Working Through a Fire Restoration

Chances are you heard about the 3-alarm fire that happened back in April in Fleetwood, PA. The fire started shortly after 10 p.m. at 113 East Locust Street in Fleetwood and spread quickly to several other buildings. Damaging a total of four buildings and several cars in the process. Two of the homes were completely gutted and one severely damaged as well as a church. Thankfully none of the residents were injured, but it was a scary and sad night for all of them.

Now, it’s a few months later and we have been working closely with some of the homeowners in the architecture design for the restoration of their homes.

  • Watkins Architect provides fire restoration design services. They recently helped several families in Fleetwood PA.

Fire restoration is not a simple rebuild. There are many emotions that come into play, and many other factors.

During the assessment is when the decision of whether the structure is solid and able to use or if it needs to be a complete rebuild is made. After the assessment is completed and it is discovered what is salvageable, we then move onto discussing plans. This is where you decide how you want your future home to be restored and what you want included.

If some of the structure can be salvaged, we sit down and discuss what can be salvaged and how you would like the rest of the layout to be. If it is a complete rebuild, we discuss what aspects of your home you would like to see in the rebuild and the layout. After the design is approved, the renovations begins.

Losing your home to a fire is not something any homeowner wants to experience, let alone happen. However, through fire restoration we guide you through the rebuilding of your home and do our best to make the outcome be a positive one.
