Nowadays, people get insurance for lots of reasons: medical, travel, etc., but people should never overlook the value of getting insurance for their home, especially if they live in an area prone to strong storms. A tree could fall on your roof, or the wind could lift half your shingles. For such issues, it’s important to know how to file your storm damage insurance claim.
Willi Roofing Services answers several important questions concerning insurance claims after a storm:
What Should I Do if I want to File an Insurance Claim After a Storm?
Calling your trusted roofing company for storm damage inspection will help identify whether your claim is valid and true, and the damage was caused by the storm. The inspectors will conduct a full assessment of your house and take a look at the shingles, gutters and other exterior parts of your home.
We can help you in filing your insurance claim to make sure it goes smoothly and more quickly.
My Contractor Strongly Recommends a Roof Replacement. What Should I Do?
Never disregard this advice. Your contractor may think it would be best for your home because the storm has inflicted too much damage that would only worsen in a short time. The good news is that there’s a chance your insurance would cover it if you were diligent enough in securing it, but make sure storm damage repair services are performed only by your reputable contractor.
My Neighbor’s Tree Fell and Hit My Roof. Who Should File the Claim?
In truth, regardless of whoever owns the tree, the person inflicted with damage should always file the claim. However, if it’s proven that your neighbor’s tree fell due to lack of maintenance by them, you may be able to file an insurance deduction from your neighbor’s insurance company.
