We often encounter water damage problems that require immediate action. Some are acute and others are chronic. This one was acute caused by a braided steel flex line from the water between two bathrooms that springing a leak. The owner responded to a phone book ad.
Rebuild the two bathrooms quickly as they were living in a hotel, and update them as we could not find preformed tubs and showers we had to make new ones. This project was more involved than originally thought, as the damage was wide spread by the time it was uncovered.
Whatever the problem, we explore it and expose it all looking for the smoking gun. Once identified, we deconstruct as much as necessary but as little as possible working with the insurance adjustors to repair the immediate problem and settle upon a repair solution.
The Time Frame:This project took 8 weeks to complete.

We recently had a slab leak in our home and have a lot of water damage downstairs and think we may have mold. I’m not sure if testing is a good idea or if we can assume we have mold due to the fact it was a pretty big flood? All our baseboards and drywall got wet about 4 feet up from the floor … total nightmare!
I appreciate your helpful information.
This is the third attempt to respond, We have been working on the site. Thanks for commenting, There is a urgency to removing the water and the debris associated with a flood to avoid the growth of mold. Mold is a funny thing, it lives all around us and is beneficial for the most part. It is a small number of the molds that are harmful. I will write about it soon. After the immediate problem is cleaned up I would be happy to discuss ways to deal with the prevention of another problem because there are several approaches to explore. I did write about this in a blog about foundation moisture. Call if you want to discuss it further
