The aftermath of severe weather related activity is never fun to deal with. If you are lucky, you can at least be grateful that you and your loves ones are unscathed. Yet, then comes the task of dealing with the cleanup and, in many cases, storm repairs in Austin.
The problem is that, in the event of anything close to a natural disaster, what happens is that the out of town contractors swiftly move in to “Help” often leaving shoddy home repair work in their wake. In the midst of a crisis, if you can keep your senses about you then you will be able to avoid falling victim to some common issues or scams.
Handling the Situation
The first order of business is to wait for the storms to subside and wait for clearance, before venturing outside to assess the damage. Avoid injury from downed power lines or possible structural collapse. Once the coast is clear, here are some things to keep in mind when scheduling storm repairs in Austin:
- Even if the storm did not seem that severe or it appears that your neighborhood did not sustain the brunt of the activity, it is important to get a professional assessment. Just try to make sure you can work with someone local. This way, if you are unsatisfied with the work upon completion, they are still reachable and able to return to fix the mistakes.
- Do not procrastinate when it comes to getting your potential damaged surveyed. Too many homeowners do a quick visual sweep of their home from the ground and assume that is good enough. Months later when a problem does present itself, it will be too late. Once you miss that window of opportunity to file a claim, your insurance provider will be unwilling to cover the damages. This means you get to pay for them, out of your own pocket.
- Check the credentials of the roofing company you are considering. The last thing that you need is to end up stuck with inferior work, that your insurance company paid for, and end up needing another professional to come in and repair the work that has been done.
