Steam Boiler Installer in Central Jersey?

Options
Need a new boiler installed as a result of Ida.  It was such a pain getting it installed right the first time, so looking to find someone who knows steam.  The iron piping should be fine, water didn’t get that high.  Anyone have any contacts please let me know.  Thanks in advance!

    Do you really need a new boiler? I'm ignorant of the codes but I can't imagine why in the world a replacement of at most the burners and gas valve (or the equivalent oil parts if oil fired) would be necessary.

    @ethicalpaul So, my insurance is paying for it. I agree that I probably don't need one, but I do have concerns about long-term issues with the flooding like corrosion and rust. Also, it was sewer water, so that adds to the concerns.

    @EzzyT Thank you! Still waiting on remediation, so it'll likely be at least another 2 weeks before I'm in a place to replace it. Also, I just want to make sure whether my insurance company is going to try to salvage it instead of replacing it. But I'll reach out then.

    I think the question is more if all those service parts and the labor to clean up everything and install them is less than just replacing the boiler

    How do you clean the fiberglass insulation? It has to be replaced.

    If the controls, burners, even the cabinet got wet the unit gets replaced, Hugh liability issue trying to clean it up!

    I was thinking of that as one of the parts that is going to cost a lot to buy as a factory cut part and going to take a lot of labor to replace.
