Reconstruction FAQ

How long will the reconstruction project take?

Since there are so many variables involved, it’s difficult to effectively estimate the reconstruction process. Please consult with your Lifetime Quality Restoration & Construction Restoration Project Manager on the estimated dates and phases of your project.

What does pre-loss condition mean?

Lifetime Quality Restoration & Construction is responsible for returning your home to how it was before damage occurred, or its pre-loss condition. We use materials of like kind and quality. In some cases, there may be damage that occurred prior to your loss. Therefore, these damages have not been included in the scope of repairs.

At your request, Lifetime Quality Restoration & Construction will provide you with an estimate for any additional renovation projects, also called non-insured work.

Do I need a permit?

When required, your Lifetime Quality Restoration & Construction Project Manager will take out the appropriate permit(s) on your behalf, identifying the
Lifetime Quality Restoration & Construction as the general contractor. If applicable, permit fees are included in the estimate and may be covered by the insurance company.

What is a code or by-law upgrade?

It is an upgrade that is made when your home’s pre-loss condition no longer meets legal building codes. Your insurance company may recognize code upgrades in the estimation process. Any questions regarding code upgrades should be directed to your insurance adjuster.

Will I have to be home all the time?

No, we will do our best to make sure you may go about your daily routine. For site access, you can provide a key to your Project Manager or opt for a lock box on site.
