Water damage can compromise construction materials and structural elements, making it necessary to repair and replace to make it “Even Better Than Before.”
Water damage to New Haven structures can spread quickly throughout the property and affect the bulk of structural elements and building materials. The longer that water sits against these elements, the more likely the need for removal and replacement. As a leading reconstruction team in the state, we can help to assess the conditions of many areas susceptible to irreparable damages or in need of repair/replacement after water property loss emergencies. These areas of focus include:
- Hardwood Floors
- Ceiling Systems
Load-bearing walls can pose the most substantial threats to repairs and water damage reconstruction in New Haven homes. Prolonged exposure to the wood constructs requires that these wall systems get replaced entirely. To accomplish this, bracing the second floor of your home or its roof with temporary jack stands prevents secondary damages from the flex of the house without a solid base. Our experienced contractors then work around these implements to reinstall the framework before the temporary supports get removed.
After the Framing Gets Replaced, What Else Must Happen?
Replacing the damaged wood framing is only part of reconstructing the entire wall system after water emergencies. Insulation must get re-installed along with any utilities that were temporarily removed or relocated for demolition. These steps must occur before the wall can get covered on the outside with new drywall material and covered/painted to match the rest of the room of the house.
Reconstruction of wall systems and other structural elements compromised by water emergencies must occur to return a property to a pre-loss condition.
