When Your Roof Is Damaged In A Storm, What Do You Do?

8/3/2020 (Permalink)

Call SERVPRO of Stamford for any type of storm-related damage to your home’s roof. We are always ready and available to help.

In the last couple weeks, we have seen significant storms occur in the Stamford area, with high winds and lots of rain. With another couple tropical storms on the horizon, homeowners need to be prepared. Water damage from a storm may result in many ways, but the main two are from rising groundwater and holes in a roof causing rainwater to pour in. The latter is a very serious issue.  A large amount of water can flood into your home from above.  This can soak insulation, degrade drywall, and cause electrical faults.  Due to these factors, roof repair is very important.

Often, our team will deploy temporary measures like tarps to quickly stop any further damage from occurring.  Because the water comes from above, it may pick up harmful particles from every layer that it passes through as gravity brings it down.  This can be foam insulation, fiberglass insulation, and even animal droppings. All of these contaminants will then pool on the floors, which can cause permanent discoloration to wood floors, furniture, and carpets.

The structure may become compromised as well. Ceilings, walls, and floors may become waterlogged, leading to lingering moisture that is prone to mold growth. Materials from the ceiling may also fall down if not properly dealt with.

SERVPRO has certified technicians for storm damage in the Stamford area ready to respond right away.  We examine and assess the damage, and create a custom remediation plan for your unique situation. Our teams are available 24/7 to help homeowners whose homes have been damaged by storms and experienced flooding.
