The feeling you get after taking a look at damage to your home after a storm is one you will not forget and will make your heart sink. So what should you do? Can you fix anything or should you call a contractor?

Step One: Assess & Photograph The Damage
Once the storm has passed, start taking pictures and capturing video.
