The Texas Young Lawyers Association (TYLA) is keenly aware that Texans who are affected by natural disasters including flooding, tornados, hurricanes, wildfires, and earthquakes are forced to repair and rebuild their homes in the days, weeks, months, and unfortunately, sometimes years following the disaster. This is a resource to Texans for hiring construction professionals, including general "Do's" and "Don'ts" for hiring a contractor or other professional to help rebuild in the wake of these natural disasters.
