As all Texas residents are aware, hurricanes and tornadoes can cause severe destruction to home and building structures. Heavy storms are strong enough to rip trees from their roots as well as blow around debris to damage your roof, property structure, vehicle, and the property’s exterior. When finding it in this condition, the risk for additional damage from other sources such as nuisance animals and vandalism is heightened.
Water damage can also spread throughout the property, threatening mold growth in all affected areas. This is why it’s crucial to call for emergency services, such as Target Restoration. We are available 24/7 in Waco and the surrounding areas of central Texas to provide complete hurricane and tornado damage restoration services for homes and buildings.

Tornadoes occur throughout the year in Texas, but they are most common in late spring and early summer. With these storms comes strong winds enough to rip homes and buildings to shreds, pick up vehicles, and pull trees and power lines from their roots. After the tornado, properties are left in shambles, with debris littering the streets and yards, including glass, tree branches, and fallen power lines. Even walking outside is dangerous if any power lines are still active.
Hurricane Harvey was a primary example of the type of damage these storms can put on Texas’ homes and buildings. In addition to strong winds that rip off roofing and siding, floodwaters running several feet deep take over neighborhoods and leave all building materials and contents in ruins. These floodwaters can also be dangerous as they contain a number of bacteria and toxins from sewage plants and debris, that can quickly cause injuries and infections.
Target Restoration is always prepared to help homes and businesses recover from extreme flooding through repairing building structures and extracting floodwaters from the properties.
