Preparing for storm water damage
Living in San Diego means very few of us worry or stress about preparing for storms. With a beautiful year-round climate, storms are one of the last things that San Diegans think about.
However, each winter, we receive hundreds of calls from concerned homeowners that heavy rainfall or other storm damage has affected their property, and they're unsure what to do next. They often have questions like, "Is this going to be covered by my homeowners insurance?" "Is this going to be expensive?" etc.
The first answer is, you probably won't get any storm damage covered by your typical homeowners insurance policy, unless you've specifically bought and paid for it.
The second is - damage can cost you anywhere from a few hundred dollars up to thousands, it all depends on the severity of the damage.
Take a few moments this fall to consider the following, and see what you can do to better prepare in case of the event of unexpected water damage.
Are your gutters working and clear from any blockages?
Is your roof in good shape and free from any damage?
Are doors and windows properly sealed?
