Filing a roof insurance claim is a trying and time-consuming process that will definitely test your patience. When you’re already dealing with extensive roof damage after a severe weather event, the added stress of going back and forth with your insurance company is the last thing you need. This is where your roof repair expert can come in to save the day. In today’s post, we explain why it is in your best interest to call your roofer before you call your insurance company.
Roofers Know How To Deal With Insurance Companies
If your roofer has been in business for some time, chances are that they have frequently worked with several insurance companies over the years. Local roofers often work with insurance companies so they understand all the steps involved and can expedite the entire insurance claims process.
In a lot of cases, filing an insurance claim may not even be worth the trouble. Having your roof replacement contractor assess the damage first and give you an accurate estimate can let you know whether or not filing an insurance claim is worth your time (and sanity).
Process Your Roofer Can Get You a Fair Appraisal
Your roofer can advocate for you and will negotiate with your insurance provider to get you the best possible appraisal. Your roofer will work directly with your insurance company so you don’t really need to do anything. You can just sit back, relax and wait for the check from your insurance company to come in the mail.
