1. Assess the damage After a Hail/Wind storm, you should visually inspect the damage to your roof (from the ground). Check to see if there are any issues such as missing shingles, hail, or tree damage. It is also important for you to inspect your attic and ceilings to ensure there is not any leaking, even if you do not notice any damage to your property you should still contact a licensed contractor to inspect your dwelling since they will notice potential problems that you may not.
2. Contact your insurance provider If you and your company of choice do notice damage, it is time for you to contact your insurance provider to begin the claim process. It is important to do this as soon as possible, as you do not want more damage to occur.
3. Claim assessment Next, your insurance company will send a representative to your home to assess the damages. The point of this is for the insurance company to determine if there is damage and whether or not your policy will cover it. You will want to have your contractor present during this inspection to make sure that there is not any damage left unnoticed.
4. Wait for the claim outcome Once all inspections and documents have been submitted, you should hear back from your insurance provider regarding your insurance claim. Be sure to keep in contact with them to ensure this is done in a timely manner. Rocky Mountain Roofing And Construction can help assist you with this process.
