Warping of the Walls by Water Damage

There are various reasons for walls to warp, and each reason is based on the type of wall you have. As a result, it is of extreme significance to investigate the potential underlying issues at play. When it absorbs an excessive amount of water, the sheetrock behind the wall will begin to bend and twist, which will result in the wall becoming warped.

Walls that are bowing or buckled almost always indicate that there is water damage elsewhere in the home. Walls that have been warped to an excessive degree might cause major structural damage, which will need substantial repair work and be expensive. Don't be concerned! Our crews at KW Restoration & Construction-Colorado Springs can help!

Causes & Consequences of Warped Walls

Warped walls represent a severe consequence of water damage. Their presence leads to compromised wall integrity & structural stability. Common issues handled successfully by KW technicians include:

  • The wall's look and texturing are destroyed.
  • The sheetrock and wall supports are exposed to additional damage.
  • The floor & ceiling could be damaged as the wall deteriorates.
  • The overall strength & stability of your structure is compromised.

What Should Be Done When Warped Walls Occur?

While an easy patching effort may cover surface flaws temporarily, it will not fix the bigger problems associated with the structural stability of your home or office deteriorating because of water damage. These issues require repair & restoration services, which our IICRC-certified crews can provide to customers throughout our Rocky Mountain service area. You must address the root cause of the water damage to properly fix your structure.

Common Water Damage Issus That Can Cause Warped Walls at Your Home or Office

  • Sewage Backups: When drains get blocked, a sewage cleanup that requires clean-up and restoration services may need to be performed. The emission of toxic black water or gray water during a sewage leak can cause major water damage.
  • Structure Damage: When your home or office has been impacted by water damage, the structure may be impacted to the point it is dangerous to inhabit until restoration occurs.
  • Broken/Burst Pipes: When a pipe in your house has burst, it is imperative to have it repaired as soon as possible in order to avoid further water damage.
  • Stuck Gutters: When debris builds up in your gutters, it can prevent water from flowing through them. This will result in water pooling on top of your roof, with the overflow pooling at your foundation. Both issues can trigger major structural damage.

KW Construction has now provided us with two high quality renovations, one in 2006 and the other in 2020. In both cases, the craftsmanship, attention to detail, and execution were exceptional. It is rare to go through such a process and come out on the other side with 100% satisfaction.
