With all of the wild fires happening in Texas, many people are filing claims on their homeowner’s insurance. If you find yourself in that situation, here are some things to keep in mind.
1. Contact your homeowner’s insurance company as soon as possible after the damage happens.
2. Take photographs of your loss and make a list of all damages and repairs needed.
3. If you need to stay at a hotel, keep your receipts so you can get reimbursed. Some insurance companies will reimburse restaurant expenses, too.
4. Make temporary repairs as needed to prevent further damages. You will also want to keep those receipts to turn in for reimbursement.
