Hurricanes Can Leave Your Property with Significant Damage
When Hurricane Michael hit the Emerald Coast little more than 30 miles northwest of Franklin County in October 2018, it brought with it 155 mile-per-hour winds, rain, and hail. Bay County’s Mexico Beach took a direct hit, and many people reported damage to their homes, businesses, or other property. Some of the most common damage included:
- Lost shingles and other roof damage
- Downed power lines and fires
- Downed trees on structures and fences
- Structural damage to buildings
- Broken windows and garage doors
- Damage to garages, sheds, and fences
Many of those affected were able to pursue payouts through their homeowners’ insurance coverage, which generally provides compensation for damage from winds and hail. Others needed to pursue additional compensation from flood insurance to cover damages caused by flash flooding or storm surge since this is not included in homeowners’ insurance policies.
If your Gulf of Mexico property suffered damage in a hurricane, our team can help you with no cost to you unless we recover a settlement on your behalf. We will meet with you for free as soon as possible about your claim. Reach out to us today: 866-703-4878.

Covered Damages Following a Franklin County, FL Hurricane
Homeowners’ insurance coverage varies from policy to policy, but they generally provide coverage for the same types of things. Most include hurricane damages, although some may not. In some cases, they may charge a special deductible for hurricane damages. This is often a percentage of the value of the home instead of a flat price.
When an insurance policy provides coverage for hurricane damage, this usually includes wind and hail damage, as well as fallen trees, fires caused by downed power lines, and similar damages. Some of the most commonly covered damages include:
- Roof repair or replacement costs
- Structural damage to buildings, garages, sheds, and fences
- Damage from downed trees on buildings or fences
- Siding or shutter damage from wind or hail
- Broken windows, doors, and garage doors
- Water damage that occurs because of a hole in the roof or wall
- Food spoilage related to a power outage
Your homeowners’ insurance most likely will not cover any flooding from flash floods or storm surge. If a flood affects your property, you may not be able to recover money for your flood damage unless you carry a separate flood insurance policy through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). If you do have NFIP insurance, sometimes called FEMA insurance, we can help you with this claim, as well.
