Sure – your insurance will be who pays for the repairs to your home, so at some point they will need to be made aware of the situation and you will need to file a claim.
REMEMBER – Texas State Law allows you to choose the restoration company you prefer.Your insurance may have specific companies that they prefer to work with and are suggested because they want to protect their own interests.Most likely there will be some restoration companies at the scene looking to secure your business. Use caution when hiring one of these companies, taking the time to check them out and making sure you have a comfort level with the company representative.
Once you have decided on a company, they can secure your home by boarding up broken windows, tarping the roof or securing the front door.
This is where you will want to hire an experienced restoration company that you can trust that will take care of you. The goal is to protect your investment and belongings, you want a company where you and your needs are priority.
