Weathering the Storm: How to File an Insurance Claim for Roof Damage with Professional Roofing Solutions

Has a recent storm left your roof battered and bruised? You’re not alone. Many homeowners face roof damage after severe weather events. But don’t worry, Professional

Roofing Solutions is here to help you navigate the insurance claim process and get your roof back in top shape.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to filing an insurance claim for roof damage:

1. Assess the Damage (Safely!)

Before venturing onto your roof, prioritize your safety. If the damage looks extensive or you’re uncomfortable climbing, take a look from the ground. Look for missing or broken shingles, loose flashing, or any signs of water intrusion in your attic. Give Professional Roofing Solutions a call and have us come out and assess the damage for you. All Assessments are free.

2. Document Everything

Take clear photos and videos of the damage from various angles. Include close-ups of specific issues and wider shots that show the overall extent of the damage. Don’t forget to note the date the photos were taken. If you have Professional Roofing Solutions assessing your damage they will also take photos to show you.

3. Contact Your Insurance Company

Promptly call your insurance company to report the damage. Be prepared to provide details like the date of the storm, the nature of the damage, and any photos or videos you’ve collected. Professional Roofing Solutions has software that we use to prove to the Insurance company that there is proof of the storm in the area.

4. Work with a Reputable Roofer

While some insurance companies may send their own adjuster to assess the roof damage, having a qualified roofer on your side is crucial. Professional Roofing Solutions has been helping home owners with Insurance claims for over 20 years now. We have a dedicated insurance team that does all the hard work for you, making sure your Insurance company gives you what is owed.

5. The Insurance Adjuster’s Visit

Be present when the insurance adjuster inspects your roof. Your Professional Roofing Solutions representative can answer the adjuster’s questions and ensure all the damage is accurately documented. We don’t charge to be at the adjuster appointment, it is just part of the process to help get your claim approved.

6. Review the Scope Of Loss

Once the adjuster has reviewed the damage, your insurance company will issue a scope of loss. Professional Roofing Solutions can help you review the offer and ensure it covers the necessary repairs or replacement. If we have any questions or concerns, we wont hesitate to negotiate with your insurance company on your behalf.
