2001 Best Residential Insurance Restoration

The fire in this 1920 Craftsman style home began in the bathroom, when an unattended candle accidentally caught a hand towel on fire. The bathroom was completely destroyed as was the bay window in the living room. The remainder of the first floor was damaged by smoke and intense heat. Most of the varnish on the original oak woodwork had bubbled-up and some of the oak was charred. The patterned oak floor was completely destroyed from water damage and the walls in the living room had been perforated by firemen’s axes.

The primary challenge was to restore the home while maintaining its original theme. New molding was fabricated by the contractor and any original oak was stripped, refinished, and reused. Many experiments were conducted with custom stain mixes and urethane tints to get the color of the new and refinished wood to match the original. A new patterned oak floor was laid with a walnut accent stripe to match the pre-existing floor.

The customers were delighted with the restoration. The original theme of the home has been maintained and there is virtually no trace of fire damage or smoke smell. The kitchen and bath were remodeled to actually blend more closely with the rest of the home than they did originally.
