Hurricane Sandy – what has to be replaced when damaged by salt water? What are the ramifications of salt water flooding in Long Island homes? South shore Long Island real estate got hammered by salt water flooding. The damage to real estate, fixtures and contents is immense. If the following items were flooded, assume total replacement:

1)      Boiler

2)      Hot water heater

3)      Electrical wiring

4)      Possibly gas pipes

5)      Oil tanks

6)      Some plumbing lines

7)      Insulation/sheetrock

8)      Carpeting

9)      Wood floors (usually)

10)   Cabinets and furniture

The list goes on and on. Consider getting an independent Long Island Home Inspector (Licensed by NY State) to document storm damage for insurance and FEMA reasons. These inspections are documented with photos and professional opinions about specific replacement items based on safety and functionality. Fires, explosions and mold are the ramifications of salt water flooding damage.
