The Rebuilding Registry breaks the traditional boundary that separates public institutions from private enterprise. We believe we have not completed the educational process if we tell consumers how to build, repair or protect their homes but stop short of telling them where to find labor-saving, high-performance products and licensed professionals who serve the homebuilding and housing industries. Please take a few minutes to read this page, the "Guide for Consumers" and the "Guide for Building Industry Professionals."
If you run into problems, or just want to comment, please use the comments link. There's one at the bottom of every page.
The Rebuilding Registry was developed by and for Louisiana, as part of the state’s Hurricane Katrina/Rita recovery program known as “The Road Home.” The content is intended for the Louisiana audience, where major considerations in the design and construction of homes include:
The registry and related building information is for Louisiana. Contractors and providers of other building industry services are included in the registry only if they have the state license or registration required to operate legally in Louisiana.
Although the registry was developed as an education program to serve the victims of Louisiana’s 2005 hurricanes, it will undoubtedly be used by others -- outside Louisiana and potentially outside the country. If, after reading the "Guide for Consumers" and the "Guide for Building Industry Professionals," you have questions about the intent or appropriate use of this Web site, please contact the Registry Manager.
Check with your state Cooperative Extension Service to find out whether the information in the Rebuilding Web site and Registry is appropriate for use in your part of the country. Extension has family resource management and housing programs in many states and is active in disaster preparedness, mitigation and recovery. To find Extension disaster educators in your state, visit the Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN) Web site.
The Rebuilding Registry has two “doors”: one for building industry professionals (providers of professional homebuilding services) and one for consumers (people in need of professional homebuilding services). Behind those "doors," information is organized and tagged by the types of service provided (or needed) and the geographic area in which the services are provided (or needed).
Thanks for stopping by.
