Well we are to the last part, the finish work of the project.
We painted and installed new flooring.
We were able to partner with another company and raise some money, gift cards and other financial help. We also were able to get a substantial amount of furniture donated for the home.
This project couldn't have been completed without the huge amount of work and effort put into this project by Ryan Echols and Ben Holm.
They are the next generation of people trying to make a difference...
So in closing, with all the negative talk and finger pointing on social media, try not to get caught up in it.
Be the change you want to see. Go out and make a difference... You don't have to save the world, you can just save one person....
It's not always about the money.....
This is the rebuilding part of Mr Hero's home... As you can see it was quite extensive. The house had to be jacked and supported while supports were installed and the floor joists were installed . Then we covered with plywood to create floors.
We also had to redo the sill plates as the home was no longer attached to the foundation.
We also had to redo some of the ceilings do to water damage and cracking of walls do to jacking of house for repair....
This is after the mold remediation. Time to gut and rebuild. In some of the pictures you are seeing the entire floor and floor joists gone due to mold and rot..
With all the craziness going on in the world, I'm always suggesting to friends and employes to be the change in the world they want to see. Here at PDR we recently had the opportunity to give back in a big way...
We always go above and beyond to help our customers but this was a chance to make a difference in a verteren's life.
William Hero is an 83 year old veteran. He lives in New Jersey.
The combination of getting older and limited income has made his living situation difficult to say the least...
His house had deteriorated to the point where it was uninhabitable. He had a lot of water damage, which in turn caused a mold problem and substantial structural decay...
We were approached by a concerned party about our experience in mold remediation and what could be down to help. I set up an inspection.
During the inspection I almost fell through his bedroom floor.... I had never been in a home where the structure was so compromised.
During our conversation with his caretakers, we discussed that even remediating the mold, the problem was it still wasn't safe for him to live there.
We came up what would it take to make this livable for him.
So PDR offered our service to help return a veteran to his home.
