Disaster Damage

What Is Disaster Damage?

As Colorado residents, we’re blessed to experience 300 days of sunshine every year, as well as the four seasons in all of their glory. Those seasons sometimes bring with them torrential storms though, which can lead to damage to your home.

From windy days that can loosen siding or roof shingles to rainstorms that can cause water damage and hail damage, and summer wildfires that singe anything in its path, it’s important to be prepared for different types of storms and have a dedicated team to help in the event of disaster damage.

At Koalaty Siding Repair, we can help with damaged siding, as well as roof repairs, replacement windows, and fixing whatever damage your home has sustained because of a storm. If you’re in need of emergency siding repairs, contact our team today to schedule an appointment.

Hail Damage

Did you know that hail damage is the number-one event that homeowners file claims for through their homeowners insurance each year? Depending on the size of hailstones and how fast they fall, they can cause varying degrees of damage to your home, such as:

  • Dents to aluminum siding and roofing
  • Dents and damage to gutter systems
  • Cracks in vinyl siding
  • Dents and cracked in asphalt shingles
  • Cracks and breaks in wood shake siding or roofing

While you can’t prevent a hailstorm from occurring (though we wish we could), there are ways to prepare your home for storms to minimize damage.

Protect Your Home from Hail Damage

There are steps you can take to prevent serious damage to your home in the event of a hailstorm. While there’s nothing you can do to determine the size and speed of hailstones, there are ways to maintain your home in order to limit the amount of damage that a hailstorm can cause.

One way to protect your home from extensive hail damage is to inspect your roof regularly. If you’re not a fan of heights, we get it, and we don’t want you to put your health and safety at risk just to ensure your roof is in good condition. That’s why Koalaty Siding Repair offers routine roofing inspections to keep your roofing system in the best condition possible. Our team follows special safety guidelines while inspecting your roof, and we’re trained to detect and address a variety of minor issues to prevent greater damage.

Another way to protect your home against hail damage is to invest in impact-resistant material like reinforced shingles. If you’re looking into roof replacement options, talk to our team about the different materials we offer that increase the durability of your roof against hail damage.

You can also prevent hail damage by keeping the trees and shrubbery around your home properly pruned. Hailstones can damage overgrown foliage and break branches. If these branches are close to your home or stretch over your roof, they can break windows, damage walls, and collapse your roof. Talk to your local landscape maintenance company about routine lawn and tree care if you’re not comfortable taking care of this yourself.

Detecting Hail Damage

When you suspect your home has sustained hail damage, it’s important to identify the extent of damage so you know what all needs to be repaired. Our team at Koalaty Siding Repair can also help you inspect your home for signs of hail damage and provide an estimate on repair costs. If you’re inspecting your home yourself, keep an eye out for these signs of hail damage:

  • Dented gutters and downspouts
  • Dented, dinged, warped, and buckling windowsills or siding
  • Gaps between layers of siding
  • Dimples, cracks, or dents in siding
  • Dents or cracks in your patio
  • Dents in metal flashing or roof valleys
  • Cracked, bald, squishy, or missing shingles
  • Water leaks in your attic or water stains on your ceiling
  • Damage to exterior exhaust fans or ducts

If you’re unsure about the severity of damage to your home, contact our team at Koalaty Siding Repair. We are happy to inspect your home for signs of hail damage and help you prevent further damage down the road.

Wind Damage

Wind is an incredible force — you can’t see it, but you can feel it, and you can experience the effects of it. Changes in air temperature can lead to light breezes or ferocious windstorms. On the Front Range especially, windstorms are more common and can cause varying degrees of damage to your home.

After experiencing high winds, it’s important to inspect your home for signs of damage and contact Koalaty Siding Repair right away to schedule any necessary repairs. For help identifying wind damage, contact our team to schedule an inspection.

According to the National Weather Service, cities along the foothills are especially prone to high winds. Wind can travel at speeds of 60 mph to near 100 mph, and even exceed 100 mph in extreme cases. Understanding the effect that different wind speeds have on your home can help you prepare for and prevent wind damage.

