Water Damage Repair Fixes Effects of Worst Storms in Lafayette
Twisters, Wind, Rain? You Need Water Damage Repair
Lafayette's weather includes powerful storms, and many bring tornadoes and heavy wind. Afterward, many residential and commercial properties require water damage repair work.
SERVPRO is always nearby and quick to respond to property owners in Lafayette needing water damage repair. The rain associated with these storms can cause flooding of entire neighborhoods and isolated areas. We can handle repairing damage from the severest of storms.
Some of the damage that might escape detection by a homeowner involves:
- Roofing, and
- Your home's foundation.
Any twisted or broken siding might allow water into your home, damage insulation, and allow vermin to enter. Sometimes, the wiring on the exterior of your house sits underneath your siding. Hiding wiring in this manner provides an uninterrupted look and gives wiring an additional layer of protection. Gaps in your siding can place hidden wiring at risk, increasing the possibility of a fire or electrical shock. Minor repairs now mean you won't need more expensive ones later.
Problems with your roof don't require a tree falling on it. High winds that carry debris can also cause problems. Small gaps can let in enormous amounts of rain, soaking your attic area and everything in it. Small spaces between shingles can allow ice dams to form. These heavy blocks of ice can ruin your roof, making the preventive steps we take now worth the investment.
Your foundation might sit below ground, out of your view when you are outside. However, look at the ground's saturation after a storm. Additional pressure is placed on your foundation walls if the soil stays soggy for a long time. Checking inside your basement for cracks, dampness, and signs of mold or mildew is a good idea because these indicate damage to your foundation.
We use heavy-duty tarps to cover any gaps within the siding or roof of your home. We clean and make minor repairs and work in tandem with highly qualified local contractors for extensive storm damage. When your basement is collecting water, we recommend the installation of a sump pump.
