Insurance Claims - Repairs Your Home May Need In Florida Following A Storm

Hurricane Ian is only the latest storm to ravage The Sunshine State. It isn't the first and definitely won't be the last. However, our primary focus will be on Ian because people are currently dealing with the storm's aftermath. Firstly, if your Florida home or business was impacted by the hurricane, let us start by saying that we're sorry. There's nothing more disheartening than seeing the devastation Hurricane Ian left behind in its wake.

Hopefully, you have insurance and it covers the damages. But are you sure you're going to get paid the full amount that you're owed? Unfortunately, many insurers pay out the bare minimum, and often, that is not as much as the client paid in or bought. If you get short-changed by your insurance company, put an attorney in your corner that handles storm claims. They'll help you obtain the maximum recovery your insurance allows. 

The last thing anyone needs is to not get enough funding to fix all of their damages. Just imagine this scenario for a second. The insurance company gives you a check for $8,000 after a storm damages your house. However, it turns out there is actually $12,500 worth of damage. Now, a dispute arises because the insurer won't pay for the rest, even though you bought $50,000 worth of coverage. The following are some common repairs Florida homes need after storms.

Roof Replacement

When a storm brings heavy rain and strong winds, it isn't uncommon for roofs to fail. Perhaps shingles get blown away, and the covering leaks. Or maybe a tree fell, hit the roof, and left a hole. The price of a roof replacement varies in Florida. According to, a new roof typically runs between $11,000 and $30,000 in The Sunshine State.

Mold Remediation

An article on says radars suggest that Hurricane Ian dumped 12 inches of rain in 12 to 24 hours. With that much water falling from the sky, drainage systems failed and flooding occurred. When water enters structures, it isn't enough just to allow them to air out because mold could begin to grow. That's why owners need to consider bringing in water extraction companies as soon as possible after flooding.

Leaving mold as-is should never be an alternative because many people have mold allergies. If they're exposed to spores, symptoms such as itchy, watery eyes, cough, skin irritation, fever, and more can develop. Mold remediation services aren't easy on the pocketbook. According to Home Guide, the average cost of mold remediation is $2,325.

Window Replacement

When high winds begin whirling, they pick up and launch objects. The items get thrown everywhere and often crash through windows. It is also possible for hail falling from the sky to break glass panes. Skylights can get beaten up and broken during these processes too. Hence, it isn't uncommon for homeowners to find themselves paying for window replacements after storms.
