Bloomfield Storm Damage: Is It Ever Minor?

4/5/2017 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Bloomfield Storm Damage: Is It Ever Minor? Left alone, minor damage often becomes major damage.

In the Bloomfield region, some storms may not seem very powerful, but weaker storms can be deceiving. Hearing about a predicted minor snow, rain, wind, or other storm may cause you to think that there’s little possibility your Bloomfield home or business will suffer storm damage. However, storm damage doesn’t always mean three feet of water in your basement or a 100 foot spruce tree sitting in your bedroom.

Storm damage as minor as losing a few roof shingles or having a screen door blown off its hinges can hurt. Both of these situations and many others require repairs. Left alone, minor damage (like a slow leak or a little crack) can worsen over time. Preventing minor storm damage from becoming a major issue can stop higher repair bills from sneaking up on you.

It’s like having a pebble in your shoe. That’s a small problem. But try walking a few miles with that pebble. The longer you walk, the more damage that pebble can do, right?

Minor Leads To Major
Bloomfield homeowners and business owners who don’t repair minor damage often are forced to face much greater damage in time.  SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield can help you make minor repairs before they become major headaches. Fix those cracked windows before they break. Repair that minor crack in your foundation before it deepens and spreads.  Clean up that small section of mold before grows. By avoiding procrastinating you avoid the risk of major repairs and major inconveniences in the future.

Welcome Mat For Rodents
Any opening (missing shingles, peeling siding, etc.) sends a welcome mat for water and insects, and rodents to enter. Larger openings in your roof can permit rodents and birds to come in and make their homes in your attic space. Some rodents are more damaging than others and won't stay in the attic but will find their way into other areas of your home. If your windows are damaged, your home is at increased risk for burglaries.

Extensive Restoration Training
Because we are SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield, we have extensive training in all aspects of repairs and restorations. That’s true for both residential and commercial properties. We have completed jobs of all sizes over the years, and we can successfully handle any size disaster, including the one you’re facing. Our certifications cover the many different cleaning and restorative types of work that storm damage can cause.

Having the training required to professionally repair your home's siding, shingles, and other components of your roof, gutters, windows and frames, screen doors, and more is important. We are ready to restore your home to its previous beautiful condition. Minor repairs now can provide major protection for your home or business later.
