    Storms Are Coming

    Spring in Texas is almost here. Bluebonnets. Baseball. Bad weather. Living in Texas guarantees major storms, with hail and high winds able to wreak havoc on many homes. Damage to your home can be both heartbreaking and costly. You may be wondering if you should file a claim for damage that seems minor, especially if the repairs are not urgent. In this blog post, we'll help you decide what's best for you and your family. After major damage from a storm, it is critical to file your claim in order to begin repairs as soon as possible.


    What's Your Damage?

    What if the damage is not major, but you still need repairs? Will your claim get approval from your insurance carrier?

It’s an unwelcome surprise when an unpaid claim results in increased rates and decreased ability to get coverage.
