How can wind damage a home?

Here are some of the ways that homes suffer wind damage:

  • Roof damage, either from materials lifted from the roof or crushing from a tree or other flying objects
  • Gutters and downspouts that detach
  • Garage door, awning, porches and decks becoming unstable
  • Torn or damaged siding
  • Broken windows
  • Fallen trees, uprooted trees
  • Secondary damage if the home is exposed to moisture

Home damage may result from straight-line winds, gust fronts, derechos, microbursts and tornadoes. Atmospheric conditions can make the wind powerful. Wind damage often occurs along with other weather forces that cause harm.

Why do insurance companies deny wind damage claims?

Insurance companies have many tactics that they use to avoid paying claims. If you make a wind damage claim, you may find the insurance company trying to deny or minimize your compensation.

The insurance company may say:

  • Your policy lapsed.
  • It doesn’t cover wind damage.
  • A dangerous condition, like a damaged tree or a roof that needed repair, was allowed to exist, causing the damage.
  • The damage isn’t serious enough for insurance to pay.
  • Your claim is worth a lot less than you say it is.
  • Claims weren’t filed on time.
  • Damage existed before the storm, or there is no proof that there was a weather event.

Sometimes, the insurance company doesn’t say anything at all. Instead, they don’t respond, or they take a long time to respond. They may misrepresent the terms of your policy, hoping you’ll believe them and give up.
