Did your home sustain damage during Hurricane Michael? If you were fortunate, you have minimal damage left behind to deal with in the wake of the storm. However, many residents of the Florida Panhandle—particularly the Lynn Haven and Panama City areas—have found far more than superficial damages and blown down branches. If you live in those areas, you may have major repairs to make to your home, and the overwhelming clean-up may make it feel like you’ll never be able to get back to normal.
It is very important to begin the process of hurricane repairs as soon as you are able, so the damage does not worsen. However, it is also important to proceed with care, and to ensure you are able to claim the full insurance benefit you are entitled to. You may also find yourself confused or intimidated by the reports your insurance company sends you, and might not know if you have been shorted. Fortunately, A.J. Wells Roofing & Construction can help.
The First Steps of Hurricane Damage Repair
For the bulk of homeowners who discover hurricane damage to their homes, they call their homeowners insurance carrier first for information about the amount of their insurance settlement. Because many homeowners do not know what the full scope of roof and home repairs will entail, including monetary totals, they may find themselves taken advantage of by their insurance company, who, of course, will opt to pay out the lowest amount possible. The policy carrier may offer insufficient funds to fully cover the repair, or they may deny the claim outright.

We understand the process of thoroughly inspecting your roof and home for both obvious and hidden damages.

Hurricane Michael and Your Home
If you have clearly visible hurricane damage (like a missing chunk of your roof), or if you suspect your home may have sustained damages from Hurricane Michael, it is important to have the structure inspected by a knowledgeable professional. When we think of hurricane damage, we typically think of the obvious signs of destruction, but just as dangerous are the hidden damages that do not make themselves so overt. Trained, licensed contractors like A.J. Wells Roofing & Construction can locate these undiscovered damages before they can create structural weaknesses.
