There’s no denying that we have dodged a major bullet this fall in terms of coastal storms. Aside from the tropical storm that hit over the fourth of July weekend, there were hardly any really bad tropical storms or hurricanes that struck the Eastern Seaboard. Now while many of us are thankful for that nice statistic, we cannot forget that old man Winter is quickly coming our way, and who knows what type of nasty snowstorms he will bring us.
So that’s why today we would like to discuss some of the mistakes and missteps that people make in the event of a CT homeowners insurance claim. Moreover, it’s not just how you fix the damage from a storm, but it’s also how you file your claim that can have an over positive outlook for you, your family, and your home.
Here are some very useful tips that we have found that any ct homeowner should listen to in order to avoid headaches and issues with your coverage or claim process.
Don’t let the damage get worse and worse- the longer you wait to fix, chances are the worse the damage will get. Now, if nothing else is occurring from the damage (i.e. water pouring through a broken window), then you might be alright. But if there’s a major issue occurring because of the damage… FIX IT!
Don’t delay on filing your claim! One of the worse things you can do is wait! The quicker you can contact your ct homeowners insurance agent, the quicker the whole process will be, and thus you’ll be back in business.
“It won’t happen to me” mentality: If you neglect to prepare for a storm because of this mindset, then you’re just fooling yourself. Storms can strike at a moment’s notice and they can do some serious damage. Don’t be ignorant- have a safety plan in place to ensure that you, your family, and your home will be best prepared for the worst.
