Water Damage Restoration
Arguably worse than fire damage, water damage can be caused by a multitude of sources and affects one in 10 homes in the United states. With major floods in the double digits and smaller floods as caused by rain fall, improper maintenance, or burst pipes occurring in the millions, it’s important to have a water damage restoration company on call that you can rely on.
At Jaime's Construction LLC, our aim is to provide just that.
Experiencing water buildup in your basement will ruin your day, or even your week, and is one of the most stressful situations a homeowner can be in. Don’t make it any worse by delaying a call to restoration services.
Potential Damages of a Flood
Flooding costs United States citizens over $8 billion per year, and can cause injury and even death. For something that can occur anywhere with extensive rainfall, it’s not to be taken lightly. We recommend calling Jaime's Construction LLC in the case of any flooding, but if you have attempted to dry your basement out on your own, look out for the following symptoms meaning further damage has occurred.
- Cracks in walls
- Visible foundation movement
- Sloping floors
- Doors and windows sticking or not closing
Flood damage seeps into the most unexpected places, and because of this, it is important to hire a professional who can assess the situation accurately.
While each restoration is unique, similar assessment techniques are used.
- Assess visually.
- Extract water as quickly as possible.
- Dry out the room.
- Re-assess more carefully with the water out of the way.
- Provide an estimate for potential reconstruction costs.
When you hire professional water restoration services, you will get detailed and efficient quality workmanship that will set your home up to survive future flood emergencies.
The Reason for Flooding
Flooding can occur for many reasons, some that are preventable and some that come out of nowhere. In older homes especially, even if they have not flooded for many years, they can become unpredictable and start at any time. Your home may flood for any of the following reasons, all of which Jaime's Construction LLC is equipped to deal with.
If your lot was not graded properly and your home is at the bottom of a hilly location, water will flow in your direction.
A foundation that was sealed improperly or has grown to be this way over the years will welcome water seepage.
Surprisingly enough, gutters have an effect on the basement of your home. If they’re not maintained properly, they will not be able to send water away from your home and instead it will pour down the outer walls directly into the foundation.
Unfortunately, pipes can age and also explode, resulting in unexpected and sudden flooding.
