Restorex was quick to come out after our sump pump float failed to engage the pump. They ran a machine over the basement carpet to try to pull the water out and into the sump pit after the pump was working. Afterwards, they installed about 20 fans and 2 large dehumidifiers for 3 days to continue to dry out the carpet. Very friendly and easy to talk to guys.

Corbin was very informitive, was also very pproffesional and curtious with me each time we spoke or visited. I felt he went above expectations on the entire task at hand. Corbin handled the entire project start to finish and offered additional suggestion along the way to better my problem with the mold. He handled a roof and deck replacement along with remaining mold remediation. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMEND RESTOREX SHOULD I EVER NEED IN THE FUTURE, THANKS CORBIN! Restorex and Corbin is what services should be. Dan O

Corbin, Terry and the crew went above and beyond to make our worst nightmare turn into a dream come true. We purchased a house in Oct 2021 and 2 hours after closing we had a fire. They were quick to come out and start the process of making our home better than before ! They were very kind and hard working , never hesitated to answer any of our questions or concerns and walked us through the process and even took some matters in their own hands ! As first home owners and our first fire, things were scary, confusing and very stressful! But thanks to them they made the process easy and worked very hard to get us into our home ! They even went out of their way to help get our appliance in the home and hooked up which wasn’t expected of them ! They still are responsive and quick to help ! I highly recommend reaching out if you’re in need of amazing work and want nice and respectful crew ! Super clean work and overall amazing people ! I couldn’t thank them enough !

Corbin spent 20 minutes on the phone with us yesterday trying to diagnose a leak situation behind a load bearing wall. He was extremely patient with us while asking us just the right questions to sufficiently solve our problem without even coming to our house. I would not hesitate to call him again or recommend him and his business! He knows his stuff!!

When our sump pump, back-up, and water sensor alarm all failed, and we ended up with water in our basement, we did a Google search and are so happy that we found Restorex! Corbin took my call late on Sunday night and came to our house first thing on Monday morning to assess and make a plan. His crew was out within an hour and immediately got started on getting the carpet removed and their equipment in place to dry everything out. They were all so nice and polite and worked very hard and efficiently. They made a situation no one wants to deal with as pleasant and painless as possible. Hopefully, we never have another flooding situation, but if we do, I will absolutely call them again!

Brian G. was amazing at inspecting our rental unit crawl space. We had some standing water concerns and weren’t sure if it had caused damage, needed some repairs, or was okay. He provided some great advice on steps to take next. I was pleased Restorex doesn’t try to upsell, and has our best interest in mind. Will definitely use them again!

Burst Pipe Restoration in Fishers, IN

After the broken pipe has been repaired, our pipe burst flood restoration service team can begin.

The water restoration process has 5 steps:

 

The process starts with a water damage inspection and assessment.

Our highly trained water technicians will use a variety of moisture meters to determine how much of the property was affected by the broken pipe.

We will initially use a non-invasive meter and thermal imaging camera and later in the remediation process, we will use invasive moisture meters.

The inspection will allow us to assess the damage and to advise the property owner on the scope and cost of the water mitigation services and repairs.

This is the moment when the property owner can decide if they would like to call their insurance provider to place a claim.

Burst pipes cause a lot of water to pour into a property. The water always finds a way to the ground floor. This usually causes a flooded basement, crawl space or concrete slab.

Our team will begin removing the standing water using our portable water extraction equipment.

Removing as much water through extraction is very important to properly dry the property.

Once the standing water has been removed, our team will start removing the building materials that have been ruined by the water damage or will not dry out during the water mitigation process.

Materials that are normally removed include:

  • Drywall
  • Baseboards
  • Insulation
  • Laminate Flooring
  • Particle Board Cabinets
  • Tile floors installed on Wood Subfloor

It is important to remove the materials that will not dry during the mitigation process.

This step creates the most chaos for the home or business owner but it is very necessary to prevent mold growth, rot or decay.

After the building materials have been properly removed, the drying can begin. Our water damage equipment includes dehumidifiers, fans, and heaters. This drying equipment will remove the remaining water from the property.

The dry out will take 3 to 5 days on average. The drying equipment will be tailored for each water restoration project.

When the property has been dried out from the burst pipe flood damage, our team can start the repairs.

The repair process requires the property to make new selections for the building materials that were removed. This normally includes flooring, paint, baseboards, and cabinetry.

Causes of Burst Pipes in Fishers Indiana

There can be several reasons pipes burst in Fishers Indiana. One of the biggest causes is cold winter temperatures that freeze pipes.

Frozen Burst Pipes

Frozen burst pipes are very common in the winter for most of Central Indiana including Fishers. When the temperature drops below 10 degrees Fahrenheit many properties are at higher risk for frozen burst pipes.

Frozen water spigots, water pipes above garage ceilings, water lines installed in crawl spaces and copper pipes installed in exterior walls are all vulnerable to cold winter temperatures.

Slab Burst Pipes

Slab leaks are another common cause of pipe burst. When the copper piping, installed in a concrete slab fails, it will begin flooding a home underneath the flooring. This can also affect kitchen cabinets or bathroom cabinets if the water pipe was installed under these cabinets.

CPVC Burst Pipes

CPVC is a type of plumbing pipe that was installed in some homes. The piping becomes very brittle over time and can break or burst easily if disturbed. Many of these pipes can start with a small leak and eventually burst. A small leak can go undetected for an extended period before a homeowner finds it or sees it.

Toilet Water Line Bursts

Toilet supply lines are a common cause of water damage. The plastic attachments can fail overtime causing the pressurized water line to blow off and spray water in the bathroom.

Refrigerator Water Lines

Refrigerator water lines are sneaky because they normally are slow leaks that happen over a long period of time. When a refrigerator water line leaks it normally takes a homeowner several months before they realize they have an issue.

Washing Machine Supply Pipe

Washing machines or any other appliances that have water supply lines can have a burst pipe. The connection can be tweaked, or the water line can be pinched during the installation of the appliance. Or if the connection is not properly tightened it can come loose from the washing machine.

Hot Water Heater Supply Burst

Normally a water heater will fail at the bottom of the tank before a supply pipe will burst but at times, we have seen water pipes burst near the water heater. Any pipe that has pressure on it has the potential to cause flooding from a broken pipe.

Burst Pipe Water Damage Insurance Coverage in Fishers, IN

The good news about having water damage from a burst pipe, is the emergency services and repairs are covered by a typical property owner’s insurance policy.

When an insurance company is looking to provide coverage for water damage, they are looking for issues that were accidental and all of sudden, which most burst pipes happen that way.

The insurance coverage is always to the full extent of the policy and is not limited, like flooded basements or drain backups.

When our customers have significant water damage from burst pipes, most of the time they will place an insurance claim for the damage. When they place an insurance claim, the out of pocket expenses are known and limited to the insurance deductible.

This gives our customers and us the peace of mind to do what is necessary to mitigate the damage and to repair the property to its pre-loss condition.
