A storm can uproot everything–literally– and cause you major stress when dealing with the aftermath. With all the debris and moisture, how would you even begin to clean things up?
Before you list down all the immediate things you need to, such as shopping for fiberglass replacement windows so you won’t ever have to deal with dangerous glass, here’s a nice checklist on priorities post-storm.
Before anything else, ensure that everything is safe for you and your family and no danger is lying around your house. This is especially true with live wires, which could react with flood water, and other sharp or pointed objects that might have been brought in by the storm.
Make a Checklist for Your Home
From your metal roof down to your French patio door, note the parts of your property that might have been damaged by the storm. Through this document, you’ll be able to make a rough estimate of the resulting expenses.
Secure Your Insurance
This would be a good time to check on your insurance policies and review them. It’s a good idea to record in detail all the damage the storm has inflicted, using either video or several photos. After this, call your insurer and review your findings with them. Some roofing companies also help with filing an insurance claim for storm-damaged homes, such as 3G Roofing. We have years of experience dealing with insurance companies, so when you work with us, this part will be easy.
Contact a Contractor
After a thorough checkup, a contractor can help you determine the different problems you might have missed and can provide you an idea what else you need to deal with. We can also include add-ons, such as gutter repair, to prevent future occurrences of the problem. You can also talk to us about possible gutter installation cost.
