Rebuilding Your New Haven Finished Basement After Mold Damage


November 27, 2019

Finished basements are a common staple to modern construction throughout New Haven. Added living space and usable square footage increases the value of your home and can even prevent families from outgrowing a residence and requiring a larger property for new family members. Subterranean levels are not without potential concerns, however. Hydrostatic pressures from groundwater can create a moist environment for fungal and microbial threats to thrive.

Many property owners do not even recognize their need for mold damage reconstruction in New Haven residences until the situation has gotten out of control. Moisture persisting in the space between the drywall and the masonry exterior of the basement can remain perpetually damp when structural breaches exist. These conditions are a breeding ground for mold growth, and drywall is a sensitive material to allow colonization to spread quickly throughout the lower level of your home.

In widespread circumstances, our CRS professionals work with mold remediation professionals like SERVPRO to reduce the presence of microbial threats in the property. We rely on this expertise to determine where controlled demolition is necessary and what can get restored by other approaches. A controlled demolition is an efficient approach to removing damaged construction materials like drywall, carpeting, and ceiling tile that commonly get replaced after mold disasters.

Because our CRS team can respond quickly, we can do the necessary legwork to reach an agreement for our customers with the insurance companies involved. Once we have a budget, we can work directly with you to determine the replacement materials and reconstruction needs of your property. We can work to return your property to its pre-loss condition, but with our established relationship with many local vendors, we can make it “Even Better Than Before.”

Mold can be an alarming presence in your home, especially with the understood health effects that could exist from exposure. Our professionals can help with calculated, controlled demolition and reconstruction as your home needs, including the causes of the persistent moisture. No matter how we can help, our Connecticut Reconstruction Services professionals are standing by anytime at (203) 239-0040.
