Will Homeowner’s Insurance Cover Storm Damage to Your Garage Door?

garage door damage

It is normal for your garage door to experience wear and tear and therefore need routine maintenance and repairs. As homeowners, we know this and anticipate it, so it is easy to plan and save for when that time comes. For emergency situations, we protect ourselves with homeowner’s insurance, but does it cover garage doors too? Neighborhood Garage Door Repair wants to go over all this with you.

Homeowner’s Insurance and Garage Doors

It’s easy to assume that since your garage door is attached to your home it is naturally covered by your homeowner’s insurance. However, that is not always the case. Coverage by your insurance company could depend on the accident itself or what you have chosen to have covered in your individual policy.

Fortunately, when it comes to a storm or natural disaster, your garage door is typically covered. This may include events like hail and high wind affecting your garage door or blowing debri into it. However, on the other hand, damage from events like flooding or earthquakes is not always covered, unless you have obtained policies for these individually.

Filing a Claim

With any insurance company, once the damage has been done to your garage door after an event or accident, you will have to file a claim. This may include filling out specific documentation from your insurance company, submitting pictures, or meeting with an adjuster to find out the monetary value of the damage. In some cases, you may even have to save and submit receipts for repairs in order to be reimbursed by your insurance company.

Covering Other Accidents

While not all natural disasters are covered by homeowner’s insurance, you may be curious to know what else is and isn’t covered. One area that is definitely covered is damage relating to vandalism and break-ins, like graffiti or broken windows. Additionally, depending on the situation, if you were to accidentally run into your garage door with your car, homeowner’s insurance will likely cover this as well.

On the other hand, if someone else hits your garage door while driving, it is their auto insurance policy that will likely cover the damage to your door. Ultimately, if you are concerned about your homeowner’s insurance and its coverage, review your policy today. Make the necessary changes to ensure that you and your family are covered in the event of any type of natural disaster, accident, or emergency situation.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
