came out on 6/15/15 and tested for water. We still had dampness and one wall was still wet inside! His mold remediation crew came out the" very next day to dry it out.That took about 5 days. The following week they started the re-build. They had to put up new walls in 5 different locations, replace parts of ceilings and molding. They also had to replace two doors, one interior and one exterior. They moved all furniture and cleaned up after themselves really well.
,
and all of the guys on the different teams were very easy to work with. They returned calls and texts promptly and keep me appraised of the work along the way. I would recommend them and use them again.

"HORRIBLE. For starters, I hired him and PAID him $750 to install french doors in my home. He not only cancelled the day of installation but when he DID show up" late the next day he installed warped doors. He told me basically there was nothing he could do. Its my impression that if he provided the doors and installed them, then it is HIS responsibility to make sure they are acceptable and satisfactory. I have asked him over and over to come fix them or replace them and he ignores me. I figured if I hired him to do another job for me I could get him to fix the doors... THEN...I hired him to build an outdoor cat enclosure for me. He did HALF the job- leaving early each day he showed up - claiming some emergency and then showed up hungover and unable to work in the hot sun. He broke so many of my outdoor yard decorations with no concern whatsoever. He tore down the existing structure and just left it piled in my back yard. Then he snuck out the side gate on Friday and Saturday when I was home and left with his worker. I have not seen him since and it is Monday. I asked him on Friday when he left early to please communicate with me if he is going to leave. He ducks out when you aren't looking. He has not completed 1/4 of the job and I paid him most of what the bid was. I am now stuck having to hire another contractor to haul off the trash and finish the work he started. PLUS half of what he did was wrong and needs to be redone. The boards are crooked, big gaps in between areas that are supposed to be water tight. My yard is a wreck and now I am going to have to pay twice the amount to get this done. He is telling me he had a family situation come up and will come back on Wednesday to finish. There is no way in h*** I am letting him step foot on my property. I am going to take him to small claims court for my French doors and for a partial refund of what I paid him. He bought some materials and they are here so I will deduct that from what I want refunded.

Try SCOE 10x (Super Concentrated Odor Eliminator). Cost $25.00 ( includes shipping) for concentrate to make 32 oz. and 32 oz. spray bottle included.  This stuff is great!  I have cats and every now and then one of them pees on the rugs ( cat pee smell is awful as is cigarette smoke). You may need more than 32 oz. to get all the stink out but go to the website and read testimonials ( they will even send a concentrate of skunk smell for you to pour on something and then use the SCOE 10x on it to prove how good it works, for a few dollars more).  Anyway, this stuff worked like magic for me.  They also sell gallon and larger sizes.  Worth every penny!

You have every right to fire the GC, but it may cost you money in legal fees to fight any leins he has on the property. If you do insurance work you should know that you have to do part of the work out of your own cash reserves and wait for disbursement from the insurance company. His crews errors are not your problem, they are his. If you have problems you should include your insurance company in the problems you are having. If he is running into problems with extras they should only be related to things the adjuster missed and not his or his crews incompetence. If upon rip out he finds hidden water damage that would be an example. An example was a flood job I did not too long ago where we found termite damage that could not be seen untill after demo. Since it was not related to the flood it was not covered. Unless this is his first insurance job he should know the procedures and not be expecting money before it is due, stick to your guns and make sure he is doing the right job. If not include your insurance company and possibly even your mortgage company in any problems. A lein is not that big a deal though in the long run as long as you pay off the agreed amount as per contract. Just make sure if you stay with this guy he has a lien release with him when you give him the finnal check!

immediately placed their air scrubber machines to remove the smoke odor. They cleaned out all of the air conditioning air ducts, sofas and cushions, and cleaned the walls. I did not have to pay anything. They billed everything to the insurance company. I will recommend them 100% to everyone.

