Insurance Policy Timeline for Damage Restoration Claims
- Appointment and Inspection (Mitigation)
When California Construction Superior Corp arrives at the scene, we greet the clients and walk through the property with them. Once the walk through is complete, our technicians will review the necessary steps to mitigate the water. At this point we discuss any questions or concerns that the client may have. At this point, law requires the client to sign a Work Authorization form so that we can begin the restoration process.
Mitigation is the process of removing excess water from the damaged area. Therefore, after removing excess water, we will remove damaged materials in the home and set up drying equipment to dry the affected area. Consequently, dry out times can be anywhere from 2 to 7 days for drywall and plaster. We will periodically check the affected area for proper drying.
- Demolition and Dry out
Once the area is dry, we remove the equipment from the site. Structural damage sites get a thorough cleaning in preparation for the restoration phase. The process begins with moving furniture, carpet and other valuables out of the work area. In some cases, we will need to perform demolition and removal of water damaged drywall. In the event that your damaged area will require structural repair, a technician will talk with the operations manager and set up a job with a sales estimator. This part of the process avoids the most delays.
