Storm Damage Repair

A severe storm recently hit my neighborhood and may have damaged my home's exterior. What should I do?

Storm damage is one of the worst things that can happen to your home. Thunderstorms in Southeastern Wisconsin tend to deliver strong winds and large hail that can cause damage to roofs, siding, and trim. Don’t worry! Contact a local professional exterior remodeling contractor such as Larson’s Home Exteriors for assistance with a thorough inspection and a quote for repairs (if needed).

Beware of hidden damage to your roof or siding.
In some cases, the damage is easy to spot. Missing shingles or damaged siding are clear signs that you’ll need help from an experienced exterior remodeling contractor. But some damage isn’t as apparent. Even small hailstones can damage asphalt shingles, causing them to crack and lose their gritty protective surface. High winds can loosen shingles and siding and allow water leakage, inviting mold and wood rot below the surface. An inspection by a trusted local contractor can help you determine if you have any hidden damage before it gets worse with time.
