Our Water Damage Restoration Process
The first step in the water restoration process is the removal of the water.

With conventional drying techniques, most class 1 water damage will take 3-5 days to dry.

Once the water has been removed, the water damage repair & reconstruction process begins. Water leaves behind damaged wood and other materials that must be replaced. Case Construction can handle any reconstruction, including the removal of damaged building materials, minor cosmetic touch ups, or even a complete gut job and rebuild. Finally, once the water damage has been fixed, the source of the issue must also be addressed to prevent any future water damage.

Causes of Water Damage
There are several different causes of water damage, each one presenting unique challenges and requiring different solutions. One of the most common causes of water damage are the backflow created by ice dams. The constant melting and refreezing that occurs throughout winter can result in ice buildup in your roof drainage system. Known as ice dams, these can prevent melt water from properly draining off your roof. This back up can result in water making its way into various spaces on your roof and walls, resulting in water damage.
Floods are another common cause of water damage in Grand Rapids. If your basement does not have a sump pump, or if it malfunctions, the water level can back up and start to flood your basement, resulting in water damage. It’s crucial to ensure that your sump pump system is working properly, or even to install a backup system to prevent any flooding.
Water Damage Prevention
Some basic maintenance can help to prevent water damage. Cleaning your gutters and down spouts can help to ensure proper drainage of roof water and minimize the possibility for ice dams. Additionally, if ice dams do begin to form, breaking them up can help to prevent water damage. Some other basic precautions include avoid pouring grease down your sink, keep an eye on your water bill (a high bill could indicate a leak in the system), and directing downspouts away from your house.
