Steps in the Roof Insurance Claim Process
While the process of filing a home insurance claim feels overwhelming, the reality is, it is very simple. In fact there are only three main steps.
One: Get a Roof Inspection
As soon the storm has passed and you’re wondering if your roof was damaged and how bad the damage is, call our office and schedule a roof inspection. The sooner you get this inspection set up, the sooner we can get the process started and possible prevent serious damage to many other areas of your home.
Two: Fill Out the Paperwork and File the Claim
Once our roofer has finished the inspection, we will give you a report of the damage we found. This needs to go in with the form you fill out and mail into your insurance company.
Three: Get Another Inspection from the Adjuster
Your insurance adjuster will review the paperwork you sent in. If everything looks good, they will come out to your house and examine the roof themselves. It is highly recommended that the roofer who initially inspected the roof be present for this meeting.
Finalizing the Process
Once the adjuster has finished their inspection, they will review everything once more and approve or reject your claim. If the claim is approved, you will receive a check for half the approved amount to begin working on repairs. The other half will come once the repairs have been completed.
