Water Damage Remediation and Installation of New Luxury Vinyl Plank  Flooring.

This flooring installation project in Basking ridge, New Jersey included installation of a little over 600 square feet of LVP flooring after remediation of the water damaged floors. We also did subfloor leveling and trim moldings.

Where to Start When Replacing Water Damaged Flooring

Water damage of any type is terrible and obviously an unexpected and inconvenient expense. It costs an average of $4,500 to homes all over the US and it is the #1 cause of homeowner claims. Water damage from storms like Ida, which recently ravaged many cities across New Jersey, can often be much more severe and often a real tragedy. While water damage is an unfortunate circumstance to have to deal with, Floors Direct knows that water damaged floor restoration doesn’t need to be. The main thing is to get the wet flooring dried out immediately if it can be salvaged, if not, the wet flooring needs to be removed as soon as possible before mold and mildew begin to take hold.

A Fresh New Look With Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring

We help homeowners, like this client in Basking Ridge, NJ who have been hit by water damage, bring their homes flooring back to its original glory.

On this project the water damage remediation work included removing and disposing of the water damaged vinyl flooring and underlayment and the removal of the damaged wood base moldings. Luckily the water receded quickly and therefore there was no sheetrock damage.

Our client indicated that the prior luxury vinyl plank floor was coming apart and cracking in many places. Upon further investigation we assessed that the floor was very uneven and needed to be leveled to meet the necessary tolerances required by the flooring manufacturer. We used the state of the art Mapei Novo Plan 2 plus, this is a self-leveling system. The result was a smooth new basement subfloor.
