Q and A: FAQs About Full Service Storm Damage Restoration
Dealing with storm damage restoration can be stressful, but it’s a necessary inconvenience to bring back the charm and structural integrity your property has lost. Unfortunately, many property owners and managers use the wrong approach, making the process more taxing than it already is.
To help you create a blueprint for success, KAT Construction answers the most frequently asked questions about it:
Will Emergency Repairs Affect Insurance Claim Application?
Seeking professional emergency restoration services beforehand has an impact on your insurance claim application, but in a positive way. It’s imperative to temporarily patch up the affected areas even during inclement weather to avoid further damage. Once the storm lets up, then the crew can perform a thorough inspection, assess the extent of destruction and document everything.
Only after getting a detailed estimate should you call your insurance company. Involve your restoration professional in your meeting with your insurer’s adjuster to ensure fair claim investigation. If everything goes well, you should receive the first of two checks from your insurance company shortly.
Should I Hire Roofing, Siding and Window Professionals Separately?
Nine times out of ten, it pays to work with restoration professionals from one company rather than dealing with multiple contractors. If the storm also ravaged your siding and windows, in addition to your roof, strongly consider rolling them all into one repair or replacement project.
Although the initial cost will be relatively higher, expect to save on labor (or even materials) when you get them restored all at once. For instance, window and siding replacement jobs will inevitably affect each other, aesthetically and structurally, when not done at the same time.
How to Find a Reliable Storm Damage Restoration Company
Vetting a full service restoration company is only challenging if you don’t know what to look for. While personality matters, study your prospective contractor’s credentials properly. Learn about its certifications and awards to determine whether trusted names in the industry approves of its brand of service. Also, only hire a company with an A-plus rating from the Better Business Bureau to guarantee integrity.
