Hurricane Florence and Michael have come and gone. While most Raleigh homeowners were not severely affected, there are homeowners who have damages.
Our team at Raleigh Cary Realty wants to help support homeowners who have storm damage. We know that it is much easier to clean up storm damage now than to wait and deal with home improvements down the road.
3 of the most common hurricane damages for Raleigh homeowners and the best way to fix them are:
- Flooding: There are a handful of watersheds across the Triangle and these homeowners were recommended to leave their homes during the storm. If there was flood damage, it is a wise decision to contact your homeowner’s insurance first. The home will most likely need to be inspected for mold and then have the repairs done to the drywall.
- Roof Shingles: There was some serious wind during Hurricane Florence even in Raleigh. So, a few homes will need shingles replaced or potentially, a whole new roof. Choose a local roofer to come inspect the home, but make sure to read the roofer’s review as well as double check their certification.
- Landscaping: Depending on the amount of wind, it could have damaged the landscaping such as a down tree or stone plant bed liners being displaced. Some small damage can be fixed as a family, but if it seems like a little too much, call a local landscaper.
