Are You Ready For Wind Damage?

8/11/2021 (Permalink)

Compared to other parts of the country, Fairfield County sees less wind damage than others. But that means that many people are less prepared for it when it does actually happen.  We have already experienced heavy winds and storms this season, and seen the effects that wind damage can have, especially for those who are underprepared.  Strong wind can cause direct damage to your home or business, or can cause objects to fly into your building, causing damage that way.  

Thunderstorms vs. Hurricanes And Tornadoes

Commonly, wind damage occurs during a thunderstorm.  Winds during this type of storm can loosen shingles, loosen siding, and cause smaller objects to collide with your home or business.  The damage that happens during hurricane or tornado conditions is similar, but can happen to a greater degree, causing more significant destruction.  Shingles and siding can become dislodged and ripped away.  Larger items can be moved by the wind’s force, causing structural damage if any object hits your home or business. 

Prevent Wind And Storm Damage

If you know that any storm is coming, inspect your roof for any shingles that are loose already.  The same can be said for your siding.   Additionally, and most importantly, move any loose objects that could be thrown into your home away from the structure.

It is important to contact a storm damage restoration professional as soon as the storm is over to help limit and remediate the damage. SERVPRO of Greenwich has over 30 years of experience working with people who have had wind damage to their property.  If you have any type of storm damage, call us immediately at 203.324.1642.
