What can home or commercial property owners expect when they reach out to our team at (312) 439-0556 for top-rated insurance claim roofing? Are there any things a potential customer should know before they call? Those are all excellent questions and because the Roofing by Hernandez team is committed to customer service that goes above and beyond what Chicagoans have come to expect we’re here to provide a walkthrough of our process from start to finish.

Insurance Claim Roofing Starts When You Call On Roofing By Hernandez

The very first step in the Roofing by Hernandez insurance claim roofing process takes place before you do anything else besides discover the damage. You call the Roofing by Hernandez roofing team to schedule a visit at the soonest possible time. Of course, you need to think about your policy and whether or not you’re covered in this instance but having a roofing professional on-hand is even better because it allows you to get honest answers about the state of your roofing without committing to anything. Our estimates are completely free and that includes insurance claim roofing consultations. Call (312) 439-0556 before you call anyone else!

The Next Thing We Do Is Perform A Roof Inspection To Provide An Estimate

Once you’re made contact with Roofing by Hernandez, either by phone or via contact form, our licensed, insured and highly experienced insurance claim roofing team will arrive promptly to go over your roofing with a fine tooth comb to identify any and all damages suffered by your roofing. Whether by storms, hail or just high winds, whatever damages are present will be thoroughly documented so that you’ll have photographic and written evidence to present to your insurance adjuster when you file your insurance roofing claim. Remember that you’re looking to repair or replace damages caused by whatever your home or business experienced – not all the issues your roof may have had prior to whatever happened. It’s not worth it!

The Roofing By Hernandez Team Will Handle Any Temporary Roof Repairs

Knowing what the issues are with your roof after our team has completed their inspection, Roofing by Hernandez will speak with you directly to explain what we found any issues that you need to address in real-time so that more damage doesn’t occur. This may be a roof tarp to protect the affected areas or something more substantial but whatever we believe is necessary will be in your best interests and hopefully covered by the insurance company as part of your roofing insurance claim. Of course, we can leave this to you if you prefer but we always recommend letting our pros handle the work since they’re the best suited to the task – whether that’s a roof tarp or anything else.

Now It’s Time To File Your Claim By Contacting Your Insurance Company

After the Roofing by Hernandez team has had time to go over your roofing – the materials, the installation and any components attached, it’s time to start the insurance claim process with your particular insurance company.

It’s customer service like this that separates us from every other insurance claim roofer in Chicago.

After Filing Your Roofing Insurance Claim It’s Time To Meet The Adjuster

No one looks forward to dealing with insurance companies and their adjusters are no different. While many are great people, they still work for the insurance company and can be seen as working against your interests at times. That’s natural so don’t feel bad if you get adversarial when you think about adjusters making decisions about your home or business. But with Roofing by Hernandez on your side you don’t have to worry about dealing with them at all – at least not on your own. No, we’ll work closely with you and the adjuster to make the whole process a smooth one from start to finish. Not to mention we’ve done this before so you can count on our team to know what to do and when to do it to keep your roofing insurance claim on track.

HOA & Condo Association Insurance Claim Roofing

If you’re a homeowner in a homeowner’s association (HOA) or condo association in the Chicagoland area, you can shop around for the right roofing company for as long as you like but you’ll never find one that’s as reputable, as reliable or as experienced in HOA roofing and condo association roofing than the team at Roofing by Hernandez. And best of all, our teams have been specifically trained to work effectively in HOA and condo association environments. After all, this isn’t your run-of-the-mill roofing project since it’s governed by more than just the tastes and decisions of the individual homeowner. The HOA board will have a say too.

What Types Of Things Does The HOA Board Govern With Roofing?

This will all depend on your specific HOA or condo association but usually your bylaws will contain roofing covenants that dictate certain things that can and can’t be done. This will be somewhat different if you live in a single-family home or a multi-unit building as one has its own roof while the other is a communal roof. That means the decisions for one will be made by the homeowner with input from the HOA while the other will require an agreement of all condo association members to get started. Remember an insurance company is involved so who makes the decisions matters a great deal.

