Flood Damage in Telluride Requires Repairs
Disaster Reconstruction Services have spent years growing our credibility through Colorado for disaster recovery and repairs needed to get your life back to normal after unexpected flood damage events. We have been able to help with all phases of flood damage in Telluride.
Addressing Wet Materials From Flood Damage
Flood damage to Telluride homes impacts many surface materials with this intruding water. With multiple porous elements used in the construction of your home, including carpeting, wood paneling, drywall, chair rails, and insulation, the saturation process can ruin these elements. When you factor in the possibilities of contamination into the equation, which restorers must consider with groundwater infiltration to your residence, any impacted surfaces capable of absorbing this intruding water become compromised and must get removed and appropriately discarded.
Our team assesses the integrity of these installed components. When cleared to remain, they serve as the base for new surface materials that return your home to its original appearance from flood damage:
- Studs – Interior walls of your home do not usually have multiple layers of materials. Surfaces are covered with drywall, and the inside framework is composed of vertical studs attached to head and base plates, with fire blocks and cripple studs creating reinforcement where necessary. Often the wood framing is safe to remain if not contaminated or water damaged, making a firm based on the reinstallation of drywall paneling.
- Subflooring – Swift action by the team to discard wet flooring materials can stop the demolition of the subflooring material rather than a more complex reconstruction underneath the house. Subflooring consists of the supporting joists and framework creating a firm base for the rooms of your home, often covered with a final panel of either plywood or OSB board before padding and carpeting get installed.
- Foundation – While often already exposed, Disaster Reconstruction Services can assess the foundation for leaks and structural compromise that can challenge structural integrity.
Rebuilding from the Base Elements
Sometimes surface materials become too severely damaged to preserve and protect after flooding. Widespread contamination, for example, requires the removal of porous materials altogether. What is left in these scenarios are the base elements of construction, or essentially the skeleton of your house. New material is brought in and installed to these exposed features and finished to match the rest of the property unaffected by the intruding floodwater.

Protecting Against Mold Damage
Mold can be one of the more challenging byproducts after flood damage. Contaminants brought in mixed with the widespread moisture concern present ideal conditions for microbial development. To address these concerns, surfaces get sprayed with inhibiting products, making them uninhabitable to migrating mold spores. At the same time, contractors can work to eliminate deteriorating structures most suitable for supporting mold and fungal growth.
