Gen Ex is your best choice for emergency services on your home. Our experts have the knowledge and experience you can rely on to fix your home and prevent further damage from occurring.
However, when unexpected tragedy does strike your home there are certain things you should keep in mind that can minimize future damage and keep you and your family safe
Emergency Roof Tips:
If lightning strikes your roof: make sure that there is no fire from the strike. Stay away from all electronics because they could have been damaged and fried from the strike. Call your insurance agency and report the lightning strike and then call us at Gen Ex. We will work with your insurance company and repair all the damage from the strike.
If hail damage has occurred: Hail damage can be tricky because it can rip shingles off the roof and cause potential leaks that you will not notice until it is too late. Letting a leak go in the roof is inviting harmful mold and other problems into your attic. One of the best ways to test to see if your roof has a hole in it is to have someone in your attic while you spray the roof with water from your hose. If there is a hole or a leak, Gen Ex will help you repair it quickly and properly.
If a tree falls on your roof: If a tree falls on your house, leave the house. The structural integrity could be compromised in ways that you can’t see! Grab any necessary stuff because you might not be staying there for awhile. Call your insurance company and call us at Gen Ex. We can help advise you of any problems that might have happened from the tree damage to your home.
Emergency Siding Tips:
If a storm is ripping through the area with high winds and hail this could damage and even rip the siding off your house. There are a couple things you can do to help mitigate the damage:
Don’t Tear the Siding Off: If you have siding that has come loose from the house and is sticking out, please, do not grab the piece and rip it off your house. It might be able to be salvaged however tearing siding off might actually create a bigger problem by affecting other pieces.
Be Careful Near the Edges: Be careful walking by the edges of the siding because they are sharp and can scratch or cut you very easily depending on the siding you have.
Collect the Pieces: Collect the pieces of siding around your property so they don’t blow into other neighbor’s yards or down the street. When it comes to siding you never know what can be salvageable for your home so it is a good idea to keep what you can.
