Avoiding Filing a Claim

No one wants to go through the disruption that comes when disaster happens, especially when it happens in the most sacred space, our home. It affects our families, daily lives and drains time and resources.

Being a homeowner gives us an undeniable sense of pride, but it also comes with a certain amount of responsibility. Maintaining your home throughout the year plays a key role in avoiding unexpected events, and it avoids small problems from turning into large ones. Those larger problems are what tempt us to file claims in areas where we probably shouldn’t.

Below are some suggestions you can follow throughout the year that can help you avoid submitting an unnecessary claim and aid in preventing your premium from increasing.

Springtime

  1. Check gutters and roof for any damage from ice or snow, make any necessary repairs.
  2. Inspect your windows for any leaks. Repair or replace weather stripping to avoid leaks.
  3. Check outdoor faucets for freeze damage or pipe issues.
  4. Service you HVAC unit and clear off debris.
  5. Test smoke detectors and replace batteries if necessary.

Hurricane Season

  1. Examine the roof, shingles, flashing, skylights, vents, and chimneys. Repair any damage.
  2. Clean out gutters to make sure rainwater and debris can flow freely throw them.
  3. Trim overhanging and dead branches and don’t leave unattended loose items outside as these can become projectiles.
  4. Know how to safely run a generator. Always keep generators outside under a canopied structure.
  5. Test/Install hurricane shutters and a wind-rated garage door.
  6. Speak with your insurance agent to review and understand your coverage.
