Zip Contracting: Your Choice for Fire Damage Restoration
Fires can be among the most devastating disasters that impact homes in the Peel Region. Toronto area structures recovering after a fire often require some degree of repairs and reconstruction, which can be left to competent, licensed professionals like our Zip Contracting team. Post-disaster recovery is one of our many areas of expertise.
Removing Ruined Contents and Debris
Choosing a professional fire damage restoration service for Mississauga homes is often a combination of the mitigation and recovery your property needs with the repairs and reconstruction required to return homes to pre-loss condition. This process typically begins with removing debris, charred material remnants, and heaped ash and smoke solids from the property. Also, the water damage was caused by extinguishing the fire.
Cutting Out Burned Structure
Controlled demolition is often the preferred approach to preparing a property for the rebuilding it ultimately requires after fire losses. Drywall, for example, can be carefully inspected and tested to see the extent of the damage and if portions of panels can be preserved. Partial removal saves on later material costs and installation time. Some tools used in the controlled demolition process include:
- Oscillating saw
- Drywall saw
- Sheetrock and plaster pry bar
- Insulation vacuum
Repairing Damaged Utilities in Structural Cavities
With the structural cavities exposed, our team looks at the condition of hidden utilities within the walls. High heat situations can melt PVC conduit and PEX piping in the walls for electric and water utilities or cause stress and damage to other materials. Our experienced contracting team must repair and replace compromised components within these wall systems to get vital services back up and running.
Replacing Wall Assemblies
Once the demolition is completed and all the affected materials have been discarded safely, we can focus on the needed repairs and replacement efforts. Reconstructing wall assemblies involves multiple materials and calculated replacement. With much of the initial preparation stemming from controlled demolition, partial drywall panels and replacement building components are commonplace.
Many repairs are needed after fire damage impacts your home.
