Get through the storm, and then examine the aftermath. Read on for more.

Insurance Payouts

The most severe damage from the majority of storms is covered under home and business insurance policies, but the specifics change. What you must pay depends on your premiums and deductibles, the structure, the extent of your damage, the value of surrounding property and much more.

Most severe weather events are considered acts of God, which means that your insurer can’t single you out. But not filing claims early can cause problems, and neighborhood rates go up anyway following severe storms. That means you should always file claims right away so you don’t end up paying more in the future without receiving the benefits now.

Storms that cause property damage may lead to mold proliferation and more.

  • Winter Storms: This can cause collapsed roofs, lead to broken trees and electricity poles, and cause other harm.
  • Hail Storm Damage: Major hail storms can cause shingle and siding damage, and that can mean roof leaks and compounding structural damage.
  • Damage from Flooding: Flood water can get into your building’s foundation, ruin structures and possessions inside, lead to mold proliferation and more.
  • Damage from Wind Storms: This can damage structures, lead to broken windows, destroy trees and landscaping and electric systems and cause additional damage.
  • Tropical Storm and Tornado Damage: Circular winds can cause serious damage to all parts of your property, such as catastrophic damage to roofs, windows, siding and landscaping.
