What is a Window Damage Assessment?

During a window damage assessment, the nature and extent of your damaged windows will be closely assessed. Afterwards, you will get a document detailing the results of the assessment and the recommended repairs.

When it comes to window damage, there is a lot any homeowner can do on their own. But when you are selling your home or filing an insurance claim, hiring a professional is necessary. They can find things that are easy to miss. Plus, having a clean bill of health will help soothe any concerns you or your buyer may have.

Filing an Insurance Claim

If you have damaged windows and need to file an insurance claim, you may be wondering what the process will look like. With Storm Guard, you will have an ally on your side, helping you through the entire process. Since a damage assessment is required for an insurance claim, our professionals will provide a thorough examination of your windows to submit to your insurance company.

Additional steps in the process of filing an insurance claim include:

Document Everything

We’ll take photos of the window damage on both the interior and exterior surfaces.

Protect The Damage

Covering or boarding up any windows that are damaged. This will keep them from getting damaged further.

Submit a Claim Immediately

Many insurance companies have a limit requiring you to file within one year of when the damage occurred; after that, you may not be able to file. Plus, the longer you wait, the more potential damage to your home.

Perform a Damage Assessment

One of our service providers will carefully assess the situation. We will then work with your insurance adjuster to make sure you get the best deal.

Types of Window Damage

The most common types of window damage come from water, wind, hail or debris, and fire.

Water Damage

Water damage will look like moisture build-up or fog between the panes of your windows. You may also see cracking or bubbling paint on your window frame and wall.

Wind Damage

Wind can lead to broken or cracked panes, dented frames, and chipped paint.

Hail & Debris

Hail and debris can shatter your windows, tear your screens, and dent the flashing above your frame.

Fire Damage

Fire damage can crack your glass and destroy the frame.
