DROUGHTS, FLOODS, HURRICANES, TSUNAMIS, TORNADOS
We were amongst the luckier of homeowners as we are out of the flood zone by 25 feet...it literally ends at the beginning of our property line. Although the winds were fierce we only sustained minimal damage...a new roof, exterior rain & wind damage unlike others!
Although Matthew hit here on Oct. 8th it wasn't until the 1st week in Feb., 2017 that we were able to replace the roof on our house. Damage in the storm meant a complete tear-off and replacement. The insurance adjusters and contractors were so backed up this was the soonest we could get it done.
|The job gets started...dumpster, shingles, workers!|
|Tear off completed!|
Now our neighbors across the street weren't as lucky. A huge limb came down on & went through their roof and was sticking out the back side by a good 50 feet. Luckily their bedroom was on the other side of the house! The damage was extensive and the cost was exorbitant as evey room in the house suffered damage...cracked walls & ceilings that required being plastered and painted again!
