The costs associated with flood damage restoration is completely dependent on the severity of the damage to your property. The final cost is determined by a variety of factors such as: the size of the affected area, whether water has been sitting in that area for 48 hours or longer, and the amount of time the restoration company ends up working on site. The bigger the job, the more you can expect to pay for labor and materials.
The average flood restoration cost is between $6,000 and $10,000. Of course, your restoration may cost as little as $2,500 if all you needed was water extracted from a single room. The final price is determined by several factors, including the scope of the damage, the extent of labor and the cost of materials used in restoration.
