Wind . Hail . Storm

The damage from a storm can be just as devastating as a fire or flood. During a severe thunder or wind storm your home may be damaged by debris flying through the air or trees landing on a structure. Trying to clean it up alone can be exhausting. The initial damage assessment should begin as soon as possible after the storm damage occurs.

Our team is available for emergency response 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With one call to our office, we will dispatch a professional, experienced team to your location to determine exactly what is required to address response, mitigation and recovery activities. We will first analyze the facility for structural integrity, safety and functional capability. The actions we take may include site stabilization and board up, temporary power installations and debris removal, if required. Northern Capital Renovations’ team of trained restoration specialists and journeymen have the ability to rectify any situation caused by hail. Be sure to check with your insurance company, as coverage may vary and can change depending upon the source of the damage.

Tree Impact

When a tree impact occurs, Northern Capital Restorations will respond and assist in the same prompt and professional manner as in any other structural emergency. It is important to note that insurance coverage will normally provide for tree removal off your home or building but not necessarily off your property.

Solutions to Ice Damming

As autumn approaches, leaves and temperatures are dropping. To the delight of skiers everywhere, snow will soon be accumulating. Snow on your driveway is seldom more than a pain in the back. Snow on your roof can lead to leakage, even if your roof is new. The culprit is ice damming, the insidious snow-melting phenomenon that is all too familiar to many of us.

Let’s do a quick review of ice damming and its causes. Snow accumulates on the roof. In areas where the snow is covering the transition between interior and exterior spaces, ice dams may form. If there is sufficient heat loss from the heated space to melt the first few inches of snow on the shingles, water will form. The water will run down the roof until it encounters the un-melted snow over the unheated space. There it stops, and refreezes. After a while, a dam of ice forms on the roof above the exterior wall. The dam can cause the water to form a small pool. Shingle type roofs cannot stop pooling water. Water may back up under the edges of the shingles. Once under the shingles, the water if free to leak into the ceiling and wall.
