Hurricane Sandy Wind Damage Insurance Claim

The high force winds of a hurricane like Sandy can destroy even the most well constructed buildings.  Flying debris — including signs, outdoor furniture, tree limbs and any other items capable of being swept away by high winds – can be responsible for breaking windows, damaging siding, disabling air conditioning and HVAC systems; can cause extensive property damage and cleanup; and can damage or ruin automobiles, boats, RVs and other vehicles.  Wind can also damage these items:

  • Fences
  • Decks, patios and outdoor furniture and appliances
  • Trees
  • Shrubs
  • Gardens
  • Solar panels
  • Outdoor buildings, such as sheds, garages, pergolas, gazebos, boathouses and workshops.

Even if you’ve done your best to prepare for a storm by boarding up windows, removing objects from your yard, and taking additional precautions to keep damage to a minimum, the sheer force of a storm can never be predicted with complete accuracy.

Most homeowner’s insurance policies compensate policyholders for wind damage.  However, make sure to read your policy carefully to see whether deductibles, caps or exclusions apply.
