Measuring the Size of a Potential Storm at Home
In 2018 climate disasters cost Americans a total of $91.0 billion in damage. Some storms drift by without a single scratch on our homes. Some storms cause storm damage that causes us both stress and money. While we receive storm warnings and watches from our phones, TVs, and computers, news channels cannot assess personal damage to each individual family home. Storm and rain damage can lead to other issues, not only destroying the structure of the house but creating leaks from burst pipes, water buildup, and other internal problems. The best thing to do for the prevention of storm damage would be to monitor the integrity of our roof and pipes consistently. Of course, that isn’t always manageable with a busy schedule. No one can blame homeowners for not knowing every detail of their home, mainly when damage occurs regardless.
To tell if storm damage is potential, consider the following. Is it a storm warning or a storm watch? Storm watches are more severe storms, therefore, more likely to do damage. What other factors does a specific storm bring? Large enough sized hail can do roof damage, shatter windows, and dent cars. If storm damage does occur, leave the stress to storm damage specialists. A storm-damaged roof is a dangerous site to repair, and companies like SERVPRO of North Fulton are equipped with the necessary equipment to repair while staying safe and avoiding further damage. Once the structure of the roof has been secured again, shingles can be replaced and secured quickly. The process not only repairs previous damage but can prevent damage in the future by reinforcing the strength of a storm damaged roof.
