Announcing: Marble partners with Sola to offer tornado insurance
It’s another great day to be a Marble member! Today, we’re pleased to announce the launch of our partnership with Sola, our preferred partner for tornado insurance.
Here’s the thing: If a tornado strikes where you live, chances are you won’t be the only one impacted in the area. Tornadoes cause major problems (to put it lightly!), which means that most of your neighbors will also be filing claims and looking for assistance at the same time as you.
With Sola, you can offset some of the pain in the immediate aftermath of the tornado. Sola’s policies help cover any gaps in coverage during the time it takes for your homeowners insurance claim to process, or if your deductible for homeowners insurance is too high for you to make a claim. Their policies will also cover other out-of-pocket expenses you might incur. Those quick payouts mean that you can start your recovery that much sooner.
And if you’re sitting there thinking: “Wait a second - doesn’t my homeowner’s insurance cover tornados? You just talked about homeowners insurance in the last paragraph! Why would I need additional coverage?” You’re so right — many homeowners policies do cover tornadoes (or they offer wind and hail coverage). But (you knew there would be a “but”) there are limitations that could cause major headaches for you — specifically around the high deductibles and long wait times.
Sola policies, on the other hand, kick in immediately — without needing to wait weeks for a homeowners claim to go through. You can also use your payout from Sola to help cover any out-of-pocket expenses, including your homeowners deductible (which could be extremely high for wind and hail claims). In short, a Sola tornado policy adds a layer of protection on top of your homeowners insurance — one that you can take advantage of almost immediately.
One reason why you should pat yourself on the back for getting tornado insurance
It’s true that many people think tornados are only a midwestern problem. (The Wizard of Oz is probably to blame for that.) But you know that isn’t the case! You know that around 1,200 tornadoes touch down each year in the United States, and that tornadoes have been reported in all fifty states. They’re truly a national phenomenon!
You also know that tornado damage can be massive, and that recovery is an equally big — and lengthy — undertaking. Sola can help cover the gap in an otherwise long and exhausting claims process.
So while we hope that a twister never strikes your home, we commend you for your forward-thinking and disaster awareness: By protecting your home now, you’re looking out for your future.
