1. Get in Touch with Your Insurance Provider as Soon as Possible

One of the first things you’ll want to do once safely evacuating the fire is contact your insurance provider. Before you start planning how to deal with damage and everything in between, you’ll want to discuss the incident with your agent in order to cover the exact details of your policy.

This is important because not only will it help you move forward in the restoration process, but it will ensure you’re aware of any and all coverages, including those that may entitle you to a living allowance or temporary accommodation assistance.

2. Ask For a Copy of the Fire Report

The fire report will cover crucial details surrounding the event, as well as the factors that contributed to the fire itself. As a comprehensive analysis, the report also includes basic information such as the date and time, the location, an account of the damage, and the source of the fire (if known), all of which is key to filing your insurance claim.

3. Keep a Record of Damaged Items

One of the most important parts of restoration is knowing what needs to be fixed and restored. While restoration (unfortunately) cannot replace all of the items you’ve lost, knowing what you value most and wish to bring back into your home will serve as a guiding force for the overall restoration process and rebuild with your team of contractors. At Abbey Platinum Master Built, we’ll partner closely with you to find the perfect plan that blends the home you knew and loved with a beautiful space full of potential and new beginnings, all with safety at the front of mind.

4. Choose Your Build Partner Carefully

It’s the little details that make a house truly feel like home, especially in the wake of such a traumatic event. That’s why you should never feel like you’re settling when choosing a restoration team, and deserve to have full faith in the hands that rebuild your home. Abbey Platinum Master Built is here to reassure you every step of the way, and will always have your vision and needs in mind!
