The work was done well although it took awhile to schedule and almost a week to put a roof on a 1000 sq ft house. This is a restoration company with lots of insurance work, so roofing isn't their No 1 job. But I had the roof inspected, and the report said it was a good quality job. I must give extra kudos because when I had running water coming in my living room, they came out and fixed it temporarily ASAP. The office staff, managers and workers were all super courteous.

Nordic provided us with an estimate in a reasonable amount of time.

Rossnagle, the estimator, was good to work with. This is where the good part ended. When we reviewed the contract that Nordic provided us, there were a whole list of items/clauses in the contract that were either not applicable or one-sided. we spoke with the office manager and they essentially came back after speaking with the owner (
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
) and said that you can either sign it but if you are asking for changes "it is not worth it to us". Had the owner,
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
called and made a genuine effort to work with us to resolve our concerns and get to mutually agreable language, that would have been the norm in a customer centric world. However, this experience just exemplifies, why this industry continues to sadly suffer in its reputation. A
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
example of one of their many clauses in the contract is that a sub-contractor could have the right to put a

on the house. This should not even be required as Nordic is the general contractor. A second one is limiting any claims against them to only 12,000, less than 50% of the value of the work. I'd strongly advise reviewing their agreements and business practices carefully before you decide to sign on the dotted line. The final kicker - all the references they gave me were from 2011; half the numbers I called yesterday were no longer active. To be fair, they came highly recommended but we were very disaapointed with the way they approached the enaggement.

Met with

December 31, 2012, things were just beginning to settle down after our annual family holiday get-together. My son and his family had left for home that morning, one daughter and her family were at home preparing for New Year's Eve, and my house was relatively quiet with only my younger daughter her husband and small son still here. She and I were in the kitchen about to fry something when all of a sudden she shouted "GREASE FIRE!" The fire alarm went off and she got everyone out of the house. I tried to contain the fire first with a heavy towel, then a fire extinguisher and finally I turned a large soup pot over it upside down on my way out. All this happened in the two minutes between the fire alarm and the arrival of the firemen. Before the firemen left, I had already been visited by two "vultures" who just happened to be in the neighborhood and wanted me to sign a contract for their company to do my restoration This made me feel very vulnerable as a widowed older woman. The next day, my son-in-law put me in contact with a restoration company he knew to be reputable. That is where my luck changed. These were some of the nicest people I'd ever met. A few days later they recommended I use

and
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
for my renovation, which by this time had become far more extensive than I had ever imagined. From my first meeting with
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
, I was put completely at ease. It was as if I were working with my father or my most trusted best friend.

told me in the beginning I would be happy with the final product and I can say without any reservations, "I could not be happier!" I guess the best advice I have for someone considering

I have to say that my initial impression was wonderful. I went from being extremely apprehensive of going with a big company like this to feeling very at ease.
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
was extremely professional and polite. He was thorough and I have confidence in the job they will ensure is done. I was a little surprised by the couple of negative responses on Angie's List b/c I use Angie's list frequently when I need service done. So, I thought I'd go ahead and at least share my initial opinion. I will update once we move forward as to how things go as we progress. For now though, I feel blessed to have found this company.

They arrived that day, removed the water-damaged square of ceiling from my family room, put some plastic over the hole, cleaned up the mess, and left. It took the two employees around 40 minutes altogether. $700 for this was a bit steep, but they didn't come out until around 5:30PM if I remember correctly so perhaps some of the cost was related to being after hours.
A few days later someone came out and quoted out the work to repair the interior of my home. The total cost for this was quoted at $3,000. Keep in mind we're talking about maybe a 4x4 hole in my ceiling. This price seemed exorbitant to me, but I wasn't really worried about interior repairs while I still had water potentially causing more damage from my roof.
The company did not work with my insurance, and instead let them come out unaccompanied. Of course, the claim was denied.
I then proceeded for a couple of months to ask them to come determine the issue and quote out the work that needed done. Despite a multitude of calls, my requests were ignored. Finally, when I called the main office and inquired as to why I was being completely ignored, I got a call back. The gentleman I spoke to said he felt bad to charge me if the leak was from a pipe boot and offered to have his roofer just come out and do that for me directly for cash. I accepted, the roofer came out and did the job, and I paid him. The leak continued.
I then called
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
back multiple times and got no response. I emailed the gentlelman at
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
and he didn't respond. Finally, I gave up.
It's been several months now and I still have a hole in my ceiling and a leak in my roof.

