First step is finding out what your insurance policy covers and if you don’t know, contact your insurer. Insurance claims take into consideration the age of your roof. You may be covered for all the damage if your roof is less than 10 years old. Older roofs may be reimbursed at a depreciated value of the damaged roof.

Will my rates increase by filing a roofing insurance claim? Unlike auto insurance, homeowners insurance doesn’t penalize you for turning in a roofing claim.
