Find out if insurance will cover damages.

The amount that your insurance covers may surprise you. Many people believe that their insurance will only cover the bare minimum, but many plans cover most hurricane-related damage caused by factors such as wind or water. It’s important to reach out to your provider immediately after your home incurs hurricane damage. We work with all insurance companies and will be there every step of the way to ensure your home is restored to its original condition.

Stay safe until the storm has passed.

As tempting as it is to remain close to your belongings, it’s important to keep your family in a safe area away from the storm until it is gone. If all levels of your home are flooded and permit unhealthy living conditions, you should find another place to stay. Keep an eye out for Houston’s news stations, as they typically provide frequent updates on hurricane situations.

Remove all valuable and personal items.

If you do need to evacuate in an emergency, make an effort to pack anything that is valuable or personal. Try to keep things that cannot be replaced, but remember that you can’t take everything. Make a list of items to take with you in case of an emergency so that you are prepared in the event that one happens. It’s also advisable to pack ahead of time to save yourself time if you need to leave in a hurry.
