Repairing Home Damage from Summer Storms – Insurance Restoration

Repairing Home Damage from Summer Storms – Insurance Restoration

We all love summertime, but summertime doesn’t always love us. As temperatures rise and winds blow, we’ve got some great conditions for the making of a summer storm! We’ve all seen it happen before – a seemingly innocent thunderstorm knocks a tree onto a house, rainfall causes flooding in the basement, hailstorms damage rooftops, siding, and windows.


When it happens to you, it might feel like you don’t know where to begin. After a call to your insurance company, you have to find someone to come out, assess the storm damage, and offer up a quote for insurance restoration. This is exactly where we come in!


What is insurance restoration?

Insurance restoration is the work that is done on your home after a claim is filed with your insurance company. Not all contractors understand how the storm damage insurance process works, so when you’re shopping around for the best contractor in your area, it’s important that you find one that is a licensed insurance restoration professional.


How do I know if I need insurance restoration?

If a big summer storm has just blown through your neighborhood, it’s possible that your home incurred storm damage that you can’t see. If you’ve noticed debris in your neighborhood or saw that a home close to yours was damaged, you should call a contractor that is licensed to complete home damage inspections right away. The sooner you get started on the insurance restoration process, the sooner you’ll be able to rest knowing that your home is healthy!


How do I choose an insurance restoration professional?

When you file a claim with your insurance company, they will likely try to place you with their preferred contractor. Be advised that you are not required to use who they suggest! Just because they have a contractor at the ready that doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re the best in your area. It’s always a good idea to conduct your own research into the best contractor to repair summer storm damage.
