Even a small fire can be devastating and highly disruptive to a family or business. Damages can be from both the fire itself as well as the extinguishing process. This can lead to the need of other types of repairs and restorations such as water damage, soot, odor damage, and moisture (mold) prevention. Once the fire is extinguished, there are so many things to consider to get your structure back in working order, and get your life back to normal. One of the top concerns is almost always; how much does it cost to recover and restore my building from a fire?
Fire Causes Can Affect the Cost of Restoration
Something else to consider when you are navigating the restoration and reconstruction of your home or business is the cause or origin of the fire. Toxic items that have been burned or melted can create strong odor or residues that can be hard to clean and will sometimes need to be removed or replaced. Fires in kitchens or workshops for example can be caused by grease and leave a residue of oily soot that is harder to remove, and therefore would be more costly to repair.
Size and Area of the Fire Can Affect the Cost of Restoration
Costs can vary immensely depending on how much damage was caused by the fire and the water used to extinguish the flames. The size of the fire and the area where the damage was done will be a determinant of how much it will cost to restore and rebuild your structure. If the fire is smaller, most likely the cost will be less.
Another area that affects cost is the type of room or area that was affected. For example, rebuilding and restoring a small closet or bedroom would be an extremely different cost than an attic. An attic space may contain vents for heating and cooling, electrical, and even sometimes plumbing, all of which affect the entire structure. When replacing items such as a roof or kitchen cabinets, the cost of restoration will increase. Homeowners insurance will be a guide to how much restoration will cost, and what your out-of-pocket expenses may be for each individual case.
