In the Blink of an Eye

When it comes to technology, you don’t get much faster than Baton Rouge, Louisiana. LSU’s Supermike computer was named the top computer cluster in the world in 2001, and is still considered one of the top clusters in the world. Our fiber optic infrastructure has proven fast and reliable for the area. When it comes to technology and Baton Rouge, things can happen in the blink of an eye.

Unfortunately, when it comes to injuries on your property, things can also happen in the blink of an eye. It only takes a second for an accident to result in a personal injury claim. A pizza or package delivery person who stumbles on an uneven concrete path, a neighbor child who falls off your swing set or who cuts themselves on an unseen nail. Personal injury claims can come from a lawn service worker who runs over a rock or breaks an ankle in a hole in your yard. Even inside your house, a guest could slip on a loose area rug. While you can do your best to prevent them, accidents happen and they can happen on your property.

That is where the liability coverage of your homeowners insurance comes into play. Your liability coverage can protect you financially from a personal injury claim. That is, as long as your coverage is sufficient. Personal injury claims can be very expensive. Are you confident you have adequate limits? If not, contact us at David Cordell Insurance. We can quickly give you a homeowners insurance review. What’s more, if you choose, we can search multiple insurance providers to see if there may be better coverage available at a more affordable price. We invite you to visit our website and get a comparative quote on your homeowners or auto insurance.

Things can happen in the blink of an eye. If you live in the 70809 zip code area, make sure you are prepared by contacting David Cordell Insurance.

Five Spring Maintenance Tips for your Louisiana Home

Spring is here and that means those of us in Louisiana will be getting out more and enjoying the great natural resources around us. It also means we will be busy getting our homes ready for the heat and storms that are sure to follow. If you are a homeowner in the Pelican State, here are five spring maintenance tips for your home.

  1. We know you rarely look at you roof, but now is the time to give it a good visual inspection. Take a walk around your home looking for loose or missing shingles or uneven places that may indicate a small leak.
  2. Give your yard a good cleaning by picking up all sticks, stones and other foreign objects it may have collected through the winter. Never mow over sticks as they can become projectiles.
  3. Check your outdoor air conditioning unit to make sure it is clean and free of obstructions that can inhibit airflow into the unit.
  4. Check your home’s foundation. Look for cracks in the cinder blocks or bricks. Make sure your porch isn’t sinking. If your windows and doors start becoming difficult to open and close that could be a sign of a foundation problem.
  5. Clean your gutters and downspouts. Yes, we know it is a nasty task but clean gutters and downspouts protect your roof, eaves, and foundation. Make sure water is free-flowing.
