Precise definitions of sustainable construction vary. In the U.S. , the EPA defines sustainable construction as “the practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and deconstruction.” Key concepts of sustainable construction include the protection of the natural environment, choice of non-toxic materials, reduction and reuse of resources and waste minimization.

Experiencing a home fire can be a devastating and frightening experience and one that can seem overwhelming when dealing with the aftermath. Postponing fire restoration can result in the damage becoming worse and eventually costing a considerable amount of money for repairs. However, making the restoration a priority can help avoid costly repairs and long term damage. The most important step in this process is contacting a fire restoration contractor.
Fire restoration contractors specialize in the restoration process, are trained to handle the damage that comes with home fires and can reduce the risk of further damage. Fire restoration contractors will work diligently to salvage as many of your belongings as possible and they will work quickly to return you to your home as quickly as possible. It is recommended to go through your homeowners insurance company for reliable fire restoration contractors as there often times are “fire chasers” that pray on those who are most vulnerable. If you choose to select a contractor on your own, make sure to do thorough investigation and reference checks. Also, verify all licenses and insurance are up to date and there are no mechanic’s liens on their business.
Getting back to normal after a house fire is a long road but can be done with relative ease, with the right help. If you find yourself needing the expertise of a license, insured fire restoration contractor, please contact S&S Construction Restoration, (760) 559-2667.
