What to Do When a Storm Damages Your RoofBy Stacy Mellete
It’s prudent to deal with storm damage right away. Time isn’t your ally; procrastinating when fixes are need may compound the damage to your home and pocket book.
Storm damage may suddenly turn your life upside down, but do the following to restore everything to normalcy ASAP without spending a single unnecessary dime:
Call for Emergency Roof Repairs
First things first: call a specialist for emergency roof repairs. Sadly, not all roofers are trained to provide the essential band-aid solution in the middle of the storm. Many contractors would rather wait for the inclement weather to subside before helping you.
At Affordable Roofing System, we never sleep to respond to your emergency roofing needs. We have Rapid Roof Repair Teams on standby for your call. We’ll dispatch our pros to temporarily patch up the affected areas to keep things under control. Once the sky brightens up, we’ll return to conduct a thorough assessment of your roofing system.
File a Claim (When Necessary) Immediately
Waste no time to file a claim. However, consult our storm damage restoration experts beforehand to ensure you have a strong case. It also helps to review your homeowner’s insurance policy to make sure you’re entitled to compensation.
Plus, reporting a claim for uncovered damages would go in the Comprehensive Loss Underwriting Exchange database and could affect your credentials as an insurance holder.
Arrange a Time for Everyone to Meet Personally
When you file your claim, schedule a meeting involving you, our roofing specialist, and your insurance adjuster to talk about the matter. We provide you leverage on the negotiating table. Since we represent you, you can rest assured that we’ll put your best interests above anything else. Discussing the details of your roof’s wind or hail damage repair with the adjuster face-to-face allows us to voice out concerns with findings we find incorrect.
In case your claim gets denied for whatever reason, we’ll help you explore your other options until you get your rightful, adequate compensation.
