Choosing Best Roofing Materials to Avoid Roof Collapse

Questions remain about what led to a roof collapse that forced nearly 80 residents out of their homes at a Lakewood apartment building on Sunday.

The affected residents at Maplewood Village Apartments are waiting to find out when they will be allowed inside to retrieve some of their clothing and belongings.

While waiting for answers, some residents have been using their vehicles to live in while only a few stayed at a Red Cross emergency shelter on Sunday night.

The residents are blaming the roofing contractor and its supplier for the collapse. The crew from Gulf Eagle Supply Company began removing the huge stack of roofing materials still sitting on a second building on Monday.
