Steps to Take when Filing Roof Insurance Claims

roof insurance claimsYour roof is a key structural feature of your property. While it can withstand some damage and still function well, when you have serious damage that is compromising its integrity, it is time for professional assistance. Many times, storm damage or extenuating circumstances call for major repairs in a short amount of time. In these circumstances, it is almost always necessary to need to claim these repairs on your insurance. If you are the victim of a storm that has caused damage to your roof, here are some steps you need to take when filing a roof insurance claim.

1. Call a professional. This step is crucial and first for a reason. A professional roofer can give your insurance company a detailed and qualified estimate on the damage, the work that will need to be done, and the projected cost and timelines. Some roof insurance claims can even be filed directly through your roofing professional.

2. Don’t become the middle man. There are few things that are as frustrating as being in between two people and relaying messages back and forth. Unfortunately, this is often the case with insurance claims. Find a roofing professional who will file the claims on your behalf, leaving you free to come up with alternate arrangements, appease scheduling needs, and continue on with your busy life.

3. Prepare for restoration. After you have filed a roof insurance claim, prepare the time and scheduling necessary to allow yourself to be available while the work is being done.