As far as the particular roofing covenants your specific HOA or condo association adheres to, it’s a good idea to find out the specifics before you get to far into the insurance claim roofing process so you’ll not be blindsided by HOA restrictions and guidelines you weren’t aware of like the following:

  • Maintaining Proper Documentation: Many HOAs and condo associations require all documentation relating to a project to be saved for recordkeeping purposes. This makes sense when you consider a condo association shares a roof in a multi-unit building so they would want a record of any work done to the building itself – the roof included. Some HOAs even require you to get roofing plan approval prior to getting underway. Best to check with your HOA board to be 100% safe.
  • Using Approved Roofing Materials: This may not seem like something that a HOA or condo association would be interested in but when you consider that some roofing materials are much better at repelling moisture or weathering damage than others. Actually, your insurance company may also have a say in what materials you use because many offer discounts for better, more durable materials. Roofing by Hernandez can help with this as we know roofing materials better than anyone!
  • Choosing An Appropriate Color: Yes, colors are important to HOAs and condo association boards because they directly impact the impression people have of the area. Most HOAs tend to only approve colors that either complement the home or adhere to a strict palette of options approved for use by the HOA or condo association. You have to be clear on this prior to getting started because some HOAs have stipulations stating you could be forced to pay to remove the offending color and replace it. You don’t want that and Roofing by Hernandez can help you avoid it with decades of HOA insurance claim roofing experience.

How Best To Deal With The HOA & Condo Association Insurance Adjuster

As your roofing issue is covered by your insurance policy – whether it’s your personal homeowner’s insurance or your condo associations building policy – you’re going to need to contact your insurer as soon as possible so you can begin the roofing insurance claims process. However, we recommend you reach out to Roofing by Hernandez first so you’ll have a licensed, insured and highly experienced roofer with you throughout the process. That’s the best way to ensure fair treatment from your insurer and the insurance adjuster they send out to your property.

Now it’s always best to know what to expect when you’re dealing with a company out to protect its own interests. And don’t be fooled by your insurance company’s slogans. They’re out to pay the least they can to get by because that’s just how insurance works unfortunately. So be sure you have the Roofing by Hernandez team at your side from start to finish. You can also follow these tips to stay on track to the claim amount you need.

  • Read Your Insurance Policy: While we’re hopeful that you did this when you first signed up for coverage, it’s not uncommon for people to skim it and miss out on some important elements of the coverage they have available. You’re best option is to read it thoroughly before you file your claim so you don’t try to make a claim on uninsured elements of your property or roofing. The pros from Roofing by Hernandez can help understand your policy as we’re intimately familiar with their details.
  • Assess Every Bit of Damage: You or your condo association members will need to properly assess the damage you’re making a claim on prior to calling your insurance company. You don’t want to leave it to the adjuster to make the call on the damages you’ve suffered so you need an expert on your side through the process – Roofing by Hernandez is that expert. We’ll help you gather in-depth information about the damages and include photographic evidence so the adjuster has no wiggle room when it comes to your insurance roofing claim.
  • Get A Roofing Estimate: Yes, this is pretty obvious since you’ll have to have a roofing estimate to show your insurance company that real damages have taken place. Of course the adjuster will come out to see for themselves but the estimate from a reputable, licensed roofing company is usually enough. It’s important to think about how many estimates you get because the insurer may focus only on the cheapest one at the expense of excellent workmanship. You’re better off going with a single company you know you can trust – like Roofing by Hernandez.
  • Keep All Communications: During any project where a contractor is interacting with your home, and definitely any project where an insurance company is involved, you should maintain firm control of all communications you receive. Keep them saved in a handy place so that you can refer back to them at any time you need to – whether before or after your insurance claim roofing project is completed. It’s too important a project for you to lose anything connected to it so save, save, save your emails, voicemails, receipts and USPS deliveries so you’ll always have them when you need them.

