Frequently Asked Questions About Storm Damage Services
Q. Can Storm Damage Impact the Value of My Home?
A. Like most other types of home damage, storm damage can take a serious toll on the overall beauty and value of your home. In order to keep the value of your home high, it’s important to have your storm damage repairs completed before the damage to your home is able to worsen or spread to other areas of your home.
Q. How Do I Know if My Home Has Suffered Storm Damage?
A. There are a number of things you can do in the wake of storm to determine whether or not your home has suffered damage of some kind. Some storm damage is fairly obvious, like broken windows or damaged siding, but there are many other forms of damage that aren’t as obvious, making them particularly dangerous to the long-term health of your home. If a rough storm comes through the area and you notice other homeowners having to repair their home, it’s a safe bet that there are one or more elements of your home that could use repairs as well. To be safe, it’s always a good idea to have a professional roofing contractor come out to your home and give it a thorough inspection to identify any potential issues.
Q. Why Should I Get My Home Inspected For Storm Damage?
A. Getting your home inspected for storm damage is likely one of the most important things you can do after a storm comes through the area. Having a professional take a look at your home ensure that you have an experienced eye going over every aspect, and might help you catch small details that you would have otherwise missed on your own. Identifying damage early so it can be repaired is the best way to prevent damage from spreading to other areas of your home and keep your repair costs as low as possible.
Q. What Is A “Storm Chaser?”
A. “Storm Chaser” is a term that’s often used to describe some of the more disreputable contractors out there that move from town to town in the wake of storms or other disasters in order to snatch up quick sales. These contractors often dispatch sales teams to quickly get as many homes under contract as possible before they move off to the next area. More often than not, these companies have terrible reputations in terms of service, and since they’re rarely local, it’s very difficult to hold them accountable for the sub-par work they often deliver. In our experience, most homes that opt for service from these “Storm Chasers” wind up having to have the work done more than once as these companies are rarely certified to perform the services they’re selling. When it comes to storm damage repairs, it’s always a better idea to hire a local contractor.
