2001 Best Residential Insurance Restoration

This project was the result of a fire in a third floor screen porch caused by a propane gas grill. (Someone forgot to tell them that they didnít need to use that charcoal lighter). There was extensive damage to the roof, third floor, exterior decks, and the second floor. To access the contaminated ductwork, the ceilings on the first floor had to be removed. 95% of the roof trusses had to be replaced, the third floor had to be gutted and the rear wall replaced.

Challenges included working at a height of 40 feet with strong ocean winds. Until the roof trusses could be fabricated, the roof tarps had to be secured and checked every day. The house backed onto a tidal marsh into which no debris could blow.

When it was time to remove the roof, it was cut into sections and lifted off with a crane. In two days, the old roof was removed and the new one framed in.

The results of the project were excellent. The work proceeded at a good pace, and because of the extent of the reconstruction, the customer was able to change several parts of the existing house that didnít work for them before.
