Water Damage Destroys Commercial Offices
The recent snow storms caused many issues, from excess snow piles to hazardous road conditions. But for one commercial space, the weather led to costly water damage that wreaked havoc on their business.
The conditions that led to the damage were common, but the outcome was less than ideal. The damage that was suffered affected both the exterior and interior of the structure. After multiple snowfalls, snow had piled up on the roof. Because of the temperature fluctuations, the snow began to melt, where it refroze on the eaves of the building. The gutters became stressed under the weight, and began to separate from the roof. Some even fell to the ground as a result.
On the inside, damage occurred too. Melting ice led to a large amount of water that trickled in through the roof, and fell into multiple office spaces inside. Unfortunately, this happened on the weekend, so no one was available to catch it before it became a larger issue. When employees came in on Monday, they witnessed the damage. Flooring was waterlogged, ceiling tiles were sagging, and documents had become soaked.
SERVPRO of Norwalk/Wilton responded at the request of the building owner. When we arrived on scene, we extracted the excess water and began to dry the office out. Our reconstruction team redid the floors, ceilings, and walls after the areas were dry enough to continue.
