Be Prepared For Tornadoes To Cause Structural Damage To Your Property
Spring marks the start of the tornado season, which usually peaks in April through June. However, with climate change, this seems to be changing, with 2018 having its first tornado of the season in May.
Tornadoes are severe storm systems that are usually are accompanied by thunderstorms, rain, powerful winds and hail. This means properties are exposed to experiencing flooding and structural damage.
Despite the damages that tornadoes can impose on your property, there are some actions you can take to safeguard the place before a storm hits.
The winds caused by a tornado can be strong enough to rip right through your doors, so if you live in a place that is susceptible to tornadoes it would be wise to install doors that have been approved by the Wind Science and Engineering Research Center.
Your garage door is actually the weakest link when it comes to a tornado, because once it is torn off the home can become pressurized enough to blow the roof off. By installing a windowless garage door that is less than 9-feet-wide you will have a better chance of sustaining a tornado.
Obviously you want to make sure your roof stays on, even if your garage door becomes damaged, and the best way to do that is by installing galvanized steel hurricane clips. These clips create a stronger connection between the top plate of the roof to the rafters.
You can also shutter your windows to prevent the powerful winds from getting inside your property and pressurizing it. This will also stop debris from breaking in through the windows at high speeds.
It is important to remember that even by taking all the necessary precautions your property can still incur major structural damage when a tornado strikes. Call 911 Restoration Wichita when you need immediate assistance and we will ensure you that help is on the way.
Ice Storms May Lead To Water Damage And Power Outages
Wichita is prone to ice storms, which have the ability to cover a large area and cause power outages and property damage.
The freezing rain is heavy enough to down trees and power lines, created widespread power outages. This loss of power has affected hundreds of thousands of people in some cases, making travel dangerous and greatly affecting your daily life.
The ice and sleet can also accumulate on roof tops. The weight of the ice can sometimes become so great that the roof will cave in. Needless to say, this creates massive internal property damage.
Water damage is also a byproduct of ice storms. When the ice eventually melts it can cause leakage and even flooding, depending on the amount of ice that was created. The freezing temperatures can create pipe bursts that can lead to flood damage.
Our disaster restoration Wichita professionals are ready and waiting to assist you with any of these issues, even if it means coming out in the middle of an ice storm. So, call us today and we will make sure you get a fresh start.
