What to do After a Severe Weather Storm
From severe hail storms to strong winds, storm damage can strike at any time. It’s important to have a plan in mind when natural forces leave your home damaged and compromised. There are several steps you can take to get your home back to a comfortable and safe condition as soon as possible.
● Ensure Everyone’s Safety
The first thing you should do after a natural disaster is ensure that everyone in your family is safe. Check for injuries and count all present family members and house pets.
● Collect Essential Belongings
Birth certificates, social security cards, and other important documents should all be accounted for after a natural disaster. Collect those critical items and secure them in a safe or another protected area.
● Document the Damage
After you’ve tracked down all of your critical belongings, take time to note all damaged areas in and around your home. Take photos and write down descriptions of the damage to share with your insurance company.
● Call a Trusted Contractor
You’ll need a contracting company you can count on to help you assess the damage and pick up the pieces. Schedule an inspection with the contracting company to maximize your understanding of your home’s damage. You should try to find a company that will work with your insurance to help you get the most out of your restoration service.
● Complete a Strom Date Report
Storm date reports can help you pinpoint the exact date and severity of the storm that impacted your home. By uncovering these details, you’ll be able to simplify and enhance your insurance claim process.
● Schedule a Professional Damage Repair Service
Finally, you’ll need to schedule a repair service with a professional contracting company. High winds and hail can leave your roof and siding vulnerable to additional deterioration. As soon as you’ve documented the damage, get in touch with a trusted contractor for all of your storm damage repair needs.
