Restoring Custom Woodwork After Fire or Flood

The things that make a house a home are often the fine touches that you put on yourself. Custom woodwork, custom cabinets, ornate moldings, closets that are just the right size—all these things suit your lifestyle and make your home unique. Sadly, these items are also the first to go when fires or floods strike. Custom woodwork is highly susceptible to fire damage, water damage, and mold. A professional, experienced restoration company with skilled staff can restore your custom woodwork and bring your home back to its original condition. SunGlo Services will take you through the process required to restore custom woodwork.


Assessment

Before restoration can begin, it is important to know how much and what type of damages have occurred. Restoration after water damage and restoration after fire damage require different techniques. Areas not in the central flood or fire area may suffer only surface damages and can be restored more easily.

Records

Undamaged pieces from other rooms can show how banisters, molding, cabinets or closets looked before the damages occurred. If undamaged pieces are not available, pictures can also show the original state of the property. If neither of these comparisons are available, the homeowners can select custom woodwork examples that most resemble the original woodwork.