After several unsatisfactory consultations with other companies for my basement remodel, I was so pleased to find
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
! It was wonderful to work with professionals who were able to take my ideas and turn them into a functional space that far exceeded my expectations.
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
was so helpful by using his expertise to
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
out a beautiful floor plan and utilize the limited space. We had to deal with a lot of coding issues due to strict city guidelines, and he went above and beyond to collaborate with necessary sub-contractors to make the bathroom a success.

demonstrated high quality work and did an excellent job on completing the job quickly. I look forward to working with them on future remodeling projects.

Working with
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
was like living in H***! It was as if Satan stepped into my home dressed up in a
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
uniform. Originally, we had a problem with a leaking wax ring on a toilet. The flooring near the toilet simply needed to be dried out and replaced. First problem with
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
- they have faulty, poorly maintained equipment. The
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
large dehumidifier (used for drying out the bathroom floor) broke down and flooded my master closet causing signicant additional water damage to the floor and everything in the closet. The second problem with
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
- they do not deliver on their promised timeline. The
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
estimate for dry out time and replacement of flooring was 10-14 days. However, it took
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
over 30 days to even partially complete the job. The third problem and most significant problem with
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
- they are extremely unethical and their business practices are downright terrifying. We gave
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
a check for $10,000 for materials to begin work with the remainder to be paid upon completion. But, before the work was even half way completed,
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
FILED A
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
AGAINST OUR PROPERTY for the entire amount of our insurance claim! Several thousand dollars of the claim were not allotted for
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
. There were dollars allotted in the insurance claim for separate plumbing repairs that a licensed plumber was performing - NOT
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
. But, we made the mistake of being honest and showing the franchise owner the actual insurance claim - BIG MISTAKE! We thought
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
could better budget and work within the reimbursement guidelines of what the insurance company would pay for the line items that this franchise was completing. But, the franchise owner,
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
, thought he should get the ENTIRE amount of our insurance check and he would not relent even though HIS COMPANY DID NOT DO THE WORK! When we kindly pointed out his mistake, the owner reacted with hostility and threats. It was terrifying because this man was walking in and out of our house like he owned it - because he had the code to do the work on the flooring. He actually would park across the street and block our car in our own driveway when we tried to leave demanding the ENTIRE amount of the total insurance claim - immediately. Literally, working with
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
was like working with the Mafia. We contacted our insurance company who then called
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
to try to get them to understand that expecting to get paid for the ENTIRE insurance claim for work they did not complete or materials they did not use was not accurate or ethical. We then promptly paid
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
an additional $14,000 for the work they had completed and asked them to please NEVER COME BACK! Since
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
was paid in full, we then asked them to please remove the
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
from our property. BUT
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
WILL STILL NOT REMOVE THE
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
FROM OUR PROPERTY DESPITE BEING PAID IN FULL!! They have been paid in full (over $24,000) for the work they competed for over 6 months. Yet,
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
is still terrorizing us for an additional $2,000 for work they NEVER DID FOR US!!! Working with
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
is like living in a nightmare and not being able to wake up! Please help us!!!

We had serious water damage back in October and called
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
after finding them on this site. They had someone out at the house within an hour. He immediately staretd the process of drying out our damaged cabinets, walls and floor. The team worked closely with us throughout the insurance inspection and helped every step of the way. Our mortgage company took quite a bit of time to settle all of the paperwork and
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
was in constant contact with us, helping us to understand what we needed to do throughout the whole process. When time came to finally start demolition, he and
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
were at our house every day and available whenever we needed them. They coordinated everything and were able to remodel our entire kitchen (and replace our hardwoods) within two weeks. They had extremely professional crews and were on top of every detail. The team even came out on Saturday AND Sunday to ensure that we had a working kitchen in the original timeframes that they promised. The work is impeccable and the teams were friendly and extermely efficient. They were diligent about leaving our home clean after each workday and delivered a fabulous end product. I could not have been happier with the service and would recommend them to anyone that asked. I would absolutely hire them again.
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
and
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
are extremely professional and thorough. They turned what could have been a painful experience into an incredibly positive one! I will miss working with them.

