Did your roof get damaged by a recent storm? Fixing it can be expensive, but that’s why you should file for a roofing insurance claim. Naturally, you’d want to get the most out of your insurance, so here are a few tips from our gutter installation experts to help you maximize your claim.
Insurance providers don’t like it when you call late so they tend to approve smaller amounts when making delayed claims due to “neglect”. That being said, you need to get in touch with your insurance provider as soon as the weather clears up and you’re able to call them.
Get an Expert to Check the Damage
You need to call a certified roof repair expert right after notifying your insurance provider. This way, you’ll have a more accurate assessment of the damage done to your roof. A detailed damage report made by an expert will help you make a strong case for requesting a higher amount when filing for an insurance claim.
Negotiate With the Adjuster
Your insurance provider will also send an adjuster to set a specific amount for your insurance claim. However, you have to keep in mind that the adjuster will try to negotiate the amount in favor of your insurance provider. If you want to get more out of your claim, having your own licensed adjuster could help you come up with a better amount.
Avoid “Saving” Thru DIY
Some people make the mistake of maximizing their insurance claim by minimizing the expenses, usually through taking the DIY approach. This not only results in costly repair mistakes, but also puts you and your property in great danger. If you really want to get value out of your claim, spend it properly on certified roof replacement experts that can guarantee effective fixes to your roof.
