Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What do you mean when you say you offer “turn-key” restoration/ reconstruction services?

A: Most restoration and reconstruction companies do not offer both services. Therefore, two separate companies become involved in the restoration and reconstruction process. This can elevate the chances of scheduling delays, communication mishaps and even finger pointing and an unwillingness to accept responsibility if a problems arises. Consolidated Construction Services boasts full in-house staff of both restoration and reconstruction professionals. We have the capability to handle the entire project from start to finish.

This is the most widely used pricing program by insurance adjusters. What this means to you is that our prices are no surprise to the insurance companies who will pay the bill.

Q: Who is responsible for paying for the service?

A: Ultimately you, the property owner, are responsible for payment. As the property owner you will need to sign a form authorizing the work and payment.

If you have a large loss, your mortgage company may be included as a payee on the check from your insurance company, and you may need to obtain a signature from them as well. If your claim is not covered, or you decide not to file a claim, you will be expected to pay in full at the time of service.
