Life Interrupted: Houston Roofers After Hurricane Harvey


Life Interrupted: Houston Roofers After Hurricane Harvey

For the good people in Texas and Louisiana who were impacted by the onslaught of wind and water from Hurricane Harvey, their lives will never be the same. Even for those who have the will and the resources to rebuild and repair, they have lived through one of the worst natural disasters ever to hit this country, and will be changed just the same.

As I write this, the news channels are all filled around the clock with stories of the pain and struggle as well as the rescues and outreach of folks from all over the country to help our neighbors in distress. Social media is blowing up with requests for contributions to the many agencies on the scene taking care of the immediate needs of the victims. And the millions are pouring in.
