Hurricanes are one of the largest natural disasters that can strike almost anywhere around the world as long as conditions are right for a tropical storm to form and grow as it moves along its path.
On average, tropical storms can cause hundreds of millions of dollars worth of damage. Even at their smallest, a tropical storm or Category 1 hurricane is still physically large enough to cover an entire state. Regardless of the force of its winds, all tropical cyclones cause severe damage wherever they land.By the time you’re done reading this article, you’ll know the steps you need to take if your home or property was damaged by a hurricane or tropical storm,and how you can get your property back in shape.
Hurricane season tends to start in June and come to an end when November does. This is because those months have the perfect weather for the development of storm systems in hot tropical waters.
Hurricanes are a massive environmental and economic disruption that can cause immeasurable damage to homes, businesses, or any other property.
Be sure to check your property carefully after a storm, as there are a myriad of damages that could take place as a result of a hurricane:
- Roof Damage – Wind damage to roof tiles or the entire roof being blown apart, crushing damage from debris
- Windows and Door Damage – dents to stormproof windows and doors, cracks to windows, door jambs, and windowsills
- Water Damage – Flooding from the storm itself or storm damage to your roof, windows and doors
- Lightning Damage – this can cause fires or electrical surges
Hurricane damage can range in size and intensity that can affect almost every single area in your home. Even the smallest of storms can lead to catastrophic amounts of damage that you can’t repair easily or affordably on your own.
For most homeowners, the idea of paying even a few thousand dollars on roof repairs or to clear debris away from their property is hard to imagine.
