When filing a roof damage insurance claim, it is important to have as much information and documentation as possible.

The insurance company will likely send an adjuster to assess the damage, and it is important to cooperate with them and provide any information they request.

DOCUMENT THE DAMAGE

Documenting the damage to your roof is essential for filing a successful insurance claim. Make sure to take photographs of the damage from different angles, and get estimates for repairs from one or more trusted contractors. The insurance company will likely send an adjuster to assess the damage, and as you work with them, you’ll be able to share your own personal findings as well as the quotes and information you received from the contractors. During the documentation process, you want to have as much information on hand as possible before your adjuster comes to visit your property. Being prepared will help to make the process go more smoothly.

UNDERSTAND YOUR POLICY

One of the most important things to understand when filing a roof damage insurance claim is your policy. Your insurance company will likely send an adjuster to assess the damage, and it is important to be familiar with what is covered under your policy. There may be specific provisions for roof damage, or the policy may have a general provision for property damage. It is important to know what is covered so that you can provide accurate information to the adjuster.

If you are unsure about anything in your insurance policy, contact your insurance company for clarification. They should be able to help you understand the terms of your policy and what is covered. You can also consult with a lawyer or insurance agent if you have further questions or concerns.

You can even count on the team at Tycos Roofing to help you further understand more about your roofing policy.

TALK WITH YOUR MORTGAGE COMPANY

If you have significant damage to your home and roof, you may need to contact your mortgage company. If you are not sure who your mortgage company is, you can look up the information on your mortgage statement or contact the company directly. They should be able to help you understand the terms of your policy and what is covered. Furthermore, they may be able to provide you with additional assistance, such as finding a contractor to do the repairs. In some cases, they have approved lists of contractors that will be able to do the work and have the costs covered by insurance.

HIRE CONTRACTORS WITH INSURANCE CLAIM EXPERIENCE

When hiring a contractor for roof repairs, it is important to select someone with experience filing insurance claims. This will help ensure that all paperwork and procedures are followed correctly. The contractor should also have a good reputation and be licensed in your state. We always recommend working with contractors who are familiar with the insurance claims process.
