Wind storms do a considerable amount of damage. The wind can blow off shingles, siding, gutters, shutters, and even blow around debris that may shatter windows and damage exterior components of the home. When this happens, you need to call an experienced Minnesota storm damage repair company as soon as possible. By repairing the wind damage immediately, you won’t have to fit the bill for even more expensive repairs in the future.
Another reason why it is important to contact your contractor as soon as possible is so you will have an estimate that you can give the insurance adjuster when they come to assess the damage. Having that estimate can help them make an accurate assessment of the damage so that you get the insurance payment you need to make the necessary repairs to your home.
After The Storm
Just because your home is still standing, doesn’t mean that damage hasn’t been done. Many times, wind damage is not evident until a bigger problem comes about. For example, many people won’t realize they have damaged shingles on their roof until water is leaking into their home. The same is true for damaged gutter systems, which can cause pooling around your home’s foundation because the water is not being properly routed through the downspout away from the foundation. Lastly, if missing or damaged siding is not immediately replaced, water can infiltrate the wall and create structural issues, as well as health issues cause by mold and mildew.
If you are not sure if there is any storm damage to the home, it is best to have the entire exterior inspected to make sure. If there is damage, you must secure the damaged area and be provided with a written estimate from a Minnesota restoration contractor. By obtaining a written estimate before the insurance adjuster shows up, you will be sure to have the funds needed to cover the damage.
One of the reasons structures are damaged by wind is not always directly by the wind, but indirectly from falling trees and debris. If a tree falls onto the home, it is very important to not go into the home until the tree is removed and the structural integrity of the home assessed. The tree will need to be removed with special equipment and then your Minnesota storm damage repair company can take a look at the structure to determine the extent of the damage and the cost to repair it. You can then provide that information to your insurance company.
