Over the summer we had a pretty damaging storm system sweep through Minnesota. Some of the cities that suffered the worst of the storm include Coon Rapids, Blaine, Circle Pines, and Lino lakes. Thousands of homeowners suffered damages to there roof, siding, windows, gutters, garage doors, fencing and vehicles. When a big storm powers through it can leave a lot of people in the dark about where to begin the rebuilding process and get the necessary repairs done to their home. Homeowners and business owners find themselves submitting an insurance claim with their carrier, and then need to seek out a reliable contractor to execute the repairs. Here are a few tips to help those effected and to educate others that may have to go through the process in the future.
Understanding your Insurance policies, processes and procedures.
Most people can go their whole life paying premiums for home owner insurance without ever understanding the coverage that the policy provides, or how to begin the process of making an insurance claim for storm damage. We have helped hundreds of homeowners in the Twin Cities Metro understand processes and procedures so they can get their home back together. There can be a lot of terminology and confusing paperwork that can leave the homeowner confused and not sure where to go next. Alexander Exteriors has the knowledge and experience to help you every step of the insurance process and get you on the right track in resorting your home from the storm.
2) Selecting a roofing contractor for storm repairs.
If you live in a city like Blaine that was effected by the hail storm you have likely experienced the world of the “door knockers”. Shortly after a large storm comes through a densely populated area, contractors from all over the country can flood the area. Many roofing and exterior contractors will send teams of “Door Knockers” to canvass the damaged areas so they can offer their services. Sometimes people can be approached at their home dozens of times over the course of a weekend. Many of these contractors have the resources to get the job done and can do a great job. Some contractors can be labeled as “storm chasers” and unfortunately may be difficult to reach once the bulk of storm repairs have been addressed. If the company is not local they may have already moved on to another city or state that also had a storm. It is important to select a contractor that will not just provide a warranty for their services, but actually be around to back up the warranty. What’s the solution?
When choosing a roofing contractor to repair your home we always advise homeowners to do some research. The internet can be a powerful resource to homeowners so they may see that if a roofing company is local or just in town for the storm repairs and may not be around the area very long once the demand subsides.
