How you begin the claims process?
This is probably the most common question, and it has a simple answer: with a roof inspection. Why attempt to do this yourself when contacting Premier Roofing and Renovations for a professional inspection will help save time and money. The roofing company is experienced when it comes to insurance claims and can provide an inspection and official claim documentation needed. Once this step is completed, you will want to begin the claim by reporting the damage to your insurance company and submitting the necessary claim documentation.
What kind of documentation will we need?
Insurance companies need evidence demonstrating the damage is real and requires professional repairs from a licensed roofer. It’s best to let professional roofers provide this evidence because they know what insurance companies require and they know exactly how to write out the documentation using specific language needed for a settlement to transpire.
What’s the timeline on all this?
Specific deadlines for claim submission are outlined in your policy, typically within a certain period from the date of the incident. However, there may be exceptions or circumstances where homeowners can request extensions for claim submission deadlines, such as delays due to unforeseen circumstances or additional damage discovered during the inspection, which should be communicated promptly to the company.
