Written by

Pipes are unfortunately going to freeze and break.

Feel free to call me first, before you report the claim, for advice on your immediate steps after the damage to your property.

Water damage can occur at any time - and often at the worst possible time.  In fact, it may not be covered under your existing property insurance policy.  If you have any of the following concerns we can expertly represent you in your insurance claim. 

Is damage from flooding excluded in my homeowner's policy?

Am I covered for roof leaks

How about damage from frozen or busted pipes? Or appliance line leaks?

For this blog about Hurricane Season preparedness, we thought it would make sense to get some business continuity tips from a real expert—a business owner who survived multiple disasters - Janice Jucker of Three Brothers Bakery.

Here are some useful business continuity tips from Janice Jucker:

1. Review your hazard and flood coverage NOW.   If you don’t have flood coverage, which is NOT covered by hazard insurance, contact the National Flood Insurance Program to purchase flood insurance.  There is a 30-day waiting period after you make the first premium payment, so just hope you don’t get hit by a flood storm before the policy is effective.

2. Make sure you have access to your insurance policy information, especially policy numbers. Keep handy phone numbers for your insurance agent and the claims department.

Last year was one of the most active Atlantic hurricane seasons on record, with six major hurricanes of Category 3 or higher. 

 Three devastating major hurricanes made landfall—Harvey in Texas, Irma in the Caribbean and the southeastern USA, and Maria in the Caribbean and Puerto Rico.

 Some affected areas are still recovering even as the start of the 2018 hurricane season for the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico approaches. Almost eight months after Hurricane Maria pummeled Puerto Rico, tens of thousands of residents are still without electricity. Hurricane season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30

 Pre-Hurricane Season

            • Prepare an emergency supply kit
            • Clean out gutters and trim trees and shrubs
            • Inspect your roof, siding, foundation and basement to identify areas to be repaired or replaced
            • Create and practice an evacuation plan
            • Reinforce garage doors – if wind blows through the garage, it can cause serious structural damage to other parts of your home
            • Consider replacing gravel or rock landscaping materials with shredded bark, since high hurricane winds could cause rocks to move around and damage your home
            • Prepare a home inventory with photos of your home and personal property

High winds are a fact of life for many property owners. With recorded wind speeds reaching upwards of 300 MPH, the damage done by severe windstorms, wind-driven hail, flying debris and tornado damage results in billions of dollars in damage every year.

To prepare your home for high winds, it is always a good idea to trim back tree branches away from the roof and large windows, as fallen limbs and broken tree branches can do a substantial amount of damage to your roof, windows and exterior.
