Types of Storm Damage
Winds that exceed 50 mph are considered high winds and can cause the most damage. Although there are many types, you will typically see the most damage with straight line, downdrafts, and microbursts. The most common types of damage you will see from winds are roof, window and siding damage. Shingles can fall off or pieces of siding can detach. Either way, if damage is done in these areas, it can put your overall property at risk of floodwaters and outside debris.
Falling at speeds of up to 120 mph, hail can create significant damage to your property. The most common damage is to the roof of a structure, however, hail can cause damage to windows, siding, shingles, skylights, and metal structures attached to the property.
Hail is the type of damage that can cause just enough damage to cause leaks but is small enough to go unnoticed. If you think your property has been damaged during a hailstorm, you need to get a certified inspector out there as soon as you can.
Most insurance companies put a 12-24 month window on filing a storm damage claim. Many homeowners do not realize they have damage until it is too late. Do not make that same mistake.
With violent storms comes rain. If you have a weak foundation in your property, or damage to the building envelope, rain and groundwater can flood your property. First Call 24/7 has the ability to quickly extract any standing water and dry the affected areas. We respond quickly and dry quickly so you can get on with your life.
When lightning strikes, it takes the fastest path to the ground. Typically it will travel through your electrical wiring, plumbing or cable/telephone lines. When this occurs, it can cause smoke or even a fire. If your home has been struck by lightning, call First Call 24/7. We are trained to identify the path of the lightning and identify if any wiring or plumbing has been damaged along the way. Many times lightening damage is not always obvious. It is not until leaks or failed electrical lines are identified to realize the true level of damage.
Much of the damage that occurs to a property from a violent storm is the flying debris. Concrete blocks, lawn furniture, tree limbs and other types of debris are a few examples. First Call 24/7 is trained to board-up any openings to the building envelope immediately upon arrival. This could include your roof, broken windows, broken doors, or any other weakened areas of the property.
