Fire damage is devastating. Even though fire is something all around us abstractly, having a fire strike in your own home can be overwhelming. In the midst of personal loss, you are left with figuring out how to repair your home. Here are a few questions to ask any potential vendors:
1. What are your credentials?
When you are dealing with fire restoration, it is very important to make sure that the vendor you choose is highly certified. You want to hear any potential vendor say they are certified by the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning Restoration Certification). Don’t be afraid to ask about the accreditations and licences held by a potential vendor--you want the very best for your home!
GRAP holds certifications by the IICR and the National Home Builders Association. If you’d like more information on what these certifications mean--or would like details on accreditations and awards, please ask. We’re very proud of our work and would love to share details with you.
2. How long have you been in business?
Fire restoration is an arduous, complex process. It involves many steps that each require specialized services and constant communication with insurance companies. You’re going to want to work with a company that has a lot of experience with both the physical work of fire restoration and working with insurance companies.
GRAP has been deeply rooted in serving Southwest Georgia for over 40 years--our team of master tradesmen and supervisors have been working in this field their whole lives. Their skill and experience is unmatched. Our project managers are such experts in communication and procedures that they are often consulted by other professionals. We offer the very best and would love to work with you.
3. Where is your company based?
The roots of a company can tell you a lot about it. Many companies are branches of large chains. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, a company that is based in your area is often going to have a more vested interest in the community--meaning they are more invested in your home.
GRAP is family owned and operated. Our president created this company after working with his dad in residential construction and seeing a need in his community of South Georgia for quality assurance reconstruction. We live and operate by the family values of honesty and hard work
