If your roof has been hit by a strong storm and needs extensive and expensive repair or replacement, the information that you need about the process can come from two sources: your homeowner’s insurance policy and your roofer. Your policy is the source that tells you about the type of coverage you have for roof damage, while your roofer is the person to turn to for information related to roof-related warranties and the repair process. Here are some important questions to ask your Dallas Texas roofers about the insurance claim process:
- The amount that you can claim – if your policy covers for the type of roof damage that you are faced with, you will need an expert for the damage assessment process. Ask your roofer if he has experience with this task and if he does, ask him about the steps of the assessment process;
- Filling in and submitting the claim file – ask your roofer for help with this part of the claims process as well;
- Negotiating – the amount offered by your insurer is likely to be smaller than the amount that you claim. If you don’t want to accept it, you can start negotiating the final sum. Ask your roofer about the professional arguments that you can use during these negotiations.
