Storm Damage in Pinehurst/Moore & Montgomery

2/17/2020 (Permalink)

Severe weather can take a toll on the exterior of your home or commercial business. This can lead to serious problems even after te storm has passed, such as microbial growth, worsening existing leaks, or creating new ones. This is why the SERVPRO has technicians available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

With the storm behind you, here are three challenges that may preset themselves:

  • Roof Damage: Roofs can be damaged during any inclement weather, although storms represent specific damages. Storms can bring torrential rains, heavy winds, snow, and even hail. Moisture can worsen weak areas on your roof, and strong winds can remove shingles or cause visible damage.
  • Window Damage: Windows are vulnerable during storm weather, especially older ones that have not been properly sealed or weather-stripped. Moisture can seep into unsealed areas around a window and create a leak or cause rot in the wood surrounding it. Any carpeting or rugs near the window could also be damaged and form microbial growth. Basement or ground level windows are especially vulnerable and can lead to flooded basements and damaged property.
  • Clogged Gutters: Gutters are not the most interesting problem to occur from storm damage, nor are they a home or business owners first concern after a storm. Rain can wash all kinds of debris into the gutters and they may no longer be able to drain properly. The excess weight of debris can also damage your home. 

Storm damage can affect more than just exterior of your home; it can affect your building's foundation. Post-storm, take a walk around your property and investigate any damages you may see if appropriate. Call us at SERVPRO of Pinehurst/Moore & Montgomery Counties to restore your property today!
