When it comes to insurance claims for your roof, there are many incorrect preconceived notions about how it all works. The first thing to remember is that calling your insurance company should only be done after your roof is [inspected] by a trusted company. Our inspections are free and doing this may save you a lot of money in the long run. Oftentimes people believe that they need a repair or replacement when in reality, they do not. If someone files a claim, regardless of whether or not there is damage, the insurance company will move forward with the process and some companies will even count this against you.
Next, after you have made sure that there is damage, it is time to get an estimate. Sometimes people believe they can give their insurance agency a quote and then find someone to do it for cheaper and pocket the money, but this is a form of insurance fraud. In order to get high-quality work, it is important that you seek out your options, find the best company for your needs, and get an estimate for the work to be done.
