Comprehensive Fire Clean Up and Excavation

Excavation and Demolition Services

Thank you for considering partnering with CR Contracting as your fire cleanup contractor. We would be proud to be your trusted advisor throughout the cleanup process, making the daunting task of rebuilding a bit smoother. We will ensure that your project gets completed quickly and competently, and will put you square on the path to “move back home” in the shortest possible timeframe. CR Contracting has been part of this community for years and we were all devastated to see the damage caused by the fires. We are offering our services as a private alternative to the Government/FEMA cleanup that has been promised. We will be working to the same standards set forth by Boulder County, but moving more quickly. By using our own equipment and local resources to get your property to “shovel ready” condition, you won’t have to wait around on any help from the government. You can focus on rebuilding, knowing your lot will be ready when you are.

We are providing a single source solution, handling all aspects of the fire cleanup, including comprehensive project management, hazardous material mitigation, hauling, foundation removal, and much more. We have found that many insurance policies will cover most (if not all) of the cleanup costs, but we will still be quoting each project individually, ensuring you will know what to expect before we get started. Your insurance adjuster will be involved from the outset, maximizing insurance benefits. You will have a trusted, reliable, local company to work with, ensuring the best possible outcome without having to guess when the government might show up to do the work. If anyone would like to discuss how our program may work for you, please call us at 303-501-5916.
