Storm damage insurance claims can help you get your life back on track as quickly as possible after a storm. Before making a claim, however, you’ll need to know what to do so you can maximize the amount of compensation you get for damages sustained.
Here are a few tips for filing a storm damage insurance claim and restoring your home.
Do not delay
Homeowners wanting to receive fair compensation for roof repairs should know that delaying the filing of insurance claims will always lead to more trouble. Insurance companies tend to limit the amount of time for homeowners to file claims.
Be sure to act quickly right after a storm. Prepare to file a claim as soon as the storm passes.
Sometimes it takes a long time before contractors and assessors can come to check your home for damage. Leaving the damages alone might cause more problems, increasing the amount of money you’ll need for roof replacement or repairs.
Stop leaks temporarily by putting tarp on your roof. Prevent foundation damage by removing debris from your gutters. Lower the amount of heat escaping your home by closing holes on your attic. Do what you can to mitigate damages caused by the storm. Infinity Roofing Contractors, Inc. can assist with these tasks to help to minimize any further damage to your home, roof or gutter system.
Take photos and videos
Don’t be in a rush to clean everything up, especially if the adjuster and contractor hasn’t inspected your home yet. Make sure to take photos of every damage your home sustained. If you can, take videos while narrating what happened. Combined with photos of your home before the storm, these proofs of damage will help ensure you are rightfully compensated, allowing time for your roof repairs to be completed after you have documented all your damages.
