Post-Storm Water Damage Repair Focuses

The house's exterior is often one of the first places heavily damaged by storms and flooding. Several of your home's outermost features can be caught in a damage path when robust weather systems pass through the area. Common repairs to a home after snow, ice, and wind storms include:

  • Roof
  • Walls
  • Dormers
  • Soffit
  • Windows

Collapsed and Sagging Materials

One of the immediate needs for water damage repair in Hicksville homes is the sagging or collapsed materials weighted down by migrating flood water. Clearing out this debris falls along with the needed muck-out cleaning after natural flooding invades a residence. The moist materials installed on the ceiling or walls can be removed and discarded along with the material remnant heaps on the flooring. Access to these structural cavities permits thorough drying before SERVPRO professionals reinstall new materials to return the property to pre-flood condition.

Flood-Damaged Wall Systems 

Walls are constructed of multiple materials susceptible to flood damage. Drywall, insulation, framing, and even certain utilities can get ruined by intruding water. SERVPRO professionals must remove exterior materials of wall assemblies to assess the exposure of inside elements. As surface flooding moves through a building, several wall systems could be damaged simultaneously. A careful evaluation of the home's condition can determine how controlled demolition and subsequent reconstruction services can help a flooded home.

Water-Damaged Basement Materials

A basement is a common place for flooding to occur, and with the severity of this situation, finished lower levels can often require substantial tear-out and reconstruction. Any exposed porous materials must get removed down to the studs and sub-flooring to eliminate bacterial and viral pathogenic threats or moisture that could lead to mold development.

Water damage repairs following storms can be crucial to recovery and restoration. Flooding can be challenging to resolve, but SERVPRO of Hicksville / Plainview professionals work through needed demolition and build-back services to help. Call us at (516) 733-1800.
