Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Fence Damage?
Service & Repair
The Central Texas spring and summer can bring beautiful sunny days, but also powerful thunderstorms that sweep through Austin, Lakeway, Cedar Park, and throughout our area. These thunderstorms can show up out of nowhere and, unfortunately, can often leave a trail of damage in their path. If your fence happens to be part of that damage, you might be wondering what to do first and whether homeowners insurance will cover the damage.
Fence Blown Over by High Winds
High winds are a frequent cause of damage to wooden privacy fences in Austin and Central Texas. Because they are a large vertical surface with little space between the slats, a sudden wind shear can knock over an entire section of fence.
Luckily, homeowners insurance often covers fence damage caused by high winds from a storm. Of course, check your homeowners policy to be certain and also remember to take pictures of any damage before attempting any cleanup. Discount Fence USA can also come out to inspect the damage and offer you a free estimate.
Fence or Automatic Gate Tree Damage
The most extensive damage to a fence or gate usually comes from a fallen tree. This can be either a wooden privacy fence or a wrought iron fence and/or automatic gate. Typically, it doesn’t matter whose tree it was in terms of insurance coverage. Most homeowners insurance will cover the fence or iron gate damage whether it was your or your neighbor’s tree. Again, take pictures of any damage before calling someone out to take care of the tree.
Of course, if a tree falls and damages an automatic gate or any entry gate that prevents people from coming and going, then you’ll want to get it fixed right away. The Quick Repair Team at Discount Fence USA will likely be your fastest option. Give us a call at (512) 334-9546 for the quickest iron fence or gate repair in the Austin area.
In addition, if you manage an apartment complex or any property where fixing the automatic gate as quickly as possible is vital, save our Quick Repair Team’s number in case of any other kind of damage.
