Storm Damage Restoration in Dallas, TX
Our roofs take a real beating throughout the year. That is why it’s essential to have a proper storm damage restoration expert on call in case your home experiences damage from a severe weather event. Especially in North Texas, while we may not have heavy snow-laden winters, we definitely have every other kind of inclement weather. Between lightning storms, hail, and tornadoes, we see our fair share of natural disasters. All of this can cause significant storm damage to our homes by varying degrees. The best thing you can do in the event of a storm, is to act quickly. Don’t panic, wait the storm out, then assess the damage, and call a specialist immediately. They can walk you through the immediate triage, help you deal with the insurance company, and then get someone out to professionally diagnose the damage and set you up with a plan to repair it as quickly as possible.
What Are The Types Of Storm Damage?
Storms can cause all kinds of damage to a person’s property. The most common storm damage comes from heavy winds or debris impact that compromise the roofing materials and allow leaks to form or areas for mold and rot to grow. As roof damage isn’t always obvious, it’s important to understand the type of damage that can occur and how to assess the damage so that you can be educated when discussing action plans with the insurance company and your contractor.

Wind can be one of the most dangerous effects of a storm, chiefly because debris can be lifted into the air and blown onto and into your home. Luckily, you’re relatively safe from damage from winds of 25-45 mph. At wind speeds of above 45 mph, larger branches and tree damage can occur. At these speeds you can expect some damage to your landscaping, possible damage to your roofing materials, and downed power lines or exposed wiring. Common effects of strong windstorms are a leaky roof, missing, lifting, or curling shingles, damaged gutters, and deterioration in the flashing around vents, chimneys, or skylights.
Lightning can be highly damaging to a house depending on its proximity. A direct strike can puncture a roof, scorch the materials, tear off shingles and gutters, cause an electrical fire, or even dislodge chimney bricks. Although it’s highly unlikely that your house will be hit directly by lightning, it’s important to be prepared. Shutting off the power, and checking for electrical fires should be your first step. Then do a quick assessment of the outer roof to check if any obvious physical damage has occurred. Check for structural damage near the area of the strike, scorch marks, and torn or missing shingles.
Hail can cause light or serious damage depending on the size and duration of the hail storm. For example, if the hail is 1” in diameter or bigger, it can dent metal roofing, siding or gutters, bruise shingles and dislodge granules and flashing. Hail damage to your roof can sometimes be hard to detect, so first check if there is hail damage to other parts of your property such as your garage door, dings on painted wood or shutters, splatter marks or dents to an AC unit or grill or dents in your mailbox. These are all signs that your roof could potentially be damaged.
