File Your Claim

If you know a storm has triggered significant damage to your roof, and you have done all the prep work with your contractor, your insurance agent can assist you in filing a claim for a roof replacement.

Your agent will assist you in determining how to get your insurance company to reimburse for your new roof. If you delay too long, there is always a chance you will not be able to submit the claim. Some companies enforce restrictions on when claims can be filed subsequent a storm.

When filing a roof replacement insurance claim, always have on hand a copy of your existing homeowner’s insurance policy.

Widespread Issues When Filing a Roof Claim

Mismanaging the Insurance Adjuster

Since your insurance agent is the one who gets the claim filed, the insurance adjuster is the one you really need to have open line of communication with! The Adjuster is the one accountable for managing your claim and essentially getting you the money. The Adjuster is the one that is going to “Show You the Money”

Some missteps to avoid with your adjuster:

  • Using apologetic language while reviewing your claim. Even in a storm situation, implying you might have been at fault in any way may possibly seal the deal.
  • Hypothesizing about the incident. Always deal with your adjuster with the facts.
  • Agreeing to the first offer you get…
