Assessing windstorm property damage should begin as soon as practical and possible after an event. While catastrophic damage is often easy to spot, more subtle signs of pre-existing building damage are not. Many types of damage are, in fact, inherent to different construction materials -- but they are not recognized until after the windstorm occurs, which the policyholder then attributes to the event. The purpose of this paper is to consider how wind acts on a building; summarize two common building damage issues; examine legal considerations relevant to the adjusting process; and comment in respect to the same.
