Upon returning home, the homeowner discovered that their home had been completely damaged by a burst pipe. Our team provided our mitigation and restoration services.
The ceiling had collapsed in the kitchen, garage, living and dining room.
Our team removed all damaged items from the home and installed air movers and dehumidifiers to begin the drying process. As claim specialists, we ensure that we document every step we take. Our goal is to ensure that their home is restored to its previous state and that their insurance covers all damages caused by factors beyond their control, such as the burst pipe in this case. After mitigation had been completed, we began to schedule the restoration work.
As a homeowner, one of the things you can do is make upgrades. It's important to note that upgrades come at an out-of-pocket cost. Your insurance covers the cost of the material you had. If you originally had laminate countertops then your insurance will cover the cost of replacing them with the same material. However, if you would like to upgrade to a more expensive option such as quartz, you will be required to pay the difference in cost.
In this particular case, the homeowner decided he wanted to do upgrades to the materials that were going to be installed. Take a look at the before and after. Starting with the kitchen. New cabinets, tile backsplash, quartz countertop and new light fixtures.
Previously, all bedrooms, family room, and dining room were carpeted. The client decided to upgrade by installing LVP flooring in the family and dining room.
Carpet was replaced in the bedrooms and stairs. New tile was installed in the entrance.
As for the bathrooms, new tile was installed on the shower walls and on bathroom floors.
New light fixtures and faucets were installed as well.
