Roof Damage / Roof Damage Claims
After high winds, hail, hurricane, falling debris, or other natural disaster damages your roof, you may be left wondering whether it caused enough destruction to make an insurance claim. Depending on your policy, it may be worthwhile to file a roof damage claim in Florida to cover your cost of repair or replacement.
Assessing the Damage Before Roof Damage Claims
To help determine whether you should file a claim, first assess the damage. While roof damage can often be hard to determine, as many signs are often unnoticeable, you may be able to tell right away if there is enough damage to make a claim. When visibly inspecting your roof, look for loose shingles (or anything out of place) and dark spots. Inside, check corners of walls, windows, and ceilings for water spots or stains that may indicate a leaky roof.
Regardless of whether you can see obvious signs that indicate repair is needed, contact your insurance company to ask them to evaluate the state of your roof after a natural disaster. If the damage is severe, they may ask you to secure the area to help prevent further damage. After you file a roof damage claim, contact a public adjuster to also evaluate the condition of your roof.
Why You Need a Public Adjuster in Florida for Roof Damage Claims
A public adjuster (PA) is an advocate for homeowners making an insurance claim. PAs act as a mediator on your behalf between you as a homeowner and your insurance company. They work diligently to help get you the maximum amount for your claim and to get you paid as quickly as possible. Insurance adjusters may undervalue, underpay, or deny your claim, but a PA helps make sure that all damage and cost of repair / rebuild is accurately estimated.
