State Farm: Storm Season Preparedness

News

Storm season is upon us and it’s important to be prepared. 

Storm Season Preparation

  • Storms can be emotionally and financially overwhelming
  • Measures you take now help weather the storm 
  • Review Insurance Coverage
  • Create a Home Inventory

Threatening Weather:

  • Safety first
  • Move cars, boats, RVs and outdoor furniture under cover
  • Close drapes, blinds and shades to reduce blowing glass broken by hail
  • If remodeling consider impact-resistant roofing to reduce hail damage

After the Storm:

  • When safe, visually inspect your home for damage.
  • Document damage with pictures.
  • Make temporary repairs to prevent additional damage
  • Save your receipts and take pictures of temporary repairs

Hiring a Contractor:

  • Ask friends and neighbors for recommendations
  • Be aware of door-to-door solicited repairs
  • Get multiple written estimates
  • Always have a written, detailed estimate
  • Don’t pay up front. Always inspect the completed work before payment
