2017 is over, but damages caused by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma continue to impact the construction industry. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma caused between $150 billion and $200 billion in property damages to Texas and Florida according to a recent estimate from Moody's Analytics. Both states were already facing critical labor shortages prior to the storms. Costs to entice workers to relocate to storm-ravaged areas, combined with escalating material costs, are being felt by both the private and public sectors.
