This is obviously dependent upon the size and scope of your project. The most difficult part of the project is the beginning phases. Quite often after a fire, the scene in on lockdown by local authorities as they do their investigation as to the cause and origin of the fire. Your insurance company might also send out a member of their internal team for this purpose. Do not be alarmed as this is a normal procedure. Many times this is to help determine whether or not subrogation is necessary.
Once the scene is released, First Response
and your assigned adjuster will create a scope for the repairs. First Response will submit their scope to the adjuster for review in order to get approval to begin the work with an agreed-upon price. This allows everyone to know exactly what is covered and what insurance is paying. Once we get approval from the adjuster, we will go over our scope with you and provide you with target dates for each major step of the restoration process.
