How Do You Know if Your Home Has Sustained Hailstorm Damage?

How do you know if you have sustained hailstorm damage to your roof or other hidden areas of your home? While you might assume that damage to your house or to your vehicle caused by hail will be obvious, this is not always the case. Even if the damage you see is indeed the product of a hailstorm, your insurance company might try to deny your claim, alleging that the damage resulted from something else. Given that a recent report in Accuweather forecasted severe thunderstorms for the recent holiday weekend in South Florida (which can produce damaging hail), and since Floridians should always be prepared for a damaging thunderstorm, it is important to understand the ins and outs of hailstorm damage. 

Apartment Fire in Hillsborough Results in Significant Home Damage

Fires that start in homes are extremely dangerous. Not only can they cause substantial fire damage to your property, but they can also result in serious and sometimes fatal bodily injury. According to a recent article in the Tampa Bay Times, an apartment building fire in Hillsborough County has left 13 residents without a home, two residents with injuries requiring medical treatment, and at least two apartments with irreparably heavy property damage caused by the fire. How did the fire start? And what should you do if your apartment sustains fire damage?

Large Sinkhole Causes Damage in Pasco County

As a map from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection makes clear, Pasco County sits firmly within "Sinkhole Alley," a name given to a region of West Central Florida known for having a high rate of sinkhole activity. Yet even though this part of the state is known for sinkholes opening and causing damage to property, news of one of these events can still come as a shock. In particular, broadcasts about sinkhole damage and sinkholes that open underneath homes should alert residents of Pasco County and other areas around Tampa Bay to be on the lookout for signs of these potentially harmful occurrences.
