Dealing with home damage after a severe storm can be overwhelming. You may be wondering how you should proceed, and with a million questions running through your head, it’s understandable if you want to call your insurance agent right away. However, there are a few things you should know before doing so. These include the following:
1. Determine the extent of the storm damage. Before contacting your insurance agent, you should first determine the degree of your home’s storm damage. Once the weather clears, inspect your roof from the ground and take note of obvious signs of damage such as gaps between shingles, curled or bent flashing strips, and even missing roofing components. Check your siding, windows and the other exterior parts of your home as well.
2. Contact a reputable roofer. A visual inspection of your own isn’t enough, however. For a full damage inspection, you need to hire a reliable contractor who provides roofing, gutter and siding services. They will provide a report of the damage, as well as the estimated cost of repairs. A contractor will also work with you in preparing a storm damage claim by supplying it with the necessary documentation and discussing the matter with your insurance provider, who will also perform an inspection.
3. Never skimp on repair work. After getting your claim approved, your insurer will pay for the repair costs after deductibles. Choose the best roof that your insurer will cover. With this, you and your family can rest easy knowing that your roof will protect you the next time a storm passes through your area.
