HOW TO PROTECT YOUR HOME FROM STORM DAMAGE
As heavy storms become more common, it is important to protect your home from the risk and cost of repairs. Follow the steps below to avoid costly bills and unfinished repairs:
1. Protect and maintain all areas that are more likely to be affected by storms.
Ensuring your exterior is in good shape and protected is important. If you’re regularly checking all of the weak points, you can avoid further damage on loose fittings or leaking gutters.
Failure to carry out this maintenance may leave you unprotected when making claims. Items that need regular checks and maintenance include your roof, gutters, windows, and doors.
2. Have a flood plan if your area is prone to flooding
A flood plan should highlight the actions you can take to protect your property and family in the event of a flood. It typically involves how to evacuate and secure your home in an emergency.
3. Ensure that you have good insurance coverage
Most insurance companies work to provide homeowners with a protection plan for their specific needs. Even so, you should still look at several different companies and only work with a trusted insurance agent to make sure your coverage fits your needs and your budget.
4. Prepare your home for the storm
At the first sign of bad weather, the first thing to do is to walk around your home and watch out for anything that might be loose. Loose objects can blow away, causing damage to your home and many others. Other steps to take include:
- Ensure all windows and doors are closed
- Ensure cars are parked away from fences and trees
- Make sure all garden tools & light objects are put away
- Stay indoors throughout the storm
WHAT DO I DO AFTER A STORM?
It’s important to be aware of the predicted length of the storm before you come out of your home and start the clean up. Once it is deemed safe to leave, you should start the following steps:
1. Visual Inspection
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 smashed flower pots, holes in your siding, broken windows, missing shingles, downed trees, etc.
2. Take Pictures Of Any Damage
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 not only help make your case to the insurance company, but the photo evidence 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 any damages undocumented! The insurance companies will need to determine when or if damages occurred to your property, leading to many denied claims.
3. 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 doesn’t happen. You’re better off scheduling an inspection by a professional and many good contractors even offer the initial inspection for free? Why not take advantage of a great offer?
Most homeowners will skip this step if their personal visual inspection doesn’t turn up anything. This can lead to denied claims from insurance companies if they can’t 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!
4. File An Insurance Claim for Storm Damage Repair Costs
As mentioned previously, minor damages may not require an insurance claim, but without a professional inspection you might never see an issue until it’s too late. Brincks Exteriors in Des Moines offers assistance to homeowners throughout the claims process and can even work on your behalf with the insurance companies to complete the necessary repairs.
