After the storm has passed and it’s safe to go outside, take a look around your home. Be sure to check for missing or damaged shingles on your roof, gutters that are sagging or pulling away from your home, cracked, loose, or missing areas of siding, and any broken or cracked windows.
Assess the damage, take pictures, and be sure to review the damages with your insurance provider to discuss your next options. Reimbursement for comprehensive repairs will need to be cleared by your insurance provider but you can give Clayton Hoover & Sons a call right away for emergency repairs to prevent further damage.
Be aware of loose items around the property to keep flying debris at a minimum. Keep the condition of your roof, gutters, siding, and windows in mind. If you start to notice issues, you should have it fixed right away. This will help keep the integrity of your home against storms.
Flying debris is a danger to people and their homes. Debris can fly through windows and can damage the outside of the home. Be sure to control what you can before a storm arrives to prevent as much damage as possible to your home.
Preventing Storm Damage
Schedule An Inspection
Before a storm arrives, make sure your home is in good condition. Parts of your home that are in need of repairs are more likely to suffer storm damage than one that has been well-maintained. It’s recommended to have your roof professionally inspected every spring and autumn. This will also cover an inspection of your gutters. You should also inspect your siding and windows annually to check for necessary repairs. Clayton Hoover & Sons can provide you with a thorough inspection and take care of all repairs as needed.
Keep An Eye On Potential Risks
When it comes to stormy weather, your home is at risk of various damages. Strong winds can tear off shingles and siding, leaving your home vulnerable to leaks and structural issues. Heavy rainfall can lead to flooding, causing damage to your foundation, walls, and belongings. And hail, falling trees, and other falling debris can cause significant damage to your roof decking and the structural integrity of your home. Being aware of these potential risks can help you take proactive measures to protect your home before a storm hits.
Check Your Shingles And Siding
Even if you’ve had a routine inspection, it’s important to keep an eye on your roof and siding. If any areas are loose or missing, you should get them replaced as soon as possible. Missing or damaged shingles and siding can allow wind, hail, and rain to easily cause more extensive damage to your home. Being proactive in addressing these issues will help maintain the integrity of your home and minimize the risks associated with storm damage. Remember, minor repairs now can save you from major, costly repairs in the future.
If severe weather is imminent, take shelter in an interior room on the lowest level of your home. If you are unable to get to shelter, crouch down and cover your head with your hands. Once the storm has passed, be sure to stay cautious of any other potential dangers. Never mess with downed power lines, as they may still be live with electricity. If you want assistance repairing the damage from the storm, contact us to schedule an appointment.
