Storm Damage Insurance
Serious damage from the majority of storms is covered under home and business insurance policies, but the details are different. What you must pay depends on your premiums and deductibles, the structure, the extent of your damage, the value of surrounding property and much more.
The sooner you file claims, the more likely you are to get the money you need. You could get short shrift if you don’t act quickly.
Storm Damage Scenarios
- Winter Storms: This can cause collapsed roofs, lead to broken trees and electricity poles, and much more.
- Hail Damage: Severe hail can bend and crack shingles and siding, causing hidden leaks and compounding damage.
- Water Damage: Water from floods can ruin foundations, ruin drywall, carpet and framing, lead to mold problems and cause other problems.
- Wind Damage: This can harm structures, destroy glass, wreak havoc on trees and power grids and more.
- Hurricane and Tornado Damage: Circular winds can cause serious damage to all parts of your property, such as catastrophic damage to siding, roofs, landscaping and more.
