Even after you have taken all necessary precautions to protect your home and lawn, you can't control everything. In many cases, we see older trees that have been uprooted and launched on top of cars or even branches that have impaled walls and gone through windows. This can be very upsetting and terrifying. Remember to stay calm and avoid areas with downed power lines or where you see obvious sparks.
Be sure the scene is safe before leaving your safe place of cover and assessing the damage. When surveying your damage, don't move anything! Take photos and record as much detail as you possibly can. This is important when it comes to filing your insurance claim. Be sure your photos have time and date stamps on them.
Next you will want to file your insurance claim and begin shopping around for a company that specializes in storm damage removal and repair. Plano Tree Care has years of experience in assisting homeowners and businesses around the DFW metroplex after storms have wreaked havoc on their facilities.
