Storm Recovery in the Texas Hill Country – Tips for Protecting Your Home and Family

We’ve witnessed a profound number of weather-related accidents in the Texas Hill Country in the past few years. Homeowners are suffering through storm damage of all manner – flooding, wind damage, and more, and it’s all just too much for most to handle on their own. Thankfully, homeowners in the area should know they are not alone. They have a local restoration company backing up their every move — it takes just one phone call.

For 24-hour storm recovery services in the Canyon Lake and the surrounding area, homeowners can trust in Restoration 1 of Texas Hill Country. For now, let’s explore how to protect your home and family from storm damage.

Prepare a Storm Readiness Kit

The first step in preparing both your home and your family — and protecting both — before, during, and after a storm is by arranging a storm readiness kit. Such a kit will include all of the items one could need to survive through a serious weather emergency. Yours should include:

*Basic Kit – A basic storm readiness kit should include enough non-perishable food and water for up to three days without electricity. Your kit may also include a working flashlight, batteries, and a first aid kit.

*Upgraded Kit – An upgraded readiness kit should allow you to be even more comfortable during your ordeal. You should consider adding in blankets, sleeping bags, and enough supplies for more than three days.

*Expanded Kit – An expanded storm readiness kit is ideal for those living in a remote area, with an elderly charge or a disabled child to care for, and for those who want to remain safe and secure in their homes for longer.

Storm Recovery Tips in the Texas Hill Country

As for protecting both your home and family, we’ve acquired a few useful tips over the years.

*If the shingles of your roof are missing or damaged, the whole roof is at risk of breaking free. The missing shingles provide a gap that allows wind to reach under and cause more damage. Replace or repair the roof immediately.

*Repair any loose siding, as the same rules that apply to your roof apply here.

Ensure your gutters are free and clear of any buildup from dirt or leaves. The gutters are the first line of defense against excess water caused by rainfall.

*Consider replacing stone or gravel landscaping with shredded bark, which is less harmful to your home in the event of strong winds.

This is my 2nd experience with Restoration1 (lucky to have had 2 leaks in 7 years) 1st one was excellent 2nd one was also excellent. RJ was the 1st responder he assessed situation, mitigated and began Resteration. Next day RJ and Max arrived continued on the issue, patiently answered my questions, etc. After that Restoration1 arrived daily & continued to monitor. Max and RJ were great as were the other members of the crew and office.

Daniel came out to our house quickly to assess the water damage within our walls. He was courtesy’s and prompt. He thoroughly explained the next steps needed to keep any microbial growth from happened and we immediately set up an appointment to have equipment put in place to to dry up the moisture. The next day, Mark and RJ arrived on time and quickly got to work. They worked cleanly and quickly. The next 5 days, they came to assess the progress always on time. On the final day, Mark and RJ arrived on time and quickly and thoroughly cleaned up and removed all equipment.In the future, should we have any issues, we will be know who to call!

No one wants to have to have an emergency restoration service have to come to your home. But when it is needed, you are fortunate if you have a service such as Restoration 1. Andrew and RJ were so professional and respectful of our home and did a fantastic job. They arrived on time- did their work- and left the area cleaner than I expected. I cannot recommend this company more!!

RJ, Wes, and Andrew did an amazing job to remove the cabinets when we had a water leak in our kitchen. They were extremely courteous, thoughtful, and quick! In addition, Daniel and Michael from the service side tried their best to work with our insurance company, scheduling crews to come out and making sure things were taken care of. All and all, a great crew of people to work with for what was a very stressful situation for our family.
