Storm & Wind Damage
The list of natural phenomena that can cause catastrophic damage to your property, like the events themselves, is frightening. Floods can inundate your home or office, lightning strikes and thunderstorms can cause fires, hurricanes and tornadoes can send trees crashing onto your roof and rip up shingles, and ice and snow storms can burst pipes and result in dangerous ice dams. The extent of damage is often overwhelming. Guardian Restoration can have our experts on-site as a matter of urgency to assess your property as soon as the storm danger has passed, and provide a cost estimate for the services required. These include:
• Emergency board-up
• Structural stabilization
• Repairs for water and wind damage (including structural drying)
• Removal and trimming of trees
• Removal of debris
• Reconstruction services
Our aim is to restore your property to its state before the storm hit. We will repair damage to your roofing, siding, windows, and guttering as well as use state-of-the-art technology to extract excess water to ensure the integrity of the walls, floors, and ceilings – and prevent the spread of mold. If there has been a fire, we follow the same protocol used in our fire and smoke damage assessments. This includes containment, soot and ash removal, and the neutralization of toxic odors, as well as the necessary repairs to ensure your electrics are safe.
Ice dams, which build as a result of an uneven melting of snow, pose another threat to pipes, guttering, and roofs. The meltwater can seep into the walls and ceilings, and tear off shingles and guttering. Snow and ice on the roof can lead to a complete collapse. In all these cases, it requires dedicated professionals who know what to look for and take preventative measures against any further damage. Even though the storm may have passed, without treatment, the danger continues to grow in the hours and days that follow. Guardian Restoration’s professionals are experienced at handling the full range of potential storms:
• Ice and hail storms
• Flash flooding
• Big freezes and ice dams
• Lightning strikes
• Wind storms
One unique part of storm and wind damage restoration is the clean-up of widespread debris. In its most dramatic form, entire trees may need to be removed. It is common for broken glass to be strewn across the property, as well as rocks, garbage, leaves, tree limbs, and even furniture. Often, you may not even know where some of the debris has come from in the wake of a storm that lashes a neighborhood. Guardian Restoration staff are also diligent and expert at removing any snow and ice that may otherwise slow down recovery.
As with all emergency damage services, there is no time to waste. The longer the delay, the greater the risk of contamination through the fire, smoke and water, and the danger to the structural integrity of your property. We scrupulously follow all occupational safety compliance regulations to have you back, without harm, in your property as soon as possible.
