Taking Advantage of Necessary Water Damage Repairs to Make a Few Upgrades

The recent tropical storms and hurricanes have reminded everyone that water damage is a common occurrence in Florida. If your home has recently sustained water damage, it might be a good opportunity to get some upgrades and renovations you’ve been putting off. Here are a few upgrades you can easily incorporate into your water damage repair project.

Flooring Upgrades

If any room in your home was immersed in water, even just an inch or two, you will likely need to replace the flooring. Carpets will definitely need to be replaced, as well as cheaper flooring materials like linoleum or other synthetic flooring. 

Replacing your floors with hardwood or tile, depending on the room, will make it easier to handle clean up and reduce repair costs in the event of another storm.

Window Upgrades

Often, homes will develop major leaks around the windows as seals break under pressure. The wall may need to be rebuilt. Even though your windows may be able to be reused, replacing them with more durable impact windows could save repair costs in the future.

Built-In Shelves and Cabinets

Depending on how long water sat in the home, the wall materials could need to be replaced. If this is the case for your home, you could take advantage of this to have built-in shelves or cabinets installed as part of the wall. This is great in family rooms and children’s playrooms.
