Call your local professionals at SERVPRO of Bristol to ensure your home is dry and sanitary.

SERVPRO Performs Several Water Damage Repairs 

Understanding the expected course of repairs and reconstruction after water damage can allow homeowners to be more confident in their work. As overwhelming as structural damage can be, we have licensed professionals capable of working quickly to help.

Controlled Demolition and Discarding Material

Water damage repair for Bristol homes must first start with controlled demolition. Heavily saturated materials must often be demolished and discarded to access damaged plumbing or structural cavities. Commonly impacted materials include:

  • Drywall
  • Flooring
  • Carpeting
  • Subflooring
  • Insulation

Plumbing and Fixture Repairs

As commonly as water pipes can cause the damage that affects your home, these are a focal point of repairs necessary. Homeowners need water service to their property, and this is compromised if a pipe is broken or leaking. We can replace portions of the plumbing, connections, fittings, gaskets, and fixtures to stop the unfavorable conditions.

Wall System Reconstruction

With the plumbing repaired, we can work on rebuilding the removed wall system allowing access to the pipes and fixtures. Insulation can be reinstalled, and any supporting material like wood framing gets replaced where necessary. In most cases, the outside of wall systems is covered with drywall, finishing the rudimentary build back of this full assembly.

Refinishing Surfaces 

As important as the repairs are to the house after water and flood damage, we must also take several necessary steps to finish the newly installed surfaces. For example, contractors must finish the drywall by sealing its seams and over screws for a smooth finish ready for primer and painting. This is how our SERVPRO team makes water damage “Like it never even happened.”

Water exposure usually requires some degree of repair and reconstruction after substantial disasters. Our SERVPRO of Bristol team can help with licensed contractors to quickly repair the home and get you back to normal life. Call now at (860) 582-3330.
