BIG STORMS MEAN INSURANCE CLAIMS
Eventually Texas will get big storms again. Some forecasters predict that the fall of
2013 will produce more rain than we have seen in years. That means there are likely to be strong
storms that damage roofs, walls and windows.
If your home, roof, walls or windows are damaged during a
storm, you should first take photographs before you do anything else. Everything in you will want to clean up
first, but take the photos or take a video first to preserve what
happened. Insurance companies will
minimize and discount your damage even if it is a disaster. Photographing before the clean up is the only
true evidence other than the remaining damage.
You can and should take steps to protect your property from
more damage from rain or the elements.
However, you can and should take photos first before you start
protecting damaged areas.
