Storm Damage Build Back a Carson City House After a Storm SERVPRO Rebuilds Flood and Storm Damaged Homes in Carson City

SERVPRO Provides One-Stop Shopping for Restoring and Reconstructing Your Carson City Property


Home repairs after a disaster range from replacing roofing tiles to stripping out walls and ceilings. This process can be time-consuming and expensive; it is not something that can be done by a homeowner over a week or two.

To build your storm damaged Carson City home back to its original state, you need a professional restoration company. SERVPRO keeps a response team on-call to secure your home immediately and to rebuild structural property; regardless if the cause was a fire, flood or another disaster.

Our first actions prevent further damage and loss due to the weather, trespassers, or vandals. The SERVPRO restoration team accomplishes this by using plywood to close up broken doors and windows. Technicians seal up roof damage using primarily plastic sheeting and tarps; they use plywood if entire sections have been pulled away or damaged by tree limbs or strong winds.

Next, team members cleanup the damaged property. We remove all burned, soaked, or otherwise ruined elements and, of course, we check with you before throwing out a single item.

Following is a common scenario for rebuilding a storm damaged structure. With that accomplished, we begin the rebuild. Team members start with the walls. First, they install new, interior framing to hang drywall panels. We carefully follow the original floor plan to ensure your home has the same room dimensions as it did previously. Perhaps, our project manager and you set up a new design for the reconstruction. Renovation also includes painting and replacing floor trim to make sure that the finished look is as close as possible to its pre-disaster appearance.

Now, technicians construct a new ceiling frame. Depending on the type of tiles you want to use (in some cases drywall panels are a good choice) or just based on your personal preference, this new frame can be wood or aluminum. Once completed, technicians paint if necessary and install crown molding to ensure a professional, finished look.

Next, we repair the outside to match the inside. The restoration team strips out the door and window framing and replaces it to match the original dimensions. Once the frames are in place, installing new windows and doors takes only a short time. As technicians complete this, other team members replace roofing panels and tiles. Our technicians also replace framing that was damaged as well. If we discover that the roof is not safe to continue work, we stop and recommend a professional carpenter or construction crew come in. At no time will we put your home at risk.

Once you call us, every action we take is to return you to your home as quickly as we can. If your home has damage from a previous disaster, call us today at (775) 588-2355 to get started. SERVPRO of Carson City / Douglas County / South Lake Tahoe is here to help.
