We often get phone calls from prospective home buyers who are looking to get a ballpark estimate of water damage repairs or restoration.
In this brief article we will give you an idea of what to consider while asking for estimates. The list of variables is a long one.
Water Damage Repairs – How Much Does It Cost?
Without looking at the property it is next to impossible to give even the ball park figure.
The costs of water damage repairs vary widely depending on the following factors:
The size of the damaged area. The size is usually measured in square feet and the larger the area the more expensive the repairs, all other things being equal.
Basic materials costs. Depending on whether you are restoring hardwood floors or repairing a water-damaged ceiling, the cost will vary.
The source of water that caused the damage. Clean water from a faucet versus kitchen wastewater or laundry water, or sewage water, or flood water – they all require different treatments which would affect the cost of repairs.
The degree of water damage – is the ceiling caving in or is there just a water spot on it?
If you or somebody you know need to get a precise estimate of water damage restoration and the cost of water damage repairs, your best bet is to contact a reputable, licensed, bonded and insured water damage restoration professional company. Remember, water damage is not only a cosmetic issue, or potentially a structural issue related to the building – when not treated properly it could cause serious health concerns.
