Abstract: ▪ Assessment of fire damages to structures follows a similar general process as appraisal of existing structures.
▪ It is possible to restore a fire damaged structure to its original load carrying capacity.
▪ In making a decision about repairing a fire damaged building, considerations should be given to aesthetic appearance, the reliability of repairs, the views of insurance company and the client, in addition to technical feasibility.
