Pre mitigation Ceiling We aim to restore your property as quickly as possible, “Like It Never Even Happened.”

Effective Attic Water Damage Repair Objectives

Storm and water damage repair involves understanding how these natural disasters impact your home and the destruction they can cause to the exterior components of your residence, like the roof. Penetration of water into the attic space can be one of the most threatening situations you do not notice immediately during a passing storm.

Inspecting Your Loss

The first step in water damage repair for Wilmington homes is to thoroughly inspect the damage to determine where the action is necessary. Early mitigating stages can involve removing sagging or damaged materials through controlled demolition, which can expose other components of roof systems and structural assemblies for direct drying and mold inhibition cleaning. Inspections are looking for:

  • Roof damages
  • Sagging materials
  • Contaminants
  • Structural integrity loss

Is Contamination a Concern?

With any situation involving intruding water into your home from external sources, the threat of contaminants should not be overlooked. Even with runoff and driven rain, these introduced floodwaters can become contaminated by exposure to certain materials or foreign elements. We carefully handle all wet materials for biohazardous threats. 

Thorough Drying of Structural Supports

The drying process is essential for any restoration action our professionals take in this niche and can be especially important when working in a confined space. Wet structural supports can begin to weaken and degrade with prolonged exposure, requiring tear-out and reconstruction. Fast action with drying tools like centrifugal air movers and dehumidifiers can help prevent this need. 

Needed Roof Repair After Drying

Repairing the roof is an important part of the work that our professionals must complete to fully return a home to pre-damaged condition. Resolving the attic's water is insufficient to prevent recurrences and strengthen anywhere water, or moisture penetration weakens this critical defense system for your property. Our general contractor license ensures that we can complete needed build-back services as they are necessary to restore a residence.

Water damage repair for Wilmington homes can often include the impact of storms on the attic and roof. Understanding how our professionals can help with restoration and repairs makes us a trusted choice to help. Call SERVPRO of Brandywine / Wilmington at (302) 762-8080.
