You don't have to be directly hit by a tornado in Texas to experience damage. Taking some time to prepare could save you thousands of dollars and hours of clean-up.
In an average year, 800 are reported nationwide, but in April of 2011 alone, 875 tornadoes were reported. Oftentimes, homes and businesses close to a tornado are damaged or destroyed by wind, rain and flying debris. Check with us to see if your insurance policy covers repair or rebuilding costs.
If you can’t live in your home, see if your policy will pay additional living expenses. We can review your policy for detailed coverage explanations.
Review your insurance policy once a year to make sure you have enough coverage to rebuild based on current construction costs. Offenhauser recommends you work with an independent building contractor to get a precise estimate, and make sure you chat with us about your business or home’s unique features.
You can’t make your home or business tornado-proof, but you can take steps that improve the odds of surviving the high winds. Ideally, you may want to call on professionals for the more technical jobs.
