Made Rite to Give Back to Hurricane Damaged Areas

Hurricane Irma damaged thousands of homes in Florida and Texas. Homeowners and businesses returned to their weather ravaged property only to find them damaged and flooded. Many people evacuated leaving everything they valued at home only to return and find it damaged or gone.

Hurricane Irma damaged thousands of homes in Florida and Texas. Homeowners and businesses returned to their weather ravaged property only to find them damaged and flooded. Many people evacuated leaving everything they valued at home only to return and find it damaged or gone.

While recovery might take long, it is being facilitated by generous donations from contractors and construction services. Made-Rite for instance has decided to donate its Snap-On baseboards for the hurricane effort to Habitat for Humanity Houston. It is also offering property owners 50% off it suggested retail price for homes / businesses in the affected areas. Currently, they plan on serving Florida, Texas, Louisiana and Georgia with their generous donation.

The company hopes that the easy to install baseboards can be used to help efforts in restoring homes that are not only sturdy, but can also help prevent pest and mold issues – 2 issues that are highly likely post-hurricane.

Benefits of Made Rite’s Snap-On Baseboards

Snap-on Baseboards from Made Rite are designed for the convenience and comfort of homeowners. Unlike regular baseboards that do not provide leverage, these have a system that boasts a double channel. This is located right behind the external baseboard profile that attaches right onto the one inside.

This makes a hidden channel that can be used to hide unsightly wiring and since it is made of PVC, it does nothing to damage the walls. In other words, once these are installed, Made Rite’s Snap-on Baseboards can last for years.

The modular design also allows home owners and pest control services to detect what is going on inside walls. One of the problems that Snap-on baseboards can nip in the bud is the infestation of subterranean termites and cockroaches. These are hard to detect since these enter homes completely unseen. So, unless home owners see signs of structural damage, these can be hard to spot.

By then, it is too late and costly repairs to structural members will be needed. With recent flooding in Florida and surrounding areas due to Hurricane Irma, these pests can find the ideal breeding ground in gutted homes once the water recedes. That can be prevented with baseboards that can be snapped off easily for termite inspection.

The water proof PVC baseboards are easy to install and remove. As mentioned before, these are also designed to hide messy wiring (such as Cat 5 and Romex) in not only homes, but also in restaurants and hotels. The channel it creates has enough space to allow this wiring to run through unseen which results in a neat and clean look.

The system can be used in 2 ways depending on wiring. Home owners and contractors can either staple the wiring to the wall and snap the baseboards in place or create a cavity in the drywall to access the inner walls. In both cases, the baseboards can be clipped on without damaging the structure.

Most homes that are still intact after the hurricane have suffered structural damage on the ground level. To facilitate future reconstruction, Made Rite’s Snap-on Baseboards are ideal. You can know inspect, dry out the walls and monitor treatment if necessary.
