Determining Home Rebuilding Costs
As a result of the wildfires that raged in central Texas during the summer of 2011, many homes were destroyed or severely damaged. There are numerous factors that affect the value of a home, and therefore the costs associated with rebuilding. As Bastrop County focuses on rebuilding, knowing these costs and which factors can change them becomes increasingly important. Unfortunately, many insurers are refusing to pay or are underpaying valid claims. This constitutes a breach of contract and should not be tolerated.

Factors Influencing Home Repair Costs
There are numerous factors that determine the value of your home. Beyond the obvious things like square footage and number of bedrooms, there are many other concerns affecting rebuilding costs. Building rates are one of the largest factors. Labor or material shortages, which are common directly after disasters of such magnitude, can cause building rates to increase. Some of the other factors that may alter the costs of replacing your home include:
- Type of exterior wall
- Style of house
- Type of roof
- Number of bathrooms
- Need for removal of hazard materials
A home’s repair costs after a fire are covered by most standard homeowner’s insurance policies. If your homeowner’s insurance company is refusing uphold its policy obligations, we can help.
