Our Work : Decking Water Damage Repair – Burbank and Los Angeles – SoCal
Water damage remediation isn’t something that we tend to think about in advance, only when we’re in the middle of an emergency or monitoring a part of our home that has been getting progressively worse.
At RWT Design and Construction we have been working with families for over 30 years to not only make their dream a reality when it comes to home remodeling but also waterproofing and repairing water damage inside and outside of homes and commercial buildings in Los Angeles (and surrounding areas).
Case Study – Water damaged Decking Remediation & Remodeling
An issue with the deck above caused leaking to the below deck. This led to water damage to the deck and inside the home.
Assessing the Damage:
It’s important to hire a professional for water damage remediation jobs because there is often more damage than what is initially visible. This was the case with this job.
When we opened up the walls and ceilings we found the insulation was completely wet and there were dry rot and mold caused by the leaking deck. The glass from the windowsill needs to be repaired.
We started with the framing repairs and new plywood, once this was completed we installed new metal flashing and waterproof deck coatings.
After the deck coatings were completed we carried out a water test to make sure all the leaking was remedied.
Then we could install/repair the drywall and paint. We were also able to modify and strengthen the steel handrails and fabricate new post base caps to ensure we will not have any water intrusion from the fasteners.
We also had to replace the glass in the windows that were leaking.
The final product was completed painted and finished, ensuring that the decking will not need to be rebuilt again if proper maintenance is done.
The homeowners were so happy with the performance of RWT Design and Construction that they recommended our services to their relatives and friends!
