Flood Damage Repairs – how Paradigm can help to restore sense

Flood damage repairs aren’t something to be taken lightly. Although at Paradigm, we consistently do our best never to “make a drama out of a crisis” – that great insurance company slogan from the late 1980s – we know that flood damage can be a pretty dramatic event in anyone’s life.

Flooded Homes

At Paradigm Reinstatements, we know that when you suddenly find yourself up to your knees in water your living room or your board room, things can feel really desperate and you might imagine that you’ll never get your life back in order again. But it needn’t be that way.

We’re not saying that flood damage repairs are easy. They’re not. And any flood is distressing and disruptive. All of that said, with the right team taking care of your flood damage repairs, you know you can restore order quickly and painlessly.

Here is an example where Paradigm helped restore order after a flood, with stress-free flood damage repairs.

An idyllic detached cottage in Ballater

In 2015, the small Deeside village of Ballater became overwhelmed by the River Dee. Over 300 properties in the village were damaged and this gave rise to a huge clear up. On this page of our website, you can see the before and after scenes following the flood and the reinstatement.

With a metre of water inside this property, there wasn’t much that escaped the effects of this flood. Add to that the freezing temperatures at the time and you’d be forgiven for feeling that all was lost. But with time to dry out and then the right reinstatement work, this beautiful property was soon back to its stylish and homely glory. In fact, this property, thanks to Paradigm’s efficiency was back to normal way ahead of many of the other damaged properties in the area.

Here’s what the client had to say:

"Dear David, I wanted to say thank you for the work your company carried out on my house after the flooding in Dec 2015. Everything you said you would do was done and it was done when you said it would be. Please extend our thanks to all your team, the lads who worked on my house were wonderful, not one of them let you down. Scottie, Nick 1 & Nick 2, Willie and Jamie were always polite and worked hard to get me home with as little stress as possible. I have told the whole village how lucky I was to have had your company. With my grateful thanks, Alison Whyte."
