Weathering the Storm – restoration relief.

Cobb County, Atlanta, with its tall, beautiful trees, is a known for its landscapes. However, natural beauty can come with unexpected challenges.

In February of 2024, winter wind and rainstorms caused severe damage to this house when a fallen tree literally broke the house down the center. The weight of the wide trunk and its broad branches also damaged the structural integrity of the house. Deep roots pulled upwards and out from the water-saturated soil, cracking the home's concrete foundation. 

Fortunately, no power lines were involved, but the homeowner was clear of mind, with their top priority to turn off the main breaker and gas line at the meter to prevent fire. 

The tree law in the state of Georgia is that the ownership of a tree is determined by the property on which the tree is rooted, if the tree trunk stands entirely on one property, the tree is entirely that person's responsibility. Property Surveyors are often consulted regarding any questions about ownership. 

Be sure to inspect trees on your property regularly, especially if they grow near any structures. Trees can tolerate a lot of internal damage before they are so very weak that they lose a limb or fall entirely. Professional arborists provide a much-valued assessment of the health of our trees or the Earth's Lungs resident on your home's property. 

After contacting your insurance company, find a reputable general contractor with experience and expertise in storm damage restoration. Their professionalism should provide a sense of relief knowing you are in capable hands. 

At Georgia In Home Services, we coordinate with insurance adjusters, and oversee every aspect of the rebuilding process with expertise and experience.

She expanded saying, "Riaan kept me informed every step of the way, providing regular updates on progress and addressing any concerns promptly. What could have been a daunting ordeal became a collaborative effort." 

The path to recovery may seem daunting, but with the support of Georgia In Home Services, rebuilding becomes a journey of renewal, to rebuild your home better than it was before.
