When to Contact Your Insurance Company About Roofing Damage

A devastating storm has blown through your town and left a lot of wreckage as it went. Your property has sustained some damage, especially your roof.

You know your insurance will help you cover roof damage from a hail storm, thunderstorm, or tornado. However, timing is everything when contacting your insurance company.

If you are unsure when to contact your insurance company, you’ve come to the right place!

Should I Even Contact My Insurance Company?

The short answer: Yes!

However, before contacting your insurance company, it’s best to take a look at the damage yourself if you can. Be sure to document all the damage you can see with yourself using a digital camera or your phone’s camera.

Better yet, find a roofing contractor to come out and assess the damage before an insurance adjuster does. It may help you secure the fairest claim!

When Should I Contact My Insurance Company?

You should contact your insurance company as soon as you can after a storm has caused damage to your roof. Waiting may give your claim a bad look, which can lead to less of a payout for your roof repair.

However, if the damage to your property isn’t that significant, you may want to hold off. For instance, if you have a $1,500 deductible, and the damage to your roof only adds up to $1,000, it may not even be worth it.

When choosing this route, be sure to document every specific type of damage that each severe storm has affected and when, no matter the extent. The more straightforward facts you present to your insurance company, the more fair your claim will be.

The important thing to remember is to mitigate any loss that you can personally before contacting your insurance company.

Choose a Roofing Contractor That Helps With Claims

Sustaining significant damage to your home’s exterior in the event of a severe storm or natural disaster can be stressful. To ease the stress of assessing the damage and dealing with complicated insurance claims, you will want to find a local trusted roofing contractor to work with.
