Getting your insurance to pay for your next roofing project is a great way to cut down on your expenses. However, actually pushing through an insurance claim can be a tedious process, especially if you’re not familiar with how to go about your claim. Today, we’re sharing a quick guide to make it easier for you to work with your insurance provider.
1. Get a Qualified Contractor
Some insurance companies will think twice about releasing money for your roofing project if they’re not sure about the people who will be receiving the payment. This is why it’s important to make sure you’re hiring a certified roofing contractor like us. Working with reputable roofing contractors makes it easier to convince the insurance provider to approve your claim.
2. Contact Your Insurance Provider As Soon As Possible
It’s important to call your insurance provider as soon as possible. This is because major roofing damage that warrants more expensive repairs could be considered the result of neglect, which is a common reason insurance providers do not approve certain claims. The earlier the damage is caught, the lesser the costs are and the easier it is for your insurance provider to see that the problem was unintentional.
3. Arrange a Meetup With an Insurance Adjuster
Your insurance provider will send a representative to get a more accurate assessment of the roofing problem. When they arrive, provide as many accurate details as possible. Avoid making exaggerations or providing any kind of unreliable info to determine how much you need (and how much they will release).
After that, all you have to do is wait for the claim to be officially approved. You can now talk with us regarding the different options available to you depending on what’s covered by your insurance provider. Once the arrangements are made, our roofing experts will make sure that all the work is done while causing minimum inconvenience and within the schedule we agreed upon.
