Heavy Winds Cause Damage to Chicago Area

Strong winds with gusts up to 60 miles per hour caused a great deal of damage in the Chicagoland area this past weekend. Homes and businesses alike were damaged by these punishing winds. In the downtown area, buildings were evacuated, power lines were downed, and many window were broken by gale force winds. Some of the damages in the downtown area and neighboring suburbs were reported on by ABC 7 Eyewitness News.

These heavy winds may have caused damage to your home, particularly to your roof. While some damage is easily detected by eye from the ground, it is possible that other damage will require a professional  in order to be apparent. If your roof has been damaged and you do nothing about it now, you may experience leaks and other problems, particularly as we move into Spring. If you wait too long, it may be difficult or impossible to get compensation from your insurance company.

If you suspect that your home may have been damaged by the wind, call the experts at Baltic Home Improvements.
