Complete Home Rebuild After a Fire

East Palo Alto, CA
Kennedy N.

A major fire in this 1200 square foot house was so extensive it required gutting the entire home including; rewiring, new plumbing, new heating, replacing the roof, windows and flooring. Additionally the bathroom, kitchen and even the garage had to be fully rebuilt.

The initial offer from the insurance company was about $100,000. Ultimately the carrier paid almost $300,000 and, typical of Leonard Nordeman’s efforts, the owner was absolutely delighted with not only the project but the method in which the project was handled. The efforts made by Leonard to prepare the bid and cost documents to get a fair settlement were not lost on the owner. He realized that the extra work it took Leonard to put these documents together ultimately lead to the insurance carrier paying for the damages that were actually caused by the fire as well as the true value.

The upgrades on this project included a new higher quality roof, higher quality cabinets, granite counter tops, new 90% efficient furnace as well as all new wiring, insulation, drywall etc.

The owner also chose to install beautiful new French doors going out to the rear patio with gorgeous side lights which he now enjoys as looks out over his backyard.

This client is absolutely delighted with Leonard Nordeman and his team’s work.
