Wind and Hail Damage Claims
We are your wind and hail damage claims experts, serving New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware.
Don’t’ under-estimate winter weather other than snow and ice. When a building / property is subjected to wind and hail, it can lead to a vast amount of damage in a short period of time. Securing the highest amount of money needed to repair the damaged property is very challenging to the insured when submitting a claim with their insurance company. Fully understanding the insurance claim process or working with a public adjuster can go a long way in securing funds needed to complete the repairs to your property.
Regarding wind and hail damage claims, wind and hail insurance vary based on the insurance company, the state where the property is located, and the coastal area that you live in. Many states have laws that limit insurance companies from implementing wind and hail deductibles. Most of the time, wind and hail deductibles can range anywhere from 1% to 10% property coverage limit. That means if your property was insured for $500,000 with a 5% deductible, you’d be financially responsible for the first $25,000 in wind and hail damages.
How to prepare your property for wind and hail
There are certain areas of your property that are more prone to wind and hail damage than other areas, such as your home’s siding, roof, windows, porches, doors, and landscaped areas. In order to prevent wind and hail from damaging parts of your home and property, you should take the following action:
• Trim your trees and bushes on a regular schedule
• Install a reinforced garage door
• Secure all outdoor furniture and yard accessories
• Secure plywood over your windows before a storm hits.
• Install Impact resistant storm shingles on your roof

Make Sure to File Your Wind and Hail Damage Claim Immediately
Community Public Adjusters recommends contacting a local public adjuster before you communicate with your insurance company. When directly communicating with your insurance company, make sure you provide details of the wind and/or hail damage incident, including the date of the wind and hail damage, location of the damage, list of damaged items, and general condition of your home.
