Things You Need to Know About Roofing Insurance Claims Before You File

Finding damage to your roof after a storm can be stressful. Lots of questions and concerns go through your head and how you’ll deal with the roofing insurance company.

If you’ve never dealt with an insurance claim on your home before, it can be confusing and at times overwhelming.

First thing you want to do is know that there is a process and order into filing a claim with an insurance company. So don’t panic and don’t sign anything until your insurance company has created a claim and approved the paperwork.

The insurance company will send an insurance adjuster out to insect the damage to your home and only then will the insurance company decide whether or not a claim is justified.

Once the adjuster has approved a claim, you get to pick your roofing contractor. It’s best to find a local roofing company, preferably one that has experience working with insurance companies.

Using a roofing contract that has experience working with an insurance company will come in handy as they will work together to get your roof fixed ager the storm. Afterall, the insurance company is the one who will pay for the repairs.

So, remember that after a storm has passed and you’ve found damage to your roof, you’ll need to talk to your insurance company first and start the process of getting a claim. Because you don’t want to sign anything before your insurance company has agreed that something needs to be fixed.
