Storms can cause a lot of stress in your home. If you are unprepared, storm damage can permanently cripple the internal structure of your home. It’s essential to know the most common forms of storm damage so you can watch out for them and know how to protect against it or get it repaired. Here are some of the most common forms of storm damage.
Hail Storm Damage
It’s no secret that hail can be highly destructive. But it doesn’t just affect your roof, with strong winds, it will damage the siding of your home as well. Hiring a professional to inspect the damage is the best route to go. With a shingle roof, dark spots are places where the hail took off the granules of asphalt. This kind of damage leads to leaks and cracks. Your siding can become chipped and cracked as well.
Wind Storm Damage
The wind might not sound very scary or destructive, but if you’ve seen winds at 25 mph or more, you know it can be stronger than you think. Strong winds can rip off shingles from your roof, which causes cracks. Flying debris can cause holes and cracks in your roof or your siding as well. Trees get knocked over by the wind too, which can cause extreme damage if a tree is too close to your home.
Water damage is something that can cause a lot of problems in your home. Specific health hazards arise, like if mold begins to grow. It is also possible that the water compromises the structural integrity of your home depending on the location of the damage.
