‘Wind Driven Rain’… that’s how.
Did you know that your insurance policy may not cover water damage from ‘Wind Driven Rain’ because it may be from a ‘Named Storm’? (Think Irma, or Dorian). If rain enters a home or business during a Hurricane event the damage to the interior of the dwelling is not covered. It would be covered under a separate policy which is ‘Wind’ coverage.
What damage can ‘Wind Driven Rain’ cause to the inside of your home?
- Water damage to your floor
- Water that has seeped in behind your walls and is now creating a moldy environment that you can’t see
- Water touches your electrical cords behind the walls, or the outlet below the window
- Windows are blown out
- Furniture is soaked
- Appliances are ruined
- The list goes on…
These issues can create a very large repair bill for you, unless you have the right coverage before the wind blows!
