How a Metal Fabricator Can Help You Repair Storm Damage

Storm damage is an unfortunate byproduct of harsh weather conditions. From thunderstorms to tornadoes, homeowners and businesses face wind and hail damage that can be both devastating and time-consuming. Where do you even begin? There’s so much to do and think about that it’s difficult to know where to turn first.

When damage strikes, and you’re looking for a trusted professional, contact your local metal fabrication service. We make it easy for you to rebuild what’s lost, and we can even help you make those improvements you’ve been thinking about. Here are a few ways that we can help.

3 Areas of Storm Damage a Metal Fabricator Can Help With

1. Sheet Metal for Roofing

Residential and commercial roofs can sustain significant amounts of damage during a severe storm. Pieces of sheet metal, or the sheet as a whole, can be bent or torn under high winds and can be dented by severe hail. Your local metal fabrication company can produce the sheet metal needed to replace what you’ve lost. In addition to sheet metal, your roof may have sustained flashing or gutter damage in the process—both of which a fabricator can easily design and build for you to complete your repairs. 

2. Custom Decorative Pieces

Did a one-of-a-kind not make it through the storm? Don’t worry; you may not be able to find another like it, but a fabricator can create the piece for you. For those unique decorate pieces, such as finials and spires, your metal fabrication service can recreate (or even improve upon) your damaged decorations to help you finish your roof with those personality details you love.

3. Business Signage

If your business’ sign was damaged, a fabricator can make pieces to repair your current sign or create a sign that is entirely made of metal. Metal signs are very popular among modern and traditional companies. They add a unique touch to your storefront or office building and withstand various weather conditions well, unlike wood or other materials.

Safety First when Assessing Damage

Above all, stay safe. Wait for severe conditions to completely subside before assessing your property damage. Have a licensed, insured professional inspect potentially hazardous places, such as your roof, so that you do not put yourself at risk. Once you have an understanding of what needs to be repaired or replaced, contact your local metal fabrication service to discuss your design needs and talk through different options for getting your building back to normal—or better. Consider also that this may be an opportunity to make improvements to your building that you’ve had your eye on.

Storm damage is always difficult, no matter how small. But having a go-to metal fabricator on your side can make repairing the damage much easier, faster, and can give you priceless peace of mind. Contact your local fabricator, Formwell Industries, today to talk about your next metalwork project.
