The agents at Gulf Coast Educators Insuranceannounce insurance discounts to eligible homeowners who take proven methods to strengthen their homes against hurricanes. “Homeowners may get discounts off the windstorm portion of their insurance premium if they show a concerted effort toward making their dwelling stronger” says Ron DeFreitas owner/agent of Gulf Coast Educators Insurance.
DeFreitas adds “there are numerous things a homeowner can do to strengthen their home. Replacing their roof is a huge one. If a homeowner’s roof is old or showing signs of damage or decay this will be a very vulnerable spot on the home. Addressing key structural weaknesses will also be key to strengthening a home. Porches, overhangs and gable ends are typically the most frequent places homeowners experience damage. “
For additional areas to strengthen a home the Florida insurance agents at Gulf Coast Educators Insurance also recommend examining entry doors and the garage door of their home. These may be weak points where wind pressure and wind born debris may force them open or push them out of their tracks.
Gulf Coast Educators Insurance agents are available to guide homeowners how to further protect their homes as we approach hurricane season. “Our Florida insurance agents can coach homeowners on how to strengthen their home whether it’s on the water or inland. We have seen all types of claims from homeowners who didn’t properly secure their home or property before a storm hit. Many coastal residents talk with us each year to learn of new ways to strengthen their home” explains DeFreitas.
