Here is an Example of What We Did

A rental property in Kaneohe had a faulty water-supply line in the upstairs bathroom. The tenant was off island, so the leak was not detected until the tenant in the lower unit noticed discoloration on the ceiling. Upon inspection we found that the ceiling was saturated. We went upstairs and found that the flooring was beginning to cup and the lower wall drywall was saturated. We located the source in the bathroom. We began mitigation which included removing the ceramic tile in the bathroom, laminate flooring in the upstairs bedroom, and the lower 2 feet of drywall in the bedroom. We also had to remove the ceiling in the lower unit living room. We were successful at removing the affected materials and we were able to dry out the wood structure. We had our reconstruction team replace all removed materials. They reinstalled the ceiling, flooring, and sink vanity bringing a new life to the units affected.
