Construction firms cope with flooding [VIDEO]

Transcript

Contractors are certainly ready to say goodbye to winter and all of its construction obstacles. But spring brings new challenges that construction firms must be prepared for.

Contractors must be sure to use the proper construction tools such as a Semi-Trash Water Pump by Generac (GEN-6822 with FREE Hose Kit) and methods to help new and existing buildings fend off melting snow.

Part of the focus on flood damage came in the form of new regulations from the White House. President Obama announced a new executive order that ensures contractors meet certain terms for federally-funded infrastructure.
