7 Tips for Hiring a Storm Damage Restoration Contractor

 #1: Look for a Contractor With an Emergency Response Team

Storms don’t happen during business hours, so when one hits, homeowners need a storm damage restoration contractor who is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

#2: Verify the Restoration Will Start Very Quickly

Coming out on emergency calls is a good start, but storm damage restoration needs to begin as quickly as possible. Verify the contractor will be completing the entire restoration process now, not next week. Delaying restoration efforts can lead to secondary damage, such as mold. 

#3: Choose a Contractor With the Right Tools for the Job

Storm restoration damage can involve several different elements. The best contractors can deal with all of them, from roof repairs to pumping out the basement. The contractor should also be able to coordinate all these services effectively and quickly. 

#4: Research the Contractor's Reputation

Satisfied customers are the greatest indication that a storm damage restoration contractor will do a good job. Check out testimonials from former customers before choosing a company. 

#5: Make Sure the Contractor is Licensed and Good Accreditations

Many of the tasks involved in storm damage restoration require licenses. It is important to make sure the company has the right credentials. Details should be on the company’s website. Their site should also include information about accreditations, which are also an important indicator of the company’s abilities. 

#6: Ask If the Contractor Helps With Insurance Claims

Storm damage restoration can be very expensive, and the insurance claims process is daunting for many homeowners. An expert storm damage restoration contractor understands how to file claims and should be willing to help ensure nothing is missed that could result in a claim denial. 

#7: Opt for a Contractor That Uses High-Quality Equipment and Materials

Many storm damage restoration contractors have favorite brands they use in restoration projects. Before hiring a contractor, find out what equipment and materials they work with and make sure they are high quality.
