Contacting Your Insurance Company
Once you have documented the damage, reach out to your insurance company to initiate the claim process. Provide them with all the relevant information and answer any questions they may have.
Insurance Adjuster Inspection
Your insurance company will assign an insurance adjuster to assess the damage. The adjuster will schedule a visit to your property to inspect the roof and determine the extent of the damage.
Evaluation & Damage Assessment
During the inspection, the adjuster will evaluate the damage and assess whether it is covered under your insurance policy. They will determine the cause of the damage, the repair or replacement needed, and estimate the cost.
Claims Approval & Payment
If the adjuster verifies that the damage is covered, your insurance company will approve the claim. They will provide you with an estimate of the repair or replacement cost and the amount they are willing to pay. This amount may be subject to your deductible.
Hiring a Roofing Contractor
Once your claim is approved, you can hire a reputable roofing contractor like Ridgeline Roofing & Restoration to perform the repairs. It is important to choose a licensed and insured contractor with experience in handling insurance claims.
Completing the Repairs & Submitting Proof
Our roofing contractors will complete the necessary repairs or replacements according to the insurance company’s estimate. Keep detailed records of all the work done and invoices for materials and labor.
Receiving the Claim Settlement
Once the repairs are completed, you will submit proof of the completed work to your insurance company. They will review the documentation and issue the final settlement payment, which covers the remaining balance minus your deductible.
