After a hurricane the absolute last thing you want to do is wait on contractors to show up while your building stays exposed to the elements. We’ve seen it many times: after a storm there are things that must be done to keep further damage from happening – from tarping roofs, shoring up erosion, covering broken windows to emergency electrical damage repair. It is essential to stop further damage and keep other threats out of the home – from thieves to wild animals.
We’ve helped prevent condominiums from collapsing into the ocean after a storm by installing military-grade barriers that were quite reasonable in cost considering the potential problems that would have happened had they not been installed.
Immediately after the storm is the most critical time to prevent further damage. It is also the most dangerous – hazardous working conditions, contractors from out of town, and tons of stress. With this in mind, homeowners will hire anyone that tells them they will get on the job soon. Usually a ‘fly-by-night’ contractor from out of town promises to get on the job immediately, gets a hefty deposit and then disappears. Days pass, then a week and no one has shown up. Meanwhile the house sustains further damage. It is critical to work with licensed, insured, reputable contractors at all times, but especially after a hurricane or other event.
After a hurricane we bring in all employees from other areas. We work hard to limit after-the-storm damage for our clients, usually working around the clock. We also work closely with insurance carriers to make sure you get paid what you are owed for the damage to your building.
If you ever find yourself in this situation don’t hesitate to call Florida General Construction Inc. We will not raise our prices to take advantage of people. We will not ask for a deposit before work is underway. We follow the same guidelines, construction principles and ethical standards regardless of when and where we are working.
