FAQs related to Storm Damage To Your Home

Can my carpet be saved after a flood or water damage?

Wet carpet can harbor bacteria depending on the type of water it was flooded with, and the amount of time it has been wet.. It can also begin to delaminate, which can prevent it from being re-installed. In all cases the wet pad needs to be removed and replaced. On occasion the carpet can be dried with-out replacing, but it needs to have a new pad underneath.  Always make sure the carpet is completely dry before relaying it on the pad. In most cases, the carpet should be fully replaced, too.

Does Restore Pros repair storm damage or tree damage?

Yes. We provide board up services, emergency tree removal, and rebuilding services. Our rebuilding services include shingle and gutter replacement. We make things simple by providing all the services you need. No need in hiring multiple contractors and dealing with the insurer alone. 

Do I need multiple estimates for the insurance company?

No, you are not required to obtain multiple estimates for an insurance loss. The cost of repair will vary depending on the type of damage that you have, when the damage occurred, and the severity of the damage. When it comes to water damage, it is important to get the clean up and drying process started as soon as possible to avoid potential mold growth which can lead to more cost. Restore Pros works with all insurance companies and uses software and pricing that most all insurance carriers use.

What is depreciation and recoverable depreciation?

Depreciation is a reduction in the value of an asset with the passage of time, due in particular to wear and tear. Recoverable depreciation is when the insurance company refunds you the depreciation cost, or difference between replacement cost value and actual cash value, once restoration repairs are completed. Insurance claims can be complex and we help make it simple.

Types of Storm Damage 

Understanding the different types of storm damage can be crucial when dealing with insurance claims and home restoration. Here, we delve into the various forms of damage your property might experience during a storm and how Restore Pros can assist in each case. 

Wind Damage

Wind can wreak havoc on your home, causing issues like torn-off shingles, broken windows, or structural damage to sidings. We are adept at assessing wind damage and initiating immediate repairs to safeguard your property from further complications like water intrusion. Wind Damage can be caused by winds that are in excess of 50 MPH.

Flood Damage

Floods can lead to devastating effects on homes, resulting in ruined appliances, structural damage to walls and floors, and potential mold growth. We offer flood cleanup services, including water and sewage removal, drying and dehumidifying your space, and repairing any structural damage to restore your home back to its original state. Flood storm damage happens when creeks, rivers, streams, or lakes overflow. If left untreated the moisture from this water can begin to grow mold as well as cause problems with your foundation, drywall, flooring, and personal belongings.

Lightning Damage

Lightning strikes can cause severe damage to your home, including electrical fires or compromised structural integrity. Our team is skilled at assessing and addressing lightning damage, whether it's repairing fire damage, checking electrical systems, or ensuring your home's structure is safe. Usually if lightning hits your home, it will travel through wiring, plumbing, cable, telephone lines, antennas, or satellite dishes. It can ruin electrical appliances and cause other problems with plumbing, or structural damages to property. Restore Pros has a licensed electrician on staff, so you can feel confident that the repair will be done correctly and meet all code requirements.

Hail Damage

Hail can cause significant damage to your roof, sidings, and windows. Restore Pros’ professionals are experienced in identifying and repairing hail damage, ensuring your home’s protective barriers are robust and your interiors remain safe and dry. The most common area of the home to receive hail damage is the roof. If left alone, hail damage can allow water to leak through into your home, producing a host of problems. Call Restore Pros for a roof inspection to determine if repair is needed.

Tree Damage

Storms often lead to fallen trees or branches, which can cause extensive damage to your property. We offer quick and efficient cleanup of tree debris and any associated damage to your home's structure. Our team is adept at dealing with such emergencies, making sure the damage is effectively repaired and your home's safety is restored. Tree Damage can occur during ice, snow, or windstorms. When a tree is affected by any of these elements, it can end up falling on a home. If something like this happens, call Restore Pros trusted team to remove the tree, tarp the roof and board up any openings. Then we can begin the home repairs necessary to make your home look good as new.

Roof Damage

Roof damage is common in storms, leading to leaks, structural damage, or even collapse in severe cases. We offer comprehensive roof repair and restoration services. We not only patch up leaks but also address larger structural issues ensuring your roof can withstand future storms.
