The Many Faces of Storm Damage Restoration
The damage a storm does to your home is contingent on the type of storm in question. Additionally, the level of severity of the storm has an impact of how much damage your home will sustain as well as the area that will be affected.
An example of this would be the effects of heavy, torrential rains verses the effects of a hailstorm. A hailstorm has the potential to damage your roof and external parts of your home but leave no water damages, while heavy rains can cause flooding and water damage, but not have any effect on your roof shingles or siding.
After a damaging storm has passed and your home or business has been left with damage, you will need a restoration contractor with the reputation, staff, equipment and knowledge to get the job done fast and expediently. We believe we are that company.
Here are two examples of the many types of storm damage you may encounter in the Portland area:
- Flooding – The main concern when it comes to flooding will be water damage to your home or business. The restoration company you go with will need to be able to handle water damage restoration work and all the many variables that come with it.
- Wind – This can be a big issue for those of us who live at the base of the Columbia River gorge! Damages from strong winds can include damage from flying debris and organic material that can damage roofing and break windows and sometimes affect structural components of the building. It is a good idea to choose a company that can assist with structural restoration.