At just 45 mph, wind can tear down tree branches and limbs, which can fall on your home and cause serious destruction. It can also blow off loose shingles from your roof, leaving it exposed to moisture damage.

As wind nears 60 mph, it can tear down and even uproot trees, as well as rip off shingles from your roof. This puts your home at even greater risk of damage.

At 75 mph, wind can wipe out several trees, flip top-heavy vehicles like mobile homes, and cause severe damage to low-slope or flat-top roofs. In these instances, it’s important to have vehicles stored somewhere safe, keep trees at a safe distance from your home, and ensure that your roof has been well-maintained to prevent extensive damage.

When wind reaches speeds of 90 mph or higher, it can cause significant roof damage and require a roof replacement. While these high-speed winds are rare, the hazards they present make it vital for homeowners to maintain the quality of their roof and property.

Inspect Your Home for Wind Damage

After a windstorm, take some time to inspect your home for damage and clean up any debris that you can. It’s also a good idea to schedule an inspection with a professional like Koalaty Siding Repair because we are trained to check for hidden damage that might otherwise go unnoticed after a bout of high winds.

Wind Damage Img

Check your roof for cracked, ripped, or missing shingles. You may even notice roof debris in your yard after high winds have torn shingles off of your roof. One type of wind damage that’s difficult for homeowners to identify is loosened roof fasteners like screws or nails. This happens when the wind lifts the roof decking away from the framing, leaving your roof susceptible to moisture damage or further wind damage.

During high winds, doors and windows can also sustain damage. The pressure from the wind can cause glass to break, and doors to bend in their frame and even break open. Inspect your doors and windows for any cracks or warping, and replace or repair them immediately if there’s damage. If wind blows doors and windows open, it can build pressure inside of your home, which then puts pressure on your roof from the inside.

As you inspect the exterior of your home for damage, take time to pick up any debris around your home or on your roof. Tree branches and limbs, roof shingles, furniture, and outdoor decorations only serve as ammunition if the wind picks back up.

For help identifying wind damage to your home, contact our team at Koalaty Siding Repair. Our trained team can inspect your roof, siding, windows, doors, and decks for signs of damage. We will then form a plan for any necessary repairs or replacements to ensure your home and your family are protected from the next storm.

Fire Damage

There are two main ways that your home can sustain fire damage — either from a wildfire or from a fire hazard within your home. Fire is a unique type of disaster because it can often be prevented, but it will spread quickly and cause devastating amounts of damage once it starts.
Whether caused by a wildfire or a house fire, your home is damaged either way. While there’s only so much you can personally do to prevent wildfires, you can prepare your home for the event of a wildfire to help minimize damage. Visit our Fire Safety page to learn more about how to protect your home from wildfires.

Preventing House Fires

Protecting your home from house fires and protecting your home from wildfires are very different. One danger starts on the exterior of your home, while the other starts in the interior. You can prevent or minimize the damage of house fires by taking certain precautions. Prevent a house fire by:

  • Installing smoke detectors and fire extinguishers
  • Testing smoke detectors and fire extinguishers every six months
  • Cleaning your stove, oven, microwave, and other heated cooking appliances regularly
  • Practicing kitchen and cooking safety
  • Regularly examining electrical cords for fraying
  • Having a professional inspect dryers, fire places, chimney, and other heating sources annually
  • Never leaving lit candles unattended
  • Turning lights or lamps off after a few hours OR switching to lightbulbs that produce less heat like LEDs
  • Using UL-listed appliances that are safe and properly manufactured
  • Using surge protectors and avoiding overloading power strips and outlets with too many electrical cords

As a rule of thumb, practice safety around any items that produce heat or flame in your home. These are the usual suspects in house fires. For more tips on preventing fires, visit our Fire Safety page.

