AM-CAT'S ACTION PLANS

Am-Cat is a Full-Service Restoration Company

When disaster strikes, you get one chance to make sure repairs are done right. The emotional state following a House Fire or Flood is devastating, overwhelming and there is a feeling of helplessness.

It is tough to be prepared for something that you never saw coming. “Where do I begin?” “Who do I call?” “What should I do?” These are common questions that our clients usually start with. That is where American Catastrophe Restoration (Am-cat Restoration) comes in to help.

We take on the burden of reconstructing your home back to its original condition, allowing you to handle your today to day operation as we rebuild you back to whole, we use the same protocol for Rebuilds and Remodels.

We created detailed Action Plans giving you a Step-By-Step understanding of the complete process in restoring your property after suffering a loss.

Regardless of the circumstances that started the Fire, Flood, or Catastrophe our professionals are trained to remediate a loss and restore the property to its original state with added city code elements that might bring extra value to your existing property in return turning a catastrophe into a blessing as quickly as possible with minimum disruption.

It’s important to have a plan.  When choosing a contractor, you must have a plan to start, and by choosing Am-Cat we offer clients action plans from start to finish on any loss derived from a coverable peril.  Once a property / building is retained, a project manager / GC elected will survey the job with the building owner and go over the scope of work before signing off on the repairs to commence.  The insurance company’s estimate is usually negotiated but not finalized depending on how the policy is written. Am-Cat professionals understand the importance of writing addendums in order to communicate properly to the insurance company when restoring the building through the provisions of the policy on the property.

There are different methods in which your insurance company can calculate the amount paid for a loss. ACV (actual cash value) & RC (Replacement cost) are two methods that need to be understood in order to process the claim with a favorable outcome. AMCAT is proficient in solving any issues related to the coverage of your policy. AMCAT will recommend a preferred vendor’s who understands how the adjustment process can impact your situation. In a catastrophic event, AMCAT’S team of vendor’s experts will work diligently to get you back in your home.

A series of actions will be performed:

Am-cat’s sister company Am-catEms will first secure the building. Temporary lighting will be put in place for safety. Immediate water extraction will be performed if the water cannot be drained. Once all standing water has been extracted, winterization will be performed on all water fixtures if weather permits; air blowers, dehumidifiers, and air scrubbers are brought in to eliminate all moisture to prevent mold vapors. When the area drying process is complete; a team meticulously and carefully removes, cleans, and stores all salvageable personal items.

Starting Phase I, the first thing to establish is the damage assessment by negotiating the cost of repairs. Our second priority is to select a mechanical engineer and or the architect that will produce the plans to be submitted to the building department. The city’s planning and building department will process the submitted plans for approval. Most cities require 2-3 weeks and at times 2-3 months to review plans before approving them. Am-Cat retains pre-certified architects in cities that offer this fast track in expediting the time element.  After reviewing the proposed plans, the city will either release them as approved and issue a permit or release them for corrections, at which point the architect will make the necessary changes and resubmit the plans for approval.

  • Damage assessment negotiation with the insurance company (2-3 months)
  • Administrative (permits and plans) (1-2 months)
  • Demolition (full tear out & clean -up) (2-4 weeks)
  • Rough carpentry (leveling floors, framing walls, installing headers for doors and windows and roofs) (2-3 weeks)

 

After the plans are approved, the superintendent will fill out the paperwork required to obtain a building permit from the city and pay the appropriate fees for the required inspections, namely, building, electrical, plumbing and HVAC, unless there’s additional work like porches, decks, garages and pick up the approved plans and permit. These are items that will be needed when inspections are called for by the city inspectors.  With the approved plans and permit, the project manager can start your project. Usually at this time, the superintendent and or GC performs his job by walking through with the owner and discusses the action plan and scheduling the start of the work to be completed based off the agreed scope of work.

WHAT TYPE OF ELECTRICAL SYSTEM DO YOU HAVE?

How is your power distributed throughout the residence

100-amp older / bulb Fuses - system

Bulb Fuses circuits in power panel / How can you tell if an old fuse is blown - Look at the fuse wire. If there is a visible gap in the wire or a dark or metallic smear inside the glass, then the fuse is blown and needs to be replaced.

100-amp limited circuits in panel - system
Limited number of amp circuits panel
The number of breakers can max out to 30-42, too, depending on the design of your 100-amp pane. However, NEC prohibits more than 42 circuits, so you can only choose between 20-42 breakers for a 100-amp panel. Breakers or circuit breakers act as a switch for cutting off power from the main electrical supply.

You can have 2 separate circuits in the same box (they can have a splice also but not needed in your case). The only concern would be the total box fill. Based on the NEC the wire fill would be calculated at 2.0 for each conductor for 14 gauge wire and 2.25 for 12 gauge wire.

