Severe Weather Damage Scenarios
Severe storms can be furious and frightening, and safety has to be your first priority. If your neighborhood has seen major problems, be careful. If you think your home has been structurally damaged or flooding risk remains, stay out until a professional says it’s safe. Spending a few nights at a friend’s house or in an emergency shelter is a small thing compared to your health.
After the danger has passed, repairs and restoration should be the next priority. Below, learn about how various storm systems can cause unique problems.
Storm Damage Insurance
Serious damage from almost all storms is covered by property insurance, but the specifics are different. Your financial responsibility depends on your premiums and deductibles, the age and structure of the building, how much damage there is, the value of surrounding property and much more.
To get as much money as possible from your insurer, make sure you document and take photos of the damage as soon as possible. Then, get in touch with your insurer and have an assessor come out. You should also get in touch with a storm damage restoration specialist.
Storm Damage Scenarios
- Winter Storm Damage: Blizzards can cause roofs to fail, lead to broken trees and electricity poles, and much more.
- Hail Aftermath: This can cause shingle and siding damage, leading to long-term leaks and compounding structural damage.
- Water Damage: Water from floods can seep into foundations, ruin drywall, carpet and framing, lead to mold problems and much more.
- Damage from Wind Storms: This can rip off siding, shingles and even whole roofs, destroy glass, wreak havoc on trees and electricity hookups and cause other problems.
- Tornado and Hurricane Damage: Circular wind storms can completely destroy, such as catastrophic damage to landscaping, siding and windows.
