It was that encounter that inspired me to write this article because in addition to having their homes seriously damaged they have been thrust into a situation that has become more difficult because instead of using a Restoration Contractor they have chosen instead to use Repair Men and Contractors.

As you can see the devastation is heartbreaking. Three weeks on and you can hardly drive down the street and most of the houses aren’t even being repaired.
