When to Call Insurance About Your Roof

Insurance About Your Roof

The Central Florida area has weathered its share of devastating storms and hurricanes in recent years. With each storm, area roofs become weaker and more vulnerable to damage. All it takes is a single overhanging tree limb to snap during a strong storm for your roof to suffer significant damage. Fortunately, many roof insurance policies cover roof damage that results from qualifying severe weather events.

Why Call Your Roof Insurance Provider?

You should call your roof insurance provider as soon as you notice that your roof has been damaged due to severe weather or other disasters. Depending on the level of damage your roof suffered, you may be able to file a claim to cover the cost of repair.

Your roof insurance provider will send their adjuster to inspect your roof and determine if it is claim-worthy. At this time, it’s a great idea to get a contractor you trust on-site to represent you, point out all the damage to the adjuster, and make sure it’s documented. That way, if your report comes back and items are missing, your trusted contractor has all the damages listed and can get those items covered by the insurance company.  

Hiring a Professional Roofing Contractor

Here are a few things to keep in mind when selecting your roofing contractor for roof insurance repairs:

  • Experience: The most important thing to look for is if a contractor has had experience working with insurance claims. An experienced roofing company should know how the claims process works, understand the policy’s limits, and double-check the claim to make sure it’s correct. With an experienced roofer on your side, the claims process will be less stressful for you.
  • Location: It’s critically important to hire a local roofing contractor. Out-of-state companies may appear less expensive, but they’ll provide lower-quality work since they need to move quickly. A local company will know the area well and be more dedicated to providing you with a durable, high-quality
  • Expertise: Make sure your contractor has proper licensing, bonds, and insurance. All reputable businesses should have the correct paperwork to protect you and their workers.
