Drainage is one of those things that rarely comes up on a house tour. To achieve proper drainage in your yard, you’ll either have a project on your hands or a contractor’s fee to pay off, which may cause you to want to look elsewhere. So what do you do if you’re all moved in and realizing you have drainage issues? Figure out the root cause of your drainage problems, and decide from there whether you can fix it all on your own by grading your yard, or if you need to call in some professional help.
Review your homeowners policy and understand what it does and does not cover. Many homeowners are unaware that damage caused by flooding resulting from a hurricane is not covered by their homeowners insurance. If you live in a coastal area, even if you are not in a low-lying area, you might want to consider purchasing flood insurance. Do not wait too long to do this, as most policies are usually not effective until after 30 days.
While more than half of the survey participants revealed that they did review their policy on their own or with an agent, only 18 percent enhanced their plan with 12 percent purchasing a new plan. These low numbers may point to the difficulty many have with understanding their own insurance policy. Most times the policies are long and often contain jargon that’s hard to understand without a background in insurance. Reviewing a policy on your own is a proactive step, but may not be enough to uncover policy gaps in the event of a natural disaster.
