Water Damage Reconstruction for Utilities is Critical
Water-damaged reconstruction for utilities is one of the most critical steps Connecticut Reconstruction Services specialists can take to get life back to normal for our clients as restoration begins. Services like water need to be recovered in the house to prevent continued damage to the structure and make clean water available for the occupants.
The Type of Damage Plumbing Experienced
The type of damage that your property experienced to spread water through the structure is vital to how we proceed with water damage reconstruction in Sheldon homes. Much like the restoration plan is a custom strategy for your house and its needs, repairs follow a similar route based on the harm done and where that breach in the plumbing occurred. Common issues leading to water damage include:
- Leak – fluctuations in pressure and aging components can lead to drips and leaks around fittings and connections.
- Wear – elements like copper lines erode and wear down over time, eventually leading to a hole or split.
- Freezing – pipes become exposed to freezing conditions that cause the liquid inside to expand as it becomes a solid, breaking the line.
Water Damage Reconstruction That Moves Forward
Much of the work our water damage reconstruction team will accomplish after water damage disasters are to prevent this damage from occurring again. While accidents are just that, there are preventative steps that can help provide peace of mind moving forward. With plumbing damage, some considerations might keep your home dry for years to come:
- Pipe Material – Certain types of pipe material are more susceptible to damage and wear than others. It is necessary to evaluate when a change in these materials may be required, mainly if multiple issues have occurred in your home’s lifetime.
- Insulation – If a frozen pipe is to blame for the water damage, it is necessary to ensure that any newly installed plumbing gets appropriately insulated against cold weather conditions.
- Aging Components – We might find through an inspection that some plumbing materials have worn down and are likely to cause the same issues you’ve already experienced. At this point, we might recommend replacing them to be on the safe side and prevent future problems.
