Hurricane Damage Public Adjuster
As a Florida property owner, it’s vital to have hurricane coverage on your insurance policy. Over the last four years, hurricanes have been a common occurrence in the southeast United States. Florida has experienced at least two direct hits from hurricanes within those four years. Each time, the results were devastating for the state’s property owners and business owners.
Before a hurricane strikes your property, it’s important that you know how to prepare for it and deal with the aftermath. Obviously, you have no power over which direction the hurricane will go. But you can try to protect your property by boarding up windows and removing loose objects from the lawn. Your insurance company will want to know you took these basic precautionary steps before the hurricane arrived. It will increase your chances of getting your hurricane claim approved.
It’s not difficult to prove that a hurricane struck your house. Since hurricanes are reported on every major television station, there won’t be any dispute about the existence of the hurricane. However, your insurance company will investigate whether the damage you’re reporting was caused by the hurricane or not. Some people who have preexisting damage to their property will try to claim it was caused by a hurricane. Don’t attempt to do this, because the claim adjuster will discover the truth.
A few missing shingles on your roof won’t be considered hurricane damage. True hurricane damage may cause the following problems:
- Electrical damage
- Roof damage
- Drywall damage
- Siding damage
- Business loss of income (for commercial policyholders)
Hurricane damage is easily noticeable when it is investigated. As long as you remain honest about the damage, then no one will question it.
