Icicles are hanging from a building. SERVPRO of Long Island City is prepared to help resolve your water leak problems. Call us 24/7!

Last night temperatures dropped precipitously for easily the coldest day/night of the 2021-22 winter to-date for the northeast. Many areas of New England, New York & New Jersey will see significant warming over the next few days before another cold front and potential snow storm hits these areas Friday night into Saturday. These temperature swings can lead to property damage. Be aware of ice and snow buildup on your properties which can lead to ice dams and cause structural damage to buildings.

In New York City this maybe especially prevalent in buildings with flat and older roof designs. For those rooftops that already have snow and ice on top of them this quick thawing and freezing eventallows water to seep between shingles and other cracks, freeze and then expand creating an opening that allows warm air from inside the building out and melts ice into water which in turn gets into the building.

If you experience property damage from this extreme weather call us immediately. We can help you to repair water damage and structural damage and offer 24/7 emergency response services.

If you've suffered fire damage in your home, you may be wondering how long it will take to repair the damage. While some minor repairs may be possible in a few days, major damage may take weeks or months. However, no fire damage repair can begin until the site has been cleared by the fire department. This process can take several days or weeks, depending on the jurisdiction. Here's what you need to know about fire damage repair.

First, securing the property is essential. This includes fencing off the perimeter and cleaning up any debris that may have been left behind. Additionally, you should seal off roofs and tarp them off to prevent cross-contamination. After the initial cleanup, you should seek assistance from a professional restoration service. They will work to restore the structure and contents to its pre-fire condition. Afterward, you should contact your insurance company to get the details of your coverage and schedule an estimate.

Typically, the process of fire damage restoration involves reconstruction of the home's structural elements and repairing or replacing damaged contents. Other services may include painting and installing new drywall. Some fire damage restoration companies offer full reconstruction services, while others provide only certain repairs. If you have extensive drywall damage, you may want to consider hiring a company that specializes in removing and storing all traces of smoke and soot. Regardless of the type of fire damage repair you need, Jenkins Restoration can help you rebuild your home or apartment back to its original condition.
