Fire Damage Resotration
Return to Normal After a Fire
Watching your business or home being destroyed by fire is devastating. Even when firefighters manage to contain the fire, the damage is already done. It’s estimated that $25.5 billion each year is lost through fire damage, and this is after the fire is extinguished.
Damage restoration companies are tasked with restoring businesses and homes affected to their pre-loss condition. At Charlotte’s Best Roofing and Restoration, our main objective is to provide you with swift damage restoration by leveraging our extensive expertise to minimize downtime.
You can trust our team to deliver efficient and effective solutions tailored to meet your unique needs. Our insurance adjusters can also guide you through presenting a claim to your insurance company and negotiating for the best payout to cover the cost of restoration.

Fire damage restoration process
The emotional impact of a fire can be profound for you and your family. As such, we’ve trained our team to be empathic to your situation and offer the support needed during the recovery process. Our process is straightforward and will get you the results you need. It includes:
Amidst the chaos and urgency of a fire, your priority should be to get yourself and your family to safety. When you’re safe, call in firefighters to quench the flames. And once the fire’s out, contact us to help you with the fire damage restoration process.
The first thing we’ll do when you contact us is visit your property for a damage assessment. However, our restoration pros can only enter your property once it’s been declared safe.
During the assessment, we’ll examine the structure to establish the extent of the fire, soot, and smoke damage. This step helps us determine what’s needed for restoration, how long it’ll take, and prepare an accurate cost estimate. We’ll also determine what items should be thrown out and what can be salvaged.
While our restoration services are often covered under home insurance policies, it is prudent for you to consult your insurance provider to understand the coverage details outlined in your policy.
If the soot damage is covered by insurance, we can help you with filing the claim. Our insurance adjusters will submit the relevant paperwork on your behalf and negotiate for the best payout based on our assessment.
Fires often leave homes and commercial buildings exposed. For instance, broken windows increase the risk of trespassers. To safeguard your property, our team will board up compromised walls and windows to provide an extra layer of protection against potential damage.
And if a section of the roof is missing, we’ll provide roof tarping to prevent rain, snow, and debris from entering the house, mitigating any additional risks.
The water used to put out a fire can cause more damage if you don’t act fast. Fires can also expose and damage pipes throughout a home or building, resulting in leaks that seep into the structure. If water damage is not dealt with quickly, you might experience mold growth or rust.
Once your property is protected, our water damage restoration team will take steps to remove the water and dry the property. We’ll remove personal property from the building and remove damaged flooring, drywall, and other materials.
Our water extraction team does the job using commercial-grade equipment to dry the inside of your home. These tools ensure the drying is done perfectly and in the least time possible.
Cleanup is by far the most intensive part of a restoration project. It requires a lot of manpower to clean smoke and soot residue from the exterior and interior surfaces and fabrics. Often, our team has to clean every inch of the affected surfaces.
Once the cleanup is done, we’ll use deodorizing agents to remove smoke odors. Our team will also apply antimicrobial chemicals to sanitize the property and prevent future mold growth.
The final stage of the fire restoration process involves the actual restoration or remodeling of a property to its pre-fire condition. In the initial assessment, the team of fire damage restoration experts will have pinpointed the part of the building that cannot be salvaged and needs removal and replacement.
At this stage, our team may replace or rebuild the roof, repair electrical wiring, replace and repaint drywalls, and replace fixtures, interior counters, and flooring materials.
In cases where the property damage is more extensive, the restoration process may involve the complete reconstruction of one or more rooms in your home.
The final stage of the fire restoration process involves the actual restoration or remodeling of your home to its pre-fire condition. This comprehensive step may entail the removal and replacement of damaged drywall, as well as the installation of new carpeting or floorboards.
For instance, if your drywall has been compromised due to water saturation during firefighting efforts, it will no longer provide structural integrity and will need to be replaced.
Our team will carefully assess your property to identify areas that require rebuilding, and we’ll handle all aspects of the installation and painting process for you.
In cases where the fire damage is more extensive, the restoration process may involve the complete reconstruction of one or more rooms in your home.
