Storm Damage Restorations, Repairs, & Replacements
If you notice leaks, missing shingles, damaged siding, water damage, or any other type of issue due to severe weather, we can assess the damage and fix it as quickly as possible.
Types of Damage
Hail can be one of the most catastrophic losses an area can sustain. Hail does not only damage roofs, but it can ruin your siding, windows, sheds, landscaping, vehicles, or outdoor equipment and furniture.
Hail damage may be hard to detect, and without knowing what to look for it may be missed or mistaken for other damage. If the damages are hard to detect, then is it even worth replacing? Small damages today, can mean big problems in the future.
Heavy wind can quite literally shake your home, bring down trees, and litter your property with leaves, branches, and debris. Windy conditions can occur whether there’s a big storm or not, and sometimes the gusts are so strong they cause major damage. Unlike hail damage, wind damage is usually easier to spot.
Wind damage can vary from shingles or pieces of siding being blown off your home, to a tornado leaving your family without a home entirely. With such a large range of damages possible, it is hard to determine what repairs will need to be made to make to your family whole.
Heavy rains, snow, and wind can all cause water damage to your home. Sometimes it’s obvious, for instance, if your basement floods. Other times it can be harder to spot, sometimes going unnoticed for days or even weeks at a time.
Here are a few signs of water damage that you should look for:
- Drips coming from the ceiling in the upper floors of the home.
- Water accumulating in or dripping out of light fixtures and ceiling fans.
- Spreading watermarks on the ceiling.
- Water dripping down the exterior walls.
- Water accumulating at the tops of window trim and doors.
My Home Has Been Damaged. What Do I Do?
- Take photos and/or videos of the damage when it’s safe to do so.
- Document the type and extent of the damage in writing.
- Record the date, time, duration, and weather conditions that caused the damage.
- Find if other homes and businesses in the area have been damaged.
- If your roof is leaking, try to evaluate where the water is coming from.
- Move your valuables away from the affected area.
- If it’s hailing, try to collect a sample of the hail and put it in your freezer if possible.
- Find pictures that show the area before the damage began.
- Contact Super Siders to schedule an inspection.
