Catastrophe

STORM DAMAGE

Storm related damage comprises nearly 3.3 billion dollars in the United States annually. What most homeowners are not aware is that this number is not mainly derived from disasters such as the Joplin tornado picture here. Most storm damage is comprised of rebuilding or remodeling after wind and hail events. Below we have outlined, what hail does to your home, how we perform a thorough inspection process for our clients and the claim process if we determine a claim is necessary.
