Disaster/storm response — what to expect and FAQs

How soon can Woodard be on scene?

With consideration given to the severity of your damage, our Dispatch department will send a crew to your house as quickly as possible. We will call you in advance to let you know we’re on the way.

Will you work with my insurance?

Yes, Woodard will file a claim with your insurance and bill them directly for your disaster restoration services.

What damage is covered by home insurance?

Please contact your insurance provider for the coverage details of your policy.

Should I go through insurance?

If the loss is covered under your insurance policy, then yes. However, if the cost for mitigation and repair is less than your deductible, it may be more cost-effective to skip the claim process and pay out of pocket.

What is the process after a claim is filed?

The homeowner files the claim with their insurance carrier and provides the claim number and adjuster name to the on-site Woodard crew. Our project manager works directly with you and your insurance adjuster to settle the claim. Together we will collect insurance proceeds and any out-of-pocket expenses you may have.
