Houston, Texas (PRWEB) September 09, 2013
Hurricane season in Texas may have began in June, but according to the Texas Department of Insurance, hurricane activity runs until the end of November, peaking in August and September. While the state has been fortunate thus far, that does not mean homeowners should let their guard down. Weiser Insurance believes that it is crucial to expect the unexpected. With that being said, the agency is here to help its residents remain prepared for the worst case scenario.
Hurricane preparedness is crucial for homeowners and their financial future. Get prepared: It’s important to review and update insurance at this time. The agency endorses performing these five important actions regarding families and homeowners insurance:
#1: Start with a home inventory each year and store it in a safe place. Today, many people are taking pictures and storing them online.
#2: Review policy coverages with an agent and store copies of the home inventory. It’s important to know limits, deductibles, exclusions and claims notification requirements, before disaster strikes.
#3: Consider purchasing windstorm insurance. Policies for those who live in Texas’ 14 coastal counties often do not include this critical coverage. Review the policy carefully and know its limits.
#4: Consider flood insurance. Most homeowners and commercial property policies specifically exclude coverage for damage from flooding. To protect personal assets, a separate flood insurance policy will be necessary.
#5: Make a safety plan. If local authorities recommend evacuation, residents should leave.
Determine in advance where to go and the safest route to get there.
Residents must check-in on their coverages, from home insurance to flood insurance. Residents who are interested in checking in or purchasing additional insurance in preparation should call Weiser Insurance at 888-901-8897. The agency is more than happy to discuss options and techniques to remain safe and sound through an unexpected storm.
