What to Do When Your Property Suffers Windstorm Damage, La Marque, Texas

The professionals from Cobalt Engineering in La Marque, TX, know hurricane season is fast approaching, which is why they offer a wide range of services designed to keep your commercial and residential property in good condition. One of the most common hurricane-related issues is windstorm damage, which can affect even the strongest building. It isn’t always easy to determine what to do when your property has suffered extensive windstorm damage, so Cobalt Engineering has compiled some helpful facts for you. 

What to Do if Your Property Falls Victim to Windstorm Damage

Check to Make Sure Your Structure is Safe

If your property has received extensive windstorm damage due to a hurricane, one of the first things you should do is ensure the building is safe; any extensive roof damage or foundation damage means you should contact a reliable wind damage repair expert immediately. Avoid entering it or remain outside until a professional can certify it’s safe to enter. Minor or cosmetic wind damage most likely won’t affect your safety. However, it’s always a good idea to give your property a thorough examination after a hurricane to take an inventory of the damage.

Whether you have a few torn shingles or a tree sticking through the window, one of the most important things to do after ensuring everyone is safe is documenting the windstorm damage by taking pictures or videos. Doing so is beneficial because you can have a record for insurance purposes, as well as photos to send to potential repair companies for an estimate. 

Contact a Repair Company & Your Insurance Provider

After documenting your damages, it’s important to notify your insurance company of the extent of damage to your property, as they will likely cover some, if not all, of the repair costs. Once you’ve notified your insurance company, it’s time to find a reliable windstorm damage repair professional to inspect your property and repair the windstorm damage.
