What to do if your home is damaged in a storm

Every year, thousands of homes are damaged by severe weather. Despite knowing those statistics, most of us are overwhelmed when disaster strikes our own homes or businesses. Storms can cause more damage than people realize. Not only can it cause damage to your home, but it cause stress and heartache for you and your family. 

Stress over finances and the complications of life when your home and livelihood are threatened can be all-consuming. When your home is damaged by a hurricane, hail, flooding, extreme wind, or other storm damage, you want experts on call to help you get back to normal as quickly as possible. 

How should you respond immediately after severe storm damage? Follow this list to help get your property restored as quickly as possible.

Steps to Take After Storm Damage

01 Be safe.

Depending on the type of damage you see, there will be different hazards to consider. Take precautions to avoid further damage or injury.

  • Flooding is often accompanied by other dangers. Avoid standing water as it can conduct electricity from downed electrical lines or could be concealing wildlife.
  • Wind damage can cause everything from broken glass to downed electrical lines and tree limbs. Be conscious of your surroundings.
  • Many disasters have the potential to rupture gas lines. If you smell gas, vacate the area and absolutely avoid using any open flames. In any disaster, a flashlight is preferable to a candle or torch simply due to the danger of broken gas lines.
02 Contact professionals.

After a storm, reaching out to a restoration company means help is on the way as quickly as possible.

  • Call us at your earliest opportunity to book a free assessment of the damage and required repairs. We will be there within 24 hours after a major storm to help.
03 Take photos of the damage for insurance claims.
  • Although you may be tempted to start cleaning up immediately, remember to take photos for insurance purposes. Your agent will need these images to be taken before repairs begin.
04 Compile insurance information. 

Contact our professionals so we can promptly help you get the assistance you need.

  • Be sure to keep receipts for hotel stays and other expenses incurred because of the damage.
  • Your agent will provide you with a claim number, which you will need to save for your records. Once you have that information, we will deal with your insurance company while we do the repairs.
