Funny as it may be, he might just go for a job like that. For the structure to fail, it leaves me wondering what kind of shape the foundation is in. I think your advice of a good contractor is the first step. Assuming they had some kind of flood insurance, it should take care of this type of damage. Leaves me wondering if they had a waterline break or something to fill it up that bad. My grandparents house had a washing machine hose break while they were away for the summer. Water ran for a month before anyone noticed, and you can imagine the damage the mold did in the Arizona summer time. With the exception of some items that were in rubber maid tubs everything was lost. On top of everything else, the city sent them a water bill for $10,000.
