Appleseed Insurance can offer the best insurance for storm damage protection in Windsor CT. Devastating electrical storms with high winds, tornado threats, hurricanes and more can topple trees and damage homes. In Connecticut, we never know what to expect. This year alone we have been threatened with severe storms. When a hurricane or tornado strikes, many homeowners find out that damages their homes sustain are not covered by their homeowner’s insurance. Appleseed Insurance can inspect your existing homeowner’s policy to explain what is covered and what is not covered. Know the basics of what storm damage is covered before it is too late. We have been advised that the hurricane season will last through December this year. Take measures toward storm damage protection this season. Appleseed Insurance will be happy to explain your homeowner’s insurance options.
Just a reminder that with the right policy from Appleseed Insurance, storm damage will not be one of your worries. We expect very high winds and a potential for water damage and roof failure. In general, your existing policy will cover high winds ripping roof shingles off resulting in water penetration. Basement flooding, however, is not covered. For that you will need a Flood Insurance policy. Hurricane damage to your boat, car, or RV will require comprehensive insurance.
There are ways to prepare for a bad storm. Make sure that your roof is in top condition, because the rooftop is your home’s defense from the elements. Check your attic ventilation, because large quantities of water can get blown inside the vents when winds reach up to 90 miles per hour. Windows and doors, shuttering the windows is an excellent defense against breaking glass. Also check your surroundings. Secure or put loose items away in your yard, like lawn furniture, recycle bins, toys, tools and bicycles. This includes metal garbage can lids, which can become airborne in a storm. No one wants to think about suffering a loss, but in the event that Connecticut does have a nasty hurricane season, Appleseed Insurance can find a policy that will protect you.
