Even more dangerous, damage can result in trees and other large objects being blown over, either on top of, or precariously perched above your property and valuables. Wind can also throw up dust, debris and stones at a high velocity potentially smashing through windows and shattering glass.

High winds also often result in damage to important utilities around the house causing major power outages or even floods as water mains and pipes burst. Storm damage, through all these different means, can wreak serious havoc on your property and cause fire damage, water damage and all kinds of other hazards.

Flood damage

According to the FEMA, water damage from floods is one of the most common and costly hazards in the U.S. Statistics by the NFIP (National Flood Insurance Program) cite a 1 in 4 chance of flood in high-risk areas over the course of the average 30-year mortgage. Unfortunately, most flood damage is not covered by your typical insurance policy. Commonly recognized causes of floods are thunderstorms, tropical storms, hurricanes, excessive rain and snow. Flood can occur in a fast or slow fashion. This effects obvious flood areas as well as areas that appear completely harmless in dry weather. Floods can affect your home or business in several ways. The number one affect is health and safety risks if not immediately cleaned up. This includes structural damage, electrical damage and risks, sharp glasses and metals, sanitary hazards and diseases from standing water, contaminated drinking water, and defunct drainage and sewage systems. Time is not on your side. Unless your items are completely dry, you are only prolonging the inevitable.


Broken Pipe Water Damage

During snow or ice storms, your pipes can freeze and bust. This can damage furniture, appliances, carpets, rugs, and even clothes. Water damage is best located and dealt with quickly. The earlier the leak is detected the easier it may be to save your possessions. Burst pipes often lead to collapsed ceiling as well. They can also cause severe damage such as the heat not operating properly. But what causes your pipes to burst? Commonly, pipes bust due to being exposed due to their location. Also, if the insulation that is on, or around the pipe has failed. When the pipe reaches freezing temperatures, the water inside pipes freeze. When the inside of the pipes freeze, two things happen simultaneously, first ice builds which causes any moving water in the pipeline to become blocked and starts to build pressure. The ice expands as it freezes forcing the pipe to weaken. These types of pressure occurring at the same time makes the pipe eventually give out, causing a burst or break.


Ice Dam Damage

Ice dam damage occurs when gravity pulls water inside your home through the wood, insulation, and drywall. This causing major structural damage and mold growth. Recognize these signs of stress sagging ridgeline, dripping ceilings, water leaks on interior walls and ceilings, jammed doors, cracked interior walls near the center of your home, and creaking sounds. With the use of professional grade dehumidifiers and air-movers, can easily make your home dry and comfortable again.


Emergency Board Up

Homes or business suffering from storm or fire damage resulting in an opening in your building may need emergency board up services. Openings in the home or business structure needs to be properly boarded up to protect the building from additional weather and illegal entry. Insurance policies require you to be proactive in protecting your home or business after any type of damage has occurred. Otherwise, insurance companies could account any further/secondary damage to the structure as negligence.


Water Removal and Property Drying

It doesn't take long for water to have a seriously damaging effect on your home. In the event of a water emergency, a homeowner will need to take immediate action to begin the water extraction process. This helps mitigate the damage, save as much property as possible, and dry the area out before mold and mildew set in. It only takes a couple inches of water to create a serious threat to your home or office. It only takes 24 hours from a clean water flood to downgrade to a more serious and dangerous greywater or blackwater situation. This puts homeowners and business owners at risk for more than just water damage.


Tornado Damage

Tornados are a violent rotating column f air extending from a thunderstorm to the ground. They are capable, at their most violent, of tremendous destruction with wind speeds of up to 300 mph. They can easily destroy large buildings, uproot trees and hurl vehicles hundreds of yards. An average of 1000 tornadoes are reported nationwide. Tornados can damage roofs, shatter windows and sliding doors, can break garage doors, and damage siding. A professional can help with a lot of the emotional distress of cleaning up after a tornado. They do it safely with the knowledge gathered by years of experience.


Hail Damage

Only apparent after a few years when it has turn into leaks or other more serious issues, hail damage’s effect, especially on your roof, is gradual. It starts when hail hits your roof and knocks off the protective granule coating of the roof shingles. Damage causes the layer underneath to become exposed. This eventually causing these areas to become brittle and susceptible to leaks. Leaking from a roof can lead to more extensive damage and expensive costs.
