We had a accident that caused major damage to our house, Called Restorex and they came and assessed it the afternoon we called for help. They stabilized the walls and made sure we were safe. The next day Brian was here to tear out carpet and damaged drywall and take away the damaged remains the next day. We felt totally comfortable with Van and Doug who came every day to work on the house. Our house turned out beautifully. I can’t say enough about their confidence and total control of the repairs. Every concern we had Brian would say “I’ll take care of that”, He did all the insurance communication and all coordination of the different required services and it all came together with quality work seamlessly. We would recommend them to anyone who needs restoration, painting, electrical, plumbing, and flooring. They cleaned up every day before leaving and moved all of our stuff around for us. We can’t thank them enough.

Corbin, Terry, and the team at Restorex are absolutely pros! They helped us when our basement flooded and got the job down right. They also communicated with our insurance adjuster. If you have any restoration needs in your home, they should be your first call and only phone call.

I had a pipe in my basement ceiling leak and we didn’t realize it until the paint on the drywall started to bubble up. I reached out to Restorex to help assess the damage once the leak was fixed by a plumber. It was easy to get in contact with them and they were super responsive. Corbin came out to my house and did the evaluation. He was friendly and very knowledgeable of water damage and the necessary repairs. He explained how to dry out the walls to prevent mold and then explained how I could patch the drywall myself to save some money. He didn’t charge for the evaluation. Overall I was very satisfied with my experience with Restorex and I would definitely use them again if I run into an issue in the future.

Corbin came to give me a quote for restoration and was extremely thorough and knowledgeable in discussing my issue with me. He took the time to explain things to me, which my other restoration company did not, and let me know what could be done to remediate. The quote was also significantly less than the other provider. I would highly recommend him based on his knowledge and willingness to help. Seemed to have good ethics and put me as the customer first.

Top notch company! From the moment I called Restorex, they spent considerable time explaining the process of water remediation, how the insurance claim process would work, and assuring me that this would be handled with care and competence. The crews that came to my house were polite, professional, clean, and very efficient. They worked around my two small children and dogs the whole time, and truly made us feel like they were taking care of us; not just doing a job. They even sent someone over the weekend to check on the equipment and make sure we were doing ok and didn’t have any questions or concerns. This company’s work was top notch, and they went the extra mile and made us feel like family while they did it all. I can truly say I would never use another company for this type of work.

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.

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.
