Expert advice and assistance when dealing with storm damage repairs
Storm damage is often structural damage caused by gale force winds which can result in flooding and rain water accessing the property. Unfortunately, damage can occur as a result of wear and tear (particularly to flashings and flat roof coverings) and this is not ‘storm damage’ and is therefore excluded from the cover provided by the insurance policy. Similarly, damage to gates and fences is excluded. Sometimes water can overflow from roof valleys or blocked outlets in parapet walls, and the resulting damage can be covered under the escape or overflow of water peril. Storm damage can lead to water damage causing collapsed ceilings, damaged floors and decoration, and can be expensive to repair.
How best to make a storm damage claim.
It is important to have the roof examined by a competent roofer to determine the extent of repairs necessary as a result of the storm damage. A roofers report will be required to support your claim and it is best if photographs can be taken before any emergency storm damage repairs are carried out so as not to prejudice your position. Its best to discuss the issues with Claims Assist experts first.
