Because of the frequency of cold fronts and dry line development, late spring and early summer are the peak seasons for storms in Oklahoma. These storms can be severe, resulting in the production of hail, high winds, and tornadoes. In fact, tornadoes, which are a particular hazard in Oklahoma, also occur most often during the spring, with around 3/4 of the state’s tornadoes occurring in April, May, and June. Aside from being extremely frightening, these kinds of storms can also cause serious damage to both the interior and exterior of a home. Obtaining the services of an experienced emergency services professional can make all the difference in mitigating damage inflicted on a property, so if your home was recently damaged in a storm, it is critical to speak with an experienced restoration contractor who can begin the process of inspecting and repairing your property.

 

Roof Damage 

Oklahoma storms are often accompanied by hail and strong winds, both of which can cause substantial roof damage, including leaks, missing or damaged shingles, and frame damage. If left unaddressed, leaky roofs could allow water to make its way into the home itself, causing structural damage and mold growth. In order to remove moisture before it can cause too much damage, an experienced restoration team will use specialized air moving equipment to help enhance evaporation at the surface level. Dehumidifiers are then used to extract the remaining water vapor from their air. It will also be necessary to repair or replace the roof to ensure that water does not continue to leak into the house.

 

Siding Damage

Heavy winds, hail, and flooding can also cause siding and window damage, so as part of the cleanup process, our team boards up and replaces any broken windows and siding. If necessary, we clean up and restore the interior of the residence as well, which often includes carpet cleaning and furniture repair.

 

Because storm damage is often so severe, our team may be required to provide emergency board-up services prior to making any repairs or beginning the cleanup process. If the storm involved large pieces of hail, lightning, tornadoes, or thunderstorms, it may also be necessary to provide structural stabilization. For instance, in many cases, property damage is primarily caused by uprooted trees that have been blown over during a storm. In these situations, our team will remove the trees and ensure that the area is boarded up and protected from further damage until repairs can be made.
