What is restoration?

A house fire can have devastating effects, leaving behind not only structural damage but also emotional turmoil. The aftermath often involves a complex restoration process. Beginning with assessing the extent of the damage and ensuring the property is safe to enter. Professionals then work meticulously to salvage belongings, remove soot and smoke, and repair the affected areas. This process also includes addressing water damage from firefighting efforts, eliminating odors, and preventing mold growth. Ultimately, restoration aims to return the home to a safe, livable condition, allowing families to begin the healing process and move forward from the tragedy.

The duration of the fire damage restoration process can vary greatly, depending on the extent of the damage. On average, it can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months.

Ceresco Storm Damage

Ceresco Storm Damage

The summer of 2008 was a challenging time for Ceresco and the surrounding areas of Lincoln, NE. A series of violent storms swept through the region, wreaking havoc on homes and properties. The storms were relentless, unleashing a barrage of tornadoes, strong winds, and hail that caused extensive damage to the community. 

Our company played a critical role in the recovery efforts, working tirelessly to restore around thirty homes in Ceresco and nearby areas that were damaged by the storms. Our skilled team of professionals tackled a wide range of repairs, from fixing damaged roofs and walls to replacing shattered windows. 

The restoration process was extensive, and our team was committed to ensuring that every repair was completed to the highest standards. We worked closely with homeowners to understand their needs and concerns, offering guidance and support throughout the restoration process. 

Despite the challenges, we take pride in our work and the role we played in helping the community get back on its feet. It was an honor to work with the people of Ceresco during this difficult time, and we remain committed to providing exceptional service and support whenever it is needed.

Our BK Restoration Disaster Team handled both small and large-scale projects. We replaced broken windows, damaged roofs, and missing or damaged siding. Additionally, entire sections of homes were reconstructed after being destroyed by tornadoes. We ensured that both plumbing and electrical systems were restored promptly and efficiently. Lincoln also suffered significant damage from wind, rain, and hail. Trees damaged roofs, pitted siding with hail, and rain entered homes. We were able to repair the water damage and repair much of what the damaging winds destroyed.

Natural disasters such as tornadoes, floods, and fire can wreak havoc on our homes and our lives. BK Restoration & Remodeling is ready, willing, and able to help reconstruct your home or property after the storm has passed, whether it be hail damage, fire restoration, smoke remediation, or water damage.

BK Restoration & Remodeling underwent a significant transformation in 2007 as it moved to a new location. The company had been operating from its previous office at 4535 Normal Blvd. for almost two decades, but as the company expanded, the existing 550 square feet of office space proved to be insufficient.

After careful consideration, the company decided to move its office to a new location at 8033 S. 15th St., STE D, in November of 2007. The new office space boasts an area of 1,500 square feet, more than double the size of the previous location. The larger area has allowed the company to provide each of its three general contractors with their own dedicated workspace, which was not possible in the previous office.

The new office space has been a welcome addition to the company’s growing business, providing a more comfortable and spacious environment for its employees and customers alike. The move has helped the company enhance its services and improve its operations, marking a significant milestone in its journey towards success.
