How to Protect Your Home from Nature's Fury 

Storms are a force of nature that can wreak havoc on communities, and Kennesaw is no stranger to their might. Understanding the anatomy of a storm and the specific types of damage it can cause to structures is crucial for homeowners. This knowledge not only helps in preparing and protecting homes but also in seeking the right help for storm damage restoration.  

The Science Behind Storms 

At the heart of storm damage is the power unleashed by various elements of the storm: 

  • High Winds: The most visible and immediate threat, high winds can tear off roof shingles, break windows, and even topple entire trees. They create a vacuum effect that can lift roofs and push walls outward. 

  • Heavy Rain: Prolonged rainfall leads to flooding, which can weaken foundations, cause mold and mildew growth, and damage interiors and belongings. 

  • Hail: Though less common, hail can pummel roofs, denting or cracking shingles and siding, leading to vulnerabilities in the home's exterior. 

  • Lightning: A direct lightning strike can cause fires, electrical failures, and damage to electronic devices. 

Case Studies: From Damage to Restoration 

Different types of damage call for unique restoration approaches, as seen in these Kennesaw case studies: 

  • Wind Damage Restoration: A local home lost part of its roof to high winds. The restoration process involved securing the home with tarps to prevent further damage, followed by repairing the roof structure and replacing shingles. 

  • Flood Recovery: Another case involved a basement flooded by heavy rains. The focus was on extracting the water, drying the area, and then restoring damaged walls and flooring. 

  • Hail Damage Repair: After a hailstorm, a home required a comprehensive assessment to identify all impacts on the roof and siding. The restoration included replacing damaged shingles and siding panels to restore the home's integrity. 

  • Lightning Strike Response: A house struck by lightning needed electrical system repairs and smoke damage restoration, demonstrating the need for a multi-faceted approach to storm damage recovery.
