Damage from water, fire, or storm requires experienced restoration and repair as damage from any of these causes can be more significant than cosmetic. Each type of damage requires a unique restoration approach and a clear understanding of the underlying causes to ensure proper repair and reduce the likelihood of future incidents.
With water damage it is important to identify the source as being from broken or leaky pipes, or storm. Plumbing issues should be addressed before restoration of damaged areas. Water damage can mean mold as well as the compromised integrity of wood, plaster, drywall or other exposed materials. Simply removing damage affected areas may not be enough. An experience company with trained inspectors will also be able to recognize areas needing treatment surrounding the obvious areas. Hiring a company with specialized equipment for killing and removing the health threat of mold is just as crucial as hiring a company skilled in repairs to compromised areas of your home.
Damage attributed to fire can be due to electrical issues and therefore having a company familiar with home wiring can be valuable. Replacing any damaged wiring or outlets is just as important to restoration projects as repairing damage done to walls, floors or ceilings. Fire can cause heat damage to unseen areas that may weaken structures that only a trained professional can recognize.
Storm damage can affect the exterior as well as the interior of your home, and be the root cause of water and fire damage alike if for instance your home were struck by lightning during a heavy thunderstorm. Often times the expenses of these types of restorations are particularly covered by home owner’s insurance, and therefore it is best to work with a contractor experienced in dealing with such jobs. Someone skilled in addressing damage from all of the above and familiar with plumbing, wiring, as well as construction is an asset. Rather than piecing together repair personnel, hiring a company with all the necessary licensed and skilled workers saves you time and a great deal of headache.
