Water damage drywall repair after washers water hose bursts in Merritt Island

On this Merritt Island water damage drywall repair project I was contacted by the homeowner after their washer water line had leaked in the laundry room. Damaging one wall directly behind the washer and dryer.

Since this leak happened in the middle of the night a 24 hour water restoration emergency service company had already come out to remove all of the water damage drywall, insulation and flooring. They also dried out all of the wood framing and tile flooring. Luckily this water was a cleaned up before any mold could start to grow.

The damage at this home could’ve been so much worse. I’ve seen water lines to washers break with no one home and the
whole house get flooded. These types of plumbing disasters can result in thousands of dollars worth of damage and plenty of frustrations to go along with it!

After the plumber did the necessary repairs to the washers hoses the homeowners also decided since all of the plumbing was exposed. that it was a good time to do some preventive maintenance and replace some of the aging water valves and connections which are usually a pain to get to since they’re behind the drywall in the laundry room.

After arriving at this Merritt Island home to repair the water damaged drywall. I first had to remove all of the drywall screws from the wood framing that were left behind from the water restoration company before I could reinstall new insulation and 1/2″ drywall to the water damaged area.
