Hail, Wind, Storm, Lightning, Tree Damage Repair

Charlotte, N.C. experiences some of the most extreme weather in the United States; hail storms and tornadoes are common from late spring thru autumn, while hurricane season runs from early June to Thanksgiving. Severe thunderstorms can occur throughout the year, while winter brings the occasional blast of freezing rain and snow. Damaging high winds, hail and flash flooding can wreak havoc on area homes – that’s why That Good Ole Handyman offers complete repair and storm remediation services to homeowners in Charlotte, N.C.

Common Effects of High Winds on Charlotte, N.C. Homes

During a storm, the wind speed and direction changes suddenly and frequently – this puts a tremendous amount of pressure on the roof, windows and doors in a home. These strong, erratic winds can cause roofs to lift away from the surrounding structure; high wind can also cause siding, fascia and trim to become dislodged.

High wind damage frequently includes lifted, twisted or missing roof shingles and downspouts; broken windows, downed fencing and bent or broken garage doors. If the storm included heavy rain, then water damage to interior walls, floors and electrical systems can also occur.

Trees located near homes can also cause problems during high winds; branches can snap off and fall onto buildings, utility lines and vehicles, while entire trees can collapse and smash through houses, resulting in massive structural damage to the property.

Hail Storm Damage

Hailstorms typically affect the roof, gutters, siding and windows of a home, leaving both cosmetic and structural damage. While the extend of the damage can vary depending on the duration of the storm and the size of the hail, broken glass, dented gutters and split roof shingles are common.
