We’re told that the water swelled from rivers, lakes, creeks, and tributaries across the area and into people’s homes. Bridges have been washed out. The damage is going to be severe
Los Angeles, Calif. (Vocus) May 5, 2010
In response to the heavy rains and devastating floods in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Mississippi over the weekend, ConstructionDeal.com is opening a special toll free hotline to help homeowners in affected areas find home restoration help. As the flood waters recede, and the evacuated return home, people are going to need to rebuild and ConstructionDeal.com wants to make it easy for them to find flood damage professionals at no cost.
“ConstructionDeal.com matches homeowner to home improvement and repair contractors online, but our concern was that people in the flood areas may not have access to their computers. Many might still be without power, so our goal was to help them find a water damage repair service over the phone,” said Aaron Rose, the Vice President of Marketing for ConstructionDeal.com. “People in Tennessee, Mississippi and Kentucky can call 1-866-832-5758 and talk to a specialist who can help them get in touch with a local contractor to help get their lives back to normal.”
The governor of Tennessee recently declared 52 of 95 counties as disaster areas and damage estimates in the tens of millions of dollars are starting to roll in. More than 13 inches of water fell in the region in only 2 days more than doubling the previous rainfall record, according to the National Weather Service. The Cumberland River, in Nashville, finally crested Monday night at 12 feet over the flood stage, reaching its highest point since 1937.
“We’re told that the water swelled from rivers, lakes, creeks, and tributaries across the area and into people’s homes. Bridges have been washed out. The damage is going to be severe,” Rose added. “One of our big worries for the homeowners in the region will be that many won’t have flood insurance to help get their lives back on track.” Very few homeowners’ insurance policies cover flood damage. People are expected to purchase additional flood insurance and most do not have the coverage they need.
“By setting up this toll free number specifically for these affected states, we wanted to make sure we were able to answer questions and get them the help they need. We have a variety of home repair and restoration contractors in the area and homeowners can use our service – for free – to help get in touch with them. When these disasters strike, it can be very hard to find a quality pro to help meet their needs,” said Aaron Rose.
Homeowners in Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi who had their homes damaged by the flood waters can call 1-866-832-5758 (Mon-Fri, 8am-5pm PST) to talk to a specialist who will assist them in finding local contractors and water damage restoration services.
