When your property suffers storm damage, it’s not only disheartening, but can also be stressful. You want your home safe but you also want your insurance company to cover the storm damage. Before you do anything, look at your home and make sure it is still safe to remain in. If not, get out and take photos. Your family’s safety is a priority.
Step 1 – Call Your Homeowners Insurance Provider
As soon as you even suspect you have storm damage, make the call. Chances are that if you have damage, so do many others in your area. The sooner you make the call, the higher up you are on the adjustor’s schedule. Write down the claim number, person you spoke with and anything else they tell you. Following their rules is essential.
Step 2 – Call Your Roofing Company
Again, the sooner you call, the sooner you will have an appointment. Good roofing companies get overwhelmed in the aftermath of a storm so the sooner you call, the sooner they can attend to your roof damage. Be sure to let them know that you have a storm damage insurance claim and find out if they work with your insurance company. Also tell them if you have an opening in your roof, they may prioritize you if you do.
Step 3 – Contain the Storm Damage
If you noticed your storm damage because of a roof leak, do what you can inside your home to prevent further damage. If you can get into your attic and place a bucket to catch the rainwater, that will help keep it out of your home where you may need drywall repair or other work done.
