What To Do If You Suspect Hurricane Ian Wind Damage
Start by developing a plan, taking action and documenting your work:
- Immediately photograph any damages to your property. If you were able to prepare your home by taking photos, gather “before and after” photos.
- Document and address any damages to your property. Keep an eye out for potential sources for further damage as a result of wind hitting your property. If temporary repairs would limit further damages, those repairs should be handled immediately to mitigate damages and avoid policy defenses.
- File your claim quickly and keep track of the name and contact information of the insurance adjusters assigned to your claim.
- Consider hiring a public adjuster or engineer to review any windstorm damage. It is recommended you obtain a second opinion, as a public adjuster’s estimate may differ from the independent adjuster. An outside opinion could raise the value of your claim.
