removing fire debris and inspecting the final results of extinguishments. During this scoping of the job, we can identify three instances where controlled demolition and/or reconstruction might be necessary.

Fire Destruction

Likely the bulk of the work that needs to happen with our in-house contractors following a fire loss happens because of the destruction the disaster caused directly. Structural collapse and failures pose substantial threats to homeowners and must get repaired and rebuilt throughout the restoration process.

Controlled Demolition

During the inspection and scoping of the work to get done, our SERVPRO project manager can make a note of surfaces and materials that appear too damaged to restore with our recovery efforts. In some situations, removing these areas of your home’s construction can be safer and more efficient to restore than working to clean and recover them.

Man-Made Breaches

During firefighting efforts, it is not uncommon for first responders to need more direct access to areas where the blaze is burning the worst. Pathways to reach these damage points often come from holes cut into the roof or siding of the house. These structural breaches must get repaired along with other areas reconstruction is necessary.

 Restoring and repairing your home after a fire loss is two areas where you can count on our SERVPRO of Washington County team. We have experienced restoration technicians and a talented division of in-house residential contractors to make fire losses “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (401) 315-2337.
