Storm season is upon us; do you know what to do if your property is damaged due to a storm?  Here are some helpful tips:

• Call your insurance company as soon as you can
• Try and protect your property and salvage what you can
• Closely inspect property for damage and photograph any damage and losses as this will assist in settling claims
• Be sure your agent knows how to contact you if you can’t stay in your home
• If required to seek temporary housing, check your policy for loss of use coverage
• Many policies cover such expenses up to a stated amount
• Do not make a hasty settlement and if possible, seek assistance from a third party
• Make sure everything is considered in your claim. Back-up claims with written estimates
• Carefully check the background of contractors and others who promise “cheap“ repairs
• Don’t pay the entire cost of repairs up-front, and try to only do business with local, established contractors
• Before signing any contract, read the entire document, and contact your local Better Business Bureau® or the Ohio Attorney General’s Office to see if the company has a good customer service record
