Water damage is stressful for everyone. Whether it’s from a broken water line or Mother Nature, it can wreak havoc on our pockets and our peace of mind. It doesn’t have to be stressful, though. How, you might ask? Continue reading below.
Water Damage Repair
How do plumbers repair water damage? The process goes something like this:
- Stop the water source.
- Once the water stops, assess the damage thoroughly.
- Remove damaged materials (flooring, drywall, etc.) and allow for at least 48 hours of drying before replacing materials.
- Once 48 hours have passed, begin repairs to walls and floors, including replacing drywall.
The amount of water damage can vary greatly depending on the situation, so please consult a plumber before trying to take on this work by yourself. Not only are they experts, but they also have the equipment necessary to take on these tasks safely and efficiently.
So How Much Does a Plumber Cost?
The average cost of a plumber can range widely for routine work but don’t let that scare you. The cost of a plumber all depends on the services needed and the severity of the situation. Do your research before hiring a plumber and ask as many questions as necessary. Below, we’ll compare the average plumbers’ quotes to The Rooter Guys’ quotes.
Other Plumber Quotes
Other plumbers may include fees for travel and emergency services in their quotes, depending on the location and time of day the service is needed.
