Charred Roof Rafters in a Jericho Attic

The structural damage to the lumber in this Jericho home following a house fire was not significant. It looks damaging in the Before Photo, but the depth of the charring was less than 1/4". SERVPRO can follow protocol and use a technique called "ice-blasting" to scrape off the burned surface and gain the look of almost new wood as depicted in the After Photo. Our advanced equipment did not require pressure washing. Why introduce more moisture into this area after the flames have already been extinguished with water sprays? We have the products and gear also to eliminate the foul-smelling odors left behind. We take pride in helping our neighbors in their time of stress with a professional, comprehensive, and empathetic service. Call us 24/7 for help.
