Tips for Filing Storm Damage Insurance ClaimsBy Stacy Mellete
Filing for an insurance claim following storm damage can be strenuous. Any missing information can disqualify you from compensation, leaving you to handle repairs or replacement on your own.
Fortunately, companies like Affordable Roofing Systems can help you with the filing process. Here are some things you should keep in mind when doing so.
Assess Storm Damage
The first thing you should do after a storm is to hire a storm damage restoration expert to inspect your roof. This will help you decide if your roof only requires minor repairs or complete replacement.
Document the Storm Damage
Proper documentation is necessary when filing for insurance claims and getting them approved. Make sure to record the date of the storm and to take pictures of damage sustained by your roof. We can help you document your roof’s overall condition as well as provide you with a FREE estimate for roof repairs or replacement.
Most insurance policies have a timeframe for you to make a claim, so you’ll want to make the most of it. Rest assured that we’ll help you file it swiftly so you can meet their deadline.
Always Hire a Reliable Contractor
Avoid storm chasers at all costs. They tend to show up at your doorstep right after a storm, offering their services at minimal cost and pressuring you to sign a contract with them. Working with them will only put you at greater financial risk.