Referred by my insurance company. Arrived as scheduled with equipment to help with drying out the area. This equipment worked great. The next day or so, an estimator arrived and gave an estimated estimate (never gave an actual dollar amount). Then the fun began.
Task 1. Crew arrived to tear down ceiling and replace it. They spoke Spanish as a native language and very poor English. The person from
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
didn't speak Spanish any better than I did. I did get my desires across. Task 2. Removing the carpet was easy. Found oak floors from 1927 underneath. Decided to have these redone vs. adding carpet. The floor refinisher did his job and had me out of the house for 3 days to allow the varnish to dry. When I arrived home after this, I found that the floors looked good except for the edges which were much lighter than the rest of the floor. I had the refinisher (who at least spoke English) was rude when I asked him to redo the lighter edges. He did this and it did look better but, I was charged extra for this extra work. This was something that I didn't know about until after I received the final bill. Task 3. Putting cork flooring in the kitchen was another issue. I had to purchase the flooring since the
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
rep said that he couldn't provide samples of this. The installation went well but, since that time, I have had to go back and re-nail the edges as they weren't firmly secured at time of installation.

In April 2013, we suffered a devastating house fire at 2 a.m at the end of my son’s Senior year. We lost almost everything of monetary value and the house was destroyed. After being hounded (one actually showed up while the fire was still happening with a contract) by several “ambulance chaser” type restoration businesses, my adjuster suggested after we settled in our temporary housing to do my homework and research top-rated restoration and reconstruction businesses in the area. I went to Angie’s List as suggested. After all of the multiple positive reviews on
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
and very impressive before and after
images, I gave
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
a call.
He followed up with me instantly and I was immediately impressed with his professionalism, attitude, honesty, and willingness to help me every step of the way (I am a single mom). The next day
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
came to my temporary residence at my convenience to introduce himself and to walk our damaged home with me. I was relieved and felt at ease with his intense knowledge and intention to detail while he assessed the damaged (total loss) as he was extremely thorough and patient as he guided me through every step with my insurance company and mortgage company. The next day
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
had his crew out to the house with his demolition team and begin clearing everything out.
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
’s entire crew were all very prompt and professional. When he let me know when his crew would be there and what work would be completed, he was right on schedule. He encouraged me to continue to come by to
watch the progress, and he was always more than willing to walk through the entire build with me. He gave me suggestions and advice where I had no clue what to choose.
He lived up to every positive review that I read from others: he was prompt, professional, and made me feel as if I were his only client.
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
always responded quickly, and never showed any frustrations with my lack of knowledge of the process. There was not one moment I felt nervous or felt that my decision to use
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
was a mistake. For such a devastating experience, he made it seamless and kept my spirits up as my once destroyed home became my custom dream home which is absolutely beautiful.
For any restoration or construction need, I highly recommend
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
and will never use another company again for any type of construction services.
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
certainly does “Build with Integrity”.

is a company that provides their clients with great customer service. I have referred this company on more than one occasion and will continue to do so.
Our water heater leaked an inch of water in our dining room hallway. I called
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
and told them my issue. They had someone out in less that an hour from when I called!
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
came in and assessed the damage. He was very honest with replacement options and price estimates.
Our carpet is very old and frankly not worth fixing as we originally planned on replacing it...just not this soon. He was professional, knowledgeable and very understanding.
I hope I don't need to call them again, but absolutely would if more
Darlington Water And Smoke Damage Specialists Provider Name Locked
occurs. It's refreshing to see a company with such an honest, efficient and knowledgeable approach!

was a tremendous help through the entire construction process. He was remarkably responsive. Even when things did not go as planned (as in all construction projects), he was quick to respond, on-hand, attentive and ensured a positive outcome. His strong work ethic and trustworthy approach were invaluable to me during the stress of a fire-related rebuild. The townhome came out beautiful. I would definitely recommend him.
