I have been told that if I make another water claim on my insuracne I will be dropped. I have had several floodings in my kitchen which has warped my pergo flooring with additional concerns of possible mold due to the water being abosobed in the stirofoam cushion under the flooring. I can rip up the flooring myself and have a floor installed for $2.50 s.f. or a $1,000. Will a home repair of this nature and cash used to pay for it be frowned upon by the trustee? Case was filled two weeks ago.

Of course it could be looked at as suspicious. Simply, if you have that much money lying around, it could be used to pay your creditors instead.

However, I would contact your attorney or the trustee and ask them about possible issues. That is the only way to get an accurate answer.

How about rip up the Pergo , use throw rugs and pay some bills with the money that you would have used to buy new Pergo.
