What to do if Severe Weather Damages Your Home

What to do if Severe Weather Damages Your Home

Feb 12, 2021

Regardless of the time of the year, there’s always a chance that severe weather could roll into the area. And when that happens, it’s natural to have concerns about the well-being of your home and surrounding area.

If you have any reason to believe that severe weather has damaged your home—such as the result of a fallen tree—it’s critical that you take immediate action. Here’s where you should start:

•    Assess the damage from the ground

•    Take photos, especially if you plan on filing an insurance claim

•    Consider if you can make repairs yourself (at least until a professional arrives)

•    Contact a contractor who can further assess the damage and provide feedback on what to do next

Don’t make the mistake of assuming that the damage “isn’t that bad.” If you do this, you put your home at risk of additional damage, such as by letting water inside your home.

You hope your home is able to stand up to anything that comes its way, but you never know when a big storm will hit the area. If damage occurs, take immediate action.
