Wind Damage Insurance Claims Public Adjuster in Florida
According to the Insurance Information Institute, an average of 1,000 tornadoes per year are reported throughout the country. Between 1997 and 2016, tornadoes caused 39.9% of all catastrophic losses for insured policyholders.
As a Floridian, you already get your fair share of hurricanes, heavy winds and rainstorms. There are tornado watches throughout the state quite frequently too. All it takes is for a single tornado to touch down on your property, and it could cause thousands of dollars in damages. If the winds are not the result of a hurricane, then it would fall under the category of wind, storm, and tornado damage.
One-fourth of Florida homeowners file wind, storm, or tornado damage claims each year. That is approximately 1 out of every 4 homeowners, which is actually a significant percentage. The damage caused by a wind storm usually falls upon the exterior siding or roof. Either the force of the winds themselves will cause damage, or large pieces of debris will get blown around and strike areas of the house.
Here is a general list of the type of damages to expect:
- Shingles or other pieces of your roof get blown off
- Siding damage
- Gutter damage
- Broken windows
- Homes no longer on their foundation completely
- Severe mobile home damage
- Door damage
- Falling trees onto your property that cause damage
Windstorms can cause a lot of damage. You should take the proper steps to prepare for a windstorm before it occurs. Check your local weather reports regularly and listen to the advice given by your local meteorologist. If they’re warning you of a potential threat coming your way, then you should adhere to their advice.
The Next Step
When a windstorm or tornado is likely going to approach your area, it is best if you remove all furniture and objects from the exterior of your property and bring them inside. This might include lawn chairs, grills, swimming gear, hoses, gardening tools, and other outdoor furniture and equipment. To shield your windows from the heavy winds, you can nail plywood over them.
After the storm has passed, you’ll want to assess all the wind damage and water damage. Don’t forget that wind storms do bring a lot of rain and possible flooding too. Take note of the damage caused by writing it down and taking photographs of it. This will serve as evidence of the damage after you file a claim with your insurance company.
However, it would be wise to have a public adjuster file the claim for you. Insurance companies are notorious for either denying storm damage claims or paying a small settlement which doesn’t even cover the value of the damage. But if you hire ProFloridian Public Adjuster to represent you in your claim, we’ll assign a public adjuster to your case who can work with your insurance company in order to maximize your settlement.
We’ll comb every inch of your property to look for signs of damage. From the smallest cracks to the biggest gaps in your wind damaged structure, we’ll make sure there is a record of everything. You can just relax and let us handle all the tough negotiating and dealings with your insurance company. We’ve got your back!
