With over 20 years of experience in the residential roofing industry, we know what it takes to work with insurance companies to get you the benefits you need. While the age of your roof won’t automatically disqualify you for a claim, it is important for you take certain steps in order to make the process easier. These include:
- Make note of the time and date of the storm
- Take pictures immediately after the storm
- Make sure the roofer you hire is not a “storm chaser” i.e., roofers and contractors who follow large storms in the hope of making extra money on homeowners who are trying to recover from disaster.
- Make sure you call in a local expert to work with your insurance company, this way you always have someone there on your side in case something goes wrong down the road.
Once you have this information and file a claim, an adjuster will get in touch with you to set up a time to perform an inspection. During this time, the adjuster will compile a list of the work that needs to be done along with the estimated cost of these repairs. Before you agree to any roof repairs, you should have your roofing contractor review the list for accuracy.
It is important to note that a trustworthy roofing contractor will never require money upfront, but will rather wait to collect until the depreciation is received. In this way, you can trust A Grade Roofing & Exteriors to be on your side. And that’s a promise you can count on.
