Water pipe in ceiling broke - need advice
I have a one story house in the upper midwest. Last December we had a power outage for 4 days and my water pipes burst (no basement so the pipe had been run through the attic). Of course I called the insurance company right away, however, was after hours so no one came until the next afternoon. Since I had about 3 inches of water in the laundry room and kitchen I was advised by my power company to have the power disconnected (which they did). When the adjustor arrived he made arrangements with an electrician to come look things over before having power restored. Also that night he had a cleaning company come and remove most of the carpet (only the ones that were wet). Once the power was restored (almost one week later) the cleaning company brought over their dehumidifier. About four weeks later the cleaning company and contractor assured me that all the moisture had been removed and the house was ready for repairs.
Now, here is my question - Since the water came from the attic and rained down into the kitchen and laundry room I am sure there must be water IN the walls on the first floor. The cleaning company drilled holes in one of the walls for ventilation (I am told that the other wall in the kitchen is solid). Although the major water was confined to the kitchen and laundry room they did repair all the cracks in the walls and ceilings of every room in the house. Everything has been re-textured and repainted. Now, in the kitchen and laundry room the paint is bubbling and there are fresh cracks. The adjustor and contractor assure me that everything is OK and that there is no water in the walls (I can understand this coming from the adjustor but I chose the contractor so I can't see why he would have reason to rush through the job and not do things right). The ceiling in the laundry room had been repaired, textured and painted and water spots came through so they put another coat of Kilz on it. The solid wall in the kitchen has rust spots coming through. The contractor told me this is because they used metal lathes in the wall.
They would not pay for the replacing of the other carpets, however, they will pay for cleaning them due to mildew. With that much water in the house for a week shouldn't they have to replace all the carpet?
We live in a rural area and have no access to the larger water disaster companies. Where can I find some good advice for these repairs? How can we be sure that in a few months things won't bubble and peel again? Or worse, that the house will be falling apart?
