Chantilly, VA, December 17, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The Sterling roofing contractors at Beyond Exteriors released a guide to help homeowners with filing their roof replacement insurance claims. Filing claims accurately and in a timely manner is imperative when a roof replacement is necessary.
Roof replacements are often required when a large number of shingles are missing or curling, there are damaged areas of flashing, your home is showing signs of flooding or water damage, or you experience ice damming. All of these issues point to serious damage that should be remedied as quickly as possible to prevent future issues. If you experience any of these events after an uncontrollable event, such as an intense storm or high winds, your insurance may cover the cost of the roof replacement. Filing a valid claim quickly can give you the financial support necessary to replace the roof as soon as possible, but many homeowners are unaware of the steps needed to file these claims. Following the proper steps can help increase the likelihood that your claim will be accepted and paid in a timely manner.
Homeowners should first determine what damage has been done to their roof. They can inspect the roof themselves or have a professional assess the problem areas. It is also important to document the damage with photos and written statements detailing the time and nature of the damage. Then, homeowners can contact their insurance agency to discuss their policy's coverage and submit a detailed claim, following the insurance agency's instructions. After the claim has been processed, homeowners can speak to a roof replacement contractor to explain the damage, the repairs necessary, and insurance coverage for the project. A professional roof repair contractor will be able to assist in filing the claim and safely replacing the roof.
