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.
We’ve prevented condominiums from collapsing into the ocean after a storm by installing military-grade barriers. 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 tsays 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.
