Roof Insurance Claims
Sooner or later, virtually all homeowners must face an unfortunate reality: roof damage. If you haven’t already, chances are you will have to deal with it at some point. Here in Arizona, it’s especially likely when severe monsoons are rolling across the Valley.
When your roof has become damaged, a common question we’ve seen people ask is whether you should pay out of pocket for the repair, or if it’s better to file a roof insurance claim…. The answer to this question is: it depends. There isn’t always a one-size-fits-all solution, and the situation will vary from homeowner to homeowner with the severity of the damage.
There are, however, a few things every homeowner should know about roof insurance claims.
How Bad Is The Damage?
If you think your roof may have been damaged in a recent storm, the best course of action is probably to get it inspected right away.
Some insurance policies have restrictions on how long you can wait after the damage has occurred and still have it be covered by the policy, so it’s best to have your roof inspected as soon as it is safe to do so.
Getting your damaged roof looked at quickly also nips any leaks or water damage issues in the bud before they can blossom into bigger headaches.
What’s Covered By Your Policy?
It’s incredibly important to know the answer to this question. And if you’re not quite sure, the easiest way to find out is to contact your insurance provider for the details.
Once you’ve had the roof inspected and confirmed that there is damage, you will be able to more accurately determine how much the insurance company will cover, according to the statute of limitations in place on your policy. From there, after you’ve filed a claim, the insurance company should send out an adjuster to come and assess the damage to your home.
Three Things to Consider With Roof Insurance Claims
Does Your Roofing Contractor Work With Insurance Claims?
