Insurance Repairs & Re-instatements

 


Restoring a property following a disaster such as a fire, flood or storm should only be carried out by an expert. Otherwise, problems may remain undiscovered and could lead to further expensive claims. Bedfords Surveyors are reinstatement specialists: we have been handling insurance repairs for almost 40 years for all types of residential & commercial building claims.

Bedfords Surveyors work on behalf of insurers, loss adjusters and brokers, as well as private clients, providing a professional and cost-effective restoration service. Our expertise includes:

Fire reinstatements: when a property is affected by fire, the damage goes far deeper than the eye can see. Heat, smoke and extinguisher water can penetrate hidden areas and, if not properly treated, can cause problems for many years to come. Reinstatement specifications must allow for identifying and restoring this hidden damage as well as the more obvious problems.

Flood and escape of water reinstatements: damage from water spreads far and wide. Itís important that the property is properly dried out, sanitised and all damaged materials removed before repairs can start. Bedfords Surveyors will also offer advice on future flood protection methods and loss mitigation.

All other perils: storm impact and other major damage events such as earthquakes, explosions and hurricanes.
