This is a residential (Class 3 | Cat 1) water loss. The supply line failed in the bathroom located on the 3rd floor of a beach house while the property owners were away on holiday. An alert neighbor noticed water pouring out of the second story sliding glass door and they contacted a restoration contractor that was well known for servicing those within the gated community. When the contractor entered the property they observed a war-zone-like scene – the water must have been running for days unencumbered. The water had affected all three levels and even the elevator shaft had several feet of standing water. The damage associated with this large-loss was devastating. As a natural extension of this, the granite was destroyed in the kitchen when the upper cabinets fell onto the countertop.

This was a several million dollar property that displayed high-grade materials and fixtures. We are going to explore what it takes to restore a granite countertop of this nature.

This Insight Sheet© exists to clarify how one might invoice for a granite countertop. This does not seek to include or make concessions for all equipment and/or activities as it relates to a loss of this nature.

Slide 12: From time to time, actually fairly often, you will encounter not metal support brackets for a countertop but corbels: FNCCBLRS / FNCCBL +, <, >, >+ / PNTCBL 2, S, 1SP, 2SP, S1. Occasionally, even masonry or ornamental iron corbels. Proceed accordingly.
