Step 6: Restoration
What Is Still Needed After Drying Completes?
As you end the restoration processes, many Clearwater homeowners might begin to be less uneasy about the progress. After drying and water removal services, only a few steps are still necessary to complete the job. This process usually involves determining where repairs and reconstruction might be required. Because we have contracting capabilities with our general contractor license, we have a wealth of services we can provide during the restoration process like:
- Temporary board-up and tarping
- Accessing confined spaces like wall and ceiling cavities
- Emergency plumbing repairs
- Discarding sagging ceiling materials
- Preparing damaged flooring for new materials after structural deterioration
- Full-scale repairs and build-back services
Are the Affected Materials Salvageable?
During the last step of the water repair process, our experienced management determined what building materials and contents were salvageable. Those beyond the determined salvageability line would be discarded and ultimately replaced. Our controlled demolition capabilities allow us to provide these cost-efficient solutions rather than prolonging drying and surface restoration that may never work. Particleboard cabinets and drywall, for example, are typical materials more cost-efficient to replace than restore.
Are Repairs Necessary?
Hundreds of drying decisions must be made to ensure we always choose the most effective treatment and restoration method possible. Especially with properties like Ruth Eckerd Hall or Coral Resort, it is vital to decide whatever technique gets the job done fastest to get commercial properties back open to their patrons.
