When it comes to natural disasters and home damage, lightning isn’t always a likely suspect. Most often, we attribute home damage to something more menacing like hurricanes, fires, and forceful winds. But lightning damage can pose a serious risk to your property, and home damage from a lightning strike can cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars in repair costs.
Has your home near Denver experienced lightning damage? Here’s what to do next.
When lightning strikes your home, the most important thing is to keep you and your family safe. Evacuate the home and call 911 as soon as possible. In most cases, the fire department will respond to the call and inspect your property for any electrical damage.
While the inspection is taking place, make sure to consider (and make a list!) of all the wired electronics in your household. Don’t immediately throw anything out that was damaged in the storm—you may need to file a claim and show proof of damage.
If your home needs lightning damage repair, consider a restoration company before you call your insurance provider. Restoration companies can give you quotes based on services needs that you can share with your insurance—plus, this gives you the opportunity to choose a company that’s great at home and lightning damage restoration. Have a list ready of a few restoration companies in the area to share with your insurance agent.
In almost all cases, home insurance policies cover lightning-related damage. If you don’t know your insurance policy by heart (don’t worry, most people don’t!), your company can provide you with a copy during this call. If damage has occurred, your insurance company may recommend restoration companies to help restore your home. Remember that you, often, have a right to choose your own restoration service—just ask your specific provider before you move forward!

We had 970 do just about everything- drywall, paint, trim, two stories worth of flooring, bathroom tile black splash, caulking, etc, I cannot speak highly enough of their work ethic and quality. There is not one error in the entirety of their work, and I truly couldn’t be happier working with them. They were flexible when I had unexpected medical situation that disrupted my schedule and they worked with our insurance. 5+ stars!!!
