- What does pre-loss condition mean?
- What will it cost to run the drying equipment?
- Do I need general contractors to reconstruct my home after flooding or other water damage?
There may be some damage to your home and property that existed prior to your loss. Therefore, these damages will not be included in the scope of repairs. We are responsible for returning your home to how it was before the damage occurred, in other words, to its pre-loss condition, using materials of like-kind and quality. At your request, we will provide you with an estimate for any additional construction projects you may wish undertaken by our team. This additional work is termed, “non-insured work.”
Based on average monthly electricity billing rates, it may cost approximately one dollar per day per piece of drying equipment to operate. Actual rates will vary depending on the energy rates charged by your electricity provider.
There are some aspects of the 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 also offers full reconstruction services.
