Lake Worth Water Restoration

By
Home Builder with B/P Services Group, Inc

A reverse osmosis unit gave way one day while the homeowner was out visiting.  They came home to find over three inches of water throughout the entire home.  The water was extracted and the carpets dried out, however, the damage was already done. B/P Services Group, Inc was called in to exam the situation and speak to the homeowners about the restoration process.  24" of drywall was removed around the permiter of the home to insure that all the damaged drywall was removed.  Any damaged furring was replaced and the exposed area was treated with a mold inhibitor microbial covering.  This was to insure there will be no mold issues in the future.

All of the flooring was removed including ceramic tile, carpet and wood flooring.  We replaced the ceramic tile floor with a rectified, porcelain 24" x 24" tile set diagonal in a mortar bed simulating a marble tile installation.

We also replaced the standard baseboards with a 5 1/4" baseboard above the finished floor. 

The kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities were made from particle board and were coming apart due to the water damage.  The new cabinets and vanities have NO particle board whatsoever.  They were made from 3/4" maple plywood construction in B/P Services Lake Worth Cabinet Shop.  A frameless European style cabinet is the standard construction in our shop.  Where others use 3/8" and 1/2" we use 3/4" construction and shelving throughout.  Salice European 6 way adjustable hinges were used on the doors.   The drawer slides are Accuride undermounted EZ-Close.  This is what makes our cabinet construction better than the rest. The value is seen in every aspect of the cabinet installation. They are also priced at what others sell there "cabinets".

The cabinets sit on the newly tiled floor.  This compensates the added height of the mortar tile job which adds 5/8 to 3/4".

The granite was installed using a 1" large bevel edge in place of a standard bullnose.  The sink is a Meltini with offset bowls and the faucet is a Moen pullout stainless steel.  A 1/2 HP Insinkerator garbage disposal was also used. 

 

Below is the custom pantry.  A Lazy Susan double tier on the top and the bottom has (4) Pullout drawers with undermounted Accuride EZ Close Slides.

Oh, by the way, the reverse osmosis system was not reinstalled.  The owner did not want it back in.  They will drink bottled water from now on.

Hi Anthony,

That was some pretty decent damage!  The kitchen looks like it made a full recovery, thanks to your remodeling!

Don't forget me if you learn of anyone moving to "The OC!"
