Here are three reasons to look into grading your yard sooner rather than later. Any land with a sloping hill leading into your property is going to cause water to drain into your yard or driveway. That water will eventually wear away your landscaping, leaving rivers between your bushes or pools of water in your backyard and potentially causing flooding problems in your basement. If you don’t fix the problem as soon as you recognize it, your property will be eaten away by water erosion, leading to a more expensive future project of having to bring soil in and re-landscape your entire yard.
It’s human nature to become accustomed to watches and warnings if you live in an area that experiences such warnings every year. Resist the tendency to take these too lightly. Every storm is different, and a complex number of factors can either increase or decrease any storm’s intensity quickly. Review the experiences of others to see how your carrier handled similar claims in the past, and above all, stay safe.
Loretta Worters, a spokeswoman for the Insurance Information Institute, a trade group, said some insurers include the dollar value of the deductible, along with the applicable percentage, to eliminate confusion. A hurricane deductible is distinct from the deductible for other sorts of damage to the home and usually goes into effect when a storm is categorized as a hurricane by the National Weather Service — or, in some cases, when a storm is named, even if doesn’t become a hurricane. (Some policies have separate windstorm deductibles that apply even for unnamed storms.)
