Windows – Storm Damage/Repair
During a storm, your windows are one of the most at-risk areas of your home. While high-quality windows can last upwards of 20 years or more, intense storms with strong winds that throw around debris can lead to broken glass and window damage - even on the sash and frame of the window. In areas prone to hurricanes or tornadoes, it’s not uncommon to see homeowners boarding up their windows for an added layer of protection. Since Minnesota is part of tornado alley in the United States, and tornados aren’t uncommon for cities like St. Paul, Maple Grove, Bloomington, and Minneapolis, and other Twin Cities areas, sometimes it’s necessary to take these added precautions.
Hail storms are also a very common storm element in Minnesota, particularly in the summer months. Unfortunately, storms can hit suddenly, and we might not have the time to protect our home. That’s why window storm damage repairs are so important.
After a big storm, it’s important to take the time and inspect all of your windows for damage. Even if they haven’t shattered, small signs of damages can quickly create big problems. Even the smallest chip in window glass causes the window to be susceptible to serious damage or further cracking. Many homeowners see his in the form of spider web cracks that emanate from even the tiniest sign of a problem. At Bison Builders, our window storm damage and repair services will help you avoid unnecessary problems and costly replacements.
To prevent your windows from incurring serious damage, always try to take proactive measures and secure your home. Make sure that all of your windows are in good condition and be sure to get anything repaired or replaced that’s not. The better condition your windows are in, the less likely they are to get seriously damaged during a storm. Bison Builders can help you with both prevention and repairs before and after a storm. After a storm, spend some time walking around your home, both inside and outside, and checking the glass, the screens, frames, and the sash for damages. If you see anything wrong, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Bison Builders. By taking care of the problem immediately, you’ll save time, money, and stress.
