Should You File A Roof Insurance Claim To Replace Your Roof?

Florida is no stranger to mother nature's harsh weather. As a result, there are many instances where roof damage presents itself due to weather events. If you've been the victim of a storm, you may be wondering what to do next.


If your roof was damaged during the storm and you have an insurance policy that covers roof damage, you may be able to have your roof replaced through that insurance.


However, it's important to note that not all policies cover roof replacement. Your policy may only cover repairs or other types of compensation for your home's structure or specific parts.


If you're unsure your insurance policy covers this type of damage, call your agent and ask them directly. They will be able to tell you exactly what provisions are included in your policy and how they can help you get back on track after a storm has taken its toll on your home and belongings.

Roof Insurance Claim Process

The roof insurance claim process can be complex and confusing, particularly when you are trying to get your claim accepted. To make the process easier for you, we have put together this guide with all the information you need to know about how claims are processed and paid.

Step 1:
If you have experienced storm damage to your roof, contact a local roofing company for a roof inspection.
Step 2:
If they find damage, they will help you understand the extent of the damage and what it will take to fix or replace the damaged item.
Step 3:
If you choose to file a roof insurance claim with your insurance company following the inspection, make sure to include images of the damage, your policy, and other pertinent information.
Step 4:
The insurance adjuster will visit your home to evaluate the damage, and you should bring your contractor so that they can provide more details about the condition of your roof.
Step 5:
When you negotiate the damage to your roof with the adjuster, they will give you papers about the accident. Please review them carefully and ensure your insurance policy covers most of the cost.
Step 6:
Once your claim has been approved, contact a roofing contractor to help you restore your roof.

    What Are The Signs That You May Have Storm Damage To Your Roof?

    Do you notice any missing shingles? It's fairly easy to spot because the missing shingle will have blown off the roof deck, leaving an "empty" spot on your roof. In the event of a wind storm, you may notice the lifting or creasing of your shingles. This is more difficult to spot from ground level, but often it will look as if the shingle has been bent, causing a crease.


    When the seal between shingles and your roof is compromised or broken, wind can cause the shingles to lift. If you notice or suspect any of these issues present within your roofing system, we can help!


    Our professionals are trained to spot storm damage, which can go unnoticed by untrained eyes. We know you want to avoid dealing with storm damage in your home or business, so let us help you identify it before it becomes a major problem.