Repairing Fire Damage

After a fire, it’s important to assess the damage to your home. You may need siding repairs, roof repairs, or an entirely new roof installation — it all depends on the extent of damage. Another thing to consider is repairing the water damage. This might not sound logical at first — after all, your home was damaged by a fire. However, water and chemicals are needed to put the fire out, which means that your home can sustain moisture damage on top of fire and smoke damage. Koalaty Siding Repair can inspect your home for both fire and water damage to help you determine the best course of action for replacement windows, roof repairs, and more.

After the inspection, you can decide to either demolish what’s left and rebuild, or you can keep what’s still standing and make repairs. Often, homeowners find that it’s more cost-effective to demolish and rebuild certain parts of their home rather than try to mitigate and repair damage. However, the decision is dependent upon the amount of damage and your preference.

If you decide to restore the damage, you’ll first need to hire a fire mitigation team to address water damage, soot, and smoke damage. This includes drying soaked materials, deodorizing belongings, smoke removal, and HVAC system cleaning. After that, our team of siding and roofing contractors will get to work on your new siding installation, roof replacement, and whatever else is needed.

If you choose to demolish the damage and start from scratch, we can get to work once the demo team has finished and removed debris. At Koalaty Siding Repair, we understand how devastating a fire can be to your home and your family. While we can’t replace your belongings or your memories, we can rebuild so that your home feels safe and comfortable to help you heal and make new memories. If your home has sustained fire damage, contact our team today.

Water Damage

We use water for most tasks around the house. We cook with it, clean with it, and even use it to make our homes more comfortable and inviting (looking at you, humidifiers and porch misters). With so many ways we use water, there are countless ways to cause water damage within our home — and that doesn’t even include inclement weather! Learn more about how to protect the interior and exterior of your home from water damage, and contact Koalaty Siding Repair if you need an inspection, emergency roof repairs, or other types of exterior repairs to your home.

If you suspect your home has sustained water damage but aren’t sure what the source is, start by inspecting the exterior of your home. From the foundation of your home to the roof, there are ways you can eliminate the opportunity for moisture to seep into your home and cause damage.

Foundation-icon

Check your foundation and ensure that the ground slopes away from your home. If it doesn’t, water can sit and start to seep into the foundation of your home.

Gutter icon

Examine your gutters and downspouts around your home for cracks, leaks, or clogs. When water can’t be diverted away from your home through your gutter system, it can cause damage to the exterior of your home, creating the need for roof repairs and siding repairs.

siding icon

As you walk around your home examining your gutters and downspouts, check out your siding for signs of damage. Missing or damaged sections can leave your home vulnerable to moisture damage, so schedule siding repair right away if you notice this.

roofing icon

Inspect your roof. This can be dangerous, so we recommend hiring a professional roofing contractor to complete. They’ll check for cracked, dented, or missing shingles. They’ll also inspect flashing for any dents or broken pieces. Your roof is one of your best defenses against the elements and moisture damage, so scheduling regular roof inspections and roof repairs can prevent serious, costly damage down the road.

doors icon

Check your windowsills and doorframes. If there’s any separation or soft spots, this is an indication of a water leak or potential for one. Replacement windows and doors are often a good way to prevent moisture damage and mold growth within your home.

Signs of Water Damage Within the Home

Signs of damage aren’t always obvious from the exterior of the home, especially if it’s something easy to overlook such as dented shingles or loosened roof fasteners. If you haven’t identified any signs of water damage from the exterior of your home, inspect the inside for:

  • Water stains on your ceiling or down your walls
  • Soft or sagging spots on your wall or on floors, especially around fixtures or appliances that use water
  • Discolored or sagging cabinets
  • Rust on your water heater
  • The smell of mold, mildew, or musty areas (such as the attic)

Depending on the type of damage you discover, you may need different contractors to help remediate and repair water damage. If the exterior of your home has sustained water damage, our team at Koalaty Siding Repair can help. Contact us today to schedule an appointment for roof repairs, siding repairs, replacement windows, or a roof replacement needed from water damage.
