Homeowners insurance typically covers wind damage, though the specific coverage can differ depending on the policy. It's important to review your insurance contract to fully understand your level of coverage.
Here are some common types of wind damage that are typically covered by insurance:
It's important to note that coverage limits, deductibles, and policy terms can vary widely from one insurance carrier to another. Some policies may have specific exclusions or limitations related to wind damage. Read your policy carefully and make sure you understand it before filing a claim.

Whether you need a separate policy for wind and hail damage or not depends on your homeowners insurance policy and carrier.
Standard homeowners insurance typically includes dwelling coverage for wind and hail damage, protecting your home, including the roof, from these perils. It's important to know your deductible, as you'll have to pay that amount before your policy will cover any repairs. Temporary repairs to prevent further damage are usually covered.
While separate windstorm policies are available for added protection, they may only be necessary in areas with a history of severe wind damage. If disputes arise with your insurance company, it's advisable to consult a law firm with experience in storm damage and insurance claims.

Faulty wiring, unattended cooking equipment, candles, or smoking are all common causes of house fires. Although homeowners insurance may cover some of the fire damage, there are a few situations when fire damage will not be covered.
If the home was considered vacant at the time of the fire — unoccupied for more than 30 days — it likely won’t be covered. And if arson caused the fire, even if the homeowner didn’t purposely set the fire themselves, deliberate fire is a criminal offense and not covered.The difference between actual cash value (ACV) and replacement cost coverage lies in how they calculate claim payouts.
ACV considers the damaged property's current value, factoring in depreciation due to age and wear. This means you receive a payout that reflects the item's worth at the time of the loss, which can be less than its original cost.
By contrast, replacement cost coverage covers the full cost of repairing or replacing the damaged property with a similar new item, without deducting for depreciation. It provides a higher payout (often closer to the property's original value), ensuring that you can fully restore your damaged property.
The decision of which coverage type is right for you will come down to whether you'd prefer lower premiums (ACV) or more comprehensive coverage (replacement cost).
Many insurance policies offer optional coverage for additional living expenses (ALE) when your home becomes uninhabitable due to covered damage like wind or hail. ALE can help with temporary housing, meals, and other necessary costs.
The extent of coverage and specific limits may vary depending on your policy. As such, you'll want to consult your insurance provider to better understand their ALE provisions and confirm that you’ll receive the support you need during your home's restoration.
