Storm damage can come in many forms. Tropical storms produce strong winds, hail, and even flooding. Strong winds can cause fallen trees, damaged roofs, and other external wind damage. Occurring close to large bodies of water, these tropical storms can often turn to hurricanes, increasing the risk of potential damage to your home. It’s important to begin storm clean up immediately in order to check for impacted areas and protect against additional loss.
An experienced estimator will come to your home or business, review the damage, and provide a timely estimate for restoration. As experts in the restoration industry, we even work with your insurance to get your project moving quickly so you can get your life back to normal.

Roof damage is common in the aftermath of a storm. Start with checking for shingles around the yard and perimeter of your home, checking your roof for signs of loose shingles, curling, or loss of granulation. If safe to do so, you can even check for signs of unevenness or crumbling in the roofing cement.
Check for signs of water leaks in your home by listening for any unusual drips, looking for discoloration on your walls and ceiling, and keeping an eye out for any broken seals around windows. In winter months, and during cold weather storms, frozen pipes can burst, causing a steady flow of water into areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms.
If your home has a basement, keep an eye for any pools of water coming in through doors, low lying windows, or other sources.
Other external damage to look out for includes damaged brick or siding, cracking on the external structures of your home, loose steps or beams, and broken seals around the windows.
