Damage Storms Can Cause

Severe storms can be furious and frightening, and safety has to be your first priority. If your area has seen major problems, be careful. If you suspect structural damage or more flooding, stay out until a professional says it’s safe. Stay with a friend or find other shelter until you’re confident it’s safe.

Get through the storm, and then take a look at the aftermath. Read below for more.

Storm Damage Insurance

How much you get from insurance depends on policy specifics, the severity of harm to your property, the previous condition of the property and more.

Make a list of the damage, keep track of all your receipts and get on the phone with your insurer and a storm damage restoration contractor.

Storm Damage Scenarios

  • Winter Storm Damage: Blizzards can cause collapsed roofs, lead to broken trees and electricity poles, and cause other harm.
  • Hail Aftermath: Major hail storms can damage siding and shingles, and that can mean roof leaks and compounding structural damage.
  • Wind Damage: This can rip off siding, shingles and even whole roofs, lead to broken windows, destroy trees and landscaping and electric systems and cause other problems.
  • Tropical Storm and Tornado Damage: Circular winds can cause serious damage to all parts of your property, including catastrophic damage to siding, roofs, landscaping and more.
  • Damage from Flooding: Water from floods can get into your building’s foundation, ruin drywall, carpet and framing, lead to mold growth and much more.
