WHY YOU SHOULD LET YOUR ROOFING
COMPANY HELP WITH YOUR CLAIM
It’s important to always contact a reputable roofing company before reaching out to an insurance company if your property is hit by a severe storm. A good roofing company will walk you through your insurance claim and ensure the maximum payout you deserve.
WHY SHOULD I CALL MY ROOFER FIRST?
Oftentimes, owners will call their insurance company first to get an estimate of damages, but that’s not always in the best interest of the owner. Instead, call your professional roofer to come and inspect your home or property to guarantee an accurate estimate. Expert roofers frequently work with insurance companies and understand their process, but will go to extra lengths to make certain you are safe in the long run.
Unlike insurance companies, roofing experts will search for leaks and underlying problems that aren’t easy to catch at first glance. While in most cases, insurance adjusters only look for surface damage. If an insurance adjuster misses those deeper issues, it can be a safety risk for you and your family as the integrity of your property will only worsen.
HOW DO I KNOW IF AN INSURANCE CLAIM IS NECESSARY?
Damages don’t always require you to file an insurance claim, which is another reason why it’s important to first call your roofing company. They will be your advocate and ensure that insurance companies aren’t taking advantage of you. Also, keep in mind that your insurance rate may increase if you inappropriately file a claim, which will also cost you more money in the future. Your roofing company will help to determine if the damages are or aren’t worth filing.
DO I HAVE TO BE THE LIAISON BETWEEN MY
ROOFING AND INSURANCE COMPANY?
No! Most can agree that dealing with insurance claims can be overwhelming and confusing. But time-consuming and frustrating claims can be avoided when calling a roofing company first. After inspection, your professional roofer will send a claim to the insurance company for a more accurate appraisal. You won’t have to be the liaison between companies, in fact, you may not have to be involved at all.
Avoid the entire claim fiasco and let your roofing company help. They’ll work with your insurer to make certain the claim covers necessary damages, keeping you and your family safe for years to come.
