THE BIA CORNER
Your Property from Wind Damage
list of damaged or lost items with your
insurance company. Generally, a record
of your assets can help expedite
your claim. There are several different
ways to keep a list of all your belongings.
You can create a visual list with
photos, a written list on paper, or
digitally. Make sure you keep copies
of your photos or documents in a safe
space, such as a water-tight container
or fire safe. If your list is digitized,
keep lists stored securely online or on
a flash drive in the same safe as your
other documentation.
Review Your Insurance Policies.
Take time to review your insurance
policies to ensure you're covered for
losses incurred by a natural disaster
or severe storm. Damage caused by
flooding and hurricanes is generally
not covered by your regular homeowner's
policy but can be purchased
separately. Talk to your insurance
company about changes or upgrades
to your policy and make sure all your
information on file is up to date.
Reinforce Windows and Doors. High
winds can enter your home through
windows, cracks, entry doors, and
garage doors. When wind funnels
through your house, the force tends to
push upward and could lift the roof,
allowing heavy rains to damage the
interior of your home.
It is essential to seal your windows
and doors as tightly as possible.
You can purchase and install unique
storm shutters to cover your windows.
Don't forget about your garage door.
Home improvement stores sell hardware
that can help reinforce the door.
Secure all
Objects Outside
of Your
Home. Items
around your
home can
take flight during
a storm.
Remove all
dead and dying
limbs from your trees, and secure
lawn furniture, trashcans, flowerpots,
and other yard ornaments. Any items
that cannot be easily secured can be
brought inside your home. Fences or
sheds should be firmly attached to the
ground and have a solid foundation.
