Our team here at Warren Restoration knows from experience just how bad storm damage can get, and just how much it can devastate the families that have to experience it. If your home has been damaged in a natural disaster, you can turn to our team to get the expert restoration services you need. Of course, even the top-notch restoration services we provide can’t erase the difficulty of the experience, so in this article, we’ll go over three things you can do to protect your home from storm damage in the first place.

  • Keep Up with Home Maintenance- In our experience here at Warren Restoration, a great deal of storm damage can be prevented with some regular upkeep. Missing shingles, for instance, create a gap for wind to get under the surrounding shingles, and thus increase the likelihood of damage. Replacing missing shingles promptly will eliminate those gaps and keep your home much safer. The same principle applies to damaged siding, so make sure to get that repaired too.
  • Trim Your Trees- Another step you can take to prevent storm damage to your home is to care for the trees on your property. Dead or weakened tree limbs can easily break in a storm and do significant damage to whatever they land on, so it’s best to have your trees inspected regularly and have any dead branches removed.
  • Clear Your Yard- A third thing you can do to protect your home from storm damage is to secure any items that are out in your yard before the storm hits. When storm winds blow in, they can pick up the furniture, tools, potted plants, etc. in your yard and hurl them with great force. We at Warren Restoration recommend moving these items indoors until the storm has passed.

"CHRIS SMITH, MY PLUMBER CALLED WARREN RESTORATION AND LITERALLY WITHIN 45 MINUTES THEY WERE AT MY PROPERTY. THEY TOOK CONTROL OF EVERYTHING FROM REMOVING THE FURNITURE, WET CARPET, DRYWALL, AND BASEBOARD. THE COMPANY MADE MY FLOOD VERY EASY TO DEAL WITH, MAKING SURE THEY WERE ON THE PROPERTY WHEN THE INSURANCE ADJUSTER CAME TO VIEW THE DAMAGE. THEY TOOK ALL THE NECESSARY PHOTOS AND WALKED ME THROUGH THE PROCESS I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY. FROM THE OWNER, JOSH WARREN TO HIS EMPLOYEES, THEY WERE PROFESSIONAL, RESPECTFUL AND EXTREMELY HELPFUL. I AM HAPPY TO SAY MY PROPERTY IS DRY AND EVERYTHING HAS BEEN BUILT BACK BETTER THAN BEFORE THE WATER PROBLEM. THANK YOU WARREN RESTORATION!"
