A PROFESSIONAL ROOFER DISCUSSES WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE A ROOFING INSURANCE CLAIM
The most common causes of roof damage are hurricanes, storms, and high winds. If you find that you’ve sustained damage from one of these sources, you might have to file an insurance claim to cover the cost of repairs or replacement. In this article, a professional roofer, Austin Grant from Ram Roofing, will discuss what to do if you have a roofing insurance claim and how to go about getting the best possible coverage at an affordable price.
3 COMMON MISTAKES WHEN FILING AN INSURANCE CLAIM
- Not Hiring a professional roofer: Don’t even think about trying to fix anything on your own. Get professionals involved to assess the damage as soon as possible! Fixing things yourself, may seem like a good idea at first, but you might end up spending more than necessary on your roof repair.
- Not hiring the right contractor: if you choose an unqualified company that isn’t licensed and doesn’t offer fair rates or quality workmanship. Professional roofers need to be licensed and insured before they can legally work on roofs. They will know how to identify all of the different types of damage, which helps them give you a proper estimate for repairs or replacement later on.
- Not filing your claim right away: Don’t wait until you see water pouring into your home or if your roof is already leaking before you file an insurance claim. It’s important to keep detailed records and make sure that you report any damage as soon as possible so that you don’t run into any problems down the road
when it comes time for payment.
It’s one thing to be able to hire a professional roofer. It’s another thing entirely to find a professional who will work with you and your unique insurance claim requirements. Make sure to work with the right roofer!
