Out approach to Roof Inspections & Roof Insurance Claims.
1. Get a roof inspection from a reputable, local roofing company.
Many homeowners call their insurance company first. However – your roof may not have damage. In this case you may have this “claim” count against you anyway.
Start with a FREE, no-obligation roof inspection and receive a professional assessment of the condition of your roof.
2. If you have damage, make a claim with your insurance.
With your inspection report in hand you can file your claim on your homeowner’s policy with confidence. Your insurance company will likely ask you if your roof has already been inspected and if you have selected a contractor. Keep in mind you can work with any roofing company you want – it is your choice.
3. Have your insurance adjuster and your roofer inspect your roof together.
When they inspect the roof together, they are more likely to be on the same page about what will be covered by insurance. This will save back and forth phone calls and get the project started quickly.
4. Schedule your roof replacement with your selected roofing company.
After you select a local roofing contractor, schedule a day when your roof can begin replacement. Typical roof replacements take 1-3 days start to finish depending on the size and complexity of the roof. You are not required to be home when the work is being done.
5. Your deductible should be your only out-of-pocket expense.
Your insurance company will write you a check and once your roof work is done you pay your roofing contractor. A reputable company will not require money before they start your roof.
