Rebuilding Wall Systems After Pipe Bursts in Waterbury Homes

Water disasters can be destructive to Waterbury homes, destroying exposed porous materials like drywall, insulation, and other building elements. While restoration can help protect more lightly exposed materials, our building trade professionals are often dispatched to help these technicians with controlled demolition, repairs, and the need to reconstruct damaged areas of the house to make it “Even Better Than Before.” 

The water damage reconstruction in Waterbury homes often involves wall systems and flooring. While pooling water can collect on specific flooring materials, quick drying practices can often protect these elements. Wall systems are another matter. Because of the porosity of drywall and wood framing, when pipes burst within wall cavities, our Connecticut Reconstruction Services team must often remove overexposed materials to provide a clean and solid foundation for reconstruction.

  • Plumbing – After a pipe burst, many homeowners consider the value in replacing either the full plumbing network or portions of this utility with more durable materials that are less susceptible to bursting or leaks. Our professionals can remove fixtures and pipes and replace them with rugged PEX tubing and new connectors.  
  • Framing – Overexposure to wood framing can not only promote microbial threats but can deteriorate these structural supports. With the demolition of wall systems, wood framing is often unable to remain installed. With the clean floor to attach footer boards to, we can begin rebuilding this framework as it was removed or to a new specification from our customer. 
  • Drywall – Drywall is often one of the most commonly replaced building materials after a fire or water loss. Because the material is cheap, we can quickly discard any exposed sheetrock and install new panels, finish it, and paint the surface often in a matter of days. 

While you cannot anticipate when pipes might freeze and burst within your walls, you can expect some degree of repair and reconstruction after these events occur. Our Connecticut Reconstruction Services team can help you to efficiently recover from these disasters with experience and craftsmanship. Give us a call anytime that you need us at (203) 239-0040.
