What to Expect During the Storm Restoration Process

Between flooding, tornadoes, and hurricanes, storms can be frightening. But sometimes it’s the damage they leave behind that evoke real fear. Storms can leave destroyed houses and buildings in their wake, leaving you searching for a property restoration company to help pick up the pieces. But what should you expect during the storm restoration process? Keep reading to learn about how Atlantic Property Restoration will handle your damaged property.

Assess the Damage

The first thing we’ll do is come and look at your home. Every storm can cause different issues with your home, so it’s important to understand all the repairs needed from the beginning. This helps give us a budget and timeline for the restoration process, as well as know which repairs should take priority.

One of the first issues we will look for is water damage. Water, while fun in the local swimming pool, can destroy your home’s foundation and interior if not dealt with within the first 24 to 48 hours after the storm. If left untreated, water damage can lead to the development of mold and mildew, which is horrible for your home and your health. Mold and mildew can lead to wood rot and weakening of your home’s foundation. It can also lead to health problems, like allergic reactions, red and runny eyes, coughing, and breathing issues.

We will also want to examine the roof, plumbing, and electrical in your home. The roof can suffer a lot of damage, especially from a storm like a tornado or a hurricane—really any storm with strong winds. A weakened roof can lead to concerns about it caving in, leaking water, or letting in rodents and bugs. Broken plumbing can lead to water or sewage leaks in your home, while electrical issues can cause electrocution concerns, especially if there is leaking water.

Involve Your Insurance for Storm Restoration

Once Atlantic Property Management assesses the damage, you should call your insurance company and get them involved. Atlantic Property Management will work with your adjuster to get your property fixed. You will need to file a claim with your insurance company, which the insurance company will review. If it’s approved, you can move forward with repairs. Atlantic Property Management will advise what materials and tools are needed for the repairs before work begins.

Begin the Repairs

Once insurance is involved, Atlantic Property Management can begin the storm restoration repairs. We will keep you informed along the way so you know the budget and the timeline. We will begin by drying out any water damage and sealing up any openings that could allow entry by bugs or rodents. Then we’ll proceed with the rest of the repairs, completing them correctly and as quickly as possible.

Move Back Home!

Once the repairs are completed, if you had to move out because of the damage, it’s time to move into your “new” home! Atlantic Property Restoration will submit all the required paperwork for your insurance company, verifying the work is completed. Then your insurance company will issue payment. All that’s left is for you to enjoy being home sweet home!
