4 Things to Look for in a Restoration Company
When you find yourself dealing with the aftermath of a disaster, finding a qualified restoration company can be intimidating. Your property is likely damaged or destroyed, your family’s often displaced and your life feels like it’s spinning out of control. Whom should you trust? How can you know if they can handle restoring your property and will do the job right?
While some online reviews can be questionable, a good place to start is by checking Better Business Bureau listings and other sources of consumer information on restoration companies. If you see a pattern of consistently negative consumer experiences with a company, it’s probably best to look for another comany.
Unfortunately, accreditations, ratings and reviews can fail to provide a complete picture of the company. We’re talking about your property and your family, here, so you need more.
What are some other things to take into account?
Disasters don’t work around your schedule. “After hours” is meaningless when your home or business is flooded, damaged from fire or contaminated with hazardous materials. You need a restoration company that’s available and responsive any time of day, any day of the year. You need to know they’ll be there when you need them, whether it’s right after a disaster or even months. You need to know they’re not going anywhere.
In addition, if a company is made up of people who have worked in the industry for decades, chances are they do good work, treat people well and conduct themselves with integrity.
Big, national chains benefit from big buying power, automation and other sorts of mass production strategies to offer low-cost services. But a closer look at what you may be giving up for those savings can make them seem less like savings and more like sacrifices.
Local companies are your neighbors, plain and simple. They’re invested in you and your community because you are their neighbor and your community is their community. They’re in your corner. You’d better believe that makes a difference.
Look for a restoration company in your community, and you’ll find and talk to real people who will be there for you any time, day or night. And they’ll become more than your restoration company. They’ll become your friends. Who better to help you get back to normal than friends?
Be selfish. It really is about you, your family, your property. So focus on what a restoration company can do for you.
