Whatever disaster you've experienced, we know you have questions. Take a look at some of our most frequently asked questions below, or contact us today to talk to a member of our team.

How fast can you get here?

Our team is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for emergency service. We can likely be at your home or commercial space within hours.

How long will it take to get things back to normal?

This depends on how extensive the water damage is and how much building and reconstruction is required. Extracting water, drying, and rebuilding damaged areas usually takes between two weeks and a month.

Will I have to leave my house or building?

This depends on the extent of the damage. If the property damage does not require extensive reconstruction, you may be able to stay in your home or building throughout the process. Keep in mind, however, that much of the equipment we use can be noisy.

Some insurance companies offer reimbursement for alternative living arrangements and business continuity expenses, so it is a good idea to check with your insurance provider about coverage.

How much is this going to cost?

This depends on the size of the flooded area and the amount of restoration work required. Your insurance policy may cover water damage, in which case you are typically only responsible for the deductible. Whether or not you are covered usually depends on your provider and the source of the damage.

Can I use my insurance?

We encourage all homeowners to reach out to their insurance company for coverage.

Will I lose my possessions?

We have extensive experience helping customers recover their damaged items.

  • I hired Efficient Buildings to do some insulation work at my house, as I had heard that attic insulation was one of the best ways to cut heating costs, and Efficient Buildings came highly recommended from a friend.

    James Chase, Bridgewater, MA
  • I wanted to tell you how great a job the installers did putting in my attic insulation. My AC has been out for a few days and the insulation has kept the temperature down. Usually a second story would be boiling, but the men did such a great job that I was able to stay here.

  • After conducting a thorough and (extremely) informative energy audit, Efficient Buildings assessed that the most cost-effective improvements I could make would be some simple air sealing and improved attic insulation -- they didn't try to sell any expensive windows or talk me into having work...
