While your roof is designed to withstand the weather, it may suffer damage because of a severe storm. When this happens, it’s important to schedule an inspection with a local roofing contractor. They will examine your roof and perform temporary repairs to prevent further damage. Once your contractor confirms extensive storm damage, it’s time to contact your insurance company and file a claim.
In some cases, however, the insurance company might deny your claim, even though there’s damage on your roof. For this reason, you should consider getting a second opinion. Easton Roofing explains when and why you should get a second opinion for your storm damage insurance claim.
What Are the Common Reasons That Insurance Companies Deny Claims?
When you file a claim for roof storm damage, your insurance company will appoint an insurance adjuster to assess the damage. While the vast majority of insurance companies and adjusters are fantastic to work with and do a great job, some insurance companies downplay claims. It is possible that they may downplay your claim, which could result in your claim being underpaid or denied.
What Happens When You Get a Second Opinion for Your Claim?
If you think your claim has not been fairly assessed, it’s good to get a second opinion from a qualified roofing contractor.
