  • What to Do When a Storm Damages Your Home

    Seasonal storms can blow in remarkably fast and leave destruction in their wake. If your home is left in shambles after a major storm, then there’s a good chance that you’re feeling both stressed and anxious. However, it’s important to stay calm and keep your head as level as possible. Immediately following a storm, you need to focus on rebuilding both your life and your damaged home. These four tips can help keep you on track and back to where you need to be in no time.

    Put Safety First

    The days following a storm can be chaotic and challenging times. You may be in shock with uncertainty how to proceed. While it’s perfectly understandable to feel overwhelmed, you need to stay safe. There may be dangerous debris (such as broken glass or downed power lines) that could hurt you or your family. Act prudently to help avoid any serious harm coming to yourself and your loved ones.

    Assess the Damage

    Of course, once the storms die down, you do need to venture out to look at the damage. You’ll want to carefully document everything that you see during your inspection, even if it seems trivial. It’s also a good idea to take pictures of everything, as well. These can help provide proof of the damages if needed later.

    Notify Your Insurance Company

    Do not delay contacting your insurance company. There’s a good chance they will promptly send out an adjuster to assess damages. The claims adjuster will evaluate the extent of the damage. This will ensure everything is documented, and you’re on a straight path to restoration.

    Find a Trustworthy Contractor

    There will be many contractors looking to exploit homeowners after a storm. Many of these contractors will try to catch you when you’re vulnerable, and they may not be licensed or bonded.
