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.
Now, we take care of the walls. When the foundation shifts, there is cracking and separating. Some of the framing and structural supports are affected. 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.
