A code or by-law upgrade is an upgrade that is made when your commercial property’s pre-loss condition no longer meets legal building codes. Your insurance company may recognize code upgrades in the estimation process. Any questions regarding code upgrades should be directed to your Insurance Adjuster.
Depending on the scope of the project and the amount of damage to your home and its contents, the restoration process may require several phases before completion. A thorough evaluation and assessment of all damage will be done before the estimate of a completion date can be established. Through it all, your ServiceMaster Restore Project Manager will communicate details to you and your Insurance Provider clearly and effectively, to make the process seamless.
The extent of damage and the construction of the furniture will determine if it can be restored. Your furniture must be dried before damage can be adequately assessed. Non-salvageable furniture will be documented for you and if any items need to be discarded, a customer release form will need to be signed.
