When dealing with buildings that have been affected by flooding it is important to understand the impact and implications of the water on the fabric of the building, as well as the long term implications of the repairs needed.
Too often repairs to flood affected buildings are undertaken by general builders with little or no understanding of the long term effect that can be expected when buildings get wet.
Trust Preservation are specialists when it comes to flood restoration and repairing buildings affected by water ingress. We can also advise on and offer Flood Defence Systems.
This is achieved by monitoring and inspecting the drying structure. Trust Preservation can assist their clients by undertaking the drying aspects and can carry out investigations to highlight areas at greatest risk from fungal decay or degradation. This service can considerably speed up the drying process and will reduce the possibility of problems of dry rot and other latent defects affecting the building after the refit is complete.
In simple terms, the effect of flooding is to put unwanted water into the fabric of a building. At Trust Preservation we deal with these problems daily and our experience in dealing with rising and penetrating dampness can be applied to a flooded building.
Trust Preservation can effectively rectify the damage caused by water ingress. Utilising this expertise will greatly reduce the possibility of future problems. In our experience, problems with repairs related to flooding are common – but may only surface months or years after the property is fully restored.
In some cases, it is possible to use products and techniques that will allow a building to be repaired and reoccupied before the fabric of the building is completely dry without compromising the repair or living conditions. Options will be established at survey stage.
