All too often insurance companies try to take advantage of homeowners by withholding information and/or denying their claims. Let’s face it, at the end of the day the insurance company’s main goal is to limit liability and to minimize total claim coverage expenditures. This is especially so, when the insurance company is a publicly traded company with shareholders to report on a quarterly basis.

Shingle damage from hail can be hard to detect, particularly if you’re trying to assess the damage from the ground. Even minor damage can allow water to get under the shingles and into your home. Always schedule a professional roof inspection after a serious hail and/or high wind storm. Another indication that your roof may have sustained damage is by noticing if your neighbors’ roofs are also being inspected. If they were damaged in the storm and are being repaired or replaced, there’s a good chance your roof was impacted too.
Remember, unless you’re experienced in working on a roof yourself, the safest way to inspect a roof after a storm is to have a professional roofer perform the inspection. They’ll have the expertise and equipment to do the inspection safely and thoroughly.
Not all roofing contractors are qualified to make a thorough inspection for storm damage. Less experienced roofers may miss important but subtle signs the roof requires repair or replacement. In contrast, a roofer trained to identify damage properly can diagnose issues in a way that’s in line with insurance company guidelines. That means you may have a better chance of filing a successful claim.
TIP: Use a professional, local company for your storm damage assessment. Most local companies will have experience dealing with adjusters that the insurance companies use in your area. Never underestimate the rapport that a local company can build up over time with the insurance company’s local adjuster.
This is essential! An experienced roofer will work with the adjuster to make sure your roof is properly assessed. For example, during major storm events, insurance companies sometimes bring in out-of-state adjusters to handle the additional workload. These adjusters may not be familiar with local building codes; a local storm damage roofer will be familiar with these guidelines and help ensure that your roof is repaired or replaced to code.
Keep careful track of all claim-related information, including dates and claim number. Also ask lots of questions to make sure you understand the payout process. Some insurance adjusters will write a check immediately after the assessment. Others may put the claim to review and then issue a check later.
An experienced roofing storm damage contractor will have the expertise to work with the insurance company. In some cases, the roofing company’s office can handle much of the paperwork for you, eliminating the stress and time involved in handling everything yourself.
