It’s no secret that filing an insurance claim for roofing damage is a complicated process. Fortunately, it’s one in which your trusted roofer can lend a hand. In today’s post, local flat roof repair contractor Arrowhead Roofing explains how an experienced roofer can help you get a fair settlement for your roofing insurance claim.
Roofing Damage Assessment
In situations that involve roofing damaged by a storm, the homeowner has to inform their insurance provider that they need to file an insurance claim. The insurance company then sends an adjuster who will assess the extent of the damage, collect required documentation and signatures and file the claim on the homeowner’s behalf. If a diligent, knowledgeable adjuster is assigned to the homeowner, then the process should move along smoothly.
A roofing contractor can do more than just install a new roof for the homeowner. Insurance providers often defer inspection work to reputable local roofers because the latter know roofs better than anyone else. Roofers can also come up with an accurate estimate of the roof repair costs while advocating for the homeowner, helping ensure fair compensation for the roofing damage.
Incomplete or inaccurate documentation is one of the most common causes of insurance claim processing delays. Roofing contractors like us can provide invaluable assistance with documentation because we know which documents will be needed. We can also help make sure that all required documentation is complete before submitting it to your insurance provider.
Approved insurance claims are typically paid with two checks. The first one covers the down payment as stated in the repair estimate, while the second covers the rest of the approved claim amount after deductibles. Having your roofer on board from the beginning can help streamline this part of the process because repairs can be started almost immediately, leaving you to focus on your family’s well-being.
