What Are Common Post-Water Loss Construction Needs for New Haven Homes?

Water losses, especially those that allow standing surface water to remain exposed to structural elements for several days, can be a destructive force in your New Haven home. Reconstruction after restoration involves many intricate processes that many homeowners might not consider or realize.

Water damage reconstruction in New Haven homes often involves the reinstallation of flooring, wall, and ceiling materials. Because many of these surface materials are part of more significant systems encompassing multiple layers of structural elements, controlled demolition and discarding materials often affect more than just the portions that you can see on the surface. Some of the points where absorption can have devastating effects that require reconstruction include:

  • Drywall
  • Wood Framing
  • Ceiling Tiles
  • Insulation
  • Wood Flooring
  • Carpet

Partial Reinstallation 

With controlled demolition, we can save time and material costs by only removing the affected areas of flooring or wall surfaces. A vital element of this process is matching existing materials with the newly installed portions. When we can match the old and the new seamlessly, we can provide a full-scale revitalization of the affected areas of the house without the total cost of reconstruction or the expenses of demolishing entire floor systems and reinstalling with all new components instead.

Full-Scale Reconstruction 

In some situations, full demolition is inevitable. Between the discarding of wall materials or flooring surface materials, we can also remove areas like wall insulation and wood framing. Reconstructing your house begins with stripping carpet and wood flooring down to OSB board subflooring materials and reinstalling new padding and wood planks or a carpet layer. Likewise, wall system reconstruction involves reinstalling removed framing, refitting insulation to the wall cavity, and replacing and finishing drywall. We can finalize these efforts with a fresh coat of matching paint.
