No one wants to think about the possibility, but fires damage tens of thousands of homes across the US every year. If you have suffered a house fire in your Tallahassee home, it’s important that you work with a professional to get things back on track. You’ll need fire damage repairs to ensure that your home is safe to live in and that all signs of smoke, fire and water damage have been remediated. What are the most common types of fire damage repairs?
One of the most commonly needed types of fire damage repairs is rewiring for the home. Even if the fire did not start in the electrical system of your home, the heat from the flames can melt the protective plastic coating on the wires, leaving them bare and making them dangerous to use.
Heat and smoke rise, which means that the ceilings within your home likely need some work. However, it’s also possible that the roof needs some serious repairs. If the fire damaged the roof, you will need at least a partial roof replacement, but it may make more sense to replace the entire roof instead.
Today, most homes have PVC piping to carry water throughout the house. Plastic piping is lightweight, durable and affordable. However, it’s also flammable. Whether your pipes are in the ceiling or the floor, a house fire may mean that you need to have your piping repaired or even replaced.
