Now that you have survived the storm it's time to see if your property sustained storm damage. As it’s always important to file claims with your property insurers, many homeowners are too overwhelmed with the stress and hardships of beginning the storm damage restoration process.
Same Day Pros has compiled some easy steps to guide you through the process.
Call your insurance agent or company’s toll-free claim filing telephone number immediately to report property.
Make minor repairs to damaged property to prevent further damage or looting. Save receipts and present to the insurance adjuster.
Do not make major repairs until an adjuster has the opportunity to inspect the property.
Take Pictures Or Videos
Photographs or video documentation of damaged property is recommended.
Do not dispose of damaged personal property until an insurance adjuster has completed their audit.
If flooding has occurred, turn off all power to the affected areas and unplug all electronics and appliances. Only if it's safe to do so. Try and move damaged household items to a dry area of the home or business.
Making Your Property
If damage is extensive, be certain your property is identified with your address. Place a plywood sign with your address and the name of your insurance company in front of the property. If you’re unable to stay at the site, leave a number where you can be reached.
Select a reliable contractor to complete repairs on your property, once a final settlement has been made by your insurance company. Ask the insurance adjuster for a list of reliable insurance company approved contractors.
