Water damage can be caused by several things, including: ice dams, improper roof drainage, downspouts not installed properly, sump pump failure, floods, faulty or old pipes, and more. When you work with the experts at Case Construction, we will identify the root cause to help ensure it does not happen again.
Strange odor, ice dams on the roof, discoloration on wood, visible leaks, or standing water can all be signs of water damage. If you think you might have water damage, call Case Construction immediately so our water damage restoration team can get started.
It is important to keep up on maintenance and check periodically for signs of water damage. Remove ice dams, clean your gutters, ensure that downspouts carry water far enough away from your house, and check pipes to prevent potential water damage.

The first step is to determine the source and repair it. Case Construction will respond quickly to remove the water and set equipment to begin the drying process. Our priority is to minimize the damage and salvage as much as possible.
Water damage coverage depends mostly on what the cause was Speak with your insurance agent to clarify what your policy does and does not cover. In the event of water damage, Case Construction will work directly with the insurance company to get the water damage restored as efficiently as possible.
A typical dry-out will last 2 to 4 days, but the timeline is dependent upon multiple factors. Case Construction monitors set equipment regularly, with instruments and tools to take precise readings. This confirms the affected areas are drying out per the IICRC industry standard protocol.
The final cost is calculated upon multiple variables, including time, extent of damage, and affected areas. Case Construction utilizes an industry-specific pricing software, which is the same system used by your insurance carrier.
