Santa Ana Winds Cause Damage to Homes in San Diego?

11/21/2022 (Permalink)

Palm trees are blown over in strong winds. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in San Diego County.

Our San Diego City, South West team, responded to property damage emergencies last month when powerful Santa Ana Winds blew through Southern California. The Santa Ana winds are the most common in the fall when they bring hot, dry weather and strong downslope winds from inland to the coastal regions of Southern California. Although they are more common in the fall, they can occur at any time of the year.

In 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021, these winds forced big rigs to overturn on major freeways and caused significant wind damage. Because the winds are so hot and dry, they also have fanned the flames of wildfires.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) suggests securing objects like furniture, gutters, and downspouts to prevent wind damage. Additionally:

  • Make sure that your dog’s house, garbage cans, and sports equipment are stored away or tied down
  • Seal cracks and gaps to prevent the wind from coming in
  • Trim trees and branches regularly. Your home should be at least a full-grown tree’s height away from the base of any tree, usually about 40 feet away.

Call Us Today!

When your San Diego home or commercial business has wind damage, our San Diego City, South West team is Here to Help ® We’ll restore your storm damage “Like it never even happened.” Call us today at 619-269-5004.

Visible Signs of Storm Damage in Logan Heights Neighborhood?

10/17/2022 (Permalink)

A roof gutter system is clogged with leaves and debris after a storm. We restore storm damage 24-hours a day in San Diego.

Our San Diego City, South West team responds to storm damage emergencies throughout the year in Logan Heights. Last month, Tropical Storm Kay was downgraded from a hurricane and blew up the Baja Peninsula, bringing fierce winds, heavy rain, and mudslides to Southern California. Now that the storm has gone,  inspecting your home’s roof for visible signs of storm damage is a good idea.

Visible Signs of Storm Damage From the Ground

  1. Collection of shingle granules – If you see an abundance of asphalt granules in your yard and landscaping, your roof has storm damage.
  2. Clogged Gutters – Leaking and clogged gutters often indicate roof storm damage. Unrepaired damage can cause your roof to leak and may cause foundation damage if the water is not draining away from the structure.
  3. Property damage – If your vehicles and property show signs of damage, your roof may have storm damage, too.
  4. Broken, cracked, and missing shingles – Check for missing and damaged shingles, including curled, cracked, or torn shingles. Wood shingles can show signs of splitting, curling, or decay, and low-slope roofs can have cracks, tears, wrinkles, and blisters
