Storms can cause major damage to any home and unfortunately, repairing your home in the aftermath will require a significant amount of funding. This is where insurance comes in as they can help you cover the costs of the repair or recoup what you spent for the repair project. However, some homeowners are intimidated at the prospect of claiming a storm damage insurance. Thankfully, there is a way to make things easier for you.
Here, ARCH Exteriors, LLC, the pros in replacement windows installation, lists four tips you can follow when claiming insurance for storm damage, beginning with:
1. Document Everything – The moment you hear that the storm approaching your area can cause major damage to your home, make sure to document every part of your home before it sustains any damage from the storm by taking photographs. Once the storm has passed and it’s safe to go out, take another set of pictures showcasing the damage it sustained. That way, the claims process can run smoother with your photographic proof.
2. Review Your Policy – Once you’ve received the paperwork for your insurance policy, make sure to study it as much as possible. Learn what it does and doesn’t cover to understand it as thoroughly as you can. That way, any misunderstandings can be avoided and the claims process can run faster.
3. Work With a Roofer You Trust – Before you call your insurance company, make sure to work with a roofing company that you can trust. Have them come out to your home and conduct the inspections needed to strengthen your claims. Ask them for an estimate as well so you can provide the insurance company with a number of how much you’ll need to repair your home.
4. Act Quickly – Once you’ve documented everything and had your roofer inspect your home, act quickly and make your claim as soon as possible. This is because some insurance providers have a deadline on how long you can claim an insurance payout after the damage has been inflicted on your home and letting it run its course can cause you to miss out on a much-needed payout.
