Fire may be a result of lightning, electrical problems, or an accident. In our experience, the actual fire damage can typically be remediated with an overall understanding of the building loads or structural repair. Many time these repairs may be atypical to the original construction but must be designed to fill the purpose of carrying the weight of the building.
The larger challenges associated with fire damage, in our experience, is the damage caused by soot and chemical off-gassing that occurs during the fire. These two create a chemical cocktail that is unhealthy for the occupants of the property, both at the time of the fire and into the future. Any plan to restore the property does not take into account that these challenges will fail.
