In less than a decade the United States was pummeled by the two costliest hurricanes in history. Thousands were left homeless and the tourism industry lay in ruins. Water goes where it wants to and when a storm surge rolls through city streets unabated, the only way to escape the deluge is to be above it. Out of the wreckage of these two natural disasters came the equivalent of a modern gold rush for house jackers, with competitive crews scrambling to meet the demand. But only a select handful have the experience and know-how to do the job right … and Jeremy Patterson is one of the best in the business. Wherever a structure needs jacking, Jeremy Patterson brings his “have gun, will travel” attitude to challenges that others might back away from. The risks could spell certain death should anything go wrong … and there are so many things that could go wrong. Everything is at stake – money, homes and lives.
