Storm Damage Are You Storing Water Damage in Your Clifton Attic? Strong spring and summer storms can damage your roof, allowing water to enter your home.

Restoring and Repairing Flood Damage in Your Clifton Attic 

Severe weather systems that can sometimes affect the Clifton area of New Jersey offer strong winds capable of hurdling debris and tearing off roofing materials. Once vulnerabilities exist in the exterior defense of your house, it is a direct path for water and elemental exposures to occur that can allow situations like flooding. For the attic of your home, this water damage can spread quickly to the point of getting out of control, and this problem can continue to worsen without the appropriate intervention. 

Among the first steps that must get taken when flood damage is occurring in your Clifton attic from a compromised roof is to get competent and qualified contractors on the scene quickly for temporary solutions. Our SERVPRO rapid response team features licensed contractors that can offer emergency board up and tarping services to correct vulnerabilities in your home’s construction to allow mitigation work to get started. 

Once our professionals have arrived at your flood-damaged address, we must get to work quickly on extracting water from the attic space unless this damage has already spread to the floor beneath this area of the property. The SERVPRO team can utilize moisture detection equipment and thermal imagery to locate moisture between floors of your home and into spaces of the attic that are challenging to access. 

Because mitigation work needs to wrap up as quickly as possible, our team works to ensure that we arrive within hours of a call to get this critical extraction and drying efforts started. Once we have managed these effects inside of the house, our licensed contractors on the team can begin their efforts of rebuilding and restoring the damaged roof that allowed the flooding. 

We offer every customer a comprehensive approach to recovery when flooding has occurred, and our qualified and experienced SERVPRO of Clifton team is available 24/7 to help. You can count on our technicians to make all of the effects of flood damage “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime you need us at (973) 928-3705.
