Have Storm, Ice or Flood Damage?
If you live in an area that has recently experienced storm damage, wind damage, hail damage, ice damage, frozen pipes that busted, or river flooding you aren't alone. Many homeowners experience storm damage at some point, and while it's a stressful experience, there are several things you can do to minimize storm damage to your home and to quickly perform storm restoration after sustained damage. Here's what you need to know.
Types of Storm Damage
Windstorms, micro-bursts and tornado damage can cause a roof leak, standing ground water, and intense flooding. If you have storm damage in your area, make sure you check for roof damage and a roof leak. You may notice flooding and ground water in your home. The evidence of a roof leak could be more discreet and may present itself as stains on your ceiling. A roof leak is something you shouldn't ignore. Always contact a professional as soon as you realize you may need a roof repair.
Hail damage may also require a roof repair. Roof damage can occur when hail hits your roof during a particularly bad storm. In addition to a roof repair, hail damage can require siding repair for your home, as well. Hail damage can present immediately after a storm and may be accompanied by ice and wind damage.
Flooding is a major issue that can lead to extensive water damage. Flooding can occur after a severe storm, when you have frozen pipes break and when a sump-pump fails. These can create standing flood water in your home and if this water isn't properly extracted, it can lead to other issues in your home, including mold growth.
River flooding also can impact both the interior and exterior of your home and also requires water restoration. River flooding occurs after periods of extreme rain and lead to ground water standing outside of your home, as well as possibly flood water inside your home.
Finally, ice damage can occur from Ice dams. Typically, an ice dam forms near or in your gutters. An ice dam can cause incredible damage to your home. While most homeowners are concerned about frozen pipes, not all realize just how much ice damage can occur with ice damming. If you notice an ice dam beginning to form, don't wait to get help for it.
