What does a restoration contractor do?
When your home or business property is no longer functioning the way it was intended, a restoration contractor will reconstruct it back to the original state.
Often, a restoration contractor will work with insurance companies when damage is covered under a policy. Sometimes property owners will consider modifications or improvements at this time while a property is being renovated.
A restoration contractor must have a diverse set of skills, equipment and supplies to repair every type of damage and different structures.
How to choose a restoration contractor
When choosing a contractor to restore your property, it is important to consider the firm’s experience, skills, and resources.
Many older structures have unique woodwork that can’t be replaced at Home Depot. Hart & Sons, Inc. owns a 20,000 square foot factory in Plainfield where we can custom manufacture any woodwork needed to exactly match components in your property.
We also own our own metal fabrication equipment so we can easily manufacture decorative copper roofing, aluminum parts and metal flashings.
A contractor who may be an expert at replacing shingle roofing may not have much experience repairing a slate roof. For more than one century we have been replacing every type of roofing material from slate, to rubber, to metal. The inventory of slate in our warehouse is the largest in the Northeast.
Will work be done by a subcontractor?
One other thing you may want to know about hiring a restoration contractor in Union or Essex County. Do they use their own employees or subcontractors? At Hart & Sons, Inc. all of our staff are employees. Many have worked with us for decades. We know what results to expect.
When might you need a restoration company?
Sometimes damage happens swiftly such as from a storm or flood causing the need for emergency repairs. A tree may fall on your roof causing rain to come in or an ice build up destroys gutters and facia boards or part of your roof.
Other times, restoration is needed when a building has been damaged over time such as from aging, neglect or an improper installation. Failing paint can cause wood to rot. Loose or missing mortar can allow bricks to crack or decay.
Some of the causes of damage to your property might be:
- Storm damage
- Hail, wind and rain
- Water damage due to flooding
- Leaking roof
- Ice dam issues
- Commercial building restoration
- Aging historic home or building
- Foundation settlement
- Improper installation
