- How do I keep track of non-restorable items after a fire at my business?
- Do I need general contractors?
- What is a code or by-law upgrade?
We recommend you make a list of your facility’s items that are deemed non-restorable. You can obtain a form for this purpose from your insurance company. Make a copy for your insurance company and keep one for yourself.
There are some aspects of the fire and smoke restoration process that may require the services of general contractors such as drywall/painting; electrical; plumbing; roofing; framing/finish carpentry; flooring/carpet; installation of doors, windows, cabinets, post-construction cleanup, etc. ServiceMaster Restore offers full restoration services.
A code or by-law upgrade is an upgrade that is made when your commercial property’s pre-loss condition no longer meets legal building codes. Your insurance company may recognize code upgrades in the estimation process. Any questions regarding code upgrades should be directed to your Insurance Adjuster.
