Types of Storm Damage.
Living in the Midwest can always be a challenge particularly in Lincoln and surrounding areas. There are many types of storm damage that can affect your home or business. Some of these include wind damage, flood damage, and hail damage. Here are some tips to consider should storm damage hit your home or commercial property.
High Wind are common occurrence in Nebraska. Your roof is particularly susceptible. Roof leaks can often lift shingles, cause cracks, and even remove portions or complete roofs. Flying debris can also cause cracks and holes in your siding or cause leakage through chimneys and soffit gable vents. All of these may factor into water invading your residence or business.
Why are roof leaks from storm damage so hard to detect? Many storms may loosen flashing creating a problem that is not visible to the naked eye. Loose flashing can cause roofs to leak occur even up to weeks after the initial storm occurs. Even a small roof leak can produce damp, moldy conditions inside your home or business. Your best bet is to secure a repair immediately after the wind damage. Doing so can prevent long-term interior damage.
