Hurricane Matthew was a definite wake-up call for Florida residents, including Fort Myers real estate owners. Roof repairs and landscape drainage are underway all over the area since the threat of the storm brought these unresolved property issues to the forefront. But, owners of Fort Myers real estate properties need to not move too fast. Before agreeing for any work to be done on homes or businesses, the right steps need to be taken so that you don’t end up without a contractor and tons of home improvement work left undone. Find out what you can do if left without a contractor.
