We’ve been well versed in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, but more importantly, we’ve also been made aware of the recovery efforts as those affected work to rebuild. Much like any disaster of Sandy’s magnitude, rebuilding isn’t something accomplished individually, but rather as a concerted effort between those affected, charitable organizations, cleanup crews, remediation specialists, restoration contractors, and so on. Nowhere has this been more evident than the New Jersey coast.
“We’re here where the eye hit, and it’s more than I could have ever imagined, let’s put it that way,” said Ed Ryan, whose company, GreenLife Energy Solutions, is based near Atlantic City and services much of coastal New Jersey. GreenLife provides spray foam insulation for residential and commercial structures; HVAC solutions and service; and rehabilitation/restoration construction services. Post-Sandy, the company has been working nonstop to remove flood-damaged floors, drywall, and insulation. The latter has been removed primarily from crawlspaces.
