3 Things You Did Not Know About Water Damage Restoration

Fri, Jul 29, 2016

Water damage restoration is an art. It is a couple of notches about other types of construction projects because it poses special challenges that you do not find on other job sites. There is a lot of work that has to go into a restoration if you want it to come out correct. A lot of people do not know too much about this type of restoration because luckily a lot of people do not fall victim often. There are 3 things that most people do not know about water damage and the repair process.

1. The three levels. Water damage is categorized on three different levels. Water damage from a clean source (like a dishwasher or washing machine) is category I, water that comes from a source that has the potential to cause illness is category II (brackish water) category III is the worst category because it is relative to water sources that WILL make you sick like sewage lines. These categories are important because it will determine the steps that are necessary to begin restoration. Even clean sources of water can be dangerous if not handled as soon as possible.

2. Short window of opportunity. When you have water damage you have a short window of opportunity to get it fixed before it starts to become worse. It only takes about 48-72 hours for mold and mildew to set in and cause further damage to your goods or property. Acting quickly to get a restoration team in place can help to avoid further issues. Your first goal should always be to minimize further damage. If it is a water main, shut down the water supply, sewage issue shut down the water supply, whatever is causing the damage shutting off the water will help.

3. You may not be covered. Homeowner’s policies vary and you may not be covered for all or even some of the repairs. Reporting the issue as soon as possible and taking the steps to minimize the damage may help your claim to be processed quickly. Before you begin work to restore be sure to call your insurance company to find out what if anything they will cover.

Water damage can be extensive. You need professional help as soon as you can get it to reduce the amount of damage and to start the restoration. Call Shaw Company Remodeling when you need help with water damage.

I am thrilled with the complete master bath remodel that Alain & his incredible crew from Shaw recently completed in my home. It was a great experience from start to finish. This company truly works as a team, communication channels are all open. Even when a hiccup occurred…they addressed it immediately & moved forward. The crew was professional & positive…really a pleasure to have them in my home. Alain went above & beyond in every aspect including making sure I was not simply satisfied with the work but truly happy. I also want to thank his crew member Sammy. He did an exceptional job & really kept the work site clean every day. I will absolutely use Shaw again for future projects.

Due to broken leg/fall I am in a wheel chair for the next 4 months and required our bathroom to be remodeled in a hurry. Eric committed to complete the job at a reasonable price and a short time frame. The work was completed ahead of schedule and on budget. All employees were great and very professional. I will use Shaw again for future work on my home and have no problem recommenting the company to others.

Shaw remodeling did an excellent job on our master bathroom. Clay was always concerned that we were satisfied with their work. When they tell you they are not finished until you are 100% happy THEY MEAN IT! I want to thank Clay for all his hard work on the new door it was a bit difficult to install. Everyone mentions the beautiful door. Special thanks to Jordan for suggesting the accent wall behind the vanity also a favorite of all. Brittany made is so easy helping us with the design. Thank you to Nancy and the Shaw family who sent me flowers while I was very ill during the remodel.

Alain and his crew were great. Hard working through this heat outside. Very conscious about the area they were not working in to keep clean. Great job painting brick, siding and trim with different shades. Very professional in their execution of the contract. Would definitely contract them for any future work. Thanks again.

We live with the work done by your team. Everyday we can enjoy the results. Through hail and high water, tile delays, it is an accomplishment all around. I appreciate the generosity of explaining why this and that is done. Our letters are intended to show our thanks. Any bonus was well deserved/earned by the team. Be proud of the work done, as we are in showing it off.

I had a wonderful experience with my recent renovation, timely help, many choices in the showroom, professional workers in my house, reasonable cost. This was the second time I used this company. Granite countertop, tile flooring, lighting, paint, tile backsplash, sink. I feel like I have a whole new house! And I didn't have to take off work, GREAT JOB, Shaw!

We used Shaw Company to remodel our master bathroom. Everyone we met with was very professional and helpful. Patrick helped us with the initial design phase, Brittany with the material selections, Anthony oversaw the actual construction, and Nancee checked in with us regularly to keep us informed and make sure we were pleased with everything! I really appreciated that they had a design center so I didn't feel overwhelmed with that part of the process. Additionally, Anthony did a great job of communicating with us daily through the process and making sure things were done right. It was a great experience and I enthusiastically recommend Shaw Company Remodeling!

Our kitchen remodel took 8 weeks to complete. Salvador and his crew worked hard. They were knowledgeable and professional, as well as, friendly throughout the process. I had a special request for the color of my cabinets. Salvador got it done. They are beautiful and unique. I was always able to reach Salvador at anytime and he always took care of the situation. The office staff was so helpful, especially in the selection process.. Everyone was professional, helpful and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend Shaw Remodeling, the office staff, Salvador and crew for your remodeling needs, big or small. We will definitely call them again.

We have used several remodeling companies through the years ending up with substandard work. So glad to have found Shaw! We will never use anyone else! With the way most companies just want to take your money and run, it's nice to find someone with a great work ethic! They really care about their clients and the quality of their work. Thanks Shaw!

Shaw is a very professional company. Anthony was informative, courteous, and super professional. He communicated continually throughout the remodeling process and was always willing to adjust or change anything we requested. His crew was very respectful. Christopher, Marcus, and Roy are outstanding in their fields. From Patrick's design expertise and Brittany's helpful coordination of materials, my kitchen is beautiful and functional. The Shaw team follows up continually and is great to work with.

We hired Shaw Co to redo our shower. We had previously received quotes from two other shower companies but we felt they were being less than honest with us and were pricier than they needed to be. Shout out to Patrick and Fernando, Jr!

These guys at Shaw are great: they'll do what they say they're going to do, and they do it on time. For the next project, they're at the top of the list.
