Why You Should Call a Roofing Contractor Before Insurance Right After a Storm

Your insurance companies should recommend this to you if you call them first, but sometimes they do not.

  • You want a trained professional to come out to your home first before you call your insurance to file a claim and request an inspection. This is because a Roofing Contractor will tell you whether you have enough damage to even file a claim.

  • If you file a claim with not enough damage it will ding your insurance (and waste time).

  • You want a roofing contractor engaged before the adjuster meets with you to ensure that your home is not improperly denied for having repairs/replacements if there is sufficient damage.

You want to make sure the roofing contractor is local to your area.

  • A lot of contractors travel from out of state when storms hit and start knocking on doors.

  • You want a contractor that is local and also offers a guarantee on their craftsmanship. If shingles start coming off soon after work has completed, the contractor from out of state will be long gone, while a local contractor with a guarantee is not only accessible, but will work with you to resolve any issues as quickly as possible.
