It’s never good news when the weather in Saint Louis gets severe. Severe weather often means gale-force winds, heavy hail and flooding. And right now, it’s flooding that is making life difficult for our neighbors in the Saint Louis area and others in Iowa and Illinois. As this is being written, this levees are holding back the water, but the river has not even crested yet. At a time like this we are very glad to be able to help people get their lives back on track by providing emergency restoration services.
This is a time we would rather not be needed – we’d rather hear that everyone came through this flood high and dry but we are already seeing that evacuations may be needed. Up the river in Clarksville and Louisiana, Missouri, some homes are already flooded or are in imminent danger. Fortunately, most of the rain seems to be over for the moment so the worst should be past us very soon.
Getting the Water Out Fast is Essential
In our years of doing roofing, we found that to help people return to their homes after storm damage, we had to offer more than just roof repair. So we expanded our services to include dealing with water damage. When a home has been infiltrated by water, it’s essential to remove the water and dry everything out thoroughly before mold can begin to grow. We’ve got the equipment, manpower, training and practical experience to get the job done fast and right.
Water Can Come from Anywhere
That’s the problem with water – it can come in your front door if there’s a flood, through the walls if your siding is damaged, around windows if they need repair, or right through the roof after hail or high winds. We can handle it all. If your home has suffered storm damage, we can draw on our many strengths to put it right again, allowing your family to return home while feeling safe and secure.
First the tornado in Hazelwood, now floods upriver. Please call on us if your home has been damaged by water, wind or hail. This is our home too, and we know how families can struggle after this kind of severe weather. You can be forced out of your own home after a tree limb falls or high winds take part of your roof. Whether your need is emergency restoration services or roofing, we can help.
Remember that not all storm damage is visible from the outside. For example, hail can create bruises in your roofing material that can turn into leaks. We know what to look for.
If you have any doubts about your roof, windows or siding, call us now for a free Healthy Home Visit. Call us even if it’s still raining – we’ll get an inspector out as soon as it’s safe to climb up on your roof. The sooner you call, the sooner we can inspect and reassure you or let you know exactly what you need to do to make it secure.
