Common Homeowner Misconceptions About Tree Damage Insurance Claims
Homeowner’s insurance policies are often complex, and you may be unsure what your policy covers when it comes to tree damage to your home. In our experience working with many insurance companies, we’ve encountered many homeowners who have misconceptions about their coverage. Among the most common include:
- Insurance doesn’t cover fallen trees. Insurance companies will not pay claims for a tree that falls due to a lack of maintenance. However, if the tree falls due to natural causes listed on your policy and causes damage, your homeowner’s policy should cover at least some of the cost of removing the tree and making repairs.
- Insurance does not cover the entire cost of tree removal. Most homeowner’s insurance policies allow between $500 and $1000 per tree before you need to pay out of pocket. Remember that tree removal — hauling the debris from your property — is separate from the process of lifting the tree off your home. The policy may cover that separately as part of the overall damage claim.
- Homeowners have to contact insurance companies first. Many homeowners believe they need to get estimates from several tree services and permission from their insurance company before starting work if they plan to file a claim. This isn’t true; New Leaf Tree Service can remove the tree, and you can secure your home before you begin the claims process.
- Fallen trees are only covered when they damage your home. Even if a tree doesn’t fall on your home or cause significant structural damage, we can help you make a claim. Fallen trees can damage fences, retaining walls, outdoor lighting, and other features, and your insurance may cover the repairs.
