The first thing you want to do before anything else is to take a quick walk around the entire property to inspect any damage that has occurred due to a storm in Phoenix.

This is the assessment we suggest to complete:
- Examine the outside of the entire house. Look for any damage done to the walls, windows, roof, gutters, doors or any large and very important structural elements of the house.
- Examine the property such as the front yard, back yard, side yard, any garages, storage areas and outdoor equipment. Inspect them and take pictures of any damage that has happened to those areas due to the storm.
- Look for any damage to outside utilities such as power lines, gas lines, water supply or anything else that supplies power or fuel to the house. Read more
