How To Give Clients an Accurate Estimate for Fire Damage Restoration

There are a lot of different factors that need to be considered when working with fire damage. Likewise, when planning to remediate a building in North Weymouth, MA, many factors will impact the projected cost. Not only will contractors need to understand the work they will be performing, but they will also need to predict the materials they will need. All of this can be a lot to keep track of. Therefore, restoration companies must follow this system to give clients the most accurate estimate possible.

Choose a Format
The first step to creating an accurate estimate is to choose a solid format so that you don't exclude anything from your predictions. Here are several formats you can choose from:

  • Story of loss
  • Top to bottom
  • Workflow

Include Prep-Work Items
The first key thing you should include in your estimate for each room is the materials you will need to conduct your preparatory work. This will include any tools you need, personal protective equipment, and environmental control equipment. Also, consider the costs of packing out any contents during the preparatory phase.

Add Removal Costs
On the initial visit to a site, a fire restoration professional will need to confirm the damage's scope and what needs to be removed. This applies to both contents and the actual structure. Look for any materials that flames, soot, smoke, or water has damaged beyond repair and calculate the costs of removing them.
Restoration estimators are crucial to the restoration process. Therefore, they must be thorough when investigating the site of a commercial fire. This will give the restoration company a reasonable budget to follow on the project. The key is to choose a proper format and stick with it. Remember to include all of the materials you will need for the project. Then, do a comprehensive exam of the building. This will allow you to create a budget that your company can work within.
