I moved into my first home about a year before I flooded the basement. How did I flood my basement? Well, that's a long story, but it involves do-it-yourself home improvements and a lack of knowledge. After the basement was flooded, I had to learn a whole lot more about home repair very quickly. I attempted to make the repairs on my own, but quickly realized that I was in way over my head. I contacted a damage repair contractor and had the work done professionally. Although I didn't do the work myself, I learned a lot for the next time I cause my basement to fill with water. Visit my blog to learn what I did.
