Repairing Home Or Commercial Buildings After Impact Damage

Published by SEO on August 30, 2021 in category: Uncategorized

Sometimes, fire, water, or any type of structural damage in residential or commercial property is caused by unusual events, such as a falling tree or a car crashing into your store’s window. When such accidents happen, the first thing property owners need to do is call commercial or home restoration services to deal with the impact damage for emergency and full-scale repairs

In this post, we’ll explain in detail how impact damage restoration services in Central Arkansas work so readers know what to expect in the aftermath of an unfortunate event. 

What Is Impact Damage?

Impact damage is property damage that occurs due to external factors, such as natural disasters or a vehicle colliding with a boundary wall, window, gate, or an external wall. Essentially, any structural, fire, or water damage caused by a moving object falls under this category; hence, owners have to secure their properties and hire professionals to take care of repairs. 

If you are a property owner who’s dealing with impact damage, you need to take quick action to take care of cleanup and emergency repairs. Restoration can be an extremely time-consuming process if you delay it as damages can worsen over time easily. 

Let’s check out the main causes of impact damages in Arkansas:

Vehicle Crash

According to statistics, there are close to 20,000 vehicle-into-building accidents reported annually in local convenience stores, homes, offices, restaurants, and other commercial properties around the country. The leading causes of these crashes are DUI, vehicle error, and driver error. In most cases, the driver is liable for the damages, and their auto insurance should cover the property damage up to a specified limit. However, if the damages cost more than the driver’s insurance policy limit, the property owner’s policy might kick in if it includes vehicle damage among covered damages. 

Storm Damage

A violent storm or flood can also cause severe damage to your property’s exterior from hail, wind-blown debris, lightning fire, wildfire, hurricanes, and falling trees. The National Weather Service also reports occasional tornadoes in Central and North-East Arkansas. Storm damage experts assess and document the impact damage and board-up properties to reduce the risk of further damage and elevated repair costs. 

Vandalism

Acts of vandalism are fairly common throughout the country. These acts include arson, water damage, theft, breaking windows, graffiti, etc. Owners need to quickly carry out emergency repairs caused by vandalism to reduce security threats and future potential attacks as well. Vandals can strike anytime, and the aftermath can be extremely frustrating, both financially and emotionally. Restoration professionals take care of everything, from cleanup to repairs, which typically includes disinfecting, graffiti removal, odor removal, and power washing. 

Weight of Ice and Snow

Heavy, wet snow, and ice can cause structural damage to your roof. If the damage worsens over time, owners should proactively call restoration experts to mitigate the risk of greater impact damage in the future by carrying out quick repairs. 

The Impact Damage Restoration Process

Restoration professionals in Central Arkansas arrive at your property to fully assess the damage and create a detailed report with security footage or photos/videos of the damaged site to share with the insurance company. With the property owner’s agreement and claim validation, they commence the restoration process by listing the work and materials needed to return the property to its original condition starting by securing it and maintaining its structural integrity. 

While the process might sound straightforward, this is not always the case, depending on the impact’s severity. In many cases, properties may require emergency repairs before the extensive damage assessments and/or repairs. For example, most restoration services take care of safety and security issues first, especially following acts of vandalism or vehicle crashes. Emergency repairs include:

  • Demolition and removal of impacted structures, such as broken glass, walls, roof system, doors, etc. 
  • Structural repairs, such as a brick wall, hardwood floor, plumbing, masonry, concrete, etc. 
  • Dehumidification
  • Board-up
  • Contents and business property handling
  • Other Repairs, such as gates, fencings, signage, and barriers.
