WATER DAMAGE TO RV TRAVEL TRAILER!!!! YOU MUST READ THIS!!!

Hello...  I'm a new travel trailer owner and I was ripped off on my trailer.  I'm gonna share my story hoping this will never happen to you.  I purchased by trailer on EBay, from Bent's RV in Louisana, and had to drive 700 miles to go get it.  When I arrived the techs were inside the trailer "prepping it".  The inside smelled very strong of disinfectant.  I was assured by the seller, that the trailer was fixed where needed and ready for camping.  I drove it home and within a couple days, the disinfectant smell was replaced with a mildew smell.  I contacted the seller with no recourse then filed a claim with EBay.  Ebay's  VPP reimbursed me for the damage. 
I hired a rv repair man near where I work, Eric Kramer.  He was supposed to remove all the rotted framing, ceiling and walls.  He had the trailer for over 3 weeks.  I paid him $2000.  The whole restoration can be viewed on YouTube.

I took a trip to Wyoming and back, and a couple weeks after I came home, I found a huge water/mildew stain on my new ceiling.  I was so upset, I took a claw hammer to it.  It turned out that my $2000 repair was a joke,  He had done nothing more than nail a couple short 1 by 2's to the rotted framing.  The trip forced the ceiling to start collapsing make the water leak worse.  My neighbor (Don) had been laid off for awhile, (he's a 25 year carpenter) and I asked him to take a look and let me know if it can be fixed.  He tackled the job, ended up removing the whole roof, rubber and all, then rebuilding it with arched 2 x 6's, new luan board and rubber.

I'm so pleased with his work, that I asked him if I can spread the word.  So I'm helping him out with starting a new RV Travel Trailer rebuild business.  Believe me, the RV repair persons are few and far between and expensive!  Don does an excellent job, fast, and inexpensive.
So if you have rotted wood in your trailer, I'm taking appointments.  Call (636)235-2586

  4. Hello! I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about water damage in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about water damage. Keep it up! This is a good read.
    Category 1 Water refers to a source of water that does not pose substantial threat to humans and classified as "Clean Water". Examples are broken water supply lines, tub or sink overflows or appliance malfunctions that involves water supply lines.
    Regardless of the cause of your water damage, it’s important to call a company that will come to your house immediately. The water may have stopped flowing into your home, but the damage and loss will only get worse until a professional begins restoration services.

  10. Nice I also share with you something hope this helpful for you my friends. I've crunched these numbers and concluded that, in general, it's cost effective to fix a newer, more expensive device and dump an older device that is slower and may not run the latest version of iOS. This isn't a hard and fast rule as there are times you may want to keep the older device because it has data on it that you don't want to lose. This happened to me earlier this year when my original iPad stopped charging. It cost me $50 in parts and my own labor to fix the three-year-old tablet, but I didn't want to lose the photos stored on it. Check it out thanks.

  12. Once the treatment has taken place and the interior is totally dry we can provide you with a certificate to say that we have removed and treated the area for mould and dried the place to below 16%. To do this we would send swab samples to our lab for testing and use moisture meters on walls , floors , timbers, etc. Flood Restoration
