What to do After the Storm

Immediately do what you can to minimize the damage to your property.

After the Storm, you should make any necessary temporary repairs to your property by removing any fallen trees, and tarp your roof!! Do what you can to dry up any excess water inside your home.

A storm damage project doesn't have to be overwhelming and if you do a little investigation beforehand and gather all your concerns with your chosen repair contractor, you can have a completely successful insurance claim project. You should consult with Alvin L. Davis, Inc. Remodeler to make certain you can get all the necessary permits.

If a tree has fallen on your house not all of the storm damage to your property may be visible. It is very important that you let me inspect the storm damage with you prior to your agreement to settle with your insurance company. 

It is very common for your insurance company to make an initial settlement with you in order to close the file. I am an expert at carefully going over the list of items that may have been damaged.
If I find more storm damage than your adjuster, we simply re-open your file and make a supplemental claim for the damaged roof. It is very common for us to submit an estimate for additional repairs missed by your adjuster or repair of items uncovered during repairs.

Before starting any Savannah insurance repair project, you need to work out a plan to prepare a proper estimate then negotiate the storm damage settlement with your adjuster. A roof protects you and your most valuable investment – your home – as well as the possessions inside. Your roof is one of the most expensive assemblies attached to your house.  So, when it’s time to hire a storm damage roofing contractor, you want to work with one that provides you with superior materials and workmanship.
