Fire damage

Thankfully, most homeowners will never experience a fire. But when it does happen — especially if you’re planning to sell your home — the damage can be catastrophic. Minor damage, such as a small kitchen fire, is usually fairly easy to repair and not especially costly.

But a large fire leaves behind a heavily damaged home and an expensive, ongoing problem. While much of the damage will be visible, a fire can also damage pipes, the electrical system, insulation, and the roof. And you may need to hire an engineer to be sure the fire hasn’t affected the foundation, because even a concrete slab can be damaged by fire. In addition, any fire damage will need to be disclosed to potential buyers of your property.
