Removing Damaged Ceilings in Storm-Damaged West Palm Beach Condos 

High-end condominiums throughout West Palm Beach are unfortunately just as susceptible to the violent weather events as other properties in the path of tropical storms. With the high winds and torrential rainfall, damage to roofs and the building itself can leave your condo exposed to some substantial flooding in the right conditions. Even without several inches of standing water to contend with, repairing and replacing damaged structural elements can be costly enough for even minor flooding. 

Migrating water during a storm event can lead to flood damage in West Palm Beach condos. Because so many condo ceilings include soundproofing to add privacy and a more pleasant living condition, many costlier elements and materials can become damaged when water makes its way through the roof to your building. Depending on where floodwater travels, the same expensive damages could occur in shared wall cavities between yours and another’s unit. 

When our SERVPRO professionals first arrive at your damaged address, we must assess the condo for structural concerns. Ceiling materials like drywall, acoustic ceiling, or plaster can all show noticeable signs of integrity loss with direct water exposure. Pooling water can quickly saturate through porous organic materials like drywall to cause a composition change where the wallboard becomes too heavy to remain installed. 

In many cases, to address the materials used in soundproofing your unit, we must get beyond the surface material like drywall or tile. Noise reduction materials are typically a form of insulation or a mat-like element installed between your ceiling and the floor of the unit about yours. The same premise exists for neighboring condos on the same level. Our SERVPRO team can remove these water damaged materials and work with positive pressure systems, air movers, and dehumidifiers to dry out the damp, structural cavities. Our in-house general contractors can complete the demolition and reinstallation of this material to make this flood loss incident “Like it never even happened.” 

With the premier materials used in the construction of your condo, reconstruction and rebuilding can be costly avenues. Our SERVPRO of Lake Worth team can limit how much of your residence needs to get rebuilt after a flood loss with our fast and confident response. Give us a call today at (561) 588-9777.
