What Does Storm Damage Entail?
In Gilbert and its surrounding communities, we can experience several kinds of storm damage; including wind, flood, and hail damage. Consider the following tips should your home or business be hit with storm damage.
Wind Damage Restoration
The high winds of the desert often cause severe wind damage, placing your property at risk. Your roof is particularly susceptible as strong winds may cause flying debris to hit or lift it. Because a roof leak may not be evident until the next storm hits, roof damage can be highly challenging to home and business owners alike.
As previously mentioned, many roof leaks and roof damage is difficult to detect. Storms may loosen the roof without creating a problem that is easily visible. Even small roof leaks can produce damp, moldy conditions inside your home or business. It is critical to secure roof inspection and repair immediately after high winds. Doing so can prevent long-term internal damage. The professional technicians at SERVPRO can assist homeowners or business owners in receiving a comprehensive roof assessment and roof repair services when wind damage strikes.
Heavy rains and flooding may cause water damage from many miles away. If the land around your home or business cannot absorb the additional water, flooding will occur. Even houses and shops at higher elevations can sustain flood damage.
Hail Damage & Recovery
Hail can damage not just your roof, but also exterior walls and any detached buildings. It is a great idea to hire a storm damage restoration professional to inspect your roof, exterior walls, and outbuildings for damage after any particularly nasty hail storms. Dents, nicks, and cracks on the roof are areas where hail has damaged the exterior of your home. These weakened areas can lead to other more extensive problems like water damage.
