Storm damage restoration can be a convoluted process. The complexity of the project depends on numerous factors like the structural state of your property. No matter how chaotic it may be, there is order in it.
Here’s an overview of how the usual storm damage restoration process works.
It begins with a thorough assessment of your property. You may have to do a cursory inspection of it inside and out just to spot signs of damage. But if the problems are apparent, there is no need to risk your safety because broken panes and sagging roofing sections should be enough evidence.
A storm damage restoration company might send a team of experts who will meticulously assess the integrity of different areas of your property. In this part of the process, you will learn whether you need to replace your entire roof, windows, siding and more.
Storm damage can’t be undone, but it should not worsen on your watch. Seek tarping and boarding-up services to temporarily secure your property and keep the elements at bay. This way, you can somewhat create a safe environment for you, your family and your valuables.
Claims Adjuster Meeting
Do not forget to notify your insurance company about your situation to start the claim process. Your insurer will send a claims adjuster to determine who is financially responsible for the loss, verify the truth of your story, draft a damage report and negotiate a settlement.
It is imperative that you know whether or not your patio and entry doors, roofing components, gutters and others are covered by your insurance policy beforehand. Otherwise, your claim may be rejected and cause some delay for storm damage restoration.
