Large Loss Restoration

Responding to a large loss situation requires specialized preparation and training on the part of the restoration contractor. CPR is ready and trained to handle catastrophic damage to commercial, industrial, and residential properties throughout Wisconsin.

Large loss situations are very different from 'normal' restoration projects. For example, a factory that uses heavy machinery suffers a fire in their office, which moderately damages machinery on the floor. In this case, the focus is on getting the machines up and running quickly to fulfill orders. At the same time, bringing in portable office space, telephone capabilities and utilities so that the outside world experiences little disruption in contacting the business.

This is a unique field which requires a broad spectrum of knowledge that is simply outside the understanding of most restorer's realm of competency. You need to hire an experienced large loss restoration company. Ask for referrals from past large loss projects. CPR is proud to share our experience with large losses. Below is a list some of the large loss projects we have worked on.
