You might have been following the news and listening to all of the meteorologist’s guidance on storms, but it is difficult to not be shocked during a storm. Hail, wind, and flying debris can make you feel powerless. You do not have the power to stop or even lighten the storm, but you do have control over what to do after the storm passes. Atlanta Pro Roofing is an experienced roofing company, but we know a thing or two about storms. This article will go over some steps that you should take after a storm if you want to minimize damage, ensure safety, and guarantee insurance coverage. Call Atlanta Pro Roofing if your roof has been damaged and you need an expert at your property as soon as possible.
Safety Comes First
Before you get into the nitty gritty of restoring your property, make sure that you and your loved ones are safe. A storm, with all of its powerful gusts of wind, torrential rainfall, and lightning strikes, can turn your property into a metaphorical minefield. Live power lines, mold, black water, and leaning trees pose serious risks to your health and life. If your property is in ruins, then consider heading to an emergency shelter, staying with friends or family, or renting a hotel until an inspector evaluates your home. Your insurance company might cover the expenses.
Take photos, videos, and notes of the damages so that you do not have to argue with your property insurance provider when it is time to file an insurance claim. Document everything from the date to the duration of the storm to the degree of damage. Consider hiring an independent, third-party inspector to give you an unbiased and thorough damage assessment.
Your property insurance company will also likely send an inspector of their own. Be sure to document any conversations with the insurance inspector. Also, file your insurance claim as soon as possible, without rushing anything. Don’t delay! Many property insurance companies have deadlines for filing claims. Time is of the essence.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency is responsible for providing a variety of assistance to victims of storm damage. Contact the local FEMA branch in your area to get help with temporary housing, meals, repairs, and filing insurance claims. FEMA agents also travel through neighborhoods that are severely damaged. So, you might be able to speak to a representative in person.

We recommend that you leave roof repairs and roof replacements to the experts, but there are some steps that you can carefully take to prevent further damage. Covering damaged roofs with plastic tarps and board up broken windows with some planks. Remember to keep receipts if you want to be reimbursed by your applicable property insurance policy.
