By the time the insurance companies learned the error of their ways and let local contractors in on the work,most hours were spent putting a lot of very shoddy work right,just adding to the backlog.
Quite frankly,it's a shambles.Some folk are still living in caravans over a year later.There wasn't that much damage here(lincolnshire coast) but over in Hull,some areas are still in a state.
For the majority of people, the flood waters came up under the houses - for those houses, it didn't always rise above the floor level, so they were unaware of it at the time and thought they'd escaped. Now of course, they are showing signs of damp and rotten timber, so it's not over yet by a long chalk.
