SageWater will remove the siding (for exterior access) or drywall (for interior access) as needed to access the current hurricane straps. Once the affected areas are accessible, SageWater crews will complete the engineered repair based on the design of your home. In some cases this may involve removing existing rusted strap hold-downs and/or installing new bolt hold-downs as specified by the engineer. Crews will repair concrete spalling caused by existing rusted strap anchors as required. Finally, our team will complete cosmetic repairs including siding, drywall, and paint to return your home back to its original finished condition, per the settlement protocols.
As part of the non-repose settlement, once you have verified your claim, we will repair the defective materials and restore those areas at no cost to you. Note:If you have upgraded anything in your home from the original construction, and it is determined that it is obstructing the construction repairs, it will be the homeowners responsibility to provide access to the hurricane straps requiring repair in the restricted area.
In the limited instances we need to access the interior of the garage, we will need 3-4 feet cleared all around our work area. Your designated project manager will review this information with you in the pre-construction walk-through.
Yes, we will use the AOAO-specified exterior home color. For interior painting, if you provide a paint sample, it will help us better provide a match. Garage interiors will be finished, primed, and paint ready.
