As your roof is your home’s first line of defense, you can expect your roofing system to sustain a significant amount of damage every now and then, especially when a strong storm passes by your area. When that happens, you’ll need to have your roof repaired or replaced immediately. Unfortunately, not everyone has the funds to pay for such a project. This is where insurance claims come in.
In this post, All American Roofing gives you tips that can help you properly navigate a post-storm insurance claims process.
Once you hear that a strong storm is arriving in your area, be sure to document everything you can about your roof. Take pictures and videos of your roof before the storm and after the storm, once it’s safe to do so, take pictures and videos of your roof as well. That way, you’ll have proper documentation of your roof to give to your insurance adjuster.
Inspect the Roof
When you’re done documenting your roof, you can now enlist the services of a roofing contractor to have it inspected. By having a professional inspect your roof, you’ll be able to justify your claim better as you’ll be able to show your insurance company what exactly the damage was and how much it’ll cost to fix those damages.
Contact Your Insurance Company
While your roofer is inspecting your roof, contact your insurance provider to let them know you’ll be making a claim. After a few days, an adjuster should arrive at your home. While meeting with an adjuster may sound intimidating, all you’ll have to do is talk to them, show them the proper documentation, and negotiate until you come upon an agreement that both parties are comfortable with. Once you’ve done so, you can expect a payout within the next few days.
