Spring Brings Flooded Basements

Water Extractions in Minnesota

April showers bring May flowers, but they also bring flooded basements. This can be especially problematic if you are managing a portfolio of foreclosed properties.

No good property preservation contractor can truly say that they’ve “seen it all.” Every property presents its own challenges, whether it’s removing a heavy safe from a basement, disposing of hundreds of old tires, or addressing biohazards.

Ideally, your house flip is going to be a quick matter of applying a new paint job, maybe putting in new carpet, and selling the home for a fair price that allows for profit to accommodate your time and effort toward getting it ready.

The Knowledge and Experience of a General Contractor


When you have a construction project, whether repairs or renovations, you have the options to do it yourself, hire a local handy man, or hire a licensed contractor.

A handy man may be able to do many jobs that come up, but likely doesn’t have the same experience and licensure as a general contractor. The contractor, in addition to the license and insurance, brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the job to get it done quickly and efficiently the first time.
