Rain water leaks on the wall causing damage

Summer brings more severe weather. Warmer weather means more storms that can cause major damages to your property. Storm damages can range from hail damage to wind and water damages. In most instances, it is vital that you call a professional to handle any repairs to your property. Some damages are covered under your insurance, but claims must be filed by a certified professional. Below we will discuss storm damages and what to do if it happens to you!

Missing Shingles

Shingles are one of the primary forms of storm damages. Winds, hail, and heavy rain can all break and loosen shingles. Damaged or missing shingles can cause your roof to leak, resulting in water damages. If you see any missing or broken shingles after a storm, call a professional for repairs as soon as possible. Water damages can be very expensive and lead to more problems, such as mold or rot.

Hail Damages

Hail can cause a wide range of damages to your property. Hail has been known to damage roofs, siding, windows, and even cars. If you have any type of hail damage, contact a professional. Most hail damage is covered under your insurance.

Wind/Tree Damages

The wind is common during severe storms, but the damages that can occur are devastating. Strong winds can cause limbs and other debris to hit your home. If a tree or large limb strikes your property, it could cause structural damages. These damages generally cause water to leak into your property, causing significant water damages.
If you have any of the above storm damages, call a certified professional to handle the clean-up, repairs, and insurance claims. Storm damages if not handled quickly, can spiral out of control, damaging other areas of your home, causing mold growth, which can make you ill, and rot to occur.
