A Tree Fell on My House – Now What?

Depending on where you live, the peak of hurricane season can lay waste to a ton of damage. The arrival of torrential rain, strong gusty winds, and hurricane-like conditions can be detrimental to your home or property. According to the National Storm Damage Center, fallen trees and debris account for more than $1 billion in property damage annually.

 

We here at Big Timber Tree Service, LLC have helped clean up properties following any big storms. Our storm cleanup and tree trimming services in Camden County have helped us stand out from the competition for decades.

 

If a tree falls on your roof, remain calm and follow these few steps to ensure your safety, as well as your home:

 

Evacuate Immediately

If you have a clear path out of your house, we recommend leaving the house immediately. If you find yourself on the second or third floor and a tree or branch is blocking your exit, do not try to move the tree to make space. Find a safer path or wait for the first responders to show up.

 

Call Emergency Services

Even if you’re able to get out of your home without a problem, it’s important to call emergency services as soon as possible. Any downed wires or unstable trees are going to need to be addressed quickly and effectively. Don’t leave the scene until police or fire arrive unless you are injured.

 

Inform Your Insurance Provider

Regardless of whether a tree from your neighbor’s property lands on your house or vice versa, it’s important that you contact your insurance provider as soon as the accident happens. Forgetting to take the proper action or missing deadlines can be the difference between how much money you may have to pay out of pocket.

 

Give Us a Call

The final step is to give us a call at Big Timber Tree Service, LLC. We’re able to help clean up the damage and help get your life back to normal as soon as possible.
