Storm Water & Wind Damage
A storm is hitting, the rain is dropping at ½ inch per hour, the winds are sweeping at upwards of 40 mph. In some instances, this amount of rain is too much for natural elements to absorb back into the earth and it must go somewhere, often within personal property. The rain combined with the heavy winds can even force the rain to enter areas that you would never think to check or look. Therefore, creating water damage in and around rooms containing window seals, dryer vents, bathroom vents and window-mounted air conditioner units.
In some instances, homeowners can create their own natural elements by planting trees, gardens, vegetation or even creating rain gardens and installing rain barrels. However, when the storms are too great, even these preventative measures may not keep the water from flooding and damaging your personal property.
The damage of the heavy winds can tear at the roof and siding, leaving the structure of the house exposed while riding out the duration of the storm. Nothing is protecting the interior of the house from receiving water damage, and once the storm is over, water may appear to be spreading throughout the interior of the house.
