Storm Damage Flood Cut
This customer had their home flooded from outside water. Luckily no contents were affected. Even though the water depth was only an inch, the water was absorbed into the drywall and traveled up. As a standard for flooded homes from outside water, we do a 2' flood cut. Our technician cuts all affected drywall to a standard 2' along the perimeter. The technician used a moisture meter to determine what areas of the home were wet. The meter shows 22.6 and red meaning that it is wet. Once the drywall was removed the framing was dried out. A final moisture check shows the framing is dry at the standard of 14% for wood materials.
