How Damaged is My Jefferson Home After a Storm?
Our SERVPRO professionals can assess damage and repair structural breaches after severe storm systems.
Severe weather is nothing new to Jefferson's homes and businesses, but the damage that occurs requires immediate attention by competent contractors and restoration technicians of our SERVPRO team. In our area, especially factors like severe wind, can damage your home's defenses, such as the roof or siding. While you cannot control these natural elements outside of your house, you can have a clear plan in place regarding who repairs and restores these damages when they occur.
It might be initially challenging to calculate the damage that occurs from a windstorm against Jefferson structures. In many cases, competent professionals like our technicians must begin job scoping and damage assessment upon arrival to fully grasp the entire spectrum a loss to the property.We fixate our inspection on several areas most prone to structural compromise after severe weather events so that we can quickly determine what repairs and emergency tarping/board up might be required. Some of the most sensitive material to windstorms include:
Can Water Damage Result from Structural Damage?
Vulnerabilities in your home's exterior can leave openings for water penetration. The water inside of your house can spread quickly and affect multiple areas. Much like the emergency services where structural breaches can get repaired or temporarily resolved, mitigation that follows seeks to address any water that might have entered your home from these physical vulnerabilities. Extraction is the foundational element of this approach. We use submersible pumps and wet vacuums to address standing water and surface damage before delving more deeply into drying and water removal with the air movers dehumidifiers.
