Author: Chris Massie March 8, 2024

After a storm rolls through your area, it can leave a lot of devastation in its wake.

  • Branches and leaves littered across lawns.
  • Puddles and ditches full of water.
  • Siding and shingles can be blown off houses and buildings.
  • Trees can crush rooflines and vehicles.

When this happens, it can put your brain into a tailspin.
Understanding the first steps in the restoration process can provide much-needed clarity during this chaotic time.

Let us answer four common questions that help with navigating the restoration process after experiencing storm damage.


1. What is the First Step in the Restoration Process after Storm Damage?

The initial step in storm damage restoration is a thorough assessment of the affected property.

Our experienced team of professionals promptly arrives at your location to assess the extent of the damage.

This assessment is essential, as it guides our restoration plan and allows us to prioritize areas that require immediate attention.

By conducting a comprehensive evaluation, we gain valuable insights into the scope of the damage, enabling us to create a tailored restoration strategy for your home.


2. How Long Does it Take for Professionals to Assess the Storm Damage?

Our dedicated team understands the urgency of the situation, which is why we begin to assess the damage promptly.

Typically, our professionals arrive to your property the same day, and they can complete the initial assessment in a matter of hours.

This swift response ensures that the restoration process can begin, minimizing further damage and expediting the restoration timeline.

This sets us up to begin the estimate phase next, which will be the comprehensive game plan for how to restore your property.


3. What Will the Restoration Professionals Look for During the Inspection?

During the inspection, our skilled professionals meticulously examine every aspect of the affected property.

We assess the structural integrity of the building, identifying areas that may require immediate stabilization or repairs.

Our inspection also includes an assessment of water damage, since many storms bring winds and rain.

This ensures that all sources of damage are addressed comprehensively.

By conducting a detailed inspection, we can develop a comprehensive restoration plan tailored to your specific needs.


4. What Happens after the Initial Assessment?

After the initial assessment has been completed, our team begins working on the estimate of repairs.

Together with your insurance company’s adjuster, we work with them to create an estimate that will repair everything that needs repaired.

If you have been dreaming of remodeling specific rooms, this is the time to talk about how we can make those dreams your new reality.

In times of distress, having a knowledgeable and compassionate restoration team by your side can make all the difference.