Ready To Get Started With Your HOA & Condo Association Roofing Claim?

Now you know what to expect when it’s time to file a HOA or condo association roofing claim with Roofing by Hernandez at your side – both before the project gets underway and after it’s completed. You’re all set with the information you need in-hand and the right team to handle the heavy lifting for you. So what’s the delay? Make the call to Roofing by Hernandez at (312) 439-0556 or submit a contact form today for a free insurance claim roofing consultation complete with estimate and recommendations. It’s the best call you can make when you need expert roofing assistance in your condo association or HOA – guaranteed!

Because Roofing by Hernandez is the top-rated insurance claim roofer in the Chicagoland area, we know that customers – both residential and commercial – trust us when it comes to the truth about their roofing issues. And that trust is even more important when homeowners and business owners call us for help with an insurance claim tied to their roof. These people know the insurance company is out to make a profit and that could come at their expense so we’re there to stand behind them and provide the expertise and the honesty they need to navigate the insurance claim roofing process.

To help even more than we do when called upon, we thought it would be a good idea to share some insights – some tips, if you will – into how to protect your property when you discover damage and how to file a successful roofing claim with your insurance provider. If you’d like more personalized assistance just reach out to Roofing by Hernandez at (312) 439-0556 or submit a contact form and we’ll reach out to you directly!

Tips To Help You Protect Your Property & File A Successful Claim

As the premier insurance claim roofing contractor in Chicago, Roofing by Hernandez is the perfect team to give you advice on how best to proceed when you have roof damage you believe to be covered by an insurance policy. We’ve laid out the 10 tips every home or business owner should follow when it’s time to address whatever roofing issues they have with their insurance company. If you follow these closely – and call Roofing by Hernandez right away – you’ll be fine throughout the roofing insurance claim process.

Familiarize Yourself With Your Particular Insurance Policy

It might surprise you to learn that most of the information you’ll need to file a proper claim can be found right in the policy itself. But you’ll never know that if you don’t take the time to get to know your policy inside and out. You’re paying for it even when you’re not using it so the company backing your policy works for you. Put them to use and find out all the nuances of your specific policy. Many people simply look at the headlines or bullet points without going through the entire policy and its details with a fine tooth comb. We get it. It’s not an interesting read but that’s where the policy company comes in. Make them explain it to you until you’re totally comfortable and you’ll be much better off in the long run.

Be Thorough In Your Assessment Of All Roofing Damage

One of the most important steps in the insurance claim roofing process is properly identifying all the areas where damage took place – both the obvious and the not-so-obvious. This is why it’s imperative that you call the team from Roofing by Hernandez right away so that we can assist you with getting to the root of any and all problems your roofing is facing. There’s no doubt that our team will uncover things you’ll probably miss and you don’t want to leave it to the insurance company to decide what’s wrong and what’s fine without a licensed roofer agreeing with them. Otherwise you could be in serious trouble down the road and not even realize it.

Get A Free Estimate For Repair From Roofing by Hernandez

This is pretty clear to anyone who has damage to their roof but we want to frame it properly to ensure customers know they’ll need a pro onsite to get the best results from the claims process. That pro should be Roofing by Hernandez because there’s no one better in these situations that our highly skilled and experienced team. We’ve been working with insurance companies all across Chicagoland for more than a decade so we know how best to avoid the pitfalls common to the process. Plus, our services are highly rated and our commitment to your best interests in unmatched in Chicago roofing – insurance claim roofing or otherwise. We’ll provide an estimate you can be confident represents the best course of action for your home or business roofing.

Avoid Getting Multiple Estimates From Different Roofing Companies

This tip most likely surprises many people reading this but let us explain. Yes, it’s always been assumed that you should get multiple estimates from different roofing companies to find the best deal from the best contractor. And that’s true when you’re paying for the roofing yourself but when you’re working with an insurance company oftentimes you’ll simply be giving them the cheapest choice available. Think about it. If you have five estimates and four of them are close and the fifth is far cheaper then who do you think the insurance company will choose to do the work. They’ll see that cheap price and pay only that so don’t give them the chance to work you over like that. Go with one roofing company – one you can trust like Roofing by Hernandez – and give the insurance company one choice and one choice only.

