Handling Water Damage Caused by Roof Seepage in a Propane Company in Bay Shore, NY

At Restoration Pros NY, we take pride in our ability to turn stressful situations into success stories. Recently, we had the opportunity to help a propane company in Bay Shore, NY, with a roof seepage water mitigation project that required fast and effective action. Check out how we tackled the challenge and restored peace of mind to our client.

The Challenge: Roof Seepage

When we arrived at the site, we discovered that the main facility roof and storage roof of our client’s propane company had been affected by seepage. It resulted in water damage to three offices and storage areas, including drywall, insulation, ceiling panels, soffit, and studs. While initially, the shingles hadn’t been removed, and the exhaust vents hadn’t been changed, we took the initiative to do these tasks as part of our project. Despite these challenges, our team was prepared to take on the task and provide effective solutions.

Tackling Roof Water Damage 

We took a detailed approach to tackling roof water damage, ensuring both immediate issues and future problems are taken care of. From assessment to sanitization, each step was thoroughly executed for a safe environment. Let’s explore our process for handling roof water damage.

Step 1: Assessment and Planning

We started by thoroughly assessing the extent of the water damage. This involved inspecting all affected areas, identifying the source of the seepage, and determining the best course of action. With a clear understanding of the situation, we developed a mitigation plan tailored to our client’s needs.

Step 2: Water Extraction

The first step in our mitigation process was to remove standing water from the affected areas. With advanced extraction equipment, we extracted pooling water from the storage spaces and roof, minimizing further damage and preventing mold growth.

Step 3: Drying and Dehumidification

Once the water had been removed, we used industrial-grade air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out the affected storage space thoroughly. This helped prevent the spread of moisture and mold while restoring the indoor environment to a safe and healthy condition.

Step 4: Removal and Replacement

With the space properly dried, we moved on to remove damaged materials, including sections of shingles, wet drywall, insulation, ceiling panels, and studs. Our team worked hard to safely dispose of damaged materials and replace them with durable, moisture-resistant alternatives.

Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitization

As a final step, we thoroughly cleaned and sanitized the restored areas to ensure that they were free from any contaminants or mold spores. This not only restored the aesthetic appeal of the space but also provided our client with the peace of mind that comes with a clean and healthy environment.

The Result: A Propane Company Owner and Employees Satisfied

Thanks to our fast and professional water mitigation efforts, we were able to help our client minimize the damage caused by roof seepage and refresh their facility. By taking fast action and using proven mitigation techniques, we minimized disruption for our client, allowing them to focus on their core business activities with confidence.
