If you live in Boca Raton or anywhere in South Florida, then you know what it’s like to hunker down in a shelter or a small bathroom waiting out a hurricane or a tropical storm with heavy rain and gale force winds. Typically, after a devastating storm, flooding is a major concern. But there are ways to ensure that your home is protected before a storm hits. Although no one can predict what devastation a storm will leave in its wake, there are a few ways that you can secure your home before one hits. First, you’ll want to check your homeowner’s policy to see what your water damage coverage is. To help with water damage in Boca Raton, you might consider hiring a private adjuster to help you understand your coverage and the confusing language that often plagues property insurance agreements. ClaimPros is a great choice. Our licensed, professional adjusters have years of experience dealing with insurance companies, and we know how to get you the best monetary settlement if you suffer any damage or loss to your Boca Raton home after a storm.
Is your home in a flood zone? If so, you are required by FEMA to purchase separate flood insurance because that is not normally covered on your homeowner’s policy. If you are a first-time homeowner in South Florida, you may not know that flooding is considered separate from water damage, that’s why a second policy is needed. Even if you’re not in a flood zone, it’s a great idea to have the coverage just in case, because it’s relatively inexpensive. A private claims adjuster like ClaimPros can help you make sense of your homeowner and flood insurance policies in Boca Raton.
It’s also a great idea to have your roof inspected BEFORE the threat of a storm. Loose flying tiles can act as catapults in a storm, Also, small holes that have gone undetected might give way and leave you with a messy, wet, and moldy situation inside your home. South Florida roofs are susceptible to wear from sun, rain, and storm exposure over time. That’s why your insurance company might claim a preexisting condition if you file a claim for damages. A call to ClaimPros is the fastest way to help sort that out.
