Weathering the Storm

Storm Damage

Spring in Indiana is the time of year when the leaves grow, the birds return, and also when severe storms tend to strike. High winds can cause damage to homes. From falling trees on the property to even compromising the structure of your home.

Types of Damage

If your windows are shattered or damaged from a storm, it is important to replace them quickly so you can protect yourself and your home from outside elements. It is also important for your privacy. Here are some common types of damage to look for when the storm has passed and you can inspect safely.

Heavy Rain leaking into aged windows can cause structural damage over time.  It is important to regularly check your windows. Make sure your windows have a tight seal, and that it is not drafty. Even without stormy weather present, outside air can enter the home. This can increase your utility costs to heat or cool the home.

Physical damage from a fallen tree or flying debris from heavy winds can be quite obvious with shattered glass and shards present or with cracks at the very least.  Both can present issues with excess moisture and unwanted access from the elements into your home.

Hail damage can also be easily visible with cracks or dents.  The extent of damage can vary based on the severity of the storm and the size of hail.  If you are not sure if your home experienced damage from the storm, you might consider contacting an expert for inspection.
