Man sitting on the couch with a dog with a Servpro hat on Chuck Lynch, our Construction and Repair Manager, has over 2 decades in this business and is a CT licensed contractor.

As our business has grown, we’ve expanded the services that we offer to our customers.

Most people know that SERVPRO cleans up water, fire and mold damage in homes and businesses. Many of our customers are surprised to discover, however, that our franchise also has a state licensed contractor and crew on board. 

After the fire is put out, the water is extracted, the structure dried, the odor removed, the mold remediated, and the contents cleaned, there is often still the issue of returning the physical structure back to preloss condition. When our restoration crew has completed the clean up of water and fire damage in a structure, our Building Services Manager, Chuck Lynch, and his team will take over for the rebuilding phase. Using SERVPRO for your construction needs streamlines the process for you, enabling you to get back into your home as soon as possible. 

Our professional and licensed contractors will meet with you to assess the damage and formulate a plan to rebuild your home or business.

Some of the services that we offer are:

  • Board Up
  • Carpet Repair and Installation
  • Document Drying
  • Dry Cleaning
  • Drywall Installation
  • Drywall Removal
  • Electrical
  • Electronics Restoration
  • Fine Art Restoration

  • Painting
  • Plumbing

The Best of Both Worlds - We Offer Restoration and Reconstruction Services

8/7/2018 (Permalink)

The SERVPRO of Newtown and Southern Litchfield County team offers both water damage restoration and construction services

Should you use the same contractor for your water damage restoration and reconstruction? 

In a nutshell: Yes 

When you have experienced a flood in your home, the water damage restoration process has several stages. After the source of the flooding has been stopped, SERVPRO of Newtown and Southern Litchfield County will come in and dry out your home. We order a dumpster if needed and remove wet and damaged insulation, carpeting and walls. If your belongings have gotten wet or are in danger of getting wet or moldy from the water, we pack them up and move them to temporary storage. Any wet household items that can be salvaged are cleaned, usually at our off-site facility.  

After any standing water has been removed with extractors, our team uses a variety of tools to remove the excess moisture from your home. Industrial grade dehumidifiers and air movers dry things out. We take into consideration room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home or business. Our professionals are trained to provide sanitizing treatments and to remove odors and deodorize your home.  

When everything is dried out, it’s time to put your home back together.  Whether there was a small leak that damaged just a few walls and molding or a catastrophic flood that has left your home without walls and ceilings, most homes with water damage require some reconstruction by a contractor. Most Brookfield area water damage restoration companies do not offer construction services, leaving you searching google for a  contractor after their work is completed.  

SERVPRO of Newtown and Southern Litchfield County offers full reconstruction services. Our licensed contractors will seamlessly pick up where our restoration team has left off without missing a beat. Our team understands the full scope of the work to be done.  When you have one contractor do the restoration and another do the reconstruction, an instant gap in communication exists. Dealing with two separate companies can create a situation where things slip through the cracks.  

Our office staff - Kathy, Theny and Alexis - understand your needs because they have been with you since the first phone call.  Rebuilding your home after a disaster, whether the job is big or small, can be both stressful and overwhelming.  We aim to make the entire process as streamlined and stress free as possible.
