Be Ready for the Storm

It is spring time, which in North Texas means thunderstorms and hail. While we can’t completely stop hail from damaging your property, you can potentially reduce the damage that a storm might cause.

Here are some tips on handling what mother nature will certainly throw at us
this year.

Be Proactive

  • Have your roof inspected. Repairing your roof as problems are found will make your roof less susceptible to damage and large claims. Roofing companies will often offer free roof inspections to build a relationship with you. ContactThe Reese Agency at 940-387-2181 to get recommendations of reputable businesses.
  • Know your deductible! If the repairs are below your deductible amount, do not file a claim. This will help you avoid future rate increases.
  • Keep an eye on the weather. If strong storms are approaching move your vehicles to shelter as well as anything else that can be damaged by hail or wind such as patio furniture.

What to do after a storm

  • Determine if there is significant enough damage to meet your home or auto deductible. If you have a question call us.
  • Make a list of damages. Inspect your car from all angles. Look over your siding, gutters, fence, and air conditioning units. Do not climb on your roof. Leave that to the professionals!
  • Contact the claims hotline number listed in your policy or online. They will guide you through the process of filing a claim.
  • Make sure that your roofing or repair company is local, licensed, bonded, and insured. If you have any questions call The Reese Agency and we will give you a list of companies that you can trust to do your home or auto repairs.
