Summer storms in Florida don’t have to be a hurricane to wreak havoc on your home. From gusting winds to torrential downpours, a sunny day can turn into a damaging storm in the blink of an eye. While waiting out a heavy storm can be alarming, after the storm can be just as upsetting if your home or property sustained any damages. If you’re dealing with structural damage, water damage, or storm-related damage, the restoration team at Maven Construction Group is here to help.

Contact us to schedule restoration services whether you need emergency service, water damage restoration, property reconstruction, or any other storm restoration services.

Maintain Your Safety

Your number one priority after a storm should always be to ensure the safety of you and your family. Once you’ve checked the local news to confirm the danger has passed, make sure to be aware of any other dangers as you venture out from your home. Broken glass, exposed nails, and structural damage to the home can make areas unsafe to walk through. Homeowners should also be aware of any downed power lines, especially if there’s standing water nearby. Trees, even if they’re partially downed, can be another cause for concern as shifting foundations and potential winds could still cause them to fall.

Carefully Assess Damage

Even if the storm didn’t seem so bad from the inside of your home, it’s important to do a full sweep of the property to determine if there’s any storm damage. In addition to obvious damage, look for leaks or ceiling dust on the floor that may indicate that the roof suffered a stronger blow. Also, make sure to review the outside of your home for damage to the siding, roofing, and the AC unit. Take pictures of any damage you encounter so you can submit it with a claim to your insurance.

Prevent Further Damage

If water can come through broken windows or holes in the roof, that will need to be dealt with immediately. Even temporary solutions like boarding up the window or placing a bucket underneath water drips can help ensure that the damage doesn’t become worse. Left alone, water damage will weaken structures and promote mold growth, which can be difficult to remove once it’s taken hold. In instances like this, it’s best to contact a 24/7 emergency water removal company that has experience in dealing with these issues quickly and safely.

Contact Your Insurance Company

Once things are stable, contact your insurance company to begin the claims process as soon as possible. The cost of repairs or materials may be reimbursable, so it’s important to keep all of the receipts, even if you’re unsure it qualifies. Contracting professional property inspectors to review areas you might not think of or cannot safely access on your own is also a good option. They may even be able to assist during the insurance claim process. Once the process begins, make sure to follow-up with the insurance company regularly.

Choose The Right Contractor

Selecting a trustworthy contractor for storm restoration is paramount. After all, homeowners entrust them with the safety of their property and family. Make sure to look at reviews for the company and avoid “fly by night” contractors who are not locally based. Picking up the pieces after a storm can be a long and arduous process, but it can be made easier when you use the services of the restoration professionals at Maven Construction Group. Unlike other companies in the area, we self-fund restoration jobs so clients don’t have to wait for their insurance company to pay a claim before we start working.
