Make sure you know your insurance policy number -- and, if possible, where a copy of your policy is. If you haven't read your policy, this is a very good time to review it. "Reading a policy isn't exciting, but it's very important," says John Egan, editor of InsuranceQuotes.com. Most policies will cover wind damage, and they will cover water damage if a tree crashes into your roof or your cross or steeple is blown away.
"It's crucial that you be with the adjuster when he surveys the storm damage", Egan says. Keep a notebook and write down everything he says, as well as the name of everyone you talk to at the insurance company. "Point out damage, take notes of what's happening and what the adjuster says and does," Egan says. "No one else will do that for you."
Be wary of contractors who go door-to-door and ask for an upfront fee to fix storm damage, Hartwig says. Too often, they're scamsters who will take your money and scram.