When I reported the sewage leak to my insurance company, I asked for some companies they recommended. I told them I would check with Angie's List and if one of them received excellent reviews I would use one of those companies.
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
fit that criteria. I called and
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
, the owner, came over and looked at the mess that was the basement. There was a lot of stuff belonging to four generations of family members, most of whom are no longer alive. I had a lot of emotional attachment to the vast majority of what it would be necessary to remove and dump.
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
was amazing. He understood how difficult the whole situation was for me and spoke slowly and softly, making sure I was with him as he explained what needed to be done. It helped me to begin the process of detaching from the objects and look instead at the blessing of having the decision to get rid of those objects made for me. I felt comforted and protected. What was going too need to be done was still overwhelming for me, but I resolved to make things as easy for the workers as possible. To me that meant that i would allow almost everything to be tossed with as little interference from me as possible.

The three workers arrived Monday morning and were the same workers who were here for the rest of the week. They always arrived on time and worked almost continuously until lunch, and then again for a couple of hours after lunch.

Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
trucked things up from the basement, and
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
handled packing the
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
. This all happened on extremely hot and humid days which made the work that much worse. There were even a couple of brief downpours.The three men were unfailingly respectful, kind, and solicitous at all times. They were the definition of professional. They worried about how I was doing emotionally as well as physically from being in the constant sun and heat. They felt more like family than strangers, and considering the horrors that they were dealing with, absolutely wonderful. If something came up that seemed to have some value they always asked if I wanted to photograph the item. They showed me any boxes that came up and put them to the side if I wanted to go through them. Almost four skiffs were taken to the dump.
Once the items were removed, the entire wall where the sewer and drainpipes were located was removed as well as the bottom half of several other walls. There was a very intricate built in bar that was here when my family bought the house in 1956, as well as a wooden platform in the laundry area that also had to be disassembled and removed. They power-washed and sanitized everything and left dehumidifiers running for several days and nights. Some of the work had to be redone after the plumbers removed and replaced the sewer and drain pipes. Everything was cleaned up inside and outside when they were finished.

stopped by a couple of times to check on things and take pictures of the progress for the insurance company. He always made sure to check and see if I was satisfied and how i was doing personally. He guaranteed me that i would be thrilled when they were done. I was.
The whole situation was extremely stressful, but working with

Fortunately we were out-of-state when the explosion occurred on March 21, and we were able to stay out-of-state until the house was habitable. Family members handled things until we arrived home in mid-May. This involved working with insurance adjusters, city inspectors, and DW
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
. By the time we returned home in mid-May, the beams in the attic had been replaced, the bathroom had been retiled and painted, the plumbing was working, and two bedrooms were painted.
Mr.
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
's crew was invariably polite, courteous, and respectful. They worked around us when we returned, and made things as comfortable as possible. Mr.
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
coordinated the work and hired licensed electricians, HVAC people, a chimney expert, a garage door company, and a company to install new carpet. His crew painted, repaired and replaced ceilings and doors, and repaired cracks throughout the house. They even did some "extra" things, like make a new mantle for the fireplace, and install a new shower head. At the conclusion of their work they rehung our pictures, moved our furniture back into place, and cleaned up their work area.
Our home passed it's final inspection by the city building inspector on June 8. He told us that our home was the first of the 26 damaged homes to be completed. The building inspector also informed us of a serious fire hazard in our basement (which was not related to the explosion.) Our insulation was installed incorrectly. We decided to hire DW
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
to correct the problem, and it was done promptly. About a month after all the work was completed we had trouble using the dead bolt lock on our new back door. Mr.
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
sent someone over to the house who showed us "the trick" to locking the deadbolt.
In short, we are very happy with the work DW
Swansboro Water And Fire Damage Services Provider Name Locked
and Sons have done for us. We will call them again, if necessary. We highly recommend this company.

The first guys who came out smelled badly of cigarette smoke. They responded very quickly and seemed to do a very good job of drying the place out. They want you to fill out an evaluation on their iPad in their presence, so it is hard to be too critical. All-in-all they did a good job and I am satisfied.
