This can be a daunting task, however, especially for first-time homeowners. Fortunately, a reputable general contractor like Empire Contractors LLC can help you handle a storm damage insurance claim. We answer some questions about this process today.
Q: Who Should I Call First?
A: Since we’re helping you file your claim, we should be the first ones you call and not your insurance company. This is so we can properly inspect your roof and document the damage. We’ll also include a written description and photographs. By calling us first, we can help you determine the extent of the damage and if it warrants an insurance claim. If it does, we can help speed up the process and have your roof restored immediately.
Q: Can You Represent Me During the Inspection?
A: Yes, our professional inspector can be there when the insurance adjustor comes to inspect the damage. This is to make sure that all the important areas are included in the report so you can get the proper compensation. Your roofing is one of the most common problem areas listed, but you don’t have to worry, as Empire Contractors LLC can restore your roofing system to its top shape.
Q: Why Do My Roof Repair Estimates Vary?
A: Many contractors would come knocking on your door offering a lower repair estimate than the last. That said, it’s important to look past the cost before hiring them. Make sure all the estimates offer the same quality of labor and materials. For example, one might be offering to use 25-year shingles while another is proposing installation of 50-year shingles for slightly more.
