How to Deal with Insurance Companies for Storm Damage Repair

When a storm ravages an area, it results in a need for storm damage repair on a scale that is taxing both to homeowners and insurance adjusters. While insurance companies all promise quick responses and fast claim settlements, the truth of the matter is that after a major storm, very little moves quickly. In the midst of all this, your home may not be inhabitable, and delaying repairs could make the situation worse. It can also be confusing who to call to take care of the storm damage repair, since it might include everything from tree removal to reconstruction. The solution to all these dilemmas is to call a fully licensed general contractor who specializes in insurance restoration and offers 24-hour emergency service.

A company that specializes in insurance restoration will work directly with insurance adjusters to reach an agreement on the scope of the damage and then progress through the rebuild process. This will bode well for the homeowner because insurance adjusters often work better with the contractor than they do the homeowner, in part because the emotional component is removed.

The advantage of working with a general contractor is that they can handle every aspect of the storm damage repair, which saves the homeowner from dealing with multiple companies. A general contractor is also licensed to handle everything from construction to plumbing to electrical work. They often have far more sources for materials, as well, which can be a huge advantage when supplies run short due to widespread damage in an area from a major storm.

As a preventative measure, seek out a contractor before there is a problem and have their number handy. Call them and your insurance company immediately after the damage occurs, and make sure they are able to contact each another. This gets you on the storm damage repair list quickly and thus back in your home much faster.
