Re: Advice Please: The Great Flood of 2019
Realspeed, good question. Homeowners insurance doesn't cover floods or flooded basements. Those policies are purchased separately. (I have them on my places in Florida). My parents decided long ago because of the elevation of their house, a flood policy wasn't worth the cost. Even with this hundred year event, the repairs are more inexpensive than the policy would have been.
Everything has been torn out and per Barry's helpful suggestion, we are testing the humidity before we commence putting it all back together again.
When I was twenty and we experienced our first hurricane, I felt totally helpless, looking at construction/plumbing/electrical work like it was a visual foreign language. I had no idea what was going on, so I had no idea whether or not the work was being correctly. My dad and brother have set me straight over the years teaching me countless skills and tips to reduce my ignorance.
When the great apocalypse comes, I can at least put a roof over my head and keep the car chugging along until the gas runs out
Thanks again everyone. It's been a difficult but informative endeavor. I need a manicure though
