Structural Damage Due to Spring Storms

Now that we are on the downslide of winter weather, it is the ideal time to cease the next nice day to walk your home or business property. Winter winds, ice, and snow can cause serious damage to your roof, siding, gutters, or other exterior without you noticing until it is too late. However, even if your home or property has made it through winter unscathed, there is still potential for structural damage due to incoming spring storms.

Spring Storm Statistics

The spring season in the midwest can be the prime time for fast-moving and destructive storm systems. Thanks to the unpredictability of northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin weather, spring storms are also not just rain; instead, spring storms can be blizzards, tornados, or other microburst systems that wreak havoc on your home’s exterior and cost thousands of dollars in damages.

Before Storms Approach

The end of winter is the ideal time to take stock of your home’s exterior. Not only can you catch any issues that arose due to winter weather, but you can also evaluate the need to make any repairs or replacements before spring. Assure your roof, siding, and gutter are all in excellent shape and that you are updated with any home insurance premiums or upgrades.

After the Storm Hits

If your residential or commercial property has been impacted by a spring storm, call your insurance company immediately. Issues such as damage caused by hail, winds, or flooding could be covered by your home insurance and should be resolved quickly. Next, begin to work with an exterior repair company that is reputable, reliable, and experienced working with insurance companies.
