What You Need to Know About Roofing Insurance Claims

Claiming the insurance for your roof that’s been damaged by things beyond your control (like a storm) can either be very easy or very hard depending on your contractor. There are lots of factors that will influence your insurance company's decision. 

In today’s post, Empire Contractors LLC, your trusted roofing contractor, walks you through what to expect in a typical roofing insurance claim:

Documentation Is King

After you file a claim, your insurance company will usually send an inspector to verify it. They will check if the damage you were claiming compensation for is something covered by your policy. At Empire Contractors LLC, we make sure everything we do for your roof is documented during our initial inspection. This is so when the inspector arrives, they will get the necessary paperwork to keep the ball rolling.

Read the Fine Print

Read your insurance policy in detail because not all insurance policies cover the entire cost of roof replacement. Your roofing and gutters expert, Empire Contractors LLC, says that most roofing insurance is prorated to the age of the roof or paid out on a depreciated value. You may have to pay a deductible, however, depending on your policy.

The Deductible

Speaking of which, the deductible is that part of the covered loss that the insured—you—should pay. The amount may vary and can be affected by the premiums you pay for the policy. In general, the higher the deductible, the less expensive the premiums.
