Home Storm Damage Repair
When your house is damaged by a storm, you want to get it fixed right away so you can be back in your home as soon as possible. But how do you know if you need repairs? What kind of repairs will be necessary? The experts at CJS Exterior Maintenance are trained to recognize the different types of home storm damage and help you get your home repaired with minimal hassle.
Home storm damage affects nearly 15 million homes a year. CJS Exterior Maintenance has helped thousands of homeowners repair their homes after some of the worst storms in Northeast Ohio. When it comes to storm damage repair, there are three main types of damage: roof hail damage, exterior damage caused by wind or debris, and interior water damage.
Did you know that hail can cause as much damage to your home as a tornado? Hail is not just an annoyance—it's an act of nature that can wreak havoc on your home.
Roof hail damage is easy to spot because it looks like little dots all over your roof. The dots are actually tiny chunks of your roof's shingles that have been damaged. Roof hail damage can cause leaks, which means that water could be getting inside your home through cracks in the roof and around vents or pipes. This type of damage needs immediate attention since water can cause mold growth if left untreated for too long.
The first thing to consider is whether repairing your roof is even an option. If the damage is minimal, and only a few shingles have been damaged, then yes—you may be able to simply replace those shingles before they cause further problems.
However, if the damage is extensive or if there are multiple areas of damage on your roof, then fixing them one at a time may not be feasible because the integrity of your entire roof would be compromised by each individual fix. This means that repairing your roof could lead to additional problems down the road (such as leaks) that would cost more than just replacing it outright.
Thankfully, most home damage can be fixed. If you're in need of a repair, the first step is to hire a professional company to assess the damage and make sure that you're getting the right type of repairs.
