Tips for Preparing Your Claim
Many homeowners and business owners are at a loss about what they should do following a severe storm. The one thing you shouldn’t do is delay. You must act quickly because most insurance companies provide a limited timeframe for filing a claim. Here are a few other items to keep in mind as well: Take steps to secure your property by contacting a local roofing professional. Most insurance companies expect you to take steps to mitigate further damage. In fact, they might not pay for additional damage that could have been prevented. Document everything, including taking photos of damage, keeping receipts for work already done, etc. Get estimates from local roofing contractors. You’ll probably need to submit a few to your insurance company. Have Cantrell Roofing meet with your adjuster during your scheduled appointment to make sure that the adjuster doesn’t overlook any damaged areas.
