Fire & Smoke Damage

One of the most devastating events that can happen to a family or business is a fire. Rooms are ruined, possessions are lost, and a sense of “What do I do now?” sets in a person’s mind.

Allow Grey Built Contracting the honor of being your sense of hope. We specialize in fire damage repair – with over 35 years of combined experience in the insurance and construction industry, we understand that our customers have just been through a very difficult experience. Our specialty is restoring your damaged space to a haven you can call home again.

Fire Restoration – With our top notch construction crew, Grey Built Contracting is ready to tackle any structural fire damage. Whether the fire or smoke damage was limited to a small portion of the residence or a full renovation is needed, let the contractors at Grey Built take care of everything for you.

24-Hour Board Up and Securement – The first step after a fire has damaged your property is to secure that property from further damage. Often fire damage accompanies water, which needs to be addressed immediately to prevent further problems. Grey Built Contracting responds to your call 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. We’ll be there in no time to make sure your property is secure and will not be further damaged from water or breeches in security.

Smoke Damage Removal – Discoloration of walls, corrosion of material, and – worst of all – odor, all accompany fire damage. Smoke can cover an entire home in less than three minutes. It is one of the most difficult after effects to remove short term and can be the worst for you long term. Because of this, it is the most important aftermath to treat. Smoke contains toxic chemicals that can be dangerous to your health. Also, the soot that attached to the walls becomes more difficult to remove over time.


Grey Built Contracting uses a combination of cleaning treatments, ozone, and unsmoke agents to permanently remove smoke odors and stains.

New Home Construction

At Grey Built Contracting, we have built many custom homes over the years. If your home was destroyed by fire or a natural disaster, we can rebuild your home from the ground up. Or, maybe it’s time to build your dream home to your exact specifications – Grey Built Contracting can make that dream home a reality.

Water Damage and Removal

Water is the leading cause of property loss in Canada. Water is everywhere – in our pipes, in the ground around our property, in our drains, flowing off the roof—and it is highly likely that your property will sustain damage from water at some point. Most claims of damage from water begin with a small leak.

If left untreated, that small leak could turn into a big problem when it comes to your health and personal property. Let the experts at Grey Built Contracting handle your problem day or night. With our employees available 24/7, we are always ready to take care of your water repair needs.

Mold Damage – When it comes to restoration, you don’t want to take any chances. Any area that sustains damage from water and is not completely dry within 72 hours is likely to grow mold. It can grow within 24 to 48 hours and can colonize in under 12 days. The presence of mold can not only devalue your home or damage your property, but it can cause major health problems. While it may seem like a common cold, mold can become fatal for individuals with weak immune systems or those who are already in poor medical condition. In the end, not doing anything about water in your home is more expensive that remediating the damage in a timely manner.

When damage happens, it may seem like the end of the world, but it isn’t! Fortunately, something can be done. Grey Built Contracting has extensive experience with water – you’d be amazed at what we can do! The most important thing is to get help immediately as the longer the water sits, the more damage it will cause. We’re standing by for your call 24 hours a day.

Steps To Restoring Property After Damage From Water

Here’s our formula for remediating damage from water in your home or business.

  • When you call Grey Built Contracting, we rush to the scene of the damage immediately no matter what the time of day or night. That way we can contain the damage as much as possible.
  • Once we arrive, the first step is to find the source of the water and make sure that no more water is leaking or seeping in.
  • Once we’ve stopped the flow, we extract out the water as quickly as possible using commercial grade extractors. We also clean away silt and sterilize grey or black water damaged areas (i.e. sewage).
  • We then begin drying the area immediately to prevent mold growth. We set up commercial fans and large dehumidifiers to dry the area as quickly as possible.
  • Once everything is dry we use thermal detectors to determine what needs to be restored and what is okay the way it is. Often dry wall and carpeting cannot be salvaged if it remained wet for too long.
  • After removing damaged items, we restore your home to its original condition – rebuilding walls and ceilings, restoring flooring, structural damage and repainting.

Weather Damage Repair

One perk of living in the Canada is our weather! In the summer months, if you don’t like the weather, wait ten minutes and it will change. With winds that can send a tree into your living room, hail that can cause extreme roof damage, and rain that will turn your front yard into a lake, how can a Canadian rest easy?

The storm damage professionals at Grey Built Contracting are waiting 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to assist you when nature takes a turn for the worst. 

Our first step is to ensure your property is secured and then assess the damage. We work with Canadian insurance providers frequently, and we will find the optimal home restoration guidelines that work best for you.

Securing Your Home After Storm Damage – You should not have to worry about security after being a victim of storm damage. Give us a call after the storm hits and our general contractors will secure any opening that was not there prior. From tarps to two by fours, we will make sure no further damage occurs to your home or business. We also conduct tree and debris removal and general repairs.

Did the storm also knock out your power? No problem. You can use our generator until the lights come back on or the insurance adjuster arrives.

Roof Damage – If you believe your roof has been damaged by wind or hail, it’s best to have a professional at Grey Built Contracting take a look. If assessed as storm damage, your homeowners’ insurance may cover the cost of the roofing repairs or replacement. If you have suffered severe damage to your roof and require tarping or board up, Grey Built Contracting is available 24/7 for our disaster restoration services.
