What does hail and wind damage insurance cover?

Hail and wind damage to your home is covered on most policies. But there are often some conditions.

For instance, if your roof is damaged by hail, or shingles blow off in a windstorm, you may not be paid the full cost to replace it if it was fairly close to its life expectancy. If wear and tear was partially responsible for the roof being susceptible to damage, depreciation may be applied to your settlement. Any damage that is a result of regular wear and tear is not covered by insurance.

Or, if a windstorm knocks over a tree, and it falls onto your house, the policy will often cover the damage to your home, but it will not pay to remove or replace the tree. Damage to radio antennae and satellite dishes is also commonly excluded if the damage is caused by wind or hail.

Home insurance wordings are not always the easiest to read or understand, so to find out exactly what you’re insured for, you may need to consult your insurance provider.
