Your windows keep you and your home safe from the elements, especially during a storm. But depending on the intensity of rain and wind, your windows may shatter or suffer from other kinds of damage. If your windows developed issues due to the storm, make sure to have them repaired or replaced immediately so that you can maintain your privacy, comfort and safety.
Maris Home Improvements, a trusted provider of exterior renovation services, shares a few tips on how to inspect your windows after a storm.
Check for Wind Damage
High-speed winds can be strong enough to shatter unsecured windows. That’s why you should look for signs of wind damage such as cracks, holes or dents in the window glass; broken panes; dented frames, and chipped or cracked paint.
Check for Water Damage
Water damage can sometimes be difficult to recognize, especially by an untrained eye. Typically, one common sign of water damage in windows is moisture buildup or fog between glass panes. If your area has recently experienced a severe storm and you want to ensure everything is OK with your windows, it would be best to hire a professional to do a thorough inspection. Depending on factors like the age of your windows and the extent of the damage, they may recommend repairs or replacement window services.
Call Your Insurance Company and Find a Reliable Contractor
Make sure to document the damage caused by the storm. Take detailed notes and several photos of the damaged areas. Then, don’t forget to contact your insurance company as soon as you can. You should also find a reliable contractor who can help with your insurance claims.
