The first and most important step in this entire process is to first call your insurance company and file a claim for the damage that has occurred to your home. It’s never a good idea to delay your initial claim as damage (especially from water intrusion) can become much more costly after only a few days if proper steps are not taken to mitigate the damage.
Here Is How The Storm Damage Repair Process in Oconomowoc Usually Works
#1. You File a Claim – If your home has been damaged the first thing you’re going to need to do is file a claim with your insurance provider. Work cannot proceed (unless you are paying out of pocket) without your insurance companies approval. Insurance providers in the state of Wisconsin won’t recommend a contractor to you but they will encourage you to get more than one estimate and finding the contractors to provide them are going to be up to you.
#2. You Call a Contractor – It’s important to work with a contractor who has experience in these types of projects as there are very specific details and documentation your insurance company is going to want before they approve the repairs to your home. Your contractor should understand the urgency of your situation and can provide an assessment and an estimate for you fairly quickly.
#3. Your Contractor Provides An Estimate – Your contractor will do a thorough inspection of the home and the damaged areas. This inspection should include having to take detailed photos of the damage, accurate measurements and calculations of any materials required so that your insurance company can get a very clear picture of what the problem is and what it will cost them to repair it for you.
For smaller claims a detailed report is generally enough to proceed but for much larger claims with extensive damage to the home your insurance company will likely want to send out an adjuster to have a look too.
#4. Once Your Insurance Provider Approves The Work Can Start – Once your claim has been approved then your contractor can begin ordering materials and getting started on your project. The time it takes to complete will depend entirely on the scope of the work involved and when exteriors are involved the weather also plays a role.
This Process Can Take Several Days – In The Meantime What About Your Home!?
If your home has suffered damage and you have a roof leak for example then you need to have temporary measures put into place immediately. Your insurance company can approve this work, especially if it’s going to prevent further insurable loss or damage to the home. As a contractor we can help clean up the initial mess and implement the best temporary measures to keep your home and contents protected until the full repairs are approved and can be completed.
We understand the inconvenience and stress that goes along with unexpected home repairs and we’ll work with you and your insurance company to come up with the most amicable solution to keep your family and your home safe.
