On the list of things that Florida is known for, you don’t have to go very far to get to hurricanes and deal with storm damage. Hurricane season is always a reminder of how important it is to have a safe roof over our heads. However, it’s not the only cause of storm damage.
Florida has its fair share of hailstorms, tornados and other storms with strong winds.
These storms can damage your roof in a variety of ways. Due to the frequency of such storms in Florida, storm damage is typically covered by homeowners insurance.
Water and Hail Damage
Water can severely damage your roof. In Florida, it is best to look at your homeowners insurance policy to check for flood damage. Most water damage is covered if it is from sudden internal issues like your water heater rupturing. However, damage from storms isn’t always insured. If you find that your policy doesn’t include flood insurance, you might want to talk to your insurance agent to add it to your policy before hurricane season.
Ice and hail are typically covered by your homeowners insurance, but take a look at the policy to be sure.
If your home or location is struck by lightning, the damage is typically covered by homeowners insurance. Typical damage like smoke and fire damage is covered, but you may want to check your policy for other types of damages including power surges that may have damaged your personal electronics or appliances. As always talk to your agent for full coverage details.
Homeowners insurance typically covers wind damage. Typical wind damage covered is when the wind rips off your shingles or even if wind-driven rain has gotten inside of your home. Check your policy if it covers fallen trees that damage your home due to wind damage.

"Shane and the team were great to work with. Everything was handled quickly and professionally. They were able to get me scheduled during a holiday week. The roof on my house and my shed were replaced in a day and a half. They did a great job cleaning up afterward. My new roof looks great and now I don't mind the rain!"
