The UK experiences its share of stormy weather every year and Scotland suffers from severe gale force winds and heavy rains. If your home has been affected by storms causing damage either to the roof or the building fabric, then you can claim for repairs to be covered under your home insurance policy.

 

Heavy winds and falling trees are the main culprits but whatever the cause of damage, putting in a claim as soon as possible is advisable. If the damage is widespread however, it means other homeowners are facing a similar predicament. This may have an impact on how quickly your claim can progress.

 

Instead of trying to progress your claim directly with your insurer yourself, Insure Restore can handle the process for your from start to finish. It is important you make every effort to minimise damage during the storm itself if possible.

What To Expect In Storm Damage Repair Claim

When you contact us regarding your storm damage insurance claim repairs, we will arrange for our surveyor to visit your property. It is important that you take as many photographs as possible of the damage soon after the event and when it is safe to do so.

 

When our surveyor attends they will take more photographs and measurements so as to provide a detailed assessment of the damage, and the repairs that will be required.

 

Within 48 hours of visiting your property we will forward a comprehensive report of the storm damage to your insurer, including a detailed estimate of repair costs.

 

Your case handler or project manager will keep you updated at every step of the way. We will also provide you with contact details to get in touch with us if you have any questions about your claim progress.

 

Once your insurance company accepts the damage assessment and they have agreed to cover the costs, we will let you know when repair work can begin. We aim to work expediently to get your home or business restored so you can start a new chapter.

 

After all the storm damage repairs are complete and you are satisfied with the results, we will send the bill to your insurer. You never have to pay a penny towards the repairs. However, policies may differ as well as agreed excess may be payable.
