HOW TO PROTECT YOUR HOME FROM STORM DAMAGE
As heavy storms are becoming a more frequent occurrence, it is important to protect your home from the risk of storm damage and the cost of restoration. The steps below will keep you prepared for any form of storm damage.
Protect and maintain all areas that are more likely to be affected by storm damage.
Ensuring adequate maintenance is carried out regularly on your property is important, it will ensure loose fittings, damaged gutters etc. do not cause further damage during a storm.
Failure to carry out this maintenance may leave you unprotected when making claims. Items that need regular maintenance include your roof, guttering, windows, doors and garden.
Have a flood plan if your area is prone to flooding
A flood plan should highlight a risk of actions you can take to protect your property and family in the event of a flood. It typically involves how you evacuate and secure your home in the event of the unforeseen.
Ensure that you have adequate insurance coverage
Most insurance companies work to provide homeowners with a protection plan for their specific needs. But you should still shop around or work closely with a trusted insurance agent to make sure your coverage fits your needs and your budget. Much like auto insurance, it may be helpful to shop around every so often to make sure your getting the best options for your specific needs.
Prepare your building for the storm
At the first sign of an impending storm, the first thing to do is to walk around your home and watch out for anything that might be loose, which could get blown away or damaged by high winds. Other steps to take include:
Ensure all windows and doors are closed
Ensure cars are parked away from fences and trees
Shed or take all garden items inside
Stay indoors throughout the storm.
WHAT TO DO AFTER A STORM?
Staying updated on changing weather conditions can not only keep your family safe, but it can also help you protect your property. But after a storm blows through, what should you do?
After the storm has passed and it’s safe to venture outside you should walk around your property and look for any signs of storm damage. This could include mutilated flower pots, holes in your siding, broken windows, missing shingles, downed trees, etc.
Take Pictures Of Any Damage
As devastating as a storm can be, every one seems to get enjoyment by seeing images of storm damage. Most will send images of hail stones and other damage to news stations for viewers to see, but this step can also have a key impact when filing an insurance claim. In most cases, most homeowners will not file an insurance claim for minor storm damage for fear that they will lose their coverage. By taking photos to document damage you can help not only make your case to the insurance company, but it will also act as a great record if damages aren’t directly present or if a claim needs to be filed years later. Do not leave damages undocumented! The insurance companies will be left to determine when or if damages occurred to your property, leading to denied claims.
Schedule An Inspection
This is one of the most important steps! Most people believe that small hail stones or only a couple minutes of hail won’t cause any damage. THEY ARE WRONG! Even though damage may not be visible doesn’t mean that it didn’t happen. You’re better off scheduling an inspection by a professional, most good contractors offer their inspection services for free. Why not take advantage of it?
Most homeowners will skip this step if their visual inspection doesn’t turn up anything. This can lead to denied claims from insurance companies if they can determine the age of damage. Don’t leave it to your insurance company to determine what should be fixed and shouldn’t! A roof leak due to damage from 3 years ago could cost you thousands to repair when a simple inspection could have been done for free!
File An Insurance Claim for Storm Damage Repair Costs
As mentioned previously, minor damages may not require an insurance claim to be filed, but without a professional inspection you might never see an issue until it’s too late. Following your inspection, review your insurance policy to determine if a claim should be filed. Brincks Exteriors Des Moines offers assistance to homeowners throughout the claims process and can even work on your behalf with the insurance companies to complete the repairs.
