Emergency Storm Clean Up and Recovery in Portland

Regardless of the type or amount of damage, Great Western Restoration will be there to restore your property so you can get your life back to normal quickly. Common examples of storm and wind damage resulting from severe weather include:

Storm and Wind Damage Prevention Tips

Although Great Western Restoration is in the storm and wind damage restoration business, we would prefer if you never had to call us. While storm damage is not entirely unavoidable, there are a few things you can do to prevent some of the most common damages that result from heavy rains and strong winds.

  • Keep trees properly trimmed to prevent heavy branches from breaking off and falling through your home or business during a storm
  • Keep your gutters clear and make sure the downspout is pointed away from your property’s foundation
  • Be on the lookout for signs of roof damage that can be exacerbated by heavy rains and strong winds, such as loose shingles and damaged flashing
  • Make sure the grading around your property slopes down and away to prevent rain water from pooling and flooding your home or business
  • Bring loose outdoor items inside and anchor down heavier items before an anticipated wind storm to prevent them from becoming projectiles during a wind storm
