Keeping Your Home Safe from Windstorms

Across the county, wind damage accounts for almost ¼ (24%) of homeowner’s insurance claims. One of the most common and preventable causes is overgrowth of trees and large shrubs near the home. As storms kick up, branches can break and cause significant property damage.

Additionally, continued rubbing of overgrown trees and branches on roofs and siding can wear down those items and create leaks and cracks. These materials serve as a home’s first line of defense and when they become compromised, it can lead to much larger claims.


We encourage our clients to make sure their trees and bushes are properly trimmed and that no branches are touching or overhanging the home. Additionally, homeowners should consider bringing their home up to the IBHS Fortified Home Program standard which addresses high winds and damaging hail specifically. Call us for more information regarding these programs.

Riverside Insurance is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability. We aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make Web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly to everyone. Whilst we strive to adhere to the guidelines and standards for accessibility, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website and we are currently working to achieve this. Be aware that due to the dynamic nature of the website, minor issues may occasionally occur as it is updated regularly. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.

If you have any comments and or suggestions relating to improving the accessibility of our site, please don't hesitate to contact our accessibility coordinator Julius Luciano by phone at 970-999-0101 or by email at JLuciano@riversideinsuranceco.com . Your feedback will help us make improvements.
