Water Damage Bathroom
We got a call from client when their wood floor planks started popping up after they turned on the radiant heat in the floor. Home had previous water damage from a leak in the bathroom, that wasn't discovered for a few days. Insurance company sent out a preferred vendor who set equipment & after a few days said they were all dried out. Months later the wood floor is damaged & popping up. We discovered due to a combination of radiant floor encased in sand, extra thick sub floor, & over 5" of spray foam insulation under the floorboards only the 1st layer of floor had dried, the moisture was held in by the sub floor, sand, & spray foam causing the wood floor to swell when heated. The months of moisture had severely damaged the sub floor, engineered wood floor, & even the 2x8's in the structure. We gutted the flooring, ruined wood, sub floor, footers, drywall, travertine flooring & enclosed shower. This was a very challenging project, but the results speak for themselves!
