You probably don’t know the ins and outs of your insurance policy– most people don’t. Did you know that in the case of a bad storm, all properties within a certain radius are eligible for a new roof? Whether your roof is old and worn or damaged from a storm, we have the tools to help you maximize your insurance compensation.
Not all contractors offer the same guidance we do when it comes to dealing with your insurance claim. We have our very own insurance specialist, Adam Winter, on staff to help you handle your claim.
One of the first steps we will take with you is an inspection of your roof to make sure it is even worth the hassle of filing a claim. Once we establish that there is a valid need for a claim, we will assist in the filing process.
It usually takes some work on collecting documented proof of all the damage that has happened to your property. If the damage occurred during a storm, we can assist in collecting the proof that occurred, through newspapers and other sources. Our most important tip to share is if your roof is damaged during a storm, take note of the date and time in which the damage occurred.
Our insurance specialist will then review your policy with a fine-tooth comb to make sure your policy covers the damage. Most policies allow a replacement if the roof is no older than 10 years old. After the 10 year mark, it is understood that the roof has fulfilled its minimum function and becomes the responsibility of the homeowner as any damage during this time falls under a lack of proper maintenance category. However, in some extreme instances, such as natural disasters, the roof’s age is not a determining factor in winning insurance money. This is why documenting the date and time of incidents is crucial.
If you want to be successful in your claim, it is important to be supported by a certified roofing specialist, like All American Roofing. We are the only ones that will be able to debate against your insurer so that you can obtain more insurance money. With our certifications, a track record of success in claims, and a good reputation in the area, All American Roofing is the best choice you can make for your home.
