Repairing Ceiling Materials After Colorado Springs Attic Flooding

Ceiling cavities can allow for the movement of high volumes of water during a storm loss incident to Colorado Springs properties. When roofs suffer substantial damage, they can allow direct rainfall, wind-driven rain, and runoff to enter the attic space unabated. Under different events, snow melt can also be the source of interior flooding. Because of the unfinished and often porous wood flooring standard in unused attics, water can begin saturating through the flooring without delays and reaching the living space below.

Recovering flood damage in Colorado Springs homes often entails both the experience and training of our SERVPRO water restoration technicians (WRT), but also the expertise of our in-house residential contractors. Mitigation after storm damages that lead to flooding involves the direct actions of both of these divisions of our team, as our contractors must seal up breaches and begin controlled demolition while our restorers roll out equipment like extractors and drying machines to begin recovery.

Water migration through structural cavities above the ceiling and below the flooring material in your attic space can be challenging to address directly. In many situations, the restoration of these areas is two-fold. The process begins with removing overly damaged construction materials and structural elements. Saturated insulation, for example, is less costly to replace rather than the time it takes to dry sufficiently. Removing damaged materials can also help trapped water in the cavity drain out to maximize later drying efforts.

Before our contractors can work to rebuild the deconstructed area of the house, our SERVPRO team can deploy our positive pressure systems to force dry air into the open cavity to expedite evaporative drying. We can also utilize air movers for this same purpose once structural fixtures like framing and joists have gotten exposed.

Flood damage can be a devastating force for area home and require the full measure of talent and cutting-edge equipment available to our SERVPRO of Northern Colorado Springs / Tri-Lakes team. No matter how we can help after a loss, you can reach our emergency response team 24/7 by calling (719) 434-4626. With our expertise and training, we can make flood losses “Like it never even happened.”
