Rear yard restoration work in Lafayette, LA.

“As we complete our damage assessment process in the highly-affected Lafayette region following Hurricane Delta, we are now able to provide updated restoration times for the area,” stated the company in a press release. “Our crews have encountered a large amount of vegetation debris as saturated grounds and high winds led to downed trees, impeding restoration. Teams are also tackling time-consuming backyard work. Crews have worked around the clock since Friday and will not rest until every customer has their lights back on. We thank you for your patience and understanding.”
