Hurricane season is in full swing, and we’ve already had over 10 named storms in the Atlantic this year. When a hurricane is headed your way (and they always are in Florida) it’s important to prepare for possible roof damage. Follow these tips to minimize damage and get a head start on repairs to your roof during a hurricane:
Check your insurance policy
Before a storm hits, discover how much insurance coverage you have for hurricane damage. If you don’t understand your policy documents, call your insurance agent right away and they should be able to explain everything to you. One of the most important pieces of information to gather is your deductible for storm damage since that’s the amount that you will have to pay out of pocket before your insurance coverage picks up the tab.
