In Southwest Florida, hurricane shutters can be an easy way to protect your home or business from gale-force winds, sheets of rain, and dangerous projectiles. But how much will these shutters cost you? Hurricane shutters are often less expensive than impact windows, which makes them more accessible to homeowners on a smaller budget.
As victims of Hurricane Sandy and other storms found out, insurance companies were overwhelmed by calls from thousands of claimants after the storm. It turned out that after a long wait, many people had claims closed without payment. Often, the cause of the denial was that their insurance was insufficient or it did not cover the type of damage that occurred. Common situations were that homeowners failed to have flood insurance, while businesses did not have flood insurance or business interruption insurance.
