This suburban Philadelphia home sustained water damage as a result of a tropical storm. The homeowner started out to remedy the water damage issues but once all of the mold and carpet was removed great problems were unearthed. There was severe bug damage found as a result of years of leaking behind the wood siding and the windows. The studs were badly rotted and insulation was almost nonexistent.
The entire addition was reframed as needed. The foundation slab was waterproofed to help prevent further water damages in the future. The total job included new sheathing, insulation, and new Certainteed Fiber Cement siding. New wiring was installed as well as new electric baseboard heating. Palmer Construction installed new Paradigm windows and a patio door. New custom siding details and Azek trimboards were installed. All drywall, finish carpentry, and painting was performed by Palmer. The roof and gutter were also repaired as part of this job. The drainage was improved on the roof and an extra downspout was added.
