Outer Banks Hurricane Michael Damage

The Outer Banks dodged a big one with Florence but Michael caught us with our guard down.  The impact of Tropical Storm Michael was contained mostly to soundfront and canalfront homes along the Outer Banks and occurred in the middle of the night.  The storm surge was swift, and the damage was done and over by around 3am.  A sleepless night was had by many.  The aftermath resulted in damaged docks, flooded ground floors, ruined landscaping, and basically a big mess.  Flood water remediation is performed by specialists that are certified in the field.  In most cases, the remediation work is completed by the specialist and the remodeling is completed by a licensed contractor.   If your home, dock, retaining wall, or landscaping was damaged by Michael, please let us know if we can help restore your property.
