Four Types of Storm Damage: 3. Impact
Noted below are the four (4) major types of storm damage and are categorized as follows:
Part 1 of our Storm Damage blog focused on Hail, Part 2 on Wind, today's blog is going to focus on Impact and the damages impact can have on the home.
Impact damage is the result of damage to the home or property as a result of an object landing, falling or being thrust into your home.
One example of this would be a tree being uprooted by heavy winds and landing on your roof, potentially ripping a hole into your home and even the ability to damage the stability of the structure itself.
Another example would be strong winds blowing over a picnic table/chair on your patio or deck and striking your window or door.
When we think of tornadoes, we think of ultimate destruction. As true as that is, many homes are damaged through impalement whereby building materials, tree limbs and other materials are blown into a home.
Water damage is the final type of storm damage to be discussed in this series, so stay tuned...
