When water damage happened to your Tulsa home, whether from a broken pipe, severe weather, or even an appliance leak, your first thought might be how much restoration is going to cost. That’s a tough question because it is dependent on several different factors. Since each water damage emergency is different, here are some of the factors that will affect the cost of water damage restoration:
There are three types of water classifications used to categorize water damage, and each comes with its own processes for restoration.
The level of water damage helps to identify the amount of water that has affected your home. The more water present, the worse the damage will be. The worse the damage is, the more money restoration costs. There are 4 levels of water damage, level 1 being the least amount of absorption of water by materials and level 4 being major flooding with max absorption of water by affected materials. Since level 4 often requires replacement of materials, it is the most expensive to restore. Prices for these categories will range anywhere between $3 and $10 per square foot.
Costs for water damage restoration are broken down by square footage, so it is no surprise that the size of the damaged area will directly affect the cost. The larger the damaged area, the more expensive restoration will be. Some good number estimates that can help you prepare for the cost of water damage are:
