Hurricanes, tornados, hailstorms, tropical storms, windstorms, thunder and lightning storms,
and other storms can all inflict havoc on your home or business. High wind can lift shingles
and tiles or blow them completely off, allowing rain to enter your dwelling. Rain can enter
through windows or other inconspicuous openings in your home. Trees or other outside objects
may crash onto your property creating gaping holes and severe water intrusion, hail may dent
your vehicles and home. Fences may collapse or blow into structures. Wind may cause
severe pressure often causing windows to bow tearing seals and creating leaks. Lightning can
cause severe damage to your electrical system. Damages may be extremely apparent, yet other
damages may go unnoticed and only be discovered after years have passed. Gulf Coast Public
Adjusters are experts in identifying hidden damages to the home or business that owners are
not aware of, and insurance company adjusters will avoid.
Wind forces may also cause roof sheaths or panels to blow up allowing water to enter the

will unveil and account for the hidden damages.
The destruction caused by wind and rain is covered in most homeowners’ insurance policies.
However, there can be exclusions or limitations causing your claim to be denied. Storms that
are not named hurricanes or tropical storms are not subject to large hurricane deductibles.
Yet, insurance companies may attempt to categorize your damages under the hurricane
deductible to limit your recovery funds. Storm claims are routinely denied by insurance
carriers sighting the damages as wear and tear. Insurance carriers often attempt to only pay
for patches and repairs. Do not accept insurance company curtailed payments or denials. Gulf
Coast Public Adjusters will pursue the claim with determination and conviction.
The repairability and pliability of shingles and underlayment is vastly diminished once the
roofs are ten (10) years or older. Discuss any repair quote from your insurance carrier with
Gulf Coast Public Adjusters to determine the viability of the roof repair.
