Filing an Insurance Claim When Your Roof is Damaged by Hail: A Step-by-Step Guide
According to the National Weather Service, Colorado experiences an average of 13 major hailstorms each year, which is more than any other state in the country. If your roof is damaged in a hailstorm, filing an insurance claim is an essential step in starting the repair. The claims process can seem complex and overwhelming, leaving many homeowners unsure of where to start. All In One Contractors is proud to have helped hundreds of homeowners navigate the claims process. Check out this step-by-step guide on how to file an insurance claim if your roof is damaged by hail.
Step 1: Assess the Damage
The first step in the claims process is to assess the damage to your roof. If you’re comfortable doing so, you can inspect your roof yourself, but it’s recommended to hire a professional roofing contractor to perform a thorough inspection. They can identify all the damage to your roof and provide an estimate for repairs, which will be necessary when filing your claim.
Step 2: Contact Your Insurance Company
Once you’ve assessed the damage to your roof, it’s time to contact your insurance company. Be sure to have your policy number and the date of the storm handy. The insurance company will send an adjuster to inspect your roof and assess the damage. Make sure to provide them with the estimate you received from your roofing contractor.
Step 3: Review Your Policy
After the adjuster has inspected your roof, they will provide a report of their findings. Review your policy to determine the coverage you have for hail damage. Some policies have exclusions or limits on hail damage, so it’s important to understand what your policy covers.
Step 4: File the Claim
Once you’ve reviewed your policy and have a clear understanding of your coverage, it’s time to file the claim. Contact your insurance company and provide them with the adjuster’s report and estimate from your roofing contractor. They will guide you through the rest of the claims process.
Step 5: Schedule Repairs
If your claim is approved, you can schedule the repairs to your roof. Be sure to hire a reputable roofing contractor who can perform quality repairs. Your insurance company may have preferred contractors that they work with, but it’s important to do your research and choose a contractor that you trust.
