It is a fact of our lives, but none of us in Southeast Texas want to hear that a hurricane is approaching our area. When a hurricane does approach our area, we prepare and secure our homes and business property, buy supplies, and we either evacuate or hunker down in a secure place. After a hurricane has moved on, we are oftentimes left with varying amounts of residential or commerical building repairs, property cleanup and sometimes the hurricane leaves worse destruction in its wake.
To have your home or commercial property properly assessed after a hurricane, consider having a local Southeast Texas property inspector to go over any hurricane damage you may have received. By doing so, you will get a clear picture of the repairs needed and to have a plan in returning your home or business back to normal and safe order.
In the event of a hurricane, a major area you will want your property inspector to cover is your home’s roof. If there are missing shingles on your roof roof, or in more serious cases your roof has structural damage, it will be a priority for you to quickly repair these issues to prevent interior damage to your home.
Another major area that you will want an inspector to look at is your electrical components of your home or business to make sure they did not receive damage during the hurricane. An inspector can also check your heating and air systems to know if these sustained any damage. A professional inspector does not do repairs but will be able to tell you if you will need to hire an electrician to do further assessment and suggest any electrical repairs and possible replacements for your home or commercial buidling.
Flooding is a common occurrence and a very serious matter when dealing with a hurricane. If the interior of your home or business experiences any flooding, you may want to consider a mold inspection.
Hurricanes that cause considerable damage also create stress in the lives of property owners, their family members and their employees. When you enlist the help of a professional property inspector to assess hurricane, you can save money and time in the long run.
