After a storm you may experience storm damage, how do you know if your covered?

After a storm comes through Akron, Ohio many homeowners will have to file a claim after discovering missing shingles, hail damage or even loose siding. Homeowners have insurance to protect their dwelling and their belongings against storm and flood damage. However, some damage is not covered under an insurance policy. There is insurance to cover such damage, but sometimes an insurance company may not pay out a weather-related home claim if it feels that the homeowner has not maintained their property.

What is wear and tear on a home?

A severe storm can cause shingles to lift and fall off, siding may be ripped off or hail damage to both roof and siding. Although, if a roof has already been damaged by age and general wear and tear then the insurance company may not cover the claim. When it comes to flooding from severe rainfall, a claim can be disputed against gutters that have not been kept clear of leaves and other debris can contribute to water damage to the property and may not be covered. When basements are water damaged a question of how the water entered comes into question. Do you have sump pump, foundation or even drain back up coverage?
