Highlight Homes of Georgia Offers Aid and Advice to Victims of Atlanta’s Tornadoes

Southern Builder and Renovator finds sense of duty in coming to the assistance of those in need as in years past.

Atlanta, GA, May 21, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Upon learning of the devastating tornadoes that struck the Southeastern United States late last month, builder Tony Pourhassan answered the call to help those in need once again. No stranger to coming to the aid of Atlanta homeowners who fall prey to natural disasters, Tony’s Georgia-based company – Highlight Homes – helped victims of destructive hail storms in early 2009 and again when damaging floods hit the region in late 2009. It was the historic flooding that prompted the builder to establish Help Atlanta – the charitable arm of his residential construction company.

“I was out of town at a conference when the tornadoes hit Alabama and Georgia, and was shocked and saddened to witness the ruin they left behind,” recalls Pourhassan. “Although my family and I now live in Georgia, I grew up in Alabama – so I feel strong ties to both states. I am outraged to read reports of unscrupulous contractors taking advantage of people who are truly hurting right now during a time when they need to focus on picking up the pieces and rebuilding their lives. Highlight Homes is a Better Business Bureau accredited business, and my company and I want to help these folks through a combination of aid and advice. That’s why we’re offering families in need a couple of hours of our services, completely free of charge. Because we restore and renovate homes for a living, we can work quickly to help them put their homes and lives back together.”

With the aid of several team members, within a short amount of time Highlight Homes can help assess structural damage and assist in general clean-up. Pourhassan and his team can also offer valuable expertise regarding further repair and maintenance, as well as provide advice on how to steer clear of unlicensed and unqualified contractors. After nearly three decades in the construction industry, Pourhassan can use his strong relationships with his vendors to provide much needed items to help with clean-up and repairs. In the event that a homeowner elects to retain the services of Highlight Homes for further repairs, Pourhassan can work closely with their insurance representative to make the restoration of their home as seamless as possible. “These folks have been through enough,” insists Pourhassan. “Anything we can do to lessen their stress, we will happily do. In the end, their home will be lovingly and thoughtfully restored. There’s truth to the phrase ‘good as new.’”

All homeowners in and around the Atlanta area whose homes suffered damage during the recent tornadoes are invited to contact Highlight Homes to submit a request for assistance. In the event of an overwhelming response, Highlight Homes cannot guarantee that they will be able to assist everyone who calls. Requests will be fulfilled on a first come-first serve basis. Please submit requests by phone at 678.873.9234 or via e-mail at helpatlanta@highlighthomesga.com. To learn more about Highlight Homes, visit their website at www.highlighthomesga.com.
