Wind Damage Tips

12/17/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Gaylord & Cheboygan hopes that you are all safe and sound with the high winds we have been experiencing in Northern Michigan. We wanted to take a moment to provide some tips for any wind storm damages. 


  • Vacate the premises in the event of major roof damage – Safety should be your primary concern!
  • Avoid electrical hazards. Stay away from electrical lines that may have fallen.
  • Initial roof assessment should be done from the ground as damage is not always visible.
  • Contact the utility company to ensure lines are de-energized.
  • If you suspect damage to your shingles or structure, contact SERVPRO immediately.


  • Don’t enter rooms where overhead damage may be a safety hazard.
  • Don’t attempt to install a tarp during a storm.
  • Don’t climb on roof. Roof may have unseen structural damage.
  • Don’t walk on tarped surfaces.
  • Don’t climb on roofs that may be wet or icy.
  • Do not use a metal ladder near power lines or in close proximity to energized electrical equipment.
  • Don’t attempt to remove debris from roof.
