Homeowners still recovering from Harvey become do-it-yourselfers

By By Diane Cowen If you think Houston has put itself together and moved forward, look again. Between a shortage of labor and a shortage of cash, thousands of homeowners affected by Hurricane Harvey’s flood waters are still recovering.Those with money or insurance checks grabbed available contractors and resources. But of the estimated 170,000 flooded homes, some 80 percent of them were not covered by flood insurance. FEMA checks covered just a fraction of repair costs.Faced with five- and six-figure contractor bids, many have become do-it-yourselfers. They had no choice but to learn to hang drywall, lay tile and handle other construction tasks. And their work is still under way.
