Hurricane Claims Kit – CJ – Web – C
The risk of hurricane damage is ever increasing, as the population of the US coastline continuously grows. According to CoreLogic’s Storm Surge Report, there are currently over 800,000 US residential properties at extreme risk (would be affected by a Category 1-5 hurricane) for storm surge damage. The report also estimates that there are over 20 million homes currently at risk for storm surge from a category 5 hurricane.
Hurricanes bring many destructive forces that can cause extensive property damage. The majority of the claimed hurricane damage to HVAC systems is due to wind, water, and lightning/surge. To help prepare you for any tropical storm or hurricane damage claims that come your way this season, we’ve put together a toolkit designed for adjusters, like you, with resources on the three main hurricane damage types.
