Read on to learn more about the types of storms and the damage they cause, including:
  • Rain storms
  • Hail storms
  • Snow storms

Rain Storms

Heavy rainfall is a major cause of flooding. Even if you do not live in a flood zone, poor drainage can result in the accumulation of water in and around the home. Basements are particularly vulnerable to flooding, so you should request an inspection to find out whether water is properly draining away from your home. Even with proper drainage, a compromised foundation can allow for leakage. Roofs that are damaged or made from poor quality materials are also vulnerable to damage from rain storms. When water pools on roofs, the materials can become soggy, leading to the accumulation of debris and mold that ultimately rot holes in the roof if left unaddressed.

Hail Storms

Hail storms typically accompany severe thunderstorms, and the size of the hail can range from as small as a pebble to as large as a grapefruit. Not only does hail pose an immediate safety risk to anyone standing outside in a hail storm, it can cause property damage as well. Cars, roofs, windows and other structures around the home are all vulnerable to damage from hail.

Snow Storms

Winter storms result in heavy snowfall that can blanket the roads, trap homeowners inside and lead to flooding when the snow melts. As temperatures rise, snow that has accumulated around the home turns to slush and water, which can result in a flooded basement. Anything around the home that is vulnerable to moisture, from piles of debris to untreated wood structures, is vulnerable to a snow storm. In many cases, snow storms can result in downed power lines that leave your home without electricity for hours or even days at a time. Keeping a generator in your home is a good way to mitigate the damage and inconvenience caused by these storms. You should also keep snow shovels, gloves and other cold weather cleanup gear in a dry location that is easy to access before cold weather strikes. These types of storms can cause serious damage to your home and property, and while prevention is key, sometimes disaster strikes no matter how well-prepared you are.
