Hundreds of people and businesses will make insurance claims as they look to rebuild or repair the damage from Friday’s storm.
Local insurance agents say one thing is key, keep all receipts of anything purchased to repair the property. They also say to take as many photos as possible to document the damage before repairs are made. The first moves should be made to repair or shore up any parts of the home that could lead to more damage, like the roof or missing windows.
The more prepared and thorough you are in your claim, the faster it can get processed. Especially in a situation with hundreds, if not thousands of claims made in the same week.
