Have Strong Storms Done Damage To Your Chimney? Let Hudson Chimney Help!

There are many wonderful aspects of living along the Northeast coast of Florida – the year-round beach access, lots of sunshine, and the lovely warm weather. But, with that beautiful tropical climate comes something a little less nice: severe thunderstorms and hurricanes. And while no one particularly enjoys a natural disaster, our chimneys – open, exposed, and unprotected – often bear the brunt of their destruction. Strong winds and heavy rains can devastate your chimney ripping up flashing, removing or damaging chase pans and chimney caps, damaging masonry, and causing chimney crowns to wear thin. And if these issues aren’t taken care of swiftly, even more damage can be done as water continues to seep into your chimney and the rest of your home. But we can help.

Will Homeowners Insurance Cover Chimney Repairs Due to Storm Damage?

They usually do, yes! As long as you have the proper documentation, that is. Much like with any other kind of insurance, coverage can sometimes be a bit tricky to predict – and when it comes to your home (and chimney specifically) a lot of repairs are not covered. The reason for this is because chimney damage is almost always preventable. If you’re caring for your appliance and staying on top of the regular maintenance services like chimney cleanings and inspections, you’ll be notified by your chimney professional if/when anything starts to look or behave stangely. Thus, you’re able to schedule important and necessary repairs in a timely manner.

Natural disasters like severe weather events, however, are (unfortunately) impossible to completely safeguard against. So, in cases where your chimney has been a victim of an intense storm and requires repairs for safe operation, your insurance should cover the service costs. You just have to provide a few documents – like written damage reports and photographs – to your provider and you should be all set. And when you work with a professional chimney service company like Hudson Chimney, we’ll help compile all of that for you so submitting the info is a breeze.
