Rely on SERVPRO for Storm & Wind Damage Help

Storms can be experienced at any time and during any season, but winter seems to be the worst time. With low temperatures outside already making things cold and miserable outdoors, a winter storm can make the weather seem even more menacing. Homeowners who know about colder winters and who have prepared their homes for winter weather will often experience less of the chilliness that can seep in through neglected cracks and crevices around doors and windows than those who didn't, but not always.

Many homeowners in Preston Hollow didn't expect the brutal weather that is going on now across much of Texas, leaving behind more storm damage than what might be typically expected. These storms have been so severe sometimes that they have caused power outages from frozen lines and fallen trees. The results felt has been much more than the usual storm damage of broken tree limbs in your yard and the occasional torn off shingles.
Part of the problem with storms is the strength and duration of the winds. These winds can reach high enough speeds that they can slam lawn furniture into your home's exterior and knock over trees. The freezing temperatures can also cause what would have otherwise been rain to end up falling as frozen sleet or snow. This solid water can penetrate damaged areas that tree limbs may have done to your roof while creating an additional mess inside your attic.
When the storm has blown over, and you discover that the storm was more than just wind and rain, getting things back to normal is going to require knowledgeable professionals who can help you clean up the mess, repair what's damaged, restore your home so that you can prevent additional damage from developing. SERVPRO technicians can cover the roof with tarps, extraction water, dry out the interior of your home and any other ancillary needs. This includes protecting the interior of your home, below the attic, where precipitation in any form will seep down to if given the time to do so.
