water damage on wood floorThere is nothing more frustrating than noticing water damage on wood floors. People tend to install wood flooring in their homes due to their reliability, strength and longevity. However, the evil combatant to wood floors is water – and the damage it produces. But don’t fret, repairing water damage on wooden flooring is actually not as hard as it might seem. In fact, there are three simple steps that even the novice home owner can complete to begin the repair process.

1: Stop The Source Of The Water Leak & Remove Standing Water

If the wood floors were damaged by water, whether it was flood damage, broken water pipes inside your home or if the water heater broke, the first step in repairing the wood flooring after the leak is stopped or fixed is to remove any standing water, inspect the damage and create a plan of attack. In order to make sure the wood flooring is dried, you should use the following tools to help expedite the process:

  • Open any windows and doors to allow fresh air to enter the structure and discourage the growth of any bacteria or microorganisms
  • Make sure there are no electrical shock hazards that present itself if there is standing water, remove any unnecessary extension cords, etc., and remove any furniture and contents to expose the entire floor
  • Use towels and/or a wet/dry shop-vac to initially soak up any standing water and prevent any secondary damage as required on your insurance policy

Mission Accomplished at Jared Allen’s Night Ops III Charity Golf Tournament

Jared Allen's Night Ops III Charity Golf Tournament

Thank you to Amanda, Dylan, and Jared for inviting us out to Jared Allen’s Homes For Wounded Warriors Night Ops III Charity Golf Tournament at the Ancala Country Club on Saturday May 19th.

It was really great to see so much support for our wounded veteran soldiers such as our friend Joshua Bullis and those like him who have returned from the battlefield in need of a home especially suited for them.  Peak One Builders & Restoration is proud to be a part of this cause, so we certainly commend Jared Allen for his vision, dedication, and using his celebrity status in such a positive way which brings more awareness to the community along with the resources to make a difference to some of those who have sacrificed for all of us. 

Celebrities such as Larry Fitzgerald, Johnny Knoxville, Jason “Wee-Man” Acuna, Eric Christian Olsen, James Otto, Jay Glazier, and more participated in the event, which also sometimes subjected them to being ordered by US Soldiers to do pushups or situps at the tee box if required.  The tournament was at night and was aided by glow in the dark golf balls, which was a sight to see.  Afterward a contest broke out at the 280 foot slip and slide, which was certainly entertaining, but now having seen a bunch of guys squirt dish soap on themselves before their turn on the slide…I’m not quite sure there was a winner.

Thanks again to Jared Allen’s Homes For Wounded Warriors and we look forward to Night Ops IV next year!

Peak One Builders Teams Up With Jared Allen’s Homes For Wounded Warriors and Sundt Construction to Help a Local Veteran Soldier!

Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors (JAH4WW), a 501c3 public charity, is honored to announce the commencement of another home remodel for an injured United States Soldier.

JAH4WW is a non-profit organization created for the sole purpose of raising money to build or modify the homes of America’s injured Military Veterans so that they are handicap accessible and comfortable.  Jared Allen of the Minnesota Vikings formed the organization in 2009 after he returned home from his USO Tour to U.S. Military Bases in the Middle East.

JAH4WW has chosen the Phoenix, Arizona native PFC. Joshua Bullis as the next recipient for home renovations.  In April 2010, Bullis deployed to the Kandahar province in southern Afghanistan with the 595th Sapper Company, 2nd Engineer Battalion. As combat engineers, Bullis and the other Soldiers in the unit were responsible for constructing roads and bridges and clearing routes, which made it possible for other troops to travel throughout the region. While on a routine foot patrol through an Afghan village, PFC. Joshua Bullis stepped on a buried improvised explosive device (IED).  As a result of the blast, both of his legs were amputated above his knee, as was his left arm above the elbow.

PFC. Joshua Bullis will need a complete home remodel which includes all new flooring for wheelchair accessibility, ramps in every entrance, custom bathrooms and kitchen, wider doors and hallways, alterations to the garage to allow easy access from his custom vehicle, and an outdoor patio.

Peak One Builders & Restoration is proud to join forces with Jared Allen’s Homes For Wounded Warriors and help out one of our own.  This is a great cause to be a part of, and if you are interested in finding out more about it or how you can help then follow this link .

Thank You to Speedpro Imaging for Our New Vehicle Graphics!

Pinnacle Living 2 (web) copy

Peak One Builders & Restoration would like to thank Speedpro Imaging for such an excellent job on the vinyl graphics they applied to the newest addition to our fleet. 

We met Kristen of Speedpro at a recent event with the North Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce, so we wanted to give them a try.  During our consultation we were so pleased to find out that they are also a Veteran Owned and Operated company!  Borg Siburg and his wife both served our country with the US Army as well, so it’s really a natual partnership between Peak One and Speedpro Imaging.  Their graphic artist named Dan did a wonderful job creating the vinyl and having it applied in about an hour and a half!

We really couldn’t be happier with the job that they did and for the price that they did it for, so for vinyl printing, vehicle wraps, trade show displays, or any other large graphics call Kristen at (480) 998-1510 and tell her that Peak One put in a good word for them…
