How to File a Roof Insurance Claim
Filing a roofing insurance claim is actually a really simple process. In fact, it only takes three steps to get from roof storm damage to roof insurance claim approval.
First things First: Get an Inspection
Before you file your roof insurance claim, you need to know what kind of damage your roof accumulated during the storm. A preliminary inspection can determine if you are even eligible for a roof insurance claim.
Next: Fill Out the Paperwork
Once the initial inspection is finished, you will get documentation of the damage on your roof from the roofer who completed the inspection. This should be mailed to your insurance company along with the paperwork to actually file the claim.
Finally: Another Inspection
Once the insurance company has received the paperwork, they will send an adjuster to your home to complete their own inspection. It is recommended that you have the roofing contractor who completed the initial inspection present for this meeting.
After the adjuster has inspected your roof, the claim will go into review. If it is approved, you will receive half the money upfront to get the repairs started. The Insurance company will give you the other half of the total repairs once they are completed.
