Filing a storm damage claim can be an intimidating process, but there are many ways to make it easier. Roof damage needs to be addressed as soon as possible to prevent further issues, and your insurance can help with the costs of repairs or replacement.
Today, we talk about three things you should know about storm damage claims.
1. Damage Assessment
Before you file a claim, you should check the extent of the damage to your home. Knowing the extent of damage can help you, your roofer and your insurance company determine what to do and how much the repair will cost. Assessing the damage to your roof can start from the inside or outside of your home. If the inspector opts to start inside, you can expect them to examine your attic for signs of moisture-related damage. Outside, they will inspect the surroundings of your home and look for granules or shingles on your yard and driveway.
2. Unseen Damage
Another thing you should keep in mind is that it’s possible for storm damage to be unnoticeable during its early stages. To the untrained eye, your roof may look fine, but it could have suffered damage from the storm. Only a roofing company can identify and address such damage.
3. Reputable Contractor
Choose a contractor with a history of excellent workmanship for your roof repairs. It’s also good if there are several positive reviews about the company’s services and professionalism. The roofing industry is filled with many contractors, but not all of them have the expertise needed for storm damage repairs. That said, go with a roofer that’s experienced in this type of roof work.
