SERVPRO Can Help Reattach the Underlayment before Starting Other Water Damage Repairs

Flooding from storms can take different forms. Apart from the usual breach by rising groundwater, a torn roof can also let rainwater into the property leading to unprecedented loss. Taking appropriate actions in good time is essential to containing flood damage.

Flood damage in Fort Pierce properties can be more severe when it originates from the roof since it likely reaches more property sections, including ceilings, wall cavities, and floors. It is also likely to affect most of the contents in the affected rooms. SERVPRO can provide quick relief and find long-term solutions to restore the property to its preloss state.

Complete flood restoration of your Fort Pierce North property may involve:

  • Ceiling repairs from water damages
  • Water removal services
  • Sewage cleanup
  • Water damage remediation

A roof breach is severe if it also affects the underlayment. An underlayment provides an extra layer of protection beyond that of shingles. Storms usually overcome the protection offered by a roof if the shingles are brittle from aging or if wind-driven rain infiltrates below their surfaces. However, if the underlayment remains intact, water should not reach the interior of the house. 

When our SERVPRO team arrives at the loss site, we evaluate the situation and establish the best course of action. We can reattach the rubberized underlayment to offer temporary protection against further water intrusion as the roof awaits full repair. 

Other helpful actions to limit damage include

  • Installing a roof tarp
  • Pack outs to relocate vulnerable contents from affected areas
  • Covering the contents inside the house with protective tarps
