What Reconstruction Follows Water Removal in Telluride

Repairs Amid Telluride Water Removal 

While restoration providers are responsible for conducting much of the water removal Telluride homes might require after disasters, our Disaster Reconstruction Services team can help with the connected repairs and rebuilding necessary. We work directly with trusted restoration partners to conduct build-back services promptly for customers with water damage removal issues.

What Is Controlled Demolition? 

Water removal in Telluride generates a need for a process known as controlled demolition. The objective is to remove the portions of building materials directly impacted by leaks, flooding, or burst pipes without eliminating elements that do not require it. Removing and discarding material meets three goals: providing access to damaged internal wall systems, eliminating structurally compromised components, or removing mold. Controlled demolition is a huge part of any water removal.

Assessing the Plumbing Network

Pipes moving water into and throughout your home are sensitive to extreme cold, air, pressure, age, and chemical reactions. After damages like leaks, consider evaluating the kind of plumbing in the house that you wish to change to avoid future issues. Common materials in water removal can include:

  • Lead – Lead service lines are susceptible to chemically reacting with minerals in treated water, deteriorating these components of your plumbing system over time. Disaster Reconstruction Services should replace lead pipes, fittings, and fixtures with modern PEX to avoid this continued threat.
  • Copper – One of the largest contributors to damaged copper pipes traditional in homes built before the turn of the century is minerals in the water. Products used to soften water can gradually deteriorate and thin the walls of copper pipe tubing, leading to splits and holes under pressure.
  • PEX/Plastics – While less common, plastics can also suffer damages in situations like freezing, under insulation, improperly installed connections and fittings, or unions joining new with older plumbing elements.

Working from the Subflooring

Flooring is one of the building materials in the house most likely to be impacted or compromised by water saturation after a loss. When demolition is needed to remove carpeting, padding, or plank flooring, the subflooring material is exposed and vulnerable. Little can happen with the property or other impacted areas of the residence until the subflooring is assessed and these removed materials are replaced to begin returning this base structure to its original condition.

Rebuilding Wall Systems

Full reconstruction is more common than many homeowners might think. Like fire damage, many compromising conditions threatening the structural elements do not exist on the surface. The rebuilding following interior wall system leaks requires demolition of the studs and headers, even insulation being pulled out and discarded. After our SERVPRO restoration partners complete drying, we can replace removed wall system components from the inside out to a finished, painted drywall surface.
