Home material demand surge driven by severe storms
Damaging weather, including hail, wind, and hurricanes, drives demand for materials to repair damaged roofs, windows, siding, and more. Manufacturers, distributors, and contractors need to assess where severe storms affect cities, towns, and neighborhoods quickly. You must respond to each demand surge by getting the right materials to the right locations in the shortest amount of time. For example:
- Hail: Verisk applies hail detection algorithms and our nationwide footprint of homes to our assessments, all conditioned by our unique understanding of how various sizes or types of hail can cause damage. We quantify the damage and resulting storm demand surge down to the local level to facilitate decisive and timely responses.
- Hurricane: Respond forecasts damage estimates up to five days before landfall. The predictive analytics are updated multiple times a day as the tropical cyclone approaches land.
The images below illustrate some of the detailed information Respond provides to address storm-related surge. Together, our industry alliances improve community resilience to severe weather by fueling faster and more efficient recoveries.
