Every year from July through November, homeowners and business owners of Fort Lauderdale hunker down and prepare for the annual stream of hurricanes that make its way through Florida. While many South Floridians don’t take them seriously, hurricanes and tropical storms alike carry severe dangers with them, such as extreme wind speeds, torrential downpours, and other hazards that put you and your loved ones at risk. While Palm Beach and South Florida building codes have grown over the years to better protect homes and commercial properties from these storms, a strong enough storm can still cause significant damage.
We always hope that it doesn’t happen to us, however there may come a time when your home, office, or property has been damaged by a hurricane or tropical storm. This can be a very taxing experience for you and your loved ones to experience. Understandably, your first instinct is to contact your insurance provider. While they may feel for you in this time of need, your insurance provider has different financial goals. Whatever your damage claim may be, they’re doing what they can to ensure they provide you with the smallest claim amount possible, despite your struggles. Too often do we see this happen, and too often do we find families, business owners, and property managers alike feel lost, and with nowhere to turn.

Living in Palm Beach County and South Florida for an extended period can make you almost numb to the number of storms that pass through every year. However, while 100 storms can come and go and not cause severe damage, all it takes is that one. Tropical storms have wind speeds of anywhere from 39-74 miles per hour, which is significant enough to cause light to moderate damage to your roof. As hurricanes go up in category, they can reach sustained wind speeds beyond 157 miles per hour, causing major damage to your home and the surrounding area. High wind speeds can rip and tear through roofs, your home’s first line of defense. In fact, higher wind speeds can even uplift trees, down power lines, and overturn cars as if they weighed nothing.
If your home or property has been damaged by heavy winds due to a hurricane, Reliant Adjusters Group is here to help. Rather than your insurance provider deciding how much to give you, we take you through each step of evaluating the damage, and getting the right claim amount to get the necessary repairs or replacements.
Hurricanes and other heavy storms typically bring a significant amount of rain, and depending on the area, flooding. Coastal neighborhoods are much more susceptible to flooding directly from the ocean, however sustained downpours can cause flash floods throughout streets, underpasses, and even your home.
