A strong storm can cause plenty of destruction, which is why it’s important to have insurance. However, the process of filing an insurance claim for storm damage can be overwhelming for homeowners. As the leading choice for roofing services in the local area, Wilson Roofing shares tips to get you started on the insurance claims process:
Take Pictures of Everything: Take photos of the damage inflicted on your roof and other areas of your home and record the date of the storm. You might also need to look for online news stories of the storm hitting your region to provide your insurance company with proof. Ask your contractor to provide a full report documenting the storm damage to your roof and an estimated cost of restoration.
File the Insurance Claim ASAP: Many insurance policies have limited periods on accepting claims, so file yours as soon as you can. Ask for an insurance adjuster inspection and ask your residential roofing contractor to be present during the process. Your contractor should ensure your adjuster provides a fair assessment of your roof damage.
Hire a Reliable Contractor: Avoid storm chasers; look for a local contractor with a great track record that will represent your best interests. Wilson Roofing can help you with all your roofing concerns. We have many years of experience helping homeowners restore their property after storm damage.
