How To Rebuild Your Sonoma County Home After a Wildfire

In the wake of a natural disaster like a wildfire, starting a rebuilding effort can be an overwhelming endeavor for anyone. Our goal at DRF Builders is to make the rebuild process as simple and accessible as possible for Sonoma County homeowners.

Our work rebuilding many Coffee Park homes after the Tubbs fire in 2017 has shown us exactly how important working together to rebuild communities efficiently and resourcefully truly is.

How Our Design-Build Firm Helps You Rebuild Your Home After a Wildfire

The guide below is designed to provide you with a straightforward, step-by-step plan to rebuild your home after a wildfire.

1. DRF Builders Inspects Fire-Damaged Homes and Provides Accurate Estimates

The first step in rebuilding after a wildfire is conducting a thorough inspection of your property. Our team will carefully review the damage and remaining debris that will need to be cleared away. This will allow us to put together a detailed estimate of the work that will need to be done to complete your rebuild. 

This crucial step will also allow us to provide you with a project outline, to help us work together to create an appropriate management plan that includes a timeline and budget.

2. DRF Builders Offers Professional Clean-Up Services After a Wildfire

Another essential step to preparing for a home rebuild after a wildfire is preparing the site. Wildfires can leave behind potentially harmful substances that will make your property unsafe until properly attended to. We will ensure that the entire site is professionally cleaned and all potentially hazardous or toxic materials are cleared away and disposed of properly.  

3. We Will Coordinate with Your Insurance Company Before Rebuilding

At DRF Builders, we aim to make your dream home a reality and help ensure the process is as smooth as possible. That is why we take on the task of working with your insurance companies to get the project underway. 

Before starting your home rebuild, we will coordinate all of the insurance claims and work on your behalf to get your claim approved. 

4. Design Your New Home with DRF Builders After a Wildfire

 One of the many benefits of working with a design-build firm like DRF Builders is that we handle every phase of your rebuild project in-house, including designing it to your specifications. Our expert team of designers will work alongside you to bring your new home to life.

5. We Will Handle Any Permitting Necessary for Your Rebuild

After your new home design has been finalized and approved, our team at DRF Builders will take full responsibility of the permitting process. We will coordinate with the city and county departments to approve all of the required building permits and inspections throughout the entire construction phase. 

6. Let DRF Builders Construct Your New Home After a Wildfire

During the entire construction phase of your home rebuild, you will have a direct line of communication with the project manager. You will receive regular updates about the progress of the project and will never have to question who you need to call, or the next step to take.

Our goal is to get you settled into your new home as soon as possible. Our team wants to ensure your confidence that your home is built to the highest quality standards, while also remaining on time and on budget.
