Painting the outside of your North Carolina home is a huge undertaking. However, once you complete the job, you may find a sense of accomplishment and relief. Your freshly painted home is exactly what you pictured for so long. But what if that image was ruined due to vandalism? This is a possibility, and if such an event occurs, it is important to contact the proper authorities and make a claim on your insurance as soon as possible.


Although it may be hard to believe vandalism could happen in your neighborhood, it is better to be safe than sorry. Recently, a number of homes in Raleigh were damaged due to graffiti. All of the crimes took place at night as homeowners were sleeping, thinking there was nothing wrong. But when they woke up in the morning, it was a different story. Raleigh detectives investigated 20 to 30 cases, in which they felt were gang related. The most common tagged areas included fences, signs, mailboxes, posts, and the exterior of houses. Power washers were used by city crews to try to remove the graffiti that could be seen from the street.
