What to Expect After a Storm
Harm caused by severe weather can be devastating to your home or business, and fixing it can be complicated. To get repairs done safely and effectively, you need a storm damage repair service that specializes in bringing your building back to its original condition. We are the experts you need.
Once the disaster has passed, it’s necessary to check out the damage and start cleaning up. Below, learn about the damage different storms can cause and how to keep your property, and yourself, safe in different circumstances.
Storm Damage Insurance
The amount you get from insurance depends on policy specifics, the severity of harm to your property, the previous condition of the property and more.
Most storms are considered acts of God, which means that your insurer can’t single you out for rate increases. But waiting too long to file can harm your chances of a fair payout, and your whole neighborhood can see rate increases following disasters. That means you should always file claims as quickly as possible.
Storm Damage Scenarios
- Winter Storms: Blizzards can cause collapsed roofs, lead to broken trees and electricity poles, and cause other harm.
- Hail Aftermath: Severe hail can damage siding and shingles, and that can mean roof leaks and compounding structural damage.
- Damage from Flooding: Floods can get into your building’s foundation, ruin drywall, carpet and framing, lead to mold problems and cause other problems.
- Wind Damage: This can damage structures, destroy glass, wreak havoc on trees and power grids and cause additional damage.
- Tornado and Tropical Storm Damage: Circular wind storms can cause serious damage to all parts of your property, such as catastrophic damage to landscaping, siding and windows.
