NORMAL – Illinois roofers say they’re having a busy spring because of damage caused by November storms and a harsh winter.

Bob Morrow of Quality Constructions & Exteriors in Lincoln said the winter snow revealed roof problems that many homeowners hadn’t noticed previously. He expected his business this year to double.
