First a thorough assessment of the structure is conducted to identify current and future problem areas. Then, all affected areas will be removed, rebuilt and refinished to look as good as new. Restoration doesn't have to be a hassle, but there are a few key things to keep in mind when restoring a building in Calgary.

Climate

Calgary experiences a dry and humid continental climate depending on the season. Humidity can promote mold and mildew growth in building structures so it is important to make sure that the restoring process is handled with this in mind and that you hire professionals who understand the local climate.

Common Problems

If your home has experienced flood damage, it could take weeks for your home to thoroughly dry before beginning the restoration process. It is crucial for the structure of your home to dry completely before any repair work is done because if there are any parts of the structure left with moisture in them, this could cause mold to spread to the newly renovated areas and will end up costing you more money in the long run.

The Right Time

Most of the rainfall in Calgary occurs during the early to mid summer months so it is a good idea to plan your restoration process for late summer if at all possible. In the Winter, there can be heavy snow fall which can cause a relative humidity of 55%. The summer months can experience an average of 45% relative humidity which is more ideal for restoration. Most of the snowfall is known to occur in the month of March and July is known to have less rainfall and snow than other month throughout the year.
