Understanding Storm Damage

strom damageRegardless of your stance on climate change, it cannot be denied that today's storms are becoming stronger and more devastating. Flooding, landslides, hail and strong winds can severely damage your home when a major storm strikes.

The extent of damage depends on the type of storm that hits your home. Here are some of the more common types of damage your home might experience from a major storm:

  • Wind Damage – This can be caused by hurricanes, tornadoes, or even thunderstorms. Damages that comes from strong winds typically impact roofs, siding, and windows. The strength of the wind, along with flying debris, has a bearing on how much damage you experience.
  • Flood Damage – Flooding usually occurs when torrential rains hit and the water cannot be drained away efficiently. This often happens near bodies of water but can occur in low-lying areas or in homes with poorly constructed sewage systems.
  • Hail Damage – When hailstorms occur, the severity of damage will vary based on the size of the stones and the length of the storm. Your roof is likely to encounter missing or cracked shingles, holes in the roof, broken windows, and other issues that need repairs.
  • Blizzard Damage – Blizzards feature freezing temperatures and freezing precipitation, which will cause problems for pipes that are not winterized. A frozen pipe that bursts will create indoor flooding and water damage.
