Fire & Flood Reinstatement

One of Harris Associates core services is fire and flood reinstatement. We work on behalf of freeholders and landlords and in close harmony with the insurance companies and appointed loss adjusters.

We have over the years built a reputation for calm heads and efficient administration. Whether a property has been fire damaged or flood damaged, the key to successful reinstatement projects is to proceed methodically, albeit with steady speed.

We place great emphasis in working closely with all parties and communicating the how, the what, the why and the when. With both fire and flood reinstatement projects, our involvement requires our teams to commit to higher-than-normal frequencies of on-site management and direction.
