FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
+ HOW FAST CAN COTTON RESPOND TO STORM OR WIND DAMAGE AT A COMMERCIAL PROPERTY?
Cotton is available 24/7 and is always ready to respond with crews and pre-loaded fleets. As soon as your call or request comes through, a Cotton Representative will reach out to begin the assessment. Once they have confirmed the details, the right crews and equipment will be sent to begin working on your business.
+ IF MY COMMERCIAL PROPERTY NEEDS STORM DAMAGE REPAIR, SHOULD I CALL MY INSURANCE FIRST?
Cotton recommends getting a professional restoration contractor on site as fast as possible to board up your property. Your insurance company wants you to be proactive when it comes to restoring your commercial property and delaying your call to a professional restoration contractor can cause more damage.
+ HOW LONG DOES THE STORM RECOVERY PROCESS TAKE AFTER AN EMERGENCY?
The recovery timeline varies depending on the severity and category of the storm damages. For example, if, in addition to roof repairs, your building also needs water damage mitigation, the process could require additional days to dry your structure and contents properly. Your Cotton Representative will provide an accurate timeline after completing an assessment of the damage.
