Storm Damage Restoration - Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I have storm damage?

There are many answers to this question. If a severe storm came through your area, and/or you see your neighbors getting work done to their home, it is a good possibility you could have damage as well. A few things you can do is:

Should I still call a professional if I dont see any damage to my roof?

I see a downed power line, what should i do?

Never touch them. Always assume that a fallen power line is live meaning electricity is still flowing through it, and follow these tips:

  • Avoid touching the downed line with your hand or an object, such as a stick, broom or pole.
  • Avoid touching anything, such as a car, object or equipment that is in contact with a fallen power line.
  • Do not drive over a fallen power line.
  • Call 911 immediately to report a fallen power line.

How long do I have to file a claim?

It varies by insurance company, but most insurance policies limit your time to file a claim, within 12-24 months of the storm. Make sure to contact your insurance agent to verify the timeframe in which you can file a claim.

Will my premiums go up if I file a claim?

Filing a single claim should not raise your premiums especially from an “act of God” However if a region is hit by a major storm the whole regions premiums could go up
