Understanding the Far-Reaching Effects of Storm Damage

When it comes to evaluating the damage to your home or business after a disaster, it’s important to address your roofing, gutters, and siding as a complex and interconnected system that protects your home. Often, damage to one area can lead to further complications in the rest of the system. For example, damage to your roof may also cause leaking behind siding, which can be hard to spot without experience. Having  an experienced, reliable contractor on hand to evaluate the damage thoroughly can help ensure your insurance company approves the full scope of work needed to get your home or commercial property back in tip-top shape.

Get Support Submitting and Maximizing Your Claim the Right Way

When disaster strikes, it’s hard to know what your next steps are. It can feel overwhelming and frustrating trying to navigate who to work with to ensure your repairs are taken seriously. From random companies knocking on your door after hail to basic internet searches, it’s hard to know who to trust. That’s why we’ve broken down the insurance claim and repair process into easy and transparent steps. Now you can have the confidence to move forward with the repairs you need to not only get back to normal, but to make the most of a bad situation and optimize your home or commercial property to meet your needs.

Filing Your Claim

Filing Your Claim

After damage occurs, reach out to your insurance carrier, they will assign you a claim number and an insurance adjuster to inspect the damage. You may be tempted by companies visiting your home after a weather event to jump right in, but beware! These contracting companies generally follow storms and use a lot of quick language to talk you into a cash contract and don’t provide warranty or support after the job is done. Instead, take a moment, call your insurance agent, and schedule that assessment.

Contractor Support

Get Contractor Support for the Assessment

If possible, find a contractor who can be on-site during the insurance adjustor’s assessment to verify the adjuster is accurately noting all damage and required work. At Big Fish, we have dedicated disaster recovery teams who are well-versed in working with adjustors to ensure they cover the full extent of repairs you need.


Review the Adjustment Summary and Estimate of Work with Your Contractor

Once you’ve received the official assessment report, it’s important you meet with your contractor right away to verify the scope of work for your repairs. At Big Fish, this is where we sit down with you and go over all the repair work needed, line-by-line, to make sure you are confident in our project together. Once you approve, we’ll sign a contingency agreement, which will allow Big Fish to continue working with your insurance provider on your behalf during the claim and repair process.


Optimizing Your Claim

Not all contractors do this, but at Big Fish, we believe it’s our responsibility to help you make the most of a difficult situation. Once your insurance provider agrees to the total scope of work, our team will work with you to select the very best materials and options to optimize your claim.

Make The Most

Make the Most of Your Situation

When disaster strikes, we can help you turn a bad situation into an opportunity to further customize your home or commercial property to meet your needs. . Many homeowners will look at the repairs needed and think “why not take care of these other projects while we’re at it.” If this is the case, and you want to add on additional projects, like a new deck or updated windows or any other remodeling, we’ll work on a special contract with a separate cash bid for these projects so we can complete all work at once.


Approval and On-Site Work

Once approved by insurance, your contractor should immediately schedule out your repairs. The urgency of your start time is dependent on the extent of your damage to ensure all clients affected by storms have livable conditions to stay safe. At Big Fish, we not only stay with you through the claims adjustment process, work with insurance on your behalf, and take care of your repairs, we also offer support after the work is complete!


Payment Collection

Once all work is completed, Big Fish will collect the project payment. Final payment is not released until all work is completed.
