Missing shingles on a roof due to wind damage

Three Types Of Damages You May See After A Storm 

After a storm in Jacksonville, FL, your local storm restoration service may need to perform a tear out in order to restore a damaged business space. There are a number of reasons for doing this, including preventing further damage. Here are three damage types you may see after a storm.

1. Wind Damage

Many storms also bring heavy winds with them. These winds can cause problems by blowing looks stones, branches, and other items into the building, as well as tearing up loose shingles on the roof. All of these have the potential to lead to a leak which can lead to other types of damage. A local restoration service can help make repairs to these areas and other parts of the business affected by storm damage.

2. Water Damage

One of the most common damage types to see after a storm is water damage. This can be caused by leaks, backup or flooding and may result in the need for a tear out, which is the process of cutting out walls about a foot above the flood line and replacing it with brand new material. You may also see this type of damage lead to warped flooring, cracked stone or tile, soggy carpeting, and potential mold problems.

3. Mold Damage

Stormwater can also lead to potential problems with mold. Mold grows best in dim and damp areas, and if the water is allowed to sit after a storm spaces like these can be created. You may find mild problems around any areas that have developed leaked, or been affected by flooding. Fortunately, your restoration team should know to look for these problems.

After a storm, you may find several forms of damage to your business. Wind, water, and mold damage can all be a result of a storm in the area and in sever conditions may even leave your business in need of a tear out before repairs can be completed. Fortunately, a local restoration service can help.
