Advice On Storm Damage Limitation Comes From Halifax

As the Met Office issues more storm warning across the UK so Halifax home insurance are advising customers and other homeowners on some basic ways of dealing with the adverse weather and protect their homes and property as best they can.

In the cold and wintry conditions that have been prevailing across the country recently the Halifax have been warning about the protection of water pipes to avoid freezing, ensuring all items out in the garden are secured or put away and also for homeowners to look at their insulation levels to keep their costs down on heating.

The average cost of a claim for storm damage is in the region of GBP1,000, so it makes sense for the insurer and the insured to do something about protecting their assets. The ideal scenario is for the homeowner to endure no damage and the insurer, Halifax, to endure no claims.
