Joe Deible of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, left, and John Dagil of Cleveland, Ohio, prepare to make some outside observations and measurements at a Sebring-area Habitat for Humanity home that had a claim of hurricane damage. Their hope is to coordinate with the owner to make repairs, and save the owners from the financial struggle of paying for repairs themselves.
