Storm Wind Damage
Tropical cyclone damage insurance claims can be messy. It’s easy to get confused over what is and is not covered. Today, we’re highlighting the effective methods you can use to manage your tropical storm damage insurance claim– and optimize your claim payment from the insurance company.
Will my homeowners insurance cover my hurricane damage?
Some tropical storm damage is covered by a standard Business Owners Policy (BOP) insurance policy, while other damage is not covered.
Usually, anyone who resides in a hurricane-prone location will need to pay for additional hurricane insurance to cover tropical cyclone damage. Those who live near the coast of the United States, for instance, may not be automatically covered for tropical storm damage under their normal house insurance policy.
In addition, the type of damage and how that damage was triggered also affects whether it’s covered. Many house insurance policies cover wind damage, for instance, but not all policies cover flood damage. Hurricanes can bring both high winds and flood surges, which is one reason why tropical storm damage insurance claims are tricky.
Whether you are covered for tropical storm damage or not depends upon:
The type of damage
How the damage was triggered (flooding damage, wind damage, and so on). The type of property owner coverage you bought regular house insurance or a specific tropical storm insurance policy).
Where you live.
Based on all of these factors, your tropical storm damage may or may not be covered. Read your house insurance policy to verify that you have tropical storm coverage.
