Why Choose Four Point Construction for Your Storm Damage Repair Project?

Storm damage repair is completed through a multi-step process that typically involves the following steps:

  • Inspection: Our team will thoroughly inspect your home and property to check for any damage. We’ll look over the roof, siding, gutters, windows, and doors to figure out the extent of the damage.
  • Documentation: After our inspection, our team members will put together a detailed report of all the damage we found. We will work with you to develop a complete repair plan to restore your home’s tip-top shape.
  • Explain: Once the report is all finished, we’ll discuss the entire plan to fix your home. Our team will walk you through everything to ensure you feel confident about your next steps. Finally, we’ll answer any questions and discuss if filing an insurance claim is right for moving forward.
  • Filing a claim: If you decide filing an insurance claim is the way to go, we’re here to help throughout the entire filing process. We’ll help you to ensure every step of the filing process is as smooth and efficient as possible.
  • Insurance adjustment: After filing the insurance claim, it’s time for the insurance company to send out a representative to inspect the damage. Four Point Construction will still be there with you. We know what the insurance representative will look at, and we’ll address the entire scope of the damage. Once the damage is recognized, we’ll do everything necessary to get your property back to pre-storm condition.
  • Repair plan: After the insurance carrier approves a specific scope of work, the insurance representative will present you with an itemized repair estimate. This estimate contains a prescribed scope of work. This scope of work is what we will develop their repair plan from. The repair plan will dictate the materials the property owner must choose from. Once chosen, the repair plan outlines the necessary repairs and materials being used. If there is a variance from what the insurance company has identified as damage or estimated, our team will return the differences in scope or costs to the carrier. Otherwise, the plan will also include a timeline for completing the repairs.
  • Repair: As the repair plan is finalized, our team will restore your home to its pre-storm condition. We’ll do all the repairs and replacements needed to get everything as good as new.  
  • Cleanup: Once the repairs are complete, any debris or materials left over from the repair process are cleaned up and removed.
  • Final inspection: A final inspection ensures that all repairs have been completed to a high standard and that the home is safe and structurally sound.

Storm damage repair can involve a range of repairs, depending on the extent of the damage. The repair process may take several days or even weeks, depending on the complexity of the repairs required.

What Happens if Storm Damage Repair Is Not Done or Done Incorrectly?

Storm Damage Repair

If storm damage repair is not done or done incorrectly, it can have severe consequences for homeowners. Here are some of the potential problems that can arise:

  • Insurance issues: If repairs are not done, you could lose insurance coverage and/or risk a future with higher premiums through another carrier or not even be able to get coverage until repairs are rendered. Delaying repairs could leave a property owner with thousands of dollars that the insurance company would not reimburse. Repairs not done correctly present the risk that an insurance company may not feel the property was returned to pre-storm condition and could lead to unreimbursed expenses.
    • Increased damage: Delaying or incorrectly repairing storm damage can result in further damage to the home, as the underlying cause of the damage may need to be properly addressed. This can result in costly repairs down the line and possibly repairs not recognized or covered by a property owner’s insurance company.
    • Reduced resale value: Poorly repaired storm damage can reduce the home’s resale value, as potential buyers may be wary of purchasing a home that has undergone substandard repairs.
    • Mortgage violations: Refusing to, delaying, or an incorrect repair of insurance covered storm damage could put the property owner in danger of violating the agreement they entered into when a mortgage was signed for. Stipulations in that agreement put power in the mortgage company’s hands to ensure repairs are made to the asset or property, and this could lead to a dispute with the property owner’s mortgage company.
    • Safety risks: An incorrect repair of storm damage can lead to safety risks, which can endanger homeowners and their property.
    • Legal issues: If the repairs are delayed or not done correctly, and the result is further damage or bodily injury, the homeowner may be liable for any damages or injuries.

When it comes to storm damage repair, you have to make sure you’re working with the right people. Going to a company that doesn’t know what they’re doing can lead to problems during your repair, like safety risks, insurance issues, and increased damage. Here at Four Point Construction, we are qualified storm damage repair specialists. We know all of the process’s ins and outs to ensure everything gets fixed up correctly. So, let us take care of everything for you!
