In the event of an emergency such as a tree on a house, car, shed or other structure, Hometown Tree Experts offers 24 hour emergency tree service for storm damage. A tree fallen onto a house is a very common occurrence in a wind storm or hurricane, especially in the our service area. Storms are a common occurrence. When brute force winds come along with wet saturated grounds, trees are bound to fall over. Uprooted trees can cause serious damage.
Storm Damage & Emergency Tree Removal
The first thing a resident should do when a tree falls onto their house, is make sure everyone in the house and around is safe. Trees can come crashing down and smash into houses actually landing right on the interior floor if the tree is large enough. Next, a call to the insurance company to inform them of what happened is necessary. By the way, this is one reason why residents have home owners insurance – to cover major damages to their homes such as storm damage. The insurance company will usually recommend a local tree service from their preferred vendor list. Call the tree company right away to receive a free estimate to remove the storm damaged tree from the house.
What does the insurance company usually cover?
Insurance companies will cover trees that fall onto a structure and removing the tree back to the uprooted root ball to the property line. Everything is done within property line boundaries. The insurance companies will request that the emergency tree service estimate be itemized to separate the cost of removing the tree from the house, and hauling the wood. If a tree does not hit a structure at all, then the insurance company generally does not get involved in the process, and is not responsible for the bill. It really depends on the insurance company and policy a home owner has on their dwelling.
