Wind Damage Resources

weather.JPGGovernor Herbert recently mobilized the Utah National Guard and other state agencies to assist residents and businesses in the clean up from the hurricane-like winds experienced in Davis County and to prepare for another possible storm. If your home or business experienced wind damage, there are a number of resources from Utah state agencies that you should know about.

The Utah Insurance Department has information on what to do if there is damage to your property, including documenting the damage, finding a reputable contractor to do repairs, and reporting a claim.

The Utah Department of Commerce reminds consumers to be aware of scams by fake contractors and companies preying on people whose property was damaged in the recent storm. Remember to always ask to see a copy of the contractor's license and get a written contract.

You should also check with your city and county for information on clean-up efforts. For example, Farmington has information about green waste clean-up here and Layton has provided information about fraud and clean-up efforts on their website.
