Repairs Needed for Severe Storm Damage Repair in Fort Lee Homes
Water Damage Repair Takes Many Forms
Storms and water damage can be extensively disruptive and destructive to your home. We have experienced professionals to help with needed repairs and reconstruction during our restoration process.
Classifying Your Storm Loss Event
The need for water damage repair in Fort Lee homes is relative to the damage classification. Loss events can be broken into one of four categories:
- Class 1 – Storm and water damage of this type include only portions of rooms. In all, this classification is designated for restoration projects that are small in scale. Impacted materials are either slow to absorb water or non-porous.
- Class 2 – The second class refers to a greater scope of water damage where absorption is more of a factor. Carpet and padding have been impacted by intruding water. OSB board or plywood for structural support might also be affected at this stage.
- Class 3 - When storm water damage has come from floors above to lower levels of the house by passing through structural assemblies like the ceiling and insulation, you have the chance of material collapse with a dire need for cleanup and drying.
- Class 4 – This is the worst classification of water damage in which materials are so widely impacted by intruding stormwater that even resistant materials like concrete and masonry units are wet. This final classification of possible water damage requires longer drying times and extensive repairs.
