Jarvis Iowa office was involved in several large repair and reconstruction projections over the past few months following a severe wind storm that swept across the State in 2011. The severe storm carried winds in excess of seventy miles per hour, leading to all types of property damage issues. Numerous properties suffered from fallen tree on roofs, broken windows and structural issues as a result of debris blowing around. The above subject property suffered several areas of severe damage to the siding from the storm.Large wind gusts will often lead to problems across multiple areas for homeowners. The roof is one of the areas that is most susceptible to receiving damage from winds over 60 miles per hour. The large wind gusts can quickly find shingles that are old and not attached well, quickly dislodging these, especially on two story homes. Fallen trees can cause thousands of dollars of damages, from collapsing roofs and walls to destroying siding, gutters and breaking windows. Large wind storms are one of the largest causes of property damage for homeowners and one of the costliest for insurance carriers to deal with. From storms, to tornadoes and hurricanes, strong winds are extremely difficult to predict and prepare your home against. Maintaining your property be keeping your landscaping free of dying trees, broken branches and overgrown areas is one of the only ways to prevent damages.
