The northeast often gets a variety of storm types, which is why it’s important to have a homeowner’s insurance policy that covers this. Insurance can save you tens of thousands of dollars and enable you to hire a great company to repair storm damage. Whether you just need storm damage repair or a complete remodel, there are contractors like ourselves who can help you through any of these issues. Here are a few of the most common types of storm damage across the country, many of which we can help repair.
Flooding is a huge issue during storms. It wreaks havoc on just about every area of your home, from floors to walls. Water permeates into the structure of your home, causing mold, weakened support, and wearing away at the finishing on your floors or saturating carpet.
If you have damage from flooding, it is important to start draining water immediately and call someone to help get the water out. After that, your contractor can start rebuilding the damage and keep it from getting worse.
When large chunks of ice are literally pummeling your home, it’s only natural that there can be some serious damage done. Your roof, windows, and exterior of your home can be destroyed by hail storms. Make sure you stay inside during these storms, and once the storm has passed call us for help to repair any damage that has been done.
Snowstorms are common during harsh northeast winters. If your pipes freeze over, it can cause them to burst and flood your home and heavy snow pile can place so much weight on your roof that it can cause water to seep into your walls. Keeping your roof clear of snow is important, but make sure you call a professional to have this done.
Every once in a while the Northeast gets hit with a hurricane, and they can cause major damage. Common damage from hurricanes includes the following: wind damage, flooding, and structural damage.
Tropical storms can also cause the same damage mentioned above, so it is important to remedy this as soon as possible. These storms can cause major damage to virtually every part of your home, including the structure of your home, the roof, flooring, and more.
Characterized by high winds, sometimes over 300mph, tornados can be deadly. Depending on the size and strength of the tornado, you could be left with no home at all. If your home withstands damage, you will often see it in the roof and walls. Windows can also be blown out by the high winds, or objects can be thrown through your windows and break them.
Safety is always the number one concern during a storm. Your home can be repaired, and lost material items replaced. If you have experienced damage from a storm, don’t wait around as doing so can lead to more issues such as mold or more structural damage. If you’re in the Glenolden and Delaware Valley area, call us as soon as possible to have your situation evaluated and start the process of repairing your home.
