Rehabbing Flooded Houses is a guidebook for professional builders and contractors rehabbing flooded single-family houses. Homes flood for a variety of reasons (overflowing rivers, high coastal waves, hurricanes, etc.) but the methods for determining how badly the building has been damaged and how to repair it are relatively similar no matter where you are working. The emphasis in this guidebook is on safe practices and the most important activities in the rehab process. This guidebook is bilingual in English and Spanish.
