Tree destroyed this home in Tyler, Tx

On our most recent project in Tyler, TX, a home faced a daunting challenge when a tree damage incident left its wooden framing in chaos. Let’s recount the journey of restoring this home to its former glory and the steps taken to address the damages and enhance its structural integrity.

  1. Assessing the Damage: Upon arrival, our team carefully inspected the extent of the damage caused by the fallen tree. The wooden framing was severely affected, necessitating immediate attention. The first step involved securing the exposed areas under a protective tarp to prevent further damage from the elements.
  2. Roof Reconstruction: To address the compromised roofing structure, we worked on a comprehensive reconstruction process. The damaged sections were removed down to the sheathing, allowing for a thorough assessment of the plywood beneath. Any weakened or compromised plywood was promptly replaced to ensure a solid foundation.
  3. Upgrading with a New Window: A pivotal moment in the restoration was installing a brand-new 36×60 window. This not only introduced a fresh aesthetic to the home but also enhanced natural light and ventilation, contributing to an overall revitalized living space.
  4. Synthetic Underlayment and Water Shield Installation: To protect the roof against future challenges, a new synthetic underlayment was meticulously laid over the field. Additionally, we installed a robust Ice & Water Shield over all valleys and penetrations, providing an extra layer of protection against water intrusion.
  5. Drip Edge and Flashing Enhancements: No detail was overlooked in the restoration process. New drip edges were installed over all eaves and rakes, safeguarding the edges of the roof. The flashing underwent thorough inspection, with any compromised sections promptly replaced to ensure optimal protection against the elements.
  6. Vents, Pipe Jacks, and Gas Caps Replacement: A comprehensive overhaul included the replacement of all vents, pipe jacks, and gas caps. This step not only addressed existing issues but also ensured a uniform and upgraded appearance for the entire roofing system.
  7. Sealing and Finishing Touches: To guarantee long-lasting durability, all vents, penetrations, and exposed nails were meticulously sealed. This final touch not only added an extra layer of protection but also contributed to the polished aesthetics of the restored home.

The restoration of this Tyler, Tx home stands as a testament to the resilience of both the structure and the dedicated team involved. Through meticulous attention to detail and a commitment to quality craftsmanship, the once-damaged home now stands proudly, ready to embrace a new chapter of serenity and comfort for the homeowner.
