How to Improve Your Chance for a Successful Property Claim
One of the best ways to improve your chance for a successful claim is to know exactly what your property insurance does and does not cover. Typically, your homeowner’s insurance will cover:
- Torn, missing, or damaged roof tiles or shingles;
- Damaged or lost vinyl siding;
- Damaged, twisted, or missing gutters and rain spouts;
- Tree damage to exterior walls or roof;
- Broken or damaged windows; or
- Water damage to home interior due to the storm creating an opening to the roof, windows, or exterior walls.
Your specific policy may also cover temporary shelter (such as a hotel room or materials used to protect your home from further damage. Many policies require property owners to remediate damage whenever it is safe to do so.

Hurricanes Are Life-Threatening Natural Disasters
Florida is famous for its sunshine and thousands of miles of white sandy beaches, but it is also known for the hurricanes that have ravaged it throughout history. The worst, according to AccuWeather, was the Okeechobee Hurricane in 1928, a Category 4 storm that claimed more than 2,500 lives and destroyed many homes and farms.
All categories of hurricanes have the potential to be life-threatening. Your property and personal belongings can be replaced.
