Hurricane Damage Repair Tips
Being trapped in a hurricane is scary enough – but when it comes time to make repairs, things can get even scarier! It’s important you know what you’re doing when you respond to hurricane damage so you don’t end up with a situation worse than when you started!
Beware of “storm chasers” - After almost every storm, we see a lot of people fall victim to what we call “storm chasers” – out-of-state scammers posing as contractors to make a quick buck off of people who desperately need repairs. Storm chasers can be difficult to identify, as they often travel in trucks and vans that look like they belong to legitimate companies and offer prices that are considerably lower than most other companies. The trouble is, once you’ve paid the upfront payment, they’re gone! After a major storm or hurricane, make sure you call a reliable company for your home repairs – you don’t want to waste money on scammers!
Don’t wait for home repairs - Many people look at their homes following a storm, see no major damage to the exterior, and believe everything is ok. While this isn’t always a bad thing, we don’t encourage it – you never know what sorts of damages could be lurking just below the surface! If there has been a big storm, call R.M. Banning for a home inspection. We’ll look for leaks, cracks, and other damages that might not be immediately apparent, but can cause major problems down the road.
File the proper insurance claims - Most home insurance will cover damage from big storms. At R.M. Banning, our experienced general contractors can take the helm and work with your insurance company so you receive the full benefits you’re entitled to.
