    Condo Remediation and Rehab After Fire

    Condo Remediation and Rehab After Fire

    Smyth recently completed a condo remediation and rehab job after a fire. This unit was damage by fire and how to be totally gutted. Smyth Property Management, LLC was hired to do all repairs. We worked with the insurance adjuster to make sure all needed repairs were included. When we all agreed on the repairs needed our architect prepared a full set of construction documents including, electrical, heating and air conditioning, and plumbing.

    Once this was completed we were able to submit for permits from the township.

    The scope of work for this project included 50% rewire of the entire unit, new electric baseboard, insulation, drywall, new kitchen, kitchen applianaces, flooring windows, doors, trim, bathroom fixtures, and upgraded led recessed lights.

    When getting involved in repairing older projects like this one of the issues you run into is how the new building codes affect the existing conditions. We worked closely with the local township construction department to identify all the issues a head of time to make the project run smoothly.

    Throughout the condo remediation project we worked with the owner in coming up with color schemes, kitchen layout, cabinet and counter top choices, flooring options. This owner elected to leave the kitchen flooring which presented a problem where there was a wall removed. We could not located this floor tile to properly patch the floor. We were able to very carefully remove some tile in the area of the kitchen cabinets and use that to patch floors.

    Oxford Village Condominums in Egg Harbor Township

    Smyth recently completed repairs at Oxford Village Condominums in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey after a vehicle collided with one of the units there. We were called to this unit over the weekend after a car had jumped the curb and ran through the front wall. As you can see there has been extensive damage to wall affecting the structurally stability of the unit above. Luckily, no one was in the room at the time of the accident or things could have been much worse.

    The first order of business at Oxford Village Condominums was to shore up the 2nd floor unit and have it inspected by the construction official. This was completed and inspected immediately allowing the 2nd floor tenant to move back in the next day.

    After this was competed we made a full evaluation of repairs needed and worked with our architect in preparing a set of construction documents to be submitted for permits. It was determined that the front brick façade would need to be removed all the way over to the doorway, 75% of the exterior wall framing would need to be replaced. The 2nd floor was jacked up approximately 2 inches. New drywall, insulation, trim and flooring was installed. Both front rooms were painted and we also repainted at our expense the entire hallway for the tenant.

    Oxford Village Condominums in Egg Harbor TownshipDust protection in the unit was very important as the tenant moved their belonging into the living and dining room areas. We erected temporary dust protect to keep all the belonging and the other rooms free of construction dust.

    Smyth Property Management worked closely with the tenants of Oxford Village Condominums in choosing flooring options and paint colors. We also worked with the condo association in matching the brick veneer.

    Once the insurance settlement was agreed to the work was completed in 3 weeks and tenant were back in there unit.
