Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Repairing Vulnerabilities to Flood-Damaged Woodbury Structures

2/1/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Woodbury, Cottage Grove is ready to tackle the water with you.

After flood damage in Woodbury properties, many materials require repair or replacement. 

Flooding can be very destructive, so in most situations, some degree of build-back and structural repair is needed to make the disaster "Like it never even happened." Our experienced team can quickly evaluate the house's condition to show where greater attention is required after restoration.

Inspection and Integrity Evaluation

After flood damage in Woodbury homes, property owners can be overwhelmed by the impact of intruding water. A careful inspection of the house can show where immediate cleanup and mitigation solutions can help, including:

  • Extraction
  • Content Relocation
  • Disinfection

Repairing the Roof

Severe storms can quickly cripple and destroy the roof of a home, especially if the materials have already started to weaken or deteriorate due to age or wear. Heavy snowfall, hail, strong winds, and other severe weather circumstances can remove shingles and impact underlayment materials like plywood and joists. After floodwater is cleaned up from the basement, our team must replace and repair vulnerabilities to the roof.

Replacing Basement Foundations

The infiltration of groundwater into the basement level of your house can destroy mortar joints and any vulnerabilities in the low-porosity concrete masonry units. Not only does our SERVPRO team need to address the standing water in the basement to prevent greater harm to stored contents or finished surface materials, but repairs must also occur to any of these newly formed openings where water entered the house.

Restoring Water-Damaged Wall Assemblies

Repairs also mean correcting issues with wall and ceiling assemblies. Trapped water within these structural elements and cavities can develop mold and deteriorate exposed materials. In many cases, moisture detection devices can determine how far moisture wicks up surfaces like drywall to gauge the needed flood cuts.

Several repairs are needed after floodwater exposure and subsequent damage to a local home. With the restoration experience and the general contractor license of our SERVPRO of Woodbury, Cottage Grove team, we can help. Give us a call today at (651) 314-4631.
