How to Choose Fire Damage Contractors

Hi, my name is Sue. Last year we had a significant fire in our house. Luckily, nobody was hurt, but the damage that the fire and smoke did to our home was heartbreaking. We didn’t know where to start to get things cleaned up and restored. There was so much work to do and we didn’t feel confident about putting some things right ourselves. In the end, we hired specialist damage contractors to clean things up and get things back to how they were before the fire. We spent a fair amount of time choosing contractors — it’s important to find a company that has the skills you need at a fair price. I started this site to pass on some of the things we learned when we were choosing contractors. I hope it helps if you’ve been unlucky enough to have to deal with home damage.
