Just as property damage from hurricanes are an annual threat, so too are damages brought upon by tornados and other such powerful storms. Florida’s Best Public Adjusters area always on the case! We frequently travel all over the state to one of our several offices to meet with clients who have suffered from storm or tornado damage and are being severely underpaid or undervalued on their claims.

Tornados in Florida

Hurricanes get all of the spotlight and infamy in Florida. However, much to the surprise of out of state visitors and recent transplants, tornados are a common occurrence in Florida. Florida is actually one of the states with the most frequently occurring tornados right behind Oklahoma and Kansas.

While tornados in the Midwest tend to be incredibly powerful, Florida by comparison has the most tornados per unit area but are often significantly weaker. Typically these tornados are EF0 or EF1 intensity.

However, if you’ve done work to value claims from tornado damages all over the state as we have, you’d know that a storm is a storm. You can’t underestimate the damage that an EF0 or EF1 tornado can cause—at the end of the day it’s still a tornado.

Just a week ago, an EF0 storm hit Central FL in Ocala; Marion county where Nathan Hughey—resident, described it as “shaking the whole house”. Hughey was not in the path of the storm either. Fellow resident Laurie Roberts was not so fortunate and suffered significant property damage.

Instances of storm damage such as these are not at all uncommon and pose a consistent threat year-to-year.

Tornado Property Damage Claims FL

While hurricanes can offer a smorgasbord of different types of property damage, tornados offer mainly two types of damage: wind and projectile.

As a result, the most commonly cited damage for storm damage claims involving tornados is extensive roof damage. Damage to your roof is one of the most perilous kinds of damage. If your roof has lost structural integrity, not only is this significantly more dangerous the next time a storm rolls around, but any cracks or gaps in the roof will inevitably contribute to substantial water damage as a result of trickle. This trickle will also create a mold problem which not only wrecks the roof and walls but also poses a health hazard.

Incurring property damage due to a tornado, especially with hurricane season around the corner, is not only risky but can lead to much more exaggerated damage in the event that we experience another landfall impact from a hurricane this year.

Being offered a settlement is almost always never the main issue, proving beyond a reasonable doubt with solid documentation and evaluation that the damage suffered is worth the amount you require to rebuild is what we do at Florida’s Best Public Adjusters.

Storm Damage Public Adjuster Florida

Insurance companies can and will nickel and dime you and only pay out the minimum of what they think they owe you. Insurance is a business, and as a result insurance companies may be willing to pay more, but they won’t offer it freely.

For that you need an experienced public adjuster who specializes in handling property claims and understanding the current market valuations for all types of damage. Our experienced adjusters can take a look at your claim and understand where you are being shorted and what your claim is actually worth.

Florida’s Best Public Adjusters ARE the best. Our adjuster came to the house a few times to scope out the damage from a water leak and he spent quite a bit of time measuring the affected areas. The resulting claim amount was amazing. If we had handled the insurance company ourselves we would have come up way short. We highly recommend and trust Florida’s Best. Thanks Julian!

Stephen got my denial reversed….had all to do with his reputation, and not the “luck of the Irish” on this St. Patrick's day! Him and his team are very professional, responsive and caring during the entire ordeal. If they are not on your team, you have chosen poorly.
