What Others Say About Us
"Just wanted to let you know Slavic just finished up our job today and we are so happy with it. He came Friday and did an immaculate job on the patching of the hole in our ceiling (water damage). The texturing job was the best I’ve ever seen, you can’t tell there was any work done. Today he came by and painted. It was done quickly, professionally and with NO mess. He’s a credit to your organization, I would have no problem recommending Lawton to anyone I know. Thanks so much"

"As much as I will be very happy to have everything done…I think I will miss the crew as they are all very sweet and helpful. You don’t know how important all this is until you loose everything. I can say 100% if I had it to do over I would never consider another contractor. The entire process is very personal and Lawton treats it that way…I would happily relay my experience to anyone…they were great!"
Angela D.
"I have had two major home repairs completed by Lawton — in my kitchen and bathroom. These jobs, to repair water damage, included multiple elements — mitigation, drywall, flooring, cabinet work, electrical, etc. Their work has been excellent; their employees courteous and reliable. In addition, the costs have been quite reasonable. They work very well with my insurance company. I would recommend them to anyone who needs high quality home repair."
Kate R.
"The cleanup crew did a fantastic job removing the damaged material, masking off the rooms properly to limit dust/other from other rooms, and cleaning up in preparation of repairing the areas damaged by water. They were extremely customer oriented and very professional."

"We’d like express our sincere thanks to your staff, especially our Project Manager Ron Griesel for his sincere and through professionalism and great communication skills, he is a true asset to your company. Our estimator Matt Redmond as well has our sincere thanks for his prompt responses and efforts to launch and coordinate our project as well. Thanks also to your contractors, M&M Electric, Penkala Construction, and Mark Parr Construction. We thank your P.E. Chris Oliveria for his services. A sincere thank you for restoring our home."
Jeff & Diane Heard. 
"I would recommend Lawton to any of my friends who need construction work done. They were very professional and respectful while working in the kitchen. The work was well done. The granite counter top installation was extremely well done as it was a challenging layout. Thanks very much to Dimitri for his great work on that, we love the countertops! Thanks to all the team who worked on the project. Great job from beginning to end."

"We worked with Lawton on a garage fire restoration.  I have to say the garage is beautiful – and that’s usually hard to say about a garage.  They worked hard for us with the insurance company and went the extra mile to make sure that all damage was covered.  As glad as I am to have the job finished – the crew became more like friends and I will miss them.  Good job guys!"
Linda S.
"We had water damage in our vacation home. Our insurance company had Lawton contact us. Within hours Lawton had sent a team up to us to remove carpeting and to stop the mold and further damage. I was very pleased at how seamless the whole process was between the insurance co. , Lawton and us. Everyone we came into contact with were very likeable and willing to do whatever it would take to make us satisfied. We have our home back and it’s as good as ever. Thanks to all at Lawton."

A house fire is something that we would never like happening to us. However, sometimes we can’t control the circumstances, and a mishap, accident or just plain bad luck can result in a fiery disaster. 

If that’s the case, you’ll want to have a fire damage assessment done after the facts to properly evaluate the condition your house was left in. If you’d like to know what goes into an assessment, this post can be a general guide on the subject.

What to Inspect in a Fire Damage Assessment 

On the Surface

These are the evaluations that can be done by simply taking a look around the premises after the fire:

Belongings
It’s important to know how much damage your belongings endured during the fire, and what could be saved or needs to be thrown away. It’s especially crucial to verify that any electronic devices still work as desired after the fire.

Appearance 
Needless to say, it’s very possible that your home’s appearance suffered from the fire. The flames or smoke could have damaged its paint job, its flooring, walls, and even your outside area.

On the Inside

These assessments refer to the ones that need to be looked into a bit deeper, and usually requires the help of experts:

Structure
This is what holds your home up, so saying that it is necessary to verify that it’s solid and safe is an understatement. The walls, roof, basement, and the whole foundation need to be strong after the fire in order for you to re-enter your home.

Pipes and Electrical System
Within your home, there’s a whole system of water and gas pipes, and electrical installations that need to be in perfect condition in order to work properly and safely. These could’ve also been damaged in the fire, so be sure to have them inspected.
