Everyone here at Beriswill Insurance hopes you had a Happy New Year and 2014 is treating you well so far. It sure has been cold! We hope everyone is staying safe. We recently received an email from the Ohio Dept. of Insurance regarding cold weather tips. A lot of problems can be caused by cold, icy and snowy weather such as ruptured water pipes, fallen trees and limbs, slick roads and walkways, and power outages leaving you cold with spoiled food.
Most insurance companies ask that you take preventative measures to protect your self, family and property. Most damage related to winter storms is covered by insurance EXCEPT flooding. Since insurance coverage varies from company to company and policy to policy you should check your insurance policy for specifics or contact our office.
Should something happen to your property most generally we will ask you to try to prevent additional damage by either doing temporary repairs your self or seek the help of a professional.
Stay warm and safe....
