Greenfield St. Fire Restoration

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade..

When long time residents, Mr. & Mrs. Perera, of River Forest, Illinois endured a home fire in 2022, they were devastated. Their home located on Greenfield Street was filled with smoke and soot from a fire and deemed unfit to live in until the atmosphere of the home was of sufficient air quality for daily living. Among many who have a home fire, they were unprepared for such an event to occur. When the fire trucks extinguished the fire and left the scene, Mr. & Mrs. Perera were left facing the ashes and pondering fearfully what to do next. Fortunately, the founder of Restore Construction, Inc. is also a long time resident of River Forest and caught wind of their story and decided to see if Restore could help. It turned out Restore, could and, did in fact help Mr. & Mrs. Perera with their recent tragedy. Not only was Restore able to help the Pereras with their insurance claim and restoration needs but, they were able to turn an unfortunate situation into an opportunity.

One of the reasons Restore is among the best in fire restoration is the company’s expert ability to assess the insurance claim and homeowner’s insurance policy. One of the first steps Restore takes with a new client is to review the client’s Homeowners Insurance Policy thoroughly. Next, Restore’s team of insurance experts will carefully comb through the damages on-site and identify what can, and can not be, repaired. Using state-of-the-art technology and tools to appropriately examine and document evidence of smoke and soot damage, Restore will prepare a claim package on behalf of the owner to present to the insurance company which will ensure that the property is restored to pre-loss condition. 

In the case of  Mr. & Mrs. Perera’s claim it was declared, and agreed upon by insurance, that many of the spaces in the home were not going to be able to be repaired but instead would need to be demolished and rebuilt. As a complete solution for disasters, Restore was hired to also do the reconstruction on the Perera’s home and were able to start workin on the home right away. Now, the home is finished and the turnout is quite impressive.  See below a written testimony by Mr. Perera.

"Like most professional services it comes down to people. That can make a break things and when having a home destroyed by fire it’s just that much more critical. Restore’s entire has and continues to be amazing and supportive. Chris was our project manager and Tom was our project construction lead. They are pretty much family now after seeing us through the rebuild and we are happy to be back in our beautifully reconstructed home."
