What to Consider When Calculating Fire Damage Restoration Costs?
Fire damage can be devastating, and the cost of restoring a home or building after a fire can be steep. But what exactly goes into that cost? How much does it really cost to restore a property damaged by fire? In this blog post, we’ll take a look at the factors that professionals consider when calculating fire damage restoration costs.
The Scope of Damages
The first step any professional takes when assessing the scope of the damages is to evaluate all areas of the property that have been impacted by the fire. This includes not only structural damages but also smoke and soot damage, as these are often more pervasive and can cause long-term health hazards if not dealt with properly. It’s important to note that each situation is unique and may require specialized equipment or expertise in order to complete the job correctly and safely. That’s why it’s always best to hire a qualified team of experts who specialize in fire damage restoration.
Fire Cleanup Processes
Once an evaluation has been made, a professional will then assess what type of cleaning processes need to be completed in order to restore the property back to its original condition. This could include removal of charred materials, soot cleaning, air purification, mold remediation, odor control, and more. Each process requires specialized equipment and materials which must be factored into the overall cost estimate for the project. Additionally, depending on how severe the damage is, some areas may need to be completely rebuilt from scratch which will add even more costs onto the final bill.
The Timeline for Restoration
The timeline for restoration depends heavily on how extensive the damages are; however, there are certain steps that must be taken regardless of severity before rebuilding can begin such as ensuring all hazardous materials have been removed from affected areas (such as asbestos), all affected walls/floors have been thoroughly cleaned/sanitized, etc.. As such, it is essential that you work with professionals who understand how long these processes typically take in order to ensure accurate timelines are established and adhered to throughout your project’s duration.

Do the Math!
Using Estimation Pros as your full-time estimator is less expensive than hiring someone in-house.
Let’s do the math:
$59,557 Avg Resto Estimator Salary
1.4x SBA’s multiplier for additional employee costs
$83,379 Avg. TOTAL cost for in-house estimator
$550 Avg. cost for Xactimating estimate – 25K to 50k
$0 Additional costs, fees, taxes, etc. – NONE
$550 Total cost for a quote from Estimation Pros
152 – That’s the number of 25k to 50k estimates your in-house estimator will need to produce to be less expensive than Estimation Pros.
Your estimator would need to produce 1.5 quotes EVERY WORK DAY!
(240 work days/year ➗ 151 estimates to pay their salary)
Is your estimator producing 1.5 quotes a day, every single working day?
If not, you’re losing money.
