TecMark Inc., whose software tracks weather activity at an individual street level of detail, contacts property owners and restoration contractors immediately after a storm hits an area.

“Within 20 minutes after a storm, we contact property owners by telephone and email to ask if they need services, then direct them to the website of the TecMark-affiliated contractor,” Founder Phil Butler said. “Property owners can see the contractor’s credentials and accreditations at the site, and then receive a local phone number to contact the contractor for immediate and long-term needs.”

Butler said restoration contractors are organized into five zones of concentric circles based on their proximity to Indiana and the amount of severe weather their area receives.
