Storm Wind Damage
Cyclone damage insurance claims can be messy. It’s easy to get confused over what is and is not covered. Today, we’re highlighting the effective techniques you can use to manage your typhoon damage insurance claim– and maximize your claim settlement from the insurer.
Will my homeowners insurance cover my thunderstorm damage?
Some typhoon damage is covered by a regular HO insurance policy, while other damage is not covered.
Normally, anybody who resides in a hurricane-prone area will be required to buy supplementary tropical cyclone insurance to cover cyclone damage. Those who live near the coast of the United States, for instance, may not be automatically covered for typhoon damage under their typical home insurance policy.
Furthermore, the type of damage and how that damage was caused also impacts whether it’s covered. Many home insurance coverage cover wind damage, for instance, however not all policies cover flood damage. Hurricanes can bring both high winds and flood surges, which is one reason that typhoon damage insurance claims are tricky.
Whether you are covered for typhoon damage or not depends on:
The type of damage
How the damage was caused (flooding damage, wind damage, and so on). The type of homeowner protection you bought regular home insurance or a specific typhoon insurance policy).
Where you live.
Based on all of these aspects, your typhoon damage may or may not be covered. Read your home insurance policy to confirm that you have typhoon protection.