Standard 100-amp - system
Standard 100 amp circuits within a Conduit system
Typical 100-amp panels have 20 circuits, meaning they can handle 20 full-sized breakers. 20/24 panels can hold 16 full-sized and 4 twin breakers (24 circuits in total). The number of breakers can max out to 30-42, too, depending on the design of your 100-amp pane.
Standard 100-amp
200-amp Solar conversion - system
solar connecvtion to power panel3
To be ready for solar your main breaker needs to be rated for at least 200 amps, in most cases. Electrical panels rated for less than 200 amps most likely will not handle the power load coming from the solar panels and could cause an electrical fire or other issues.
200-amp Solar conversion
100-amp all wire - system
power panel all wire system1
Wiring a 100 amp breaker panel requires either #4 copper wiring or #2 aluminum or copper-clad wiring, for a 100 ampere circuit, the conductors will likely be required to be 3 AWG copper or 1 AWG aluminum.

200-amp Solar & EV conversion - system

Can you use solar panels to charge electric cars. The simple answer is yes, a solar installation will charge your electric car just as it will supply energy for the rest of your home appliances. Even a small solar panel array with only 10 solar panels can provide enough power to charge your vehicle's battery.

Plywood. Plywood is considered the most popular material used for subflooring, it has been used since the 1950s and remains one of the top choices for contractors. Standard plywood works perfectly fine as a subflooring material, but the best option is ¾” tongue-and-groove plywood subflooring.

Marble flooring is very durable and is considered to be very stylish. Marble flooring is known for its superior and a royal appearance. The marble that comes with a matte finish can make your counter tops on your kitchens exceptionally beautiful. On average, a marble floor will last 25 years or more, with proper care, cleaning, and regular maintenance.

Granite - flooring

These beautiful and durable materials are some of the toughest and longest lasting flooring options that you could choose, and one of the most popular preferences is granite. While more commonly associated with countertops and backsplashes, granite still makes a perfect flooring material. Granite is also superior when it comes to use in outdoor settings, and it is more resistant to scratches than marble. Because marble is more porous and softer than granite, keep it to your rarely used, formal areas, while durable, functional granite can be used nearly anywhere in your home!

Carpet - flooring

Carpet fibers often become matted and frayed within just 3-5 years. A carpet can only be expected to last 5-15 years from installation, so if your carpet it starting to look a little beat-up then it's probably time to replace it. Areas that see the most wear and tear are usually the hallways, stairs, and living areas. The cost of carpet is generally much cheaper than the cost of laminate flooring, but laminate flooring has the advantage of being longer-lasting, easier to clean, and less likely to suffer weather damage.

Ceramic tile can crack as floors settle, and a dish or glass dropped on it is virtually guaranteed to shatter.

There is a common misperception out there that laminate is waterproof, and I believe this is since many customers mistakenly confuse vinyl and laminate flooring. If you address the overriding concern of moisture, you can install laminate flooring in the kitchen. If you want to eliminate worries about moisture, install sheet vinyl or luxury vinyl plank (LVP). In terms of appearance, LVP is a close contender with laminate, and it is 100-percent waterproof.

Vinyl flooring clearly is a better choice in high-moisture environments than laminate flooring, making it an excellent choice in bathrooms. But for whole-house installations, laminate flooring often makes sense because it offers a wide range of choices. Laminate has a thicker composition that includes wood content, which helps it to feel warmer and slightly soft. Vinyl, however, tends to be quite hard and cold to the touch, so it's generally not the best choice for main living areas and bedrooms. Many homeowners prefer the look of laminate to that of vinyl.

What type of trimming do you have boarding style that aligns your doors windows and outer walls & ceilings

Oak trim throughout
oak trim 2
Oak's features are hard, heavy, and strong, easy to work with as it turns, carves and bends well Sanding, finishing and the stability of oak wood are the reasons most woodworkers choose to work with oak. Solid oak moldings are a very popular choice for interior trim. Many design experts believe the current trend of natural wood is here to stay.

MDF trim throughout
MDF trim 2
If you are installing baseboards in great numbers and cost is an issue, then choose MDF baseboards for the cost advantage that they offer. When painting your trim work, it is recommended to use either Poplar or MDF. Both MDF and Poplar paint very evenly and are both very stable products. Some contractors prefer to work only with one or the other MDF is very strong and stable and is free from wood grain and knots. These features make it particularly useful for residential construction and home decor, where precise machining, detailed patterns, and smooth finishes are essential.
MDF
Wood (pine / other) trim throughout
pine wood trim
Softwoods such as fir or pine are regularly used for paint grade trim and moldings since it is generally less expensive and easy to work with. Hemlock, oak, pine, poplar, and maple are popular solid wood baseboards for staining. Although MDF is stronger, it is more difficult to repair if dents or marks are made on the material. Finger jointed pine is slightly more expensive than MDF. As it is a natural timber material, it is softer than MDF and can be more susceptible to marks. Interim ran a test to show the effect of moisture on MDF.

You can have white baseboards with oak trim a mix of wood and white trim in the same house (or, even, in the same room)! Mixing painted and stained trim is completely doable if you keep these tips in mind. all baseboard in a room is the same color, all crown in a room the same color, window casings must match the crown molding or the baseboards or the other windows in the room. If you want windows to feel bigger, choose a low contrast trim color. If you want to highlight windows, choose a high contrast trim color if there is a door, you can finish it in one color to the stop in the door frame and another color past that point if a cased opening does not contain a door (i.e. a pass-through), paint it all or stain it all based on which is most visually appealing

WHAT TYPE OF COUNTERTOP DO YOU HAVE?

