Property damage from the winter storm is likely to reach NIS 50 million, according to Thursday estimates by the Repair Contractors Association.
Most of the damage to property and structures will result from
falling objects, such as trees, and water making its way into buildings.
greatest damage is to roof apartments and paved roofs, which suffered
from water penetration due to inadequate sealing," said Associoation
Chairman Eran Siv. "Likewise, in many cases leaks were discovered from
higher floors to lower ones, which caused property damage."
