When a storm has caused much damage to your house and property, you don’t have to worry too much. Just call Choice Property Restoration and we’ll have your home back to normal in no time.

In Middle Tennessee, we have to be aware of and prepared for serious storms. We’ve all been taught to take tornado warnings seriously, and the flood of 2010 — with the accompanying moisture damage to so many homes here — made us all understand that there’s value in expecting the unexpected.

Part of being prepared for storm damage means knowing where you’ll turn if your home is affected. At Choice Property Restoration, we specialize in reacting quickly and effectively to storm damage, so that you can get your life (and home) back to normal as quickly as possible. And time really is of the essence when it comes to home restoration after a storm — storm damage often goes hand-in-hand with moisture damage, and the more time water gets to work into the building materials of your home, the more extensive the damage will be.

If your home has been damaged in a storm, Choice Property Restoration can help — we’re ready to respond when you need us. If you’re researching Middle Tennessee restoration or emergency services so you can be prepared in case of storm damage, you’re making a smart choice — and we hope we can be part of your peace of mind.

Some Common Storm Damage Repairs

If your home has been damaged in a storm, it can feel overwhelming — you have a lot to deal with in a short span of time, and in the middle of it, your living situation has been turned upside down. Part of our goal at Choice Property Restoration is to help make the process of home restoration and repairs less overwhelming. With over 35 years of experience in the restoration and construction industry, we’ve dealt with just about any type of storm damage you can come across. We’ll respond quickly, thoroughly analyze your damage and give you a clear, thorough explanation of what needs to be done to get your home, and your life, back to normal.

A few of the most common repair needs we see with storm damage:

Roof Repairs

From wind to hail to fallen trees, Middle Tennessee storms can wreak havoc on roofs. If a limb damages your roof in the middle of the night, you have somewhere to turn — Choice Property Restoration will respond quickly to protect the interior of your home, and make the repairs necessary to get your roof back in shape.

Water Damage Repair

Whether you’re dealing with a flooded lower level or rain damage that came through an affected roof, we can help. Choice Property Restoration specializes in thorough moisture damage repair, including properly drying out any affected materials using high-tech tools that can save surfaces like floors and carpet from permanent damage. If any materials, from your walls and floors to ceilings, can’t be saved, we can make the necessary repairs and replacements.

Stopping Mold, Mildew And Odors

Addressing and repairing initial water damage is only the first step — part of our storm-repair job is to ensure that moisture is totally removed from structures and materials so that secondary problems, like dangerous mold growth or lingering odors, don’t crop up. Using high-speed air movers and dehumidifiers and high-tech moisture detection tools, we make sure moisture is removed quickly and thoroughly in response to storm damage. Those steps can stop immediate storm damage from turning into a long-term frustration.

At Choice Property Restoration, we’re prepared to respond to your storm damage, whether you just need a small area of your roof tarped and repaired or major renovation/remodeling work. If you need help, give Choice Property Restoration a call — we’re always ready to respond in a heartbeat!

Emergency Checklist for Homeowners

In order to avoid panic and not knowing what to do, always have an emergency checklist ready.

In order to avoid panic and not knowing what to do, always have an emergency checklist ready.

When preparing for an emergency, having the most detailed and informative information is essential. You don’t want to forget something when packing and/or making an emergency plan or checklist. You’ll want to find out what type(s) of disaster(s) to which your area is prone so you can plan accordingly for them. For example, if you happened to live on the west coast you’d want to plan accordingly for earthquakes, if you lived by the water hurricanes would be something for which you’d want to prepare, and living in our neck of the woods tornados are an ever-present threat.

The Benefits of Being Prepared

There are a number of things to gather when preparing for an emergency. An emergency checklist is essential so you don’t forget anything. You want to write down any important items you may want to take out with you when leaving. You also want to include any first aid supplies, things you might need to turn off, and also bring a list of phone numbers along with you. Emergency numbers are those of the local fire department, police station, poison control center, and other pertinent government buildings in your area. You also want to ensure that you have the numbers of your loved ones with you so you can check on them periodically.

When in Doubt, Use an Emergency Route

Create an emergency evacuation plan to ensure that you know the best routes to get out of your home as well. There may be a few different routes, and knowing the best one to take if another were to be blocked off will better prepare you (and will also provide you with a little additional peace of mind). Write these routes down, and create a place to meet up if the family becomes separated.

Make Sure Everyone Gets Out

You want to ensure that your entire family knows how to turn off any gas, water, or electrical outlets if necessary. This is important when there is an electrical storm or perhaps a fire. Once you’re in a safe place, and everything is set, you want to ensure that you check on anyone else who might be in trouble and in need of assistance (e.g., elderly friends and family members). This is to ensure their safety once you and your family are out of harm’s way as a result of the emergency situation at hand. You should also ensure that your children know all of the pertinent emergency numbers and when to call each of them when in trouble.

There are a number of reasons why all of these points (and probably many others) should be followed, the number one reason being to ensure everyone’s safety during an emergency situation. Emergencies can happen at any time, and being prepared provides you and your family with the best chance of being safe when all is said and done. Ensuring that your child knows what should be done is also beneficial in case you don’t have access to a phone or don’t have the ability get out of the home or find help. The best way to provide for everyone’s safety during an emergency situation is to prepare for any and all situations that could potentially arise. Time is of the essence when disaster strikes.
