Our Accidental Damage Process
Example Of A Low Speed Vehicle Impact Repair
Low Speed Vehicle Impact
This home was accidentally damaged by a vehicle that hit the wall at a low speed. At first sight, it may not look like much damage. However, the entire wall needed to be replaced, and it required a great deal of interior work as well.
All the bricks on this wall were removed. The drywall inside was torn down, as it was literally split from the adjacent walls and the ceiling. The stud wall was inspected to ensure structural integrity was intact. The window was replaced due to frame damage.
Accidental Damage: Restored
With a brand new exterior wall, window, and refinished interior, this project was completed. When CONSTRUCTEAM was finished, this home was looking as good as new.

I Felt Well Informed
"They quickly identified the source of the leak... They also coordinated with my insurance company to ensure that I would be covered for all costs. There really wasn't much for me to do... I will be hiring Constructeam in the future for any insurance or home improvement job I need done."
"I hired Constructeam after I learned of a waste water leak in a rental unit of mine. I felt well informed as to what I could expect and how the process worked. They identified the extent of the mold damage which was much less than first thought. They sealed off the area then thoroughly cleaned out all mold.
Afterwards they quickly identified the cause of the leak and within 1 day had the broken pipe replaced with minimal cost to me. They also coordinated with my insurance company to ensure that I would be covered for all costs. There really wasn't much for me to do.
The next step was reconstruction of the back bedroom and closet. I was truly surprised by the job they did. The building is a little older and doesn't have baseboards on the floor or casings around the closet. Not only did they make and install new baseboards but also made and installed new casing which made the area look much better than before the incident.
Finally, after the reconstruction I went by to check things out and there seemed to be some drywall compound on the walkway to the front door. Nothing outrageous and I just figured it would be cleaned up when finished. When the team manager arrived that was the first thing he noticed and immediately rolled up his sleeves and began cleaning it on his own. Afterwards he apologized to me profusely. I told him that I didn't think it was a big deal and that it was just a consequence of the work. He then told me that although it may not be a big deal to me, it was unacceptable to him and his company.
He went on to further explain that when I hire Constructeam I can rest assured that I will be receiving the most professional, timely experience and for a very fair price. There is no doubt in my mind that the people at Constructeam are very passionate about what they do and are experts in their field.
I will be hiring Constructeam in the future for any insurance or home improvement job I need done."

My Home Suffered Accidental Damage. Now What?
The old saying, “Anything can happen” is a very true statement. No matter how unusual and strange anything can happen to your home or business at any time of day or night. However, depending on your insurance policy it may or may not cover it. An auto colliding with a building, a fallen tree limb, falling asleep while cooking, falling asleep while smoking, kids playing with matches, vandalism, mold, overfilling a bathtub or any other type of damage typically is considered sudden and accidental.
No matter how unusual the accident, CONSTRUCTEAM will work with your insurance company to complete your restoration using the full extent of your coverage. If you do not have coverage, CONSTRUCTEAM will present the best and most efficient way to rectify your problem.
How To Deal With Accidental Damage To Your Home or Business
- If it is a fire go to our Fire Damage page.
- If it is storm damage go to our Storm Damage page.
- If it is water damage go to our Water Damage page.
- If a car collided with your building or home, contact 911 and have EMS or a firefighter assess the situation. You will need to get the contact information of the person who collided with your home or business. In most situations you will need to get the insurance information of this person because this will be covered under their car insurance.
Hire a restoration company – A work authorization will need to be signed no matter the insurance loss.
Make a claim – If you have a relationship with your insurance agent contact them first if during business hours. If no relationship exists or after hours call the 800 number from your insurance policy and make a claim to obtain a claim number. All of the listed damage above follows the same procedure as all the rest.
Insurance adjuster will be assigned to your water loss within 24hrs to 48 hrs. of making a claim – depending on the size of the loss you may meet multiple insurance adjusters in the process. Typically you will have an adjuster for the structure, another for contents, and another for loss of business. Many insurance companies may invite a contractor they have used in the past if you do not have a company secured. It is YOUR CHOICE who you decide to handle your contents or rebuild of your home or business.
Adjuster will be assigned within 24 to 48 hrs. to meet you on site.
Once the scope of work is determined each estimate will be reviewed and agreed upon with the owner, contractor and the adjuster and work will then commence.
There are many things to consider and many more steps to the process at this point. Hiring the right company can make this difficult situation a smooth and seamless process with no hassles.
