This depends on the level of damage your building has experienced, but we often phase the restoration to get tenants back into the space as quickly and safely as possible. Repair time also depends on any damage done to the building’s structure, which may not be immediately evident. If the building requires no reconstruction, the restoration process can happen quickly. Many aspects of a restoration can be a continuous process. Regular duct cleaning is required to completely remove particles, annual water and moisture mapping for mold is necessary to keep it under control, and general inspections are recommended to make sure the restoration is supporting a safe and functional building.

Before we begin on the services you need, we confirm your insurance policy and approved coverages. Having in-house insurance experts allows us to move fast. Prior to any disaster, ATI can work with your insurance company to create an inventory, capturing photos of the existing building and its contents and draft an emergency response agreement. Throughout the restoration process, we update the insurance company and send photos, preventing miscommunication or surprise costs.

These costs can vary significantly based on the extent of the damage but are often covered under your insurance policy. Contact ATI to review your specific building and insurance policy, and set a disaster recovery plan now that will meet your budget and avoid any surprises in the future.

You will likely need the advice of a professional to make this decision. Many buildings that appear destroyed beyond repair are salvageable, and vice versa. Contact ATI’s disaster recovery services to understand the best course of action.

After a natural disaster or accident, contact the team at ATI so we can assess your property. We will work closely with your insurance company and its adjusters and make recommendations for recovering materials, removing debris, and reconstructing your property.

It is an upgrade that is made when your property’s pre-loss condition no longer meets current, legal building codes. Your insurance company may recognize code upgrades in the estimation process. Any questions regarding code upgrades should be directed to your insurance adjuster.

When required, ATI’s Project Manager will take out the appropriate permit(s) on your behalf. If applicable, permit fees are included in the estimate and may be covered by the insurance company.

Knowledge and skill are beneficial if you need to reconstruct a property after a disaster. A reconstruction team is prepared to act quickly and identify barriers to success. They will remove debris, prepare the site, and then create plans to execute your vision. 

Recovery and restoration services salvage and restore your building and its contents to their original condition after a disaster. These services are focused on repair to damage. Recovery or restoration is often covered under insurance policies, while renovations are not. Renovations are typically reserved for the building itself, not the contents within a building.

Depending on what’s been documented and prepped before a disaster, getting your business back in good condition will depend on the damage, building type and age, and contents condition. Recovery and restoration experts can assess the damage and give an estimated schedule on the time it will take to repair. Contact one of our restoration experts to learn more about the process that is needed for restoring your commercial property.

It depends on the loss condition and the type of items, but more contents can be restored than most people assume. Documents, electronics, furniture, collectibles, heirlooms, and artwork are just some of the items that can be restored.

Document restoration, electronics/machinery restoration, fabrics or fibrous material restoration including services like dry cleaning and deodorization, removing contaminants from hard contents, art, heirlooms, antiques, and general Environmental Services are all part of what ATI offers for contents cleaning, recovery, and restoration.

Contents vary from client to client but can include documents, electronics, furniture, collectibles, heirlooms, artwork, area rugs, etc.
