Storm Damage Checklist
When your home is hit by severe weather in the form of hail, high winds and other occurrences, it’s natural to be afraid. Don’t panic! MasterPro Roofing and Exteriors will take care of all your storm repair needs, no matter how large or small. If you’ve experienced damage to your home and belongings, follow these steps.
- Contact MasterPro if you know there’s damage to your home, and even if you’re not sure. As storm damage repair specialists, we can help you determine if the level of damage justifies filing a claim with your homeowner’s insurance company. We can assist you with filing a claim and make sure you get a fair settlement.
- Contact your insurance company to notify them that you have sustained storm damage (although they will likely know already) and request an adjuster visit. In cases of widespread damage, it may take one or two weeks to get on their schedule, so be patient.
- If you’ve sustained enough damage to Akron roofing, you should try to temporarily cover weakened areas to prevent water from leaking into your home until permanent repairs can be made. One call to MasterPro, and we’ll bring in tarps that will protect damaged areas until we can get back on-site with materials and a crew.
- Check fences, decks and patios for dents and marks. Inspect windows for cracks and breaks. These can also be included in a storm damage claim.
- Check trees around your home for fallen or damaged limbs. If the limbs fell near the house, make sure that they didn’t damage gutters, air conditioners or other exterior components.
- If personal property has been damaged due to hail or water, wait until the insurance company can take pictures and determine replacement costs. Document the items that were damaged, including as much detail as possible to speed processing of your claim.
