Water damage alone is devastating. Consider the potential damage caused by damages caused during a storm. Thunderstorms cause power outages, leaks and roof damages, and it’s important to micromanage any wet areas before the storm passes. If you don’t, you might face hefty roof replacements, exterior painting jobs and even wood siding repair. The damage might’ve already been done, but it shouldn’t be allowed to get worse. Check out our tips for in-storm water damage recovery.

As a homeowner, you understand the importance of making rainwater go where it needs to be rather than pouring over your home to land randomly wherever gravity takes it. Part of your house's practical and functional design assures rain goes to your lawn rather than your foundation, or worse, inside your home. Water has to be directed to avoid mold and immediate damage, and it is the universal solvent and will eventually destroy anything it contacts if not properly channeled.

You may think of storm damage as being associated with the winter weather and the weight of snow and ice, but summer storms can also cause damage to your house. Hail can cause unsightly dings and scratches, and can either directly damage aspects of the home or cause damage via debris or fallen tree limbs. Hopefully you’ll never have to manage such damage, but the best way to handle it is to be prepared beforehand with a plan for what to do should it occur.

Every homeowner understands how gutters serve a function, but few understand exactly how important that function is. Gutters do look nice, they serve as a line between the roof and the body of your house, but they are more than decorative. As you realize the convenience of how they keep rain from pouring directly over the edge of the roof you begin to understand the real purpose of the gutters. They direct rainwater and assure it goes where you want it to be.

If you’re like most people, you assume your roof is in good working order. There are no apparent leaks and the roof looks nice from the street. As far as you know or could be expected to know, nothing is wrong with the roof. However, the early stages of a potential problem don’t present with visible signs, which is why regular roof inspections and maintenance are important. You want to catch any issues before they become a larger problem which requires more extensive repairs to the water damage caused.
