One of the Five Star Restoration differences is that build back and reconstruction is all handled by our in-house experts. There is no handing off the reconstruction to a third party who may not even understand water or fire damage, and who is not vested in your ultimate satisfaction and comfort. Five Star handles repair, cleanup, and build back completely, ensuring every need is communicated, and your requirements are met. Our written warranty guarantees your satisfaction.  


So how does build back and reconstruction work?  Through a lot of detailed steps.  A flood or a fire in your home or building is a devastating event. When faced with such a situation, it is important to ensure that steps are taken to mitigate damages. This is crucial in preventing further deterioration to your home or structure. 


In the case of water damage, it is crucial to dry the affected area in the quickest possible time to prevent mold growth. If you have experienced fire, immediate cleanup is likewise important. Soot residue becomes acidic and causes rust. This results in further deterioration to your property. 


While these events may seem catastrophic, quick action can save you thousands of dollars in build back and reconstruction costs. 


Hiring a professional and experienced company to help you with the cleanup and subsequent repairs ensures that you are able to go back to your normal routine faster and with less stress. We strive to restore your home as it was before the damage occurred.

Steps in Build Back and Reconstruction

Floods, large plumbing and appliance leaks, and fires have no logic to where and when they strike. The aftermath of such events can undoubtedly be distressing and traumatic. In the wake of disaster, a restoration company that has experts ready to respond and provide help 24/7 is your best chance of salvaging your property. When time is of the essence, this is a deal breaker.


Build back and reconstruction starts at that time of your emergency. A professional restoration company can help you every step of the way from cleanup to rebuilding of your property to its pre-water or pre-fire damage condition. Here is what to expect when you hire Five Star Restoration.


Board up. Fires or flooding can destroy doors, windows or openings in your home or building. This makes your property vulnerable to the elements, and even unscrupulous individuals and looters.   

Part of the build back and reconstruction service is boarding up any holes to keep your property secure. This can also include putting up temporary fencing for added security or roof tarping that ensures no further damage is incurred by your home or building after your emergency.


Dry Out. Five Star water or fire damage restoration crews prevent further damage to your home or building by quickly acting on drying any water damage or humidity.  Keep in mind that your home can experience water damage not only through flooding but also through water used by firefighters when putting out the fire on your property. 


We have specialized equipment to help dry out humidity and water residue quickly and efficiently. This is a critical step because mold can grow quickly if water is allowed to stand even for just a few hours. 


Having mold in your home can cause serious health problems including throat irritation, nasal stuffiness, eye irritation, cough and wheezing, as well as skin irritation in some cases.


Odor Removal and Pre-Cleaning. This is another crucial step. It is important to do a pre-cleaning to remove odor that can make your home or building uninhabitable. 


Soot residue from a fire is particularly damaging. It is acidic and can cause corrosion to any parts of your property that may initially have been less damaged by a fire.

Help with Insurance Claims.  As art of the process we take detailed photos of contents and areas damaged by water or fire to help with insurance claims.

Pack Up and Move Out. The structure of your home or building is not the only thing that gets destroyed by a flood or a fire. Any possessions you have within are damaged as well. 

Wel ensure that all debris is safely removed from your property and properly disposed of. 


While some things may be damaged beyond repair, there are still some items that you may be able to salvage or fix. 


We provide a detailed inventory and if required, pack up and storage of salvageable items as part of the build back and reconstruction services.   No need to put items at risk while reconstruction teams are returning our home to it’s pre-damge condition.


Mold Inspection and Remediation. It is important to have your damaged property inspected for mold, particularly in the drywall and ceilings. Results of this test will determine how much of the remaining drywall or ceilings need to come down and the scope of work that needs to be done during renovation.  

Build Back and Reconstruction. Once any mold situation is addressed, repairs to restore your property to its pre-fire/water-damage state can begin.  This is where our home design and construction experts take over, ensuring your home will be beautiful as well as safe when renovation is completed.

The scope of work can include:


  • Carpet cleaning



  • Carpet, hardwood, laminate & tile installation


  • Carpentry & framing


  • Window installation


  • Cabinetry


  • Drywall removal & installation


  • Painting


  • Plumbing and electrical
