Insurance companies say “clear your deck”

Insurance companies are advising you to clean the snow off your deck.

Snow build up can add over 1000 pounds of stress on an 8 foot deck, which may cause it to collapse.

Some insurers are paying for fallen decks and patios, but then give warnings to the homeowner; pointing out that the damage wasn’t caused naturally.

If you make a claim, keep in mind the insurance premium will go up the minute you do so.
