Post-Ian Roof Work Underway On Two CHR Properties

Important roof work began last week on two of the Community Housing & Resources properties, Mahogany Way and Woodhaven. PRG Roofing and Construction, Fort Myers, is doing the work which will allow the island’s affordable housing organization continue interior restorations on those properties without delays. CHR Executive Director Melissa Rice said she is “thrilled to see this happening.”

“PRG had completed the tear off and dry in on all seven duplexes in record time,” she said of Mahogany Way, which suffered the most roof damage. “The roof dry in is a major step in CHR’s recovery…”

Sanibel was hit by Hurricane Ian on Sept. 28, 2022 and the powerful category four storm left behind island-wide devastation. CHR partnered with Contractor George Cretu of Eurotrade Construction for the extensive repairs needed to its 11 rental properties. Rice says Cretu has played a vital role in getting the organization running again.

“He and his crew have been by CHR’s side since the storm, starting with taking numerous boat trips to the island on CHR’s behalf,” said Rice. “He has used his contacts in all the trades, including helping us secure PRG, to get CHR back up and running these past six months and beyond.”

Mahogany Way is made up of 14 duplex-style units built in 1992 off of Wooster Lane. Woodhaven consists of a dozen two-bedroom, one-bathroom units on Casa Ybel Road. It was built in 2005. Learn more about CHR on its website.
