A major weather event has caused severe damage to your roofing system. A stressful situation, sure, but you’ll need to take control of it and get ready to file a claim with your insurance provider. No worries – this task gets easier once you know what to do.
- Read the details of your insurance policy thoroughly. Note that storm damage is generally not covered by the roof warranty, but by your homeowner’s insurance. The coverage you get from the policy will also depend on the type of storm damage your roof has sustained. Some policies, for example, exclude damage caused by hail or wind. It pays to know exactly what your homeowner’s insurance covers to better determine your next step.
- Document the damage. The extent of roof damage following a major weather event may vary, but you should take photos or videos of it just the same. They may prove useful when the damage warrants filing an insurance claim. Avoid climbing the roof yourself, however. Document the roof storm damage from the ground or from an elevated (but still safe) vantage point. If you want to have a more accurate assessment of the damage’s extent, turn to a reliable roofing company like Willi Roofing Services. Our trained and experienced team has what it takes to safely and efficiently inspect your roof, and determine its overall condition.
