Remodeling Flooded Basements and Homes


Harrisburg, PA –  Tropical storms Irene and Lee combined to bring the worst flooding in recent memory to Central PA. This left many basements with standing water and mold and mildew problems. 
Recovering from and repairing flood damage is no small task.  Flooded basements contain potentially dangerous components such as furnaces, heating oil tanks, and washers and dryers.  Once the hazardous materials are removed and the area cleaned, homeowners are left with a shell of their former space.
But massive recent flooding may not spell total disaster for the hundreds of homes now needing repair.
Local real estate developer and home improvement company Triple Crown Corporation has recognized the difficulties flood victims face.
“We’re really trying to help people get their lives and their homes on track,” Jim Vance, Director of Renovations and Design at Triple Crown Corporation, says. "When your home is devastated by a flood, you want to get back to normal as fast as possible.”
“We’re working hard to help the area recover,” Vance adds.
In some hard-hit areas, such as Harrisburg’s Shipoke district, the flooding was not confined to the basement. Many houses in Shipoke saw flooding reach halfway up the first floor.
Triple Crown Corporation’s Remodeling Division led by Jim Vance has the capacity to assist homeowners in more extensive renovations also, including flooring, windows, and siding.  Homeowners are able to see and touch available redesign samples such as cabinetry, countertop, and faucet options at the award-winning Design Center.
Since the grand opening in 2009, Triple Crown Corporation’s Design Center has been an invaluable asset for Jim to work one-on-one with his customers and schedule personal consultations regarding their remodeling and renovation projects.  Considering the difficult schedules of homeowners post Irene and Lee, he is able to work around their schedules.
“If they need us, we’ll be there,” Vance says.
