Step 6: Restoration

The Final Stages of Recovery for Water-Damaged Miami Homes

When your Miami property has experienced a water loss incident, you might breathe a sigh of relief knowing that most of our restoration steps have completed by the time that you reach the last phase. Because of our in-house contractors, we can provide a comprehensive experience for our customers that can save them time and money they otherwise might have wasted on construction subcontractors that other restoration firms might require you to find on your own.

Determining the Salvageability of Materials

Before even the full extraction and drying of many of the materials and contents of your Miami home had completed, our project manager and crew chief determined the definitive line that separated what could get salvaged and restored versus what was more cost-effective to remove and reinstall. Drywall and particleboard cabinets, for example, are often cheaper to reinstall than to attempt to dry, clean, and repair.

The Reasons Reconstruction and Repairs Might Be Necessary for Your Residence

During the earliest stages of mitigation and restoration, including the emergency services and extraction portions, our contractors must often make hundreds of drying decisions that can help to make the ultimate recovery more efficient, including:

  • Providing access to confined spaces like wall and ceiling cavities
  • Eliminating collapse concerns by discarding sagging ceiling materials
  • Preparing damaged flooring for new materials after structural deterioration
  • Reduce the immediate stresses of removing items already deemed too compromised to recover
