Why You Should Call a Roofer Before Insurance: The Right Response to Storm Damage

Feb 10, 2024

Roofing damage is no joke. Whatever type of damage you’re dealing with, the reality is that your roof is bound to no longer look its best, nor will it provide you and your family with the protection and performance you need. In other words, damage to your roof will keep it from carrying out all of its essential functions. So, what should you do about it? Your initial response may be to call your insurance company, but doing so would mean you’re skipping what could be a crucial step in the repair process. Here’s why you should call a roofer before insurance:  

An Experienced Roofer Can Provide a Fair Assessment of the Damage 

Before you jump right into filing a claim with your insurance company, it’s always good to work with a well-established roofing contractor first. That way, you can an expert’s assessment of the damage to your roof and feel better informed as you go into the claims process.  

A thorough, fair, and honest inspection of your roof can go a long way in helping you understand what to expect when you work with your insurance company. Not only will the inspection involve easy-to-see damage—but the trained eye of a trusted roofing expert will be able to identify any underlying damages or potential problems that an insurance adjuster might overlook or ignore. 

You Can Rely On a Trustworthy Roofer During the Insurance Claims Process 

Your partnership with your trusted roofing company certainly doesn’t have to stop once the roof inspection is over. You can also lean on your roofer during the insurance claims process. The results of the inspection will work to your benefit, as it will ensure you get an accurate claim filed with your insurer. Direct communication between your contractor and the insurance adjuster can help get everyone on the same page and make the process easier for all involved parties, too.  

What your roofer can ultimately do during the insurance claims process is strengthen your position. In addition to the communication they can have with the insurance adjuster, a reliable roofer will also help you by checking your claim to confirm that it covers all of the needed repairs. At the same time, your roofer can give you a full rundown of the situation with your roofing damage and let you know whether it’s safe to remain in your home for the time being. 

You Can Establish Comfort With Your Roofer Before the Repair Process Begins 

As helpful as it is to have an experienced roofer on your side before and during the insurance claims process, it also gives you a chance to establish a relationship with a contractor who can handle the roof repairs you need. As important as the claims process is, what ultimately will matter in the long run is the workmanship provided during the repair process. After all, you’ll want to be sure your roof is restored to its optimal condition.  

How you get along with your roofer and the work they do during the inspection and insurance claim side of the job should give you a good sense of the type of job they’ll do when it comes time for repairs.
