Home Restoration After Damage

Water Damage Repairs in West Palm Beach

At Titan Restoration, we specialize in water damage repairs in West Palm Beach and surrounding areas. Our company comes in after the water has been removed by other agencies to fix whatever caused the problem and restore your home to how it looked before everything happened. At Titan, our contractor license allows us to do every kind of work except to build a new home from scratch.

We start at the bottom, which is the foundation for a home. If water has gotten under the foundation, we have the expertise to determine just how much soil needs replacing. Our technicians install temporary jacks to take the place of the washed out soil as our inspectors determine if the foundation has shifted or if it just needs to be shored up with new dirt and gravel.

If the foundation has shifted, we can relevel it to a flat surface again. We do this by adding in soil and compacting under jacks. As we increase the amount of dirt and gravel, we raise the jacks and repeat the process until it is as level as the day the concrete hardened. For more severe shifting, we use torque anchors and push piers to hold the foundation level and compact soil and gravel around them.

If it was severe enough, we could see it through the cracks in the drywall, plaster, and ceiling tiles. Another indication of damage is when doors and windows that functioned before the flood now stick or do not open without a solid, shoulder push.

Putting the foundation back in place can take care of some of the problems, but not all. Titan visually inspects the framing and structural supports in the affected areas. If there is splintering in the wood, then the integrity is compromised, and we replace it. Even minor damage in large support beams eventually worsens, and then the safety of the home is at risk.

Repairing the walls and foundation is just the start. If not done correctly, then any other repairs to the home are done on a compromised platform that only needs time cause more problems and repair costs. To prevent this, contact Titan Restoration today at 561-345-3751.

Fire Damaged Home

Fire Damage Repairs to West Palm Beach Homes

When the fire damage to your West Palm Beach home is severe, it is necessary to accomplish repairs quickly. Once structural components are compromised, the situation does not stay static. Wood continues to degrade and rot; when it collapses, the secondary damage can be just as costly as the original.

Titan Restoration specializes in fire damage reconstruction in West Palm Beach. We are fully licensed with Florida to rebuild a home from the ground up. Almost any business advertising itself under construction can tear out and replace sheetrock or ceiling tiles. Very few of them can repair a foundation, replace the load-bearing walls and put a new roof on top of everything.

When a fire burns hot enough; even concrete splits and breaks. Our work crews start by grinding down the house and garage floors until we reach a point where there are none of these indications. Next, we smooth and clean out the interior of the cracks, so the new concrete fills them. Once we smooth out the new surface, most homeowners are not able to see where the new concrete blends into the old floor.

To replace walls, first, we installed temporary supports. Our equipment inventory includes a wide range of wall jacks, inflatable lifts, and other support devices. With these devices in place, our technicians build new structures using wood, steel, and aluminum to replace the burned out beams and framing. When the replacement is at this level, we can increase and reduce the size of certain rooms as long as the floor plan, and the insurance company supports the changes.

New RoofInstalling a new roof is often the simplest effort. Most roof supports are pre-made according to state regulations, so we do not have to build them on-site. Our crews and drivers lift and set them in place with our heavy equipment. Installing them requires several days and then laying a new roof over the structure takes up to another week depending on how many square feet we have to cover.

There is more to restoration after fire damage, but these are three of the major tasks we undertake to put our neighbors back into their homes. To schedule an appointment or if you have questions about our work, contact Titan Restoration at 561-345-3751 today.
