Fire Damage Restoration Construction

No matter where your home is located, it is always susceptible to fire damage.  Whether the threat be wildfire or even an appliance inside your own house, there are certain steps that you can take to protect yourself, your family, and your home.  Unfortunately, wildfires are an often unpredictable threat.  However, it is important that you do whatever you can to protect your home.  For instance, making sure that you regularly clear dead leaves, branches, and other potential kindling away from your house and reduce the chances of a fire spreading to your property.  It’s also vital that you have functioning smoke alarms.  Check regularly to ensure that they are functioning in a time of emergency.  Here’s a great video about how to check your smoke alarm.  Lastly, consider utilizing a less-flammable landscape.  Many conservation-friendly landscape designs rely heavily on the use of rocks, cement, and dirt.  This ultimately makes for a landscape which is less susceptible to fire damage.

Water Damage Restoration Construction

Simple Restoration works with all insurance companies when it comes to water damage restoration.  We pride ourselves on acting quickly and efficiently to restore your home to how it was in its prime.  With the quickest response time and most competitive rates in Montclair, Simple Restoration is the first choice in home restoration for many.  However, the preferable alternative to going through insurance claim processes and dealing with the stress of the situation is to prevent water damage from happening in the first place.

  • Invasive Plant Roots

When designing the exterior of your home, you should take precautions with which plants you install and where.  Some plants, such as poplar and magnolia trees, have very invasive roots, which can easily work their ways into your home’s foundation, pipes, or sprinkler system.  Obviously, this can cause water systems to rupture, cause a flood, and therefore, result in water damage.  Plant trees at least 20 feet away from your home, and pay attention to which shrubs line the exterior walls of your house.  If they are invasive, they can also potentially cause water damage.  Being conscious of which plants surround your house can be a huge preventative measure.

  • Improper Grease Disposal

Although it’s not always the easiest practice, disposing of your grease properly is beneficial for quite a few reasons.  Most importantly, it can build up, solidify, and become a nasty clog in your sewage pipe.  This can eventually cause the pipe to burst and flood your home with sewage.  Whether you flush your pipes with hot or cold water, this is still a possibility if you pour your grease down the sink.  Sure, you can use detergents and other chemicals to help break the grease down, but this doesn’t always work.  Instead, the safest bet is to either wait for fatty grease to solidify and to simply throw it away, or to collect your grease and recycle it.  Many recycling centers now accept grease for no charge.  While you are collecting grease or storing it for proper disposal, you should use a can or a glass jar to ensure that it doesn’t leak and make a mess.

  • Obstructed Gutters

It’s one of those things that’s always on your to-do list, but hardly ever gets done, but cleaning your gutters regularly drastically lowers the risk of water damage occurring inside of your home.  Every once in awhile, you should safely climb to the roof of your house and take a look inside all of the gutters.  If they are full of leaves, bird nests, sticks, dirt, and other debris, they can easily get clogged when it rains.  In that case, water will flow over the edges of your gutters, and down to your home.  Since the water would then be allowed to flow freely, it could possibly damage your ceiling, your roof, or your home’s foundation.  So next time you’re doing some chores around the house, maybe you should consider checking to see if your gutters are obstructed.  If your gutters happen to be too high for you to safely access, then you should hire a professional to get up there are look for you.  Never sacrifice your own safety in situations you don’t feel comfortable with.

Remodeling Constructionhome remodeling

If you are looking to breathe some new life into your home, you might not know exactly where to start.  Oftentimes, we can have so many great ideas for what we want to accomplish that it can become overwhelming.  For instance, you may want to install new flooring, paint a few rooms, and replace your windows.  Where would be the right place to start?  How should remodeling steps be prioritized?  All too often, homeowners get overwhelmed by all of these decisions and end up putting off their remodeling project for years.  On the other hand, it is also common for some to update certain elements of their home but not others, creating an ominous sort of unbalance between modern and outdated.

  • Entryways

Although you may take it for granted, the entryway to your home creates the first impression that someone gets when they enter your home.  The largest and most effective change that you can make to your entryway is adding a porch.  Not only will it improve your home’s external appearance, but it will also serve to make visitors feel like they are entering a grand building.  A front porch addition is a bold architectural structure which will make more home stand out.  It can also serve to protect packages and guests from harsh weather.

  • Kitchen Remodeling

Your kitchen is the heart of your home.  It’s also the room of your home which sees the most regular use.  Therefore, it deserves to be updated!  Kitchen cabinets especially, are a dead give away when it comes to the age of your home.  While traditional designers would advise you to stick to one metal for all of the hardware in your kitchen, we don’t see any problem with mixing it up!  For example, having brass handles on your cabinets and steel appliances creates a nice balance in a neutral white kitchen.  However, your preference should dictate the style standards in your own home!

  • Landscaping

`Make sure to always trim hedges and tree branches so that they don’t obstruct your entryway… stray branches can give your home a spooky feel.  Consider removing any large bushes next to your doorway which might make it feel confined.  Opening up the space can make it feel much more welcoming.