The most prominent kitchen countertop trends for 2021 include quartz counters resembling marble. The grey, white, and other lighter colored variants have been trendy.

Quartz countertops
COUNTERTOP1
Quartz is one of the most desirable high-end countertop materials available. That's saying a lot considering the quality of many other countertop material competitors. Also called engineered stone countertops, their popularity is due, in no small part, to their stylish beauty and ease of ownership.
Quartz
Formica countertop
COUNTERTOP20
Particleboard and plywood can both be used under laminate countertops, but the majority of builders use particleboard. It is easier to work with and cheaper. The edges are square and consistent, while plywood can have hollow spots or rough edges. today's laminates are of considerably better quality than the classic Formica countertops of the 1960s. While they still may not have the prestige of quartz, natural stone, or composite materials, these latest high-pressure laminates (HPLs) are by no means inferior countertop materials.
formica
Granite countertop
COUNTERTOP9
Granite is the most popular countertop material among homebuyers, and it can boost your home's value while helping you recover some of the installation cost. Installing countertops made of granite or another type of natural stone can potentially increase your home's value by up to 25 percent of its retail value.
granite
Tile countertop
COUNTERTOP33a
Though heat-resistant and (to a point) scratch-resistant, tile countertops can also chip. Ceramic is much softer than natural stone, you can apply ceramic or porcelain tile directly on top of the laminate. In fact, a laminate countertop in good condition is nearly the ideal surface for tiling: flat, smooth, and level. porcelain is harder, denser, tougher, and less porous than ceramic tile. It also has a very low absorption rate, meaning it's virtually impervious to water damage, even after prolonged exposure.
countertop
Marble countertop
COUNTERTOP7
Marble is heat-resistant — which is great — but you still need to be careful. If you're baking in the middle of a heat wave, you can rely on marble countertops to stay as icy as central air. The stone is also heat-resistant, making it a good option if your kitchen sees a lot of bake-offs Hardness and longevity: Granite is comparatively harder and stronger than marble. It is mostly known as the most durable natural stone and compared to marble. It is resistant to heat and can easily withstand hot cookware therefore it is perfect for kitchen tops.

HOW IS YOUR BUILDING CONSTRUCTED?

Style of construction

Brick Building
brick building
How the building is constructed together A brick is a type of block used to build walls, pavements and other elements in masonry construction. Properly, the term brick denotes a block composed of dried clay but is now also used informally to denote other chemically cured construction blocks.
Brick
Frame Building
frame building
How the building is constructed together A house has a skeleton that gives it support, shape, and a framework for outer coverings. This structure is called the frame. Though some new homes utilize steel framing, most houses built since the 1920s are made out of wooden beams, floor joists, wall studs, roof rafters, and related components.
Frame
Mix brick and frame / metal building
mix brick frame
How the building is constructed together Bricks can be installed on any structure -- even a metal building. Once the metal substrate is clean your two options for installing stone veneer are to either tack weld a wire lathe to the steel and then build out that layer with thick bed mortar mix, which will set and then the stone veneer can be applied to using a traditional cementitious based thinnest.

How the building is constructed together Steel buildings are cheaper to build than a brick building. Masonry buildings are very labor intensive as they require laying brick or concrete blocks manually. Steel buildings can be framed with wood or steel columns with exterior steel paneling that can be installed very quickly.

WHAT SOUCRE OF ENERGY/POWER IS DISTRIBUTING THE RESIDENCE HEATING SYSTEM

What source of power do you Heat your residence with

Gas
gas line3
In reference to the kind or type of gas used in homes, the gas used in gas bottles is almost always LPG. So, kind or type of gas used in homes is either propane, butane or a mixture of the two. The other type of gas used in homes is natural gas (mains gas) or CNG, both of which are methane. You can remove the access panel of your heater from the side of it and look for the pilot light. If you see a pilot light presence in the heater, then you have a gas heater in your house. Electric heaters do not come up with such lights.
gas power
Electrical
power electrical source1
In North America, most appliances use 120 volts, that is why most wall receptacles in homes, offices and public places will be wired with one hot wire and the neutral. These systems are known as single-phase, two wire systems (1-ph, 2w). When you plug things into the outlet in your house, you don't get DC. Household outlets are AC - Alternating Current. This current has a frequency of 60 Hz and would look something like this (if you plotted current as a function of time). today, a newly installed kitchen with standard appliances requires at least seven circuits and often more. Kitchens must have at least two 20-amp 120-volt "small appliance" circuits serving the receptacles in the countertop areas.

Oil
oil in home system
Oil-fired heating systems distribute heat in one of three ways: warm air through vents, hot water through baseboards, or steam through radiators. Your thermostat senses that the room temperature has fallen below your thermostat setting and sends a signal to your heating system to provide heat for your home. Furnace Systems: Instead of using water to heat your home, a furnace uses hot air. Oil is burned instead of natural gas, and the resulting hot air is distributed throughout your home via your duct system. This is the more popular of the two oil heating systems.
