What Are Some Results of Storm Damage to Look Out For?

Storms seem to be a more regular occurrence than they were decades ago, but the age-old story of insurance companies not wanting to pay out to homeowners remains a commonly seen problem.

We at Strems Law Firm feel you should have strong representation when your home is subject to storm damage. We understand what to look for around your property after a storm strikes to start your legal battle for the insurance payout you deserve.

Roof Damage

Let's start at the top of your home with the roof. Most homes across the nation have shingles as their dominant roofing material. These shingles are equipped with a grainy metallic covering designed to reflect the damaging UV-rays from the Sun. A hail event will result in what is described as a bruise created when metallic granules are knocked off individual shingles to leave dark spots on the roof.

Following any storm, extreme caution should be exercised when making an inspection because a limb may have fallen from a tree to cause structural damage to your property. We believe in inspecting metal and tile roofing systems for split seams and broken parts of the roof.

Damage to the Exterior of Your Home

We have seen many different forms of damage to homes just like yours, including problems with siding and paint. Strems Law Firm believes any cracks, dents, or chipped paint should be taken care of as part of your homeowner's insurance policy. Strong winds, hail, rain, and flying debris can all cause problems with the exterior of your home when damaging weather systems pass through your area.

Windows Can Be Problematic

We all enjoy a clear view and plenty of light from our homes, but we understand windows are often damaged during storms. Not only are shattered windows a problem, but damaged frames and broken panes can also be a problem for the future of your home.

If you are affected by storm damage your first call should be to our team at Strems Law Firm to get the help you need to seek the benefits you need to get your home back in working order.
