What You May Not Realize About Bathroom Remodeling and Water Damage

Tulip-Garden
  When we make the decision to remodel our homes, it's because we want positive change. For some, this is easily accomplished, but for others, changing up the old can reveal a dark, nasty mess underneath. In the case of bathroom remodels this is especially true. Homeowners who contract a remodeling project can find mold and water damage underneath layers of tile, in the plumbing, and even in the walls! This is no reason to delay your remodeling dreams! In fact, Menold Remodeling Services loves handling projects like this because we are highly experienced in both restoration and remodeling services. We truly remodel the foundation and the surface of homes, especially the bathroom. A modern bathroom is not possible without comprehensive construction. We will clean up existing water and mold damage and we don't stop there; we also take necessary steps to prevent future water and mold from wrecking your home.

Storm Damage Restoration in Bloomington-Normal, IL

Storm Damage Restoration in Bloomington-Normal, IL

The tornado that destroyed a large swath of Washington, IL, on November 17, 2013, was a stark reminder to all Central Illinois residents of how powerful storms can change lives in a moment’s notice. Though the Bloomington-Normal, IL, area escaped the smaller town’s fate, it still suffered extensive hail damage as pellets of frozen rain measuring as large as four inches in diameter, or the size of a softball, pelted the community. Bloomington-Normal also required tree damage repair as high winds wreaked havoc across the city.

 

In terms of the amount of harm caused, the horrific tornado in Washington may have been a fairly uncommon event. Hail damage is not. Hail causes $1 billion in lost property and crops each year. In 2014, Illinois reported the second highest number of hail damage claims in the country. There are things you can do, however, to limit the damage hail can cause to you and your property. Here are some safety tips from the National Weather Service:
