Project Management Experts

At Jim Black Construction, you are assigned your own personal project manager (PM), who wears many hats to make sure you have proper, educated guidance. Rebuilding a home or office involves much more than just the sequence of construction. For example, your PM will give you samples of your finishes in a coordinated, chronological order so you can follow the process and not feel overwhelmed. The PM’s job is to make sure you have good, quality information for all your selections and finishes at the proper time and in the proper order. Jim Black Construction also has a showroom at our facility, allowing you to view samples in comfortable surroundings and take your time in the selection process. We think that having a physical sample to touch, feel, and compare next to other selections provides a better personal experience to help you make your choices.

We can take rapid action to minimize the extent of any fire or water damage before moving on to reconstruction.
Our team will be onsite as soon as possible to assess the damage and take immediate action. With state-of-the-art equipment and over 40 years of experience, we can stop fire and water damage from destroying any more of your property than it already has and limit the risk of mold and other long-term effects.

Professionally Managed Residential and Commercial Emergency Reconstruction

When you choose Jim Black Construction for your fire or water damage reconstruction, you get a team of true professionals. We assign a project manager to each job we handle, and they’ll follow you through the entire reconstruction process from start to finish.
Our Haag-certified project managers ensure continuity and clear communication during your restoration. We’ll provide you with the full details of your current situation and discuss your options for emergency reconstruction. And as the process moves forward, we’ll work with you to define the details of interior and exterior design and finish choices.
Once your water or fire damage reconstruction is underway, the project manager will be ready to answer all your questions and will keep you up-to-date on the status of the project and its timeline. The project manager also ensures that all permits and coordinations are handled to avoid any unnecessary delays to your restoration.

Ensuring that Your Property Is Safe and Liveable

Our residential reconstruction services focus on providing a safe and healthy environment for you and your family after any disaster. The first steps to your reconstruction will be removing immediate risks and taking action to prevent long-term damage.
During our initial response, we can provide a range of services to deal with water, flood, fire, and storm damage. In addition, we will carry out an emergency board-up if the integrity of your home has been compromised. This ensures that its interior structure stays safe from the elements and pests.
If water continues to affect your home, we use specialty pumps for rapid removal. From there, we have a variety of state-of-the-art drying technologies to remove as much moisture as possible, reducing the risk of long-term water damage and mold.
Our team also works to safely deal with potential contaminants and chemical hazards. Flooding and backups can introduce biological contaminants to your home, which we remove through proper disinfection and sanitization. A fire leaves toxic smoke and soot particles behind, which our team removes and deodorizes.

Choosing Your Reconstruction Options

Once the immediate risk of further damage and any potential hazards are dealt with, it’s time to talk about your reconstruction options. Depending on the extent of the damage, you may require a variety of interior and exterior repairs and replacements. The team at Jim Black Construction is made up of experts from a variety of fields to handle every detail.
During reconstruction, you’ll have a wide range of design options to choose from. Your home or business doesn’t need to be rebuilt exactly as it was. Instead, you can explore a variety of options and select styles that best suit your home today.
The project manager assigned to your emergency reconstruction will go over all your options with you to help you find the right styles for your needs. You can also visit the showroom at our facility to take a closer look at samples and experience what those choices might look like in your home before moving forward.
