Severe Weather Damage Scenarios

Big storms can be furious and frightening, and safety has to be your first priority. If your neighborhood has seen major problems, play it safe. If you think your home has been structurally damaged or if flood risk remains, don’t go inside. Spending a few nights elsewhere is a small price to pay.

After the danger has passed, restoration and repair should be your top priority. Below, learn about how different kinds of storms can cause damage.

Storm Damage Insurance

The amount you get from your home or business insurer depends on policy specifics, the severity of harm to your property, your property’s condition and more.

The more quickly you, the more likely you are to get the compensation you need. You could miss out if you don’t act right away.

Storm Damage Scenarios

  • Winter Storms: This can cause collapsed roofs, break trees and electric systems, and cause other harm.
  • Hail Damage: Severe hail can cause shingle and siding damage, and that can mean roof leaks and compounding damage.
  • Damage from Flooding: Floods can get into your building’s foundation, ruin structures and possessions inside, lead to mold proliferation and more.
  • Damage from Wind Storms: This can rip off siding, shingles and even whole roofs, break windows, destroy trees and landscaping and electricity hookups and cause other problems.
  • Tornado and Hurricane Damage: Circular winds can cause serious damage to all parts of your property, including catastrophic damage to roofs, windows, siding and landscaping.
