Your Emergency - One Contractor - Licensed # 967451
Silverolas is a fully licensed contactor, insured and bonded .The same family owned, personal, and friendly team that you chose to handle your emergency water damage, will also be the team that can completely restore your home and bring your life back to normal.
This is a critical differentiation between Silver olas and others because you will have the confidence from the first day that we are not only handling the critical emergency, but that we are also being fully mindful of the work that will need to be completed after the emergency has passed.
This ability to hire a single contractor from start to finish allows the homeowner to not only save money, but also to understand the full scope of their situation prior to commencing work. No longer will the homeowner need to have one team cure the emergency and another do the restoration.
This is important because when water damage occurs, the entire home is at risk and all parts of the home that are in the damaged area are impacted first. Therefore no matter how fast the source of the water is stopped and the initial emergency process begins, many parts of the home are affected.
For example, consider an overflowing toilet. The water damages the flooring, the walls, the vanity, and possibly other areas. A typical unlicensed emergency flood team can remove these items as part of the emergency and/or work around them, but after the emergency has passed, it requires a fully licensed contractor to replace or repair the areas and items removed.
When a water damage emergency to reaches beyond the flooring of a home and touches the walls, water can seep under the walls and soak into the insulation behind the wall. Therefore it may be necessary to expose those areas by cutting away drywall, and at times removing the wet insulation, in order to ensure the entire area is dried as quickly as possibly before mold begins to grow.
This type of work can be performed by the emergency crew and does not require a contractors license. But the reason you want to hire a fully licensed contractor, like Silverolas, is because our specialized and experienced team knows precisely how to mitigate further repairs by handling the emergency situation in such a way that it makes it easier to make the subsequent repairs.
Our Family business is made up of a team that works together both in the emergency and after to ensure that any wall cut aways, cabinetry removal, or flooring removal is completed in a way that will create a minimal of cost on replacement.
The Silver olas team is trained with the most advanced techniques in handling all types of emergencies and beyond that they bring the professionalism and time tested experience to their restoration and repair. We have even been able to save wet wood floors or wet cabinets ,and match older wood floors when we can find the proper materials. We have the specialized water damage experience to go beyond that of a traditional contractor, because we have the experience to know when and how to repair a damaged area or match an existing "look", whereas the typical contractor is likely to insist on total replacement without thought to the previous "look" or cost.
With Silverolas you have the same family owned friendly team to assist you in the emergency and with our full contractor license that same team will be able to perform all activities that require a contractor's license after the emergency. Therefore carpet repair or replacement, cleaning wood, repairing or replacing laminate, drywall repair, matching drywall texture, painting, and cabinet repair or replacement will be under the watchful eye of a responsible and accountable licensed contractor both before and after the emergency. This should be comforting to any homeowner, knowing that the same person that is removing and moving drywall, flooring, or cabinetry is the same person that will be responsible for replacement.
This type of accountability is another critical differentiation between Silverolas and others. All too often, in emergencies, a homeowner selects a company that is not respectful of other tradespersons when they are doing there work. What this means is there are professional and proper ways to remove drywall, flooring, or vanities and then there are quick ways to do these tasks.
With a single contractor in charge of the emergency as well as restoration, that single individual is responsible for the manner in which items were removed and handled because they will also be responsible for replacement and repair. Without that single point of accountability it is common for a contractor to come in after an emergency and charge extra because the emergency team, with whom they are not affiliated, did not do their job in a way that made the repair and replacement easier.
With Silverolas this has never been a problem, with our contractor's license and single point of accountability, you can know and have the added assurance that all emergency work will be completed in the most professional and respectful way to the team that will be doing the work after emergency restoration.
The final note about having Silver olas as a licensed contractor to handle both your emergency and restoration. Beyond the single point of accountability is the intrinsic responsibility and recourse a homeowner has with a company that is under the regulation of the Contractor's License Board of California. Not only does the board require a bond but they also act as a advocate and arbitrator in the rare instance of a dispute.
We know this will never be an issue with Silverolas, but for peace of mind and in the heat of decision making for a water emergency, it is better for a homeowner to choose a licensed and accountable contractor for any work over a company that is not licensed. Once you know meet and know us, you will understand that the professionalism, the accountability, and our personal friendly family owned service was and is the right choice.
