Storms Bring Destructive Winds, Hail and Water Damage Throughout Areas of Flagler County
PALM COAST, Fla. — Venture Construction Group of Florida (VCGFL), an accredited local leader in storm damage repairs and restoration, provides free property and roof inspections to property owners throughout Flagler County. A hailstorm on April 18 brought destructive 60 mph wind gusts and quarter to half-dollar sized hail that left numerous homes, businesses, and commercial properties with severe damage. VCGFL specializes in residential and commercial construction, restoration, storm damage repairs and 24/7 emergency services.
“Our crews are seeing extensive roof and exterior damage from cracking, denting, and bruising due to the strong winds and hail. If left undetected, it can not only lead to future damage and leaks, it can also void the manufacturer’s warranty. It’s important for property owners to get an expert assessment from a licensed general contractor so they know if they have damage and they can get it fixed,” said Stephen Shanton, CEO and president of Venture Construction Group of Florida (VCGFL).
According to the NOAA, it only takes wind speeds of 58 mph or hail the size of a quarter to cause severe property damage.
Shanton states that many property owners are unaware of what steps to take to determine if they have damage or wait until they have a visible leak to contact a contractor. VCGFL’s team of HAAG residential and commercial certified inspectors are working throughout the area and are trained to assess hail and wind damage and stop it in its tracks.
“Our experts know how hail and wind interact with roofing systems, siding, gutters and exteriors. We understand the manufacture, installation techniques, weathering, maintenance, mechanical damage, and repair costs for each major roofing type — whether that be composition, shingle, concrete or clay tile, fiber cement, synthetic, slate, or metal roofing. You name it, we specialize in it,” says Shanton.
