Solid walnut doors blew off their hinges and tore through a painting that hung in the foyer. A grandfather clock flew across the room. Many of the belongings that the couple collected over the course of their lives were scattered on the floor.
“We worked so hard to put our home together,” said Ron. “Seeing all of that destroyed was very emotional.”
“We were devastated,” continued Ron. “But after speaking to our claims adjuster, we felt confident that PURE was going to be there for us.”
When one of our members suffers a loss, it often takes the most talented artisans and engineers, as well as special materials, to restore their exceptional homes and the rare, often one-of-a-kind objects they keep. Putting the Berlins’ custom home back in order meant temporarily reopening a quarry to source Travertine marble to match the original patio that was destroyed. Their Italian clay tile roof would need replacing. Several pieces of their 18th and 19th century European art collection required restoration services coordinated by PURE’s fine art specialists. One painting, Frederick Morgan’s Father’s Return, was beyond repair, and the Berlins were fully compensated for their loss.
