 Here are some of the most common causes of storm damage on your home: 

Siding: Most damage from storms occurs from wind and waterborne debris blowing against your home. If your siding is in bad condition, these elements can tear it off in large pieces or pull it off in small strips

Wooden Roofing: Even a well-maintained roof can suffer during a storm if heavy rains or winds cause water to accumulate on the roofing material. This water can then cause rot and decay, which will eventually lead to failure. 

Windows: Windows are one of the most important parts of your home when it comes to weatherproofing. But if they’re not properly sealed and protected, they can easily get blown off their hinges in strong winds or rain. This can leave your home vulnerable to wind and water damage inside and out.
