Finding Local Remodeling Contractor Naperville
Did you experience basement flooding from the floods that affected the Chicagoland area? Cities such as Naperville, Lisle, Oak Brook, and Plainfield were all affected. Many homeowners have already called in a company such as ServiceMaster to handle immediate needs. Let’s go over some of the steps needed to prepare your basement:
Immediate Flooding Needs
- Have water pumped out of your basement
- Have a company, such as ServiceMaster, come in and remove water-logged drywall, baseboard, and flooring
Next Step to Fix Your Flooded Basement
- Call for estimates on replacing your drywall, baseboards, flooring, and any electrical problems.
- Check with your local municipalities to see if FEMA is providing assistance and your homeowner’s insurance carrier
What is a Storm Chaser? They are companies in another state and follow the weather patterns. Once they realize that this area was hit hard with flooding, they will set up shop in the Naperville, Plainfield, Oak Brook area with an 800 number and a P.O. Box. Some of these companies probably offer great work and are just trying to earn an honest living. The problem arises once they leave the State of Illinois in 6 months and if you have any problems with the work performed. You have no way to reach them because they are off to another state working on the next storm damages.
