Hail damage is one of the most visual damages you can notice. If you have ever had a car damaged with hail, you will understand. Imagine a ton of golf balls pelting onto your roof or against the paint/vinyl/aluminum surface. Not only is it plainly noticeable, you can really see and feel the damage it produces by the force of it coming down. With over 20 years of rebuilding and restoring homes and commercial properties, this is where our experienced and trained roofing inspectors shine. At the end of all completed jobs, our goal is to make the damage disappear and leave our clients wondering where the original damage used to be.
The howling and hissing of winds can be a scary noise, especially when you find the damage it did once the storm subsides. Ripping off shingles and siding is not uncommon with wind damage. Purves Construction has dealt with amplified wind damage scenarios, such as old trees crushing barns, commercial buildings, garages, and homes along with all of their windows. It is devastating to see what can happen from wind, but whatever occurs Purves Construction will be ready 24/7 to assist and repair everything.
Typically, Michigan encounters an ice storm once or twice a year creating ice dams on roofs or downed trees and limbs. Ice is a double threat as it is heavy in its solid form and can create even more damage as it melts. This is one restoration service that needs to be handled properly so it does not occur again. Purves Construction has the know-how needed to return your home, inside and out, back to its previous state of condition.
Flood damage is another form of Storm Damage that can occur. If you would like to see more on this service area, please check out Flood Damage.
Although trees are generally a desirable feature of home or commercial business landscaping, they can pose a threat to buildings in a number of different ways during a severe storm.

Purves Construction is there to help ease your stress by providing 24/7 emergency service. If your tree falls, know that we can handle everything. It starts with temporary repairs, including putting a tarp on the roof, shoring up any parts of the house that have structural damage, and cleaning up potential water inside.
