Storm Damage & How to avoid it.

Storm damage is a common problem each year affecting thousands of homes with powerful gales of 80mph plus with and 20mm of rainfall causing risk to life and damage to property and widespread chaos.

You can take some logical steps to protect your home and hopefully the following steps should help you to be prepared, especially over the Winter months.

Check your insurance cover

In most instances your home insurance will provide protection against the costs associated with repairs to your home following storm damage but review your cover regularly and check it’s up to date. I would check also your policy covers rebuilding, not just market value. 

If your policy excludes certain types of storm damage such as damage to fences, etc I myself wouldn’t worry as I would only claim for major damages. In my experience most modern claims of say a few hundred pounds will cost you more money in increased premiums in the following few years after a claim.

When reviewing your policy you should also consider:

Pro Active maintenance helps a lot. 

  • Roof – Fix loose or damaged Roofing Slates, Roofing Tiles and especial Ridge & Hip Tiles, Loose or damaged lead flashing, dangerous or defective chimneys, loose television satellites or aerials, remove any debris from your roof.
  • Structure – Check and identify faults & repair defective Brickwork.
  • Windows/Doors – Secure windows to withstand strong windows, fix loose fastenings and locks, consider fitting internal shutters.
  • Gardens – Secure loose covering on sheds, remove weak tree branches, weak roots, repair loose fences, gates or walls, secure free standing garden furniture, ornaments and children’s toys (e.g. trampolines)
