Homeowners Insurance and Tree Damage
If a tree on your property falls and damages your home or other structures, your homeowners insurance policy will generally cover the costs of repairs. However, there are some important things to keep in mind when it comes to filing an insurance claim for tree damage.
Most homeowners insurance policies have a deductible that must be met before the insurer will pay out any benefits. This means you’ll be responsible for paying the first few thousand dollars of damages out-of-pocket.
Additionally, many insurers will only pay out benefits for trees considered healthy and structurally sound before the incident. So, you may not be covered if the fallen tree was already dead or dying before the incident.
If you're unsure whether your homeowners' insurance policy covers tree damage, call us today for further advice and the next steps.
