Storms can be quite nasty at times, and you never really know what to expect except once they’re over. The aftermath is often severe and the repairs you need to make to your home will be expensive as well.
Fortunately, if you already have a plan of action of what to do once your home was hit by a storm, you should be able to ride the whole thing out without any financial issues:
- The first thing you have to do is assess the damage, and make sure your most fragile items and furniture is safe from water damage.
- Next, make sure you take photos of damaged areas that might be included into your insurance policy. That way you will have clear evidence to show your insurer, so that they can’t ignore your claim.
- Consider a roof inspection or even a complete home inspection, to make sure you have some idea of what the full extent of the damage to your home really is. You’ll have to make sure that everything from your roof to your electric wiring and gas pipes are being checked thoroughly.
- Get written estimates from Fremont roofing contractors for any and all roofing repairs that will need to be performed. It’s important to have a detailed assessment of what everything will cost and to avoid any issues with certain contractors charging more than they’d initially stated.
