Chicago builder works through storm
Great Lakes Builders Inc. | Chicago
A neighbor's car accident put Kevin Haas' garage in danger.
"It looked like it might collapse any minute," Haas says. "Great Lakes said they'd come by the next day to put up some emergency shoring, but when they heard reports of strong winds, they did the work right away - putting up supports in the rain as the tornado sirens went off. Later, they repaired it back to its original condition, and left the site cleaner than it was prior to the accident."
