How Storm Damage Affects Your Home
Twin Cities residents have found out recently that the one thing you can’t control when it comes to your home is the weather. Damaging winds, penetrating hail, and overflowing rain can rip into your home both inside and out.
Although you can do an ‘anti-rain’ dance all you want – Mother Nature will still produce thunderstorms and some of those can be damaging. What you can control however is the steps to take after the storms. It’s imperative to get your home put back into place as soon as possible mostly to reduce the risk of escalating damages (and costs).
Twin Cities Storm Damage Restoration
Every aspect of a storm can cause a variety of damaging results to your home. Your home’s exterior is at risk any time wind and rain threaten our city. Siding can become damaged by hail, shingles will tear off in heavy winds, windows can break from twirling debris, and heavy rains will spill over your gutters increasing the chance for flooding in the basement.
Once your exterior has been compromised, the interior of your home then becomes more at risk. When your roof leaks, it can cause damage to attic insulation and staining to ceilings. Obviously broken windows are safety and security threats and even basement sump pumps can handle only so much water exposure. Once there’s water in your home it increases the chance for mold to grow and will thus decrease your indoor air quality.
What To Do After the Storm Has Passed
The safety of your family, friends, and pets is the first thing to consider after a heavy storm has affected the area. After that, it’s time to take the critical steps of putting your home back together.
Even if your property doesn’t appear to have heavy damage, one of the first steps to take after a storm is calling your insurance adjuster. The sooner the adjuster visits the faster you can start necessary repairs or begin the process of contracting work to start repairing your roof, windows, siding, etc.
