Some facts about storm damage claims with insurance agencies:
ï Water damage from water that comes down without hitting the ground first, such as rain damage to your roof, provided the rain didn’t further damage building materials that were only damaged by the rain due to neglect of the building materials. For example rain damage to a roof in good repair will generally be covered, but a roof that should have been replaced 7 years ago that has been damaged by recent rain would likely not be covered.
Hail damage is an insurable loss. Your carrier is required to cover all hail damage, provided you meet any deductible that may be required.
Wind damage is an insurable loss. It is the legal obligation of your insurance agency to cover the costs of repair to restore your property to the condition it was prior to the loss from wind damage.
Insurance policy rates generally will not increase if you file an insurance claim for hail or wind damage or storm damage.
You need to file your claim in a timely manner, delay can result in your claim being denied. Most insurance companies have a one year limitation to file a claim. It helps to document any and all storm damage with photos.
