Cutting and marking balsa wood templates for making engineered stone countertops Home renovation gone awry? SERVPRO of Englewood/Placida is here for all your construction and remodeling needs!

No matter where you live or how much you prepare, sometimes there is simply nothing you can do to prevent a disaster from striking. Natural disasters can come without warning and leave behind a trail of damage so quickly that we are all left with our heads spinning. 

Preparing your home ahead of storms, floods or fires can go a long way in either preventing losses or keeping them at a minimum, but sometimes the damage to your home will be extensive enough to require construction or remodeling. 

SERVPRO® is your complete restoration company because we can handle repairs both big and small, including construction and the remodeling of your home when necessary. 

Right After the Storm

Once a storm has blown through, you may be anxious to get the repairs to your home started right away. If you were evacuated ahead of the disaster, you may not be able to get home right away, and even when you do so it may not be safe to enter your home. 

Caution should be exercised throughout your entire restoration process. 

Whether you rode the storm out at home or somewhere else, make your first step a call to our professionals. Our phone lines are open 24/7, and we will work directly with your insurance company in order to start the claim process and begin creating a plan for your home. As soon as we can safely do so, we will send a crew to your property and start assessing your needs. 

If you are able to access your property, take as many photos as possible in order to document what has happened. These photos can also help you make better decisions when you do get to the construction and remodeling phase of your restoration. 

Throughout the Process

Once we have created your restoration plan, we will make sure to walk with you through every step of the process. Initially, our goals will be to prevent any further damage. This can include tarping off your roof if necessary as well as sealing around the section that needs to be rebuilt in order to close in your home from the elements as much as possible. 

During the construction process, we will work with you to ensure your home is being rebuilt exactly as you want it to be. Our goal is to make your home yours again. Following your insurance claim and your guidance, our crews will work with every necessary contractor to get everything put back together fast. 

Throughout the process, the best thing you can do is to stay as calm as possible. Seeing your home damaged takes an emotional toll. While we tackle rebuilding your home, you can focus on addressing the emotional damage that has been done so that at the end of the process your life is exactly as it should be.
