Helping Pasco County Recover after a Devastating Storm

Hurricanes, thunderstorms and high winds can cause sizable damage to residential and commercial properties.

Florida hurricanes and storms have the potential to cause severe damage. Because of this, your hurricane and storm insurance should cover certain damages, including:
- Structural or Foundation Damage
- Roof Damage and Replacement of Shingles
- Window Leakage and Wood Frame Rotting
- Siding Damage and Improperly Installed Planks
- Destruction of Personal Property or Possessions (this includes furniture, appliances and other valuables)
- Relocation Costs (this applies when your home is unlivable because of needed repairs)
In many cases, insurance companies will delay a claim using the excuse that it is too difficult to determine when the damage actually occurred. In other cases, they may try and say the damaged structure is undamaged when in reality, it is unusable.We Can Help – Contact Us Today in New Port Richey at 727-847-2299
