When a business or commercial property is shaken by an earthquake and needs restoration for the damages, the best solution for an owner or property manager is to contact their insurance carrier and then select a qualified fire damage restoration contractor who can bid the full scope of work required. If you solicit different contractors, you may run the risk of them not being able to bid everything needed, which could mean you have to find qualified subcontractors as well.
Another way that less qualified or honest contractors keep the cost low is by leaving items out of the scope of work, with the intention of going back to your insurance adjuster and requesting supplemental funds for an extended scope at a later date. Supplementing the scope is usually discouraged by insurance adjusters, as they start to question your contractor’s expertise and motives. Lesser qualified contractors who do not have experience with earthquake restoration may think they can bid repairs and not replacement in an effort to keep costs down.
Be sure that whatever contractor you choose does not deliberately keep the scope lean by thinking they can repair damage that really must be replaced. Doing so will mean your finished property looks patched instead of returned to its original condition prior to the damage. Deliberately or unintentionally under-projecting all of the details that go into this specific scope of work could result in hidden fees later that your insurance might not cover, not to mention weeks or months of delay to completion.
Sometimes a portion of work is legitimately unseen in advance or mistakenly overlooked. When this happens, your insurance carrier will accept a supplement to the scope. Monster Contractor knows that insurance carriers and restoration contractors are expected to use a price library specific to the insurance industry. We know through experience that carriers press contractors to lower their per unit price for materials and encourage contractors to buy inferior materials and use inexpensive and inexperienced labor. Monster Contractor will advocate on your behalf against this as it ultimately provides you, the home or business owner, an inferior end product.
