    secondary flood damage HELP

    Noticed extreme build up of condensation in my home. (Lived here 8 years with no problems and no change to building and contents or lifestyle)

    The area I live in got flooded over a year ago, our garden was like a swimming pool but the water never went above the damp course of our house.

    I talked to the nighbours and we believed we was lucky it never went any higher. Talking to people affected by flooding and web browsing found that a large build up of condensation could be caused by the flood and to check our sub floor of our house ( My lack of knowledge of my own home baffled me! 3ft sub floor!).

    I rung the Insurers and a contracting company came round, sating my sub floor was defiantly flooded but left the condensation issue open! taken other measurements plus humidity levels.

    Got a call from my insurer asking me to get my own builder in to confirm cause of damage (and cost of repairs i presume). Not got a clue who to call cost etc.....

    Has anyone else had similar circumstances and would you inform me of an outcome.

    You need a reputable builder, ask neighbours/friends for recommendations of who they have used in the past, then ask them for a quote

    NHBC is only for new builds, not for building work

    (condensation caused by my sub floor drying).
