One of the most aesthetically pleasing aspects of a historic home is its interior woodwork. For this reason, homeowners may falsely assume that insert windows are a better option than full frame window replacement because it will not disturb the home’s preexisting woodwork. It’s important to note that the home’s woodwork can be matched. Foregoing full frame window replacement sacrifices the ability to a contractor to inspect the rough opening and make upgrades that can have a dramatic positive impact on the home’s energy efficiency. This is because there have been significant updates to window installation techniques over the past century.
The process of navigating an insurance claim after hail damage can be daunting for a homeowner. However, partnering with a reputable contractor can make the process stress-free. They can determine if a roof has damage or if it is in disrepair due to old age. Contractors that regularly work with hail damage also understand that hail damage must be repaired within two years to be eligible for an insurance claim and will work to adhere to those timelines. When selecting insurance companies, it’s in your best interests to have a local agent that you feel comfortable working with. Smaller companies can be easier to work with because they rely heavily on exemplary customer service and word of mouth to expand their client base. Locally owned insurance companies also tend to work with adjusters from the area that have a good working knowledge of storm damage specific to your region and how it manifests itself.
