Checking for roof damage.
Determining if a roof is damaged can be deceiving, and misjudging what is really going on can be dangerous. If you suspect that your roof has been damaged by a recent storm, you should look for wind, hail, and water damage. Visibly curled shingles and loose tiles are good indicators of damage. However, do not risk your safety by attempting to walk on the roof to assess the damage. Instead, give us a call and we can send professionals to safely inspect it. Your well-being is our top priority and you are in great hands with our team.
Hire a certified roofing contractor experienced in hail damage insurance claims.
After a bad storm, you may experience roofers going door to door claiming to be experts. There are a great number of scammers that rely on homeowners to trust their word. When researching roofing contractors, it is crucial to know what to look for. Roofers that offer free estimates suggest reasonable prices based on the services provided are good signs of a trustworthy company.
Make sure your policy is right.
Wind mitigation: It’s worth your investment.
Before you file an insurance claim, first check with your agency to see if they offer wind-storm insurance. The process involves a simple inspection to confirm that your home was built with the appropriate methods to withstand a storm. Have the inspector look for things like gable end bracing, roof to wall attachments, and a secondary water resistant barrier. You’ll be pleasantly surprised with the amount of money you can save by obtaining a wind mitigation report. You pay a lot for your insurance—make sure you are getting as many benefits as you can.
Common insurance myths.
- Filing a claim on your roof will not raise your insurance rates. There is Florida state legislation and regulations in place that determine how rates can be raised. If you have owned your home and been with your insurance company for an extended period of time, you have likely paid for your roof many times over. You have the right to get what you have paid for, without being penalized.
- There are many companies that will tell you that you can get your roof replaced for free, but by law, a homeowner cannot profit from an insurance claim. Your deductible must be accounted for in some form, otherwise, this is considered fraud.
