This is a residential (Class 2 | Cat 1) water loss. The drywall and insulation were removed 2′ up the wall along the entire perimeter. These activities were spearheaded by a mitigation crew that executed the mitigation phase in a fairly sloppy way, e.g., the insulation was pulled out of the wall cavities well beyond the flood cut, the drywall was not snapped off, and the cuts were jagged.
We are seeking to highlight the following nuances:
- Drywall by LNFT includes machine texture
- There is a warranted need to include additional SQFT of texture to feather in the new texture with the existing
- The bullnose concessions and best practices
- If the mitigation cut is sloppy and not snapped off, it creates additional work for the repair contractor
- Resolve the seam damage by reciprocating saw action
- R13 Insulation (paper backed vs non-backed)
- Mitigate R13 double dipping
- R13 can be pulled out of the wall and removed beyond the abated drywall SQFT
Room dimensions: 12′ x 12′
This Insight Sheet© exists to clarify how one might invoice for insulation, drywall, and texture when repairing flood cuts. This does not seek to include or make concessions for all equipment and/or activities as it relates to a loss of this nature.
