What to Expect After a Storm

Harm caused by severe weather can be a big problem for your family or business, and repairing it can be a complex undertaking. To get the damage fixed quickly and safely, you need a restoration service company that focuses on returning your home back to pre-storm conditions. We have the training, tools and experience it takes.

Once the disaster has passed, it’s important to assess the damage and start cleaning up. Below, read more about the problems different storm systems can cause and how you can protect your structure in different circumstances.

Insurance Payouts

The payout you get from insurance depends on policy specifics, the severity of harm to your property, your property value and more.

Most storms are considered acts of God, which means that your insurance company can’t single you out. But waiting too long to file can make you ineligible for coverage, and entire neighborhoods can be subject to rate increases following disasters. Always file claims as quickly as possible so you don’t end up with no payout but higher premiums.

Storm Damage Scenarios

  • Winter Storm Damage: Heavy snow can collapse roofs, lead to broken trees and electricity poles, and cause other harm.
  • Hail Aftermath: Major hail storms can bend and crack shingles and siding, causing hidden leaks and compounding damage.
  • Damage from Wind Storms: This can damage structures, lead to broken windows, wreak havoc on trees and power grids and more.
  • Tornado and Hurricane Damage: Circular wind storms can wreak havoc on your home or business, like catastrophic damage to roofs, windows, siding and landscaping.
  • Water Damage: Floods can seep into foundations, ruin drywall, carpet and framing, lead to mold proliferation and more.
