2001 Best Residential Insurance Restoration

On a cold day in January, 2000, this family was enjoying the warmth of their fireplace when they noticed an unusual amount of smoke outside their house. Their two story wood famed house, built in 1926, had recently had a flue liner installed inside the aging masonry chimney. Fire found its way through a crack in the flu liner and chimney, and started the adjoining wall framing on fire. The fire spread to the floor joists and into the living room and basement areas of the house. There was smoke and heat damage to the rest of the house.

Some of the unusual constraints of this project included reconfiguring the existing corner masonry fireplace to a centered gas fireplace. Because the fire was caused by the fireplace, much research was involved in providing the downers with the safest possible replacement. The exterior of the house had an old type stucco, referred to as "pebble dash", which was difficult to match at the fire damaged areas. A stucco contractor, who had experience with this kind of stucco, was found, and created an excellent match to the existing stucco.

Not only was all fire, smoke, and water damage repaired, but the home was remodeled to better suit the family’s lifestyle.
