While everyone needs homeowners insurance, it’s best to never have to use it. Filing claims is the quickest way to make this important safety net very unaffordable.

Start by looking at your yard. Do you have a lot of trees? Tree roots can wreak havoc for a homeowner, damaging the structure of your home, cement work in your sidewalks or driveway, sewer lines, fences, or even causing damage to your neighbor’s property. A little research into the types of trees growing in your yard, and the potential damage they may cause, can help you avoid making a claim for tree root damage.

One thing many people in the United States can count on is changes in weather patterns over time. In years where the weather patterns trend toward flooding, you may be in danger of damage by mudslide – which is typically not covered by homeowners insurance. You can avoid the possibility of damage by mudslide by making sure your yard is properly landscaped. Plant a variety of bushes and plants to break the momentum of a potential mudslide while helping keep your home from being damaged. Landscaping also improves the look of your yard – an added bonus.

This can prevent you from having to make a claim to your home owners insurance Houston for damage.
