Ed Murton

Hurricane Andrew

In 1992, Hurricane Andrew hit in Edward Murton’s own backyard. There were over 100,000 houses with wood showing and all their roofs ripped off, and there were over 25,000 homes completely destroyed. Nearly 1.5 million people were without power. Several employees of his company, Murton Roofing, had severe damage to their homes, as did family, friends, and customers. So Edward and his crew dug in and was able to repair most of the damage. The company was also instrumental in helping the school board get schools open again with emergency dry-ins and major reroofs. They reroofed two major buildings at the Miami International Airport and one building at Miami Dade Community College South campus.These are Edward’s fascinating stories about his work as an emergency roofer after the events of Hurricane Andrew.
