Storm damage to your home can be the result of something as benign as a sudden strong wind. Or it can happen because of something more extended like a long-term cold snap. Regardless of how it happens, it's necessary to address storm damage quickly and professionally. Not doing so could result in further damage to your home.
Storm Damage: Seen and Unseen
Sometimes storm damage is obvious such as when a tree branch breaks a window or a piece of siding on the front of your house comes loose. While one is an emergency situation that must be addressed as quickly as possible and the other can wait a few days for repair, both situations require timely attention. Even though it might not seem like it is as important as the broken window, if storm damage repair involving the siding is put off, snow, rain, and ice can all gain entrance to the wood of your home's frame. Over time, this can become a breeding ground for mold and mildew. It can also compromise the structural integrity of your home.
In other cases, you might not notice the storm damage. This is especially true if the damage is to your roof. It might be hard for you to realize that a few of your roof's shingles are missing -- especially if the window has blown them completely out of your yard. Cracked shingles and those that are wearing out are also conditions that can be made worse with the long winter weather and spring storms.
