What Water Damage Reconstruction is Necessary After Burst Pipes in Hamden Homes?

With how destructive water can be in Hamden properties, repairs and reconstruction are often inevitable.

Water damage can be a common threat to homes and businesses in the Hamden area, and with prolonged exposure to building materials, it can be a destructive force. As a reconstruction and repair contractor in the area, we can follow along with the restoration process and perform designated tasks to improve the efficiency of recovery services and rebuild the house to its original condition after this water damage remediation completes.

Controlled Demolition Eliminates Damaged Elements 

Water damage reconstruction in Hamden homes often hinges most directly on services like controlled demolition we provide. By only removing compromised portions of structural elements, we can limit the necessary materials and reconstruction time in later stages. Drylines of affected drywall can discard the lower several feet for flood cutting that provides direct access for drying equipment.

Repairing Removed and Damaged Plumbing

Leaks and line breaks within the walls and between floors that lead to controlled demolition also require repairs for the utility itself. After the water service is temporarily disconnected, we can remove compromised portions of plumbing and replace these degraded elements with PVC and plastic alternatives that can better weather adverse conditions.

Replacing Wall Systems to Their Original Appearance 

Demolition often requires the complete removal of studs, drywall, insulation, and header/footer boards that make up the traditional wall system. When these elements are missing, they must be carefully replaced to restore the property’s original appearance. After utility repairs have been completed, contractors can begin replacing the base materials and studs, attaching boxes like the outlets and light switches in their original positions. Covering the surfaces of these systems with mold-resistant drywall and repainting it should make the area “Even better than before.”
