Damage Storms Can Cause
Major storms can be frightening and dangerous, and safety has to be your first priority. If your region has seen serious storm-related damage, use caution.

Insurance for Storm Damage
Coverage amounts vary based on your region, the specifics of your policy, the severity of damage and additional factors.
First, document the damage to your home to the best of your ability. Take a lot of photos and keep track of expenses regarding appliances, maintenance work and more. Then, contact a restoration contractor and your insurance company. Your agent will send a person to assess the damage. The best contractors can coordinate insurance companies to help you keep costs down.
