West Palm Beach in south-eastern Florida is situated along the western shore of Lake Worth and is about 65 miles north of Miami. Tourism continues to be a huge contributor to the city’s economy, along with manufacturing, citrus shipping, and high-tech industries: several cultural institutions host opera and ballet companies and an art museum. The South Florida Science Museum, which houses an aquarium and a planetarium, and the Lion Country Safari, a preserve for African mammals, are on every visitor’s ‘must-see’ list.
The weather consists of tropical monsoon climatic conditions with an average year-round temperature of 64.4OF. The dry season is between November and April and is warm and mostly dry with a daytime temperature of around 80OF. The wet season between May and October is humid, wet, and hot. Over half the wet season experiences afternoon thunderstorms that bring in a cool breeze until sunset. However, the city may experience hailstorms with hail stones falling at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour.
On average, hailstorms result in over one billion dollars of annual damages to property. Depending on the size of the hail, you may find extensive damage to roofs, windows, and other parts of your home. Even gutters, air conditioning condensing units, roofs, and siding receive battering during a hailstorm. Further, damages caused by hailstorms are not easy to detect unless you know exactly what you are looking for. Claiming compensation on your insurance can be a complicated task, and here are some ways that may help you to navigate through the claim procedure:
Prevent further damages by taking preventive steps. Your insurer may put the obligation on you, and failing to avoid further damages may result in a claim rejection
Check your insurance policy to know the damages that are covered and those that are excluded.
Take photographs to maintain records of the damages and also get estimates for any structural damages that require repairs.
Finally, contact your insurance company at the soonest as you don’t want to miss out on the time within which you must inform the insurer about the damages and file your claim.
Contact a good public adjusting firm like Experienced Public Adjusters as you require a professional inspection from experts to identify such damages. Your insurance adjuster may easily miss observing all the possible damage, and you will be left with a lower claim amount. Roof damage is common, and a Brittle test is required to determine if your roof needs complete replacement. Our team makes it a point to be present during the field inspection, so your claim is not reduced or underpaid. Experienced Public Adjusters can help you recover a fair settlement as we represent your best interests while working with the insurer. We work on a success fee, which means we are paid only after the insurance company pays you.
