A roof is a building’s shield. Damage occurs when an event, such as a storm or an impact, compromises a roof’s safety or ability to keep water out of the building. A failure to this part of a property can result in losses within the building itself. Depending on the time of year, you may not notice roof damage until after the snows melt or the rainy season arrives.
Roof Damage and Insurance Claims
Insurance companies closely examine the scope of a roof repair when you file a claim. Because it’s an adjuster’s job to save the insurance company money, he may try to limit the amount of money the company will pay to fix the damage.
When an event you had no control over causes seemingly minimal damage your roof, there is the potential for hidden damage that you may not see. Unless you have expertise in roofing, you shouldn’t handle a roof damage claim on your own. Work with a public insurance adjustor who is familiar with roofing claims to help you prove your case and maximize your settlement.
