won't be around. not sure about newsletter, not sure about week.
my basement is in ground unfortunately, have egress windows. we get
about 8 inches of ran, the egress window plugged up and I'm
guessing filled up with water since the drain wasn't working
properly. The force of the window busted the glass and all flooded
into the basement, everything flooded. Not sure what I'm going to
do yet but clearly I can't focus on the market
Sad to hear Matt, Good luck to you and your family
Tough situation. Good luck with the restoration, Matt.
Sorry that your basement is flooded. Crossing fingers that
you can get remediation on site to remove the
yeah I mean, Insurance is at the moment saying they won't cover
it saying it's seepage, which is bullshit, if a pipe burst
downstairs their would cover, I will try to fight that, but in the
mean time, have a big crew here, gonna be a big mess for a long
time, I think everything has to come out from the basement, and
that's why I do my computer work, newsletters etc, anyway beyond
frustrating. Steve will be doing newsletter tonight, but even when
I do them this week they are probably gonna be short and to the
point guys, I"m sure you will understand
Had something similar to this a few years ago here in Las Vegas.
Totally BS'd the insurance wouldn't cover it. Only a
flood policy would have covered it because it came from outside the
walls. I really sucks. Best thing you can do is put a
big plastic cover or build a cover over that egress window well to
prevent a recurrence.
yeah problem is not rain coming from the open top - it's around
the sides, sink holes formed.
Just thinking maybe your rain gutters are plugged and the water
is just flowing over the top of them and down beside the house
instead of into the rain spouts and away from the house.
nah - no trees over, house next door was built maybe a year ago,
they built it up higher, so hill slopes right to our house, all the
water runs down. I have a landscaper gonna do a French Drain
tomorrow or Wed to address the drainage issue. Also we had like 7
inches of rain last night. The thing is, with climate these
days seems like most rains are torrential downpours vs slow and
well i just came say this man that sucks! i guess you dont have
flood insurance most don't...i just ahd a sump system installed at
my sons house in PA. did it before i turned basement into living
area...got a good lawyer have him write a letter sometimes makes a
so very sorry Matt. Some have a sump pump and a hydraulic
backup pump hooked up to the drinking water supply.
Sorry Matt -- good luck on getting yourself sorted out. Your
insurance agent should be your best friend now. They should send a
remediation company over ASAP to start the whole process.
So sorry to hear that Matt, stay strong!
Probably doesn't help but the same thing happened to my boss
this morning, pipe burst basement flooded. He lives in
Sorry to hear about this Matt. Water is the worst!
Just spoke with Matt - tough situation with his basement flooded
overnight. Clearly, he will need to spend time dealing with
this major issue and thus will be away until resolved. I will
review today's action and put out a newsletter tonight. Best
wishes to Matt and his family.
Sorry to hear this Matt.
Oh Brother !!!
