Every year millions of dollars are paid by insurers, homeowners, business owners for property damage and harm to pedestrians resulting from falling roof snow. According to TD insurance, home insurance does not cover winter property damage to your home if it could have been prevented by proper maintenance. Save money and time in the long by taking proactive steps now to protect your home from winter damage.
According to the Pennsylvania Insurance Department, the majority of homeowners are unfamiliar with their home insurance coverage and are discovering they are not covered for winter damage repairs. Several customers have been helped by appealing an adjuster’s decision or filing a complaint. A spokesperson says “There can be surcharges resulting from filing a claim. Agents sometimes suggest it might be better in the long run to repair damages ourselves for smaller problems.”
Property damage occurs from snow and ice tearing off eaves troughs, falling on people/vehicles, air-conditioning units, and decks. Furthermore, falls onto neighboring property can cause homeowners to be liable for damage costs.
