Storm season means anxiety and the possibility of storm damage to your home.
It seems that new storms threatening the United States are being reported on every week. Most of us watch the news or check weather.com every day until we know we’re in the clear or need to make an evacuation plan. Either way, the initial feelings for most homeowners is weather this storm will be the one that brings major damage to their house.
The home repair and construction experts at B. Chaney Improvements are ready to help homeowners if and when the time comes. We have decades of experience in building homes, doing complete renovations and executing homes repairs…the correct way.
Since “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” we recommend making sure existing issues that will let water in your home be fixed before storms hit. These issues should be evident now, because of all the rain falling on the Lowcountry in the last few weeks.
Of course once a storm has passed, you will want to fix the damage to keep future rain or flood waters out, because water leads to more extensive damage. This damage includes rot and mold, making for a dangerous and hazardous environment.
Steps for Storm Damage
Here is a short list of steps to take if you need home repairs due to storm damage:
- Know what your insurance policy covers regarding wind and water damage.
- Contact your insurance agent as soon as the damage occurs, because waiting can make the situation worse.
- Be persistent to get the claim processed right away, as storm water damage can quickly become a bigger problem.
