Take a Proactive Approach to Weathering the Storm
Whether manifested in the form of a tornado or a hurricane, storms can wreak havoc in people’s lives. These calamities can uproot entire businesses and lead to both physical and emotional turmoil for those impacted. The damage these storms leave behind can also result in skyrocketing restoration and renovation costs for property owners.
Based on data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), storms cost the US $91 billion in 2018. This figure, already staggering, is only expected to increase as the frequency, intensity, and the duration of hurricanes, along with the frequency of the strongest types (Category 4 and 5) hurricanes, have increased since the early 1980s.
When it comes to protecting their property from storm-related damage, property owners need to take a proactive approach, like getting a windstorm inspection completed by a trained specialist. A Windstorm inspection is the review and evaluation of building components and cladding to ensure they are resistant to storm damage. This inspection plays a crucial role in minimizing the threat to your property in the event of a storm by having certified inspectors investigate your building and equip it with storm-resistant materials.
At Z6 Consulting, windstorm inspection is conducted by experienced professionals who can identify what every client’s property requires to withstand strong, intense winds and rain in the face of a storm.
