Wind-Driven Rain Flooding in Shreveport Attics
Call SERVPRO When You Have Flood Damage
Flooding that occurs as a direct result of structural breaches caused in a storm can become a challenging obstacle for Shreveport homeowners to restore. While many property owners in the area have invested in forms of flood insurance through their home coverage providers, many of these plans and policies do not cover flooding that can occur from pooling water resulting from wind-driven rain or roof vulnerabilities.
Pre-existing conditions and present weaknesses in structural elements of your property can be enough to reduce or remove coverage for storm flood damage in Shreveport houses. It is essential to know the extent of your policy before you need to delve too deeply into the fine print. Our SERVPRO professionals have become a preferred restoration vendor for many insurance companies in the area, allowing us to arrive and begin evidence and documentation collection to make the claims process as efficient as possible.
Wind-driven rain is a phenomenon in which the severe conditions of the storm can force water into your home through vulnerabilities like missing shingles, broken windows, or damaged siding. Because of how critical these conditions can become when repairs are necessary, and another storm passes through, it is vital to consider not only a team that can help you to dry and protect your investment but also repair any structural damages to the property as well. We have a full team of licensed general contractors that can help with many tasks after severe weather events, including board up and tarping, tree removal, temporary fencing, and eventual full-scale reconstruction.
Addressing the pooling water in the exposed areas of your household falls to the capable functions of our electric sump pump, wet vacuums, and a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers. Working as quickly as possible to dry out the affected region of the house reduces the need for controlled demolition and build back.
Many homeowners are unfamiliar with loopholes and shortcomings in their insurance plans that can have them paying out of pocket for restoration after severe storms. Whether you need help after a disaster strikes or want to repair vulnerable areas of your home before wind-driven rain can flood your residence, our SERVPRO of South Shreveport team can help. Give us a call anytime at (318) 865-4655.
