You have been paying them monthly premiums for their protection. Why would they try to short change you now? Why should they get away with it?

Damaged Caused by Tropical Storms

A dishonest insurance provider may deny a storm damage claim simply because a storm cell never magnified into a hurricane. While it is true that a hurricane is far more likely to cause catastrophic damage, it is not true that a storm cannot ruin properties as well. Just one day of heavy rainfall and winds can wreck the average home, leading to thousands in damage that should not be repaired at the expense of the homeowners’ insurance policy holder.

After a tropical storm, your home could experience the following types of damage:

  • Flood damage to cellars and lower floors
  • Roof and tiling damage from balls of hail
  • Siding and paneling damage from gale force winds
  • Deck and porch damage from various sources
  • Window damage from tossed debris
