FEMA Issues Tip List for Flood Insurance Claims

​As we are sure you all remember, a lot of damage was done to homes and businesses in Baton Rouge during the August flooding. FEMA wants to let all of those who have flood insurance who have not yet filed a claim know that time is running out. In order to help those who need to file their claim, a tip list has been produced and posted online.  Wholesale Flooring & Granite wants to help as many of our local residents as we can, as they go about restoring their homes and property, and we are therefore posting the beginning of this information here, with a link to the full list. Here is the start of this important article:

The story goes on to give some useful tips that claimants should know about when filing their claim. We hope this helps to make the process easier for you.

Another way that we are trying to help those in need of replacement flooring, is by offering a great selection of engineered hardwood flooring. We are working as hard as we can to keep our prices as low as possible on all of our flooring systems, and many of those who have shopped with us since August, say that they truly appreciate the work we are doing to help them get back into their homes and businesses.

We are firm believers that anyone who wants wood flooring should look into engineered hardwood flooring, as these flooring systems offer a great many benefits that those living in this area, will find very useful. One benefit, and this is one of the more important ones for those living in humid areas, is that engineered wood floors can resist moisture much better than any solid hardwood flooring on the market today. Moisture and wood do not work well together. With solid hardwood, exposure to high levels of moisture can cause the planks to warp or even split. Because of the manner in which engineered hardwood flooring is produced, moisture is not an issue. You can even have your new engineered flooring installed below grade, which is something you can never do with solid wood floors.

If you need your flooring replaced, for whatever reason, we invite you to visit with us at Wholesale Flooring & Granite. We can show you a great selection of new flooring, including the best engineered hardwood flooring on the market today.
