Be Prepared this Hurricane Season


This month's newsletter will focus on how to prepare your home and property for the severe summer weather and hurricane season. The Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety provides very helpful advice on everything from how to prepare for a storm to how to properly fortify your roof. 


Property insurers are paying more attention to the condition and age of the roofs on the homes and buildings they insure. They are providing credits for newer roofs and beginning to reduce coverage for older roofs. We hope the material provided helps you through this Summer's severe weather.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have regarding your own insurance coverage.

Top 10 Ways to Protect your Home and Wallet this Hurricane Season

Now that the Atlantic Hurricane Season is here (June 1 - Nov. 30), the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) urges residents in hurricane-prone areas to prepare their properties and protect their finances.

"Everyone living along the Gulf Coast and the Atlantic Seaboard should be ready for hurricane season. At a minimum, home and business owners need to protect their windows and doors, make sure their roof is in good shape, and have their trees and shrubs trimmed," said Julie Rochman, president & CEO of IBHS.

"Now is also the time for property owners to review their personal emergency plans and homeowners insurance, complete a home inventory if they haven't already, and stock on up needed supplies so they are ready for a potential storm. Don't wait until it's too late," Rochman cautioned.

5 Recommendations to Reduce Property Damage from Hurricanes

"While hurricane forecasts are predicting a below-average season, that just means fewer storms may make landfall this year. Residents need to remember it only takes one hurricane in your community to cause substantial destruction with long-lasting impact," said Julie Rochman, president and CEO of IBHS. "As a case in point, Hurricane Andrew in 1992 was the first hurricane in a relatively quiet season, but it devastated south Florida."

"Now is the time for property owners to review their personal and business emergency plans, stock on up needed supplies, and prepare their homes and businesses for a potential storm," Rochman continued.
