With hurricane season in full swing and the potential for several storms, homeowners may wish to carefully their insurance policy to ensure they are properly—and thoroughly—covered in the event of a major storm.
Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/13/2018 -- Homeowners should know that just because their home is insured, it doesn't necessarily mean the home is covered in full. Homeowners should carefully examine their policy terms as it may only cover interior damage or exterior damage. Supplemental policies may also be worth considering as it can cover storm damage, spoiled food, and storm surge. These policies can help out tremendously as they may cover situations that sometimes go unconsidered.
Homeowners may wish to take into account factors such as deductible, rising sea levels, and the strength of the insurance company if they have intentions of changing policies. Most importantly, it's imperative not to underestimate the extensive amount of damage a hurricane can cost, which can spiral into the hundreds of thousands.
