Hail, wind, and storm damage are common emergency situations that affect your roof. Even if you don’t see anything wrong with your roof after a bad storm, there’s likely some unseen damage going on. Therefore, we always recommend getting a roof inspection after a storm. Here is how you can work with your roofer to ensure a smoother insurance claim process.
It’s recommended not to wait until after a storm to get a roof inspection. In fact, getting an annual roof inspection can drastically improve the longevity of your roof. One way you can prepare for potential emergencies is by asking your roofer to document the state of your roof. That way, if a storm damages your roof, you can have before and after photos to prove exactly what was damaged by the storm.
Another way your roofer can help you with your insurance claim is by providing an estimate of costs to replace your roof. Every insurance policy is different when it comes to what is covered, but most will ask for an estimate. This way your insurance companies knows how much to pay out for your claim when it is approved.
Obviously, your roofer is always ready to help you fix your roof. Even if you are waiting for an insurance claim to process, we don’t want the damage to get worse! We can help you create a temporary fix so that you can continue living in your home safely and securely.