Don’t Delay When It’s Time To Make Your Roofing Insurance Claim

Here we have another tip that may seem obvious to most but it’s worth repeating to make certain everyone understands how important it is to make their claim as quickly as they can after the damage has been discovered. By calling Roofing by Hernandez, you make this much easier to accomplish because you have a team of licensed experts who can walk you through each stage of the process and get you right to the point of calling your insurer to make the claim – all without hassle or cost to you. See to secure your business our team goes the extra mile not just in the roofing services we deliver but also in the customer service we deliver to all the people who come to us for help with insurance claim roofing.

Keep All Of The Roofing Claim Communications From Your Insurer

When you’re dealing with any company – be it your insurer or Roofing by Hernandez – it makes sense to keep all communications tied to the project for as long as they remain necessary. In insurance claim roofing cases, we recommend holding on to all emails, text messages, receipts, US mail or voicemails that you receive from your insurance company and the adjuster. You should also hold onto any communications from your roofing professional – hopefully Roofing by Hernandez – so you can stay on top of everything that’s going on with your claim and the repairs or replacement it’s paying for. We believe it’s always best to have a track record of activity and this ensures you have that from the start of your roofing insurance claim to its conclusion.

Remember You Don’t Work For Your Insurer. They Work For You

One thing we can’t stand at Roofing by Hernandez are horror stories we hear from customers about the way they were treated by their insurance company during a claim. That’s not how things should be since you pay their salaries. Always remember that the insurance company is your employee in these situations. They work for you, not the other way around. Don’t let them back you into a corner or accept something you know to be unfair. Stand your ground. Be fair and honest but don’t ever let them take advantage of you. Or better yet just call Roofing by Hernandez at (312) 439-0556 and let us stand with you throughout the insurance claim roofing process. That way you can be sure you’ll always be treated fairly.

See If Your Insurance Policy Offers Discounts For Certain Roofing Materials

Believe it or not, some insurance companies offer discounts for customers who use certain roofing materials. Most would prefer their policyholders use the most durable and proven materials on the market so it might be wise to ask them if they have any offered discounts for roofing claims that use specific materials to complete the work. The questions and answers are free of charge and could wind up saving you money on your premiums for years to come!

Insurance Claim Roofing: Meeting with the Insurance Adjuster

As the #1 insurance claim roofing contractor for both residential and commercial customers across Chicagoland, the team at Roofing by Hernandez is dedicated to making the insurance claim roofing process as clear and unintimidating as possible for all those who have to face it at their home or business. In our efforts to make it more transparent, we felt it was important to walk you through some tips you can use when you meet with your insurance adjuster. Of course, we recommend that you call Roofing by Hernandez just as soon as you call your insurer – if not before – but we want to help you take on the adjuster on your own terms – whether we’re there with you or not.

Here Are 7 Tips For A Productive Roofing Claim Insurance Adjuster Visit!

Why will it help a home or business owner to know what to expect or how to deal with an insurance adjuster? What can the licensed, insured and highly experienced roofing professionals tell customers to make the process easier, smoother or more productive? Quite a lot, actually, so let’s get right to it and start sharing seven tips to get you through the process successfully.

Tip #1: Don’t Be Late For The Meeting – You Scheduled It!

We know this should be an obvious thing to most adults but we also know that things can crop up at the worst possible time. That’s why we offer 24/7 emergency roofing after all. But when it comes to your insurance adjuster meeting we recommend moving heaven and earth to be there on time and ready to go through the process. We also recommend calling Roofing by Hernandez at (312) 439-0556 so that we can be there with you at the appropriate time. That way you’ve got pros on your side fighting for your interests throughout the process.

Tip #2: Play An Active Role In The Insurance Adjuster Process

While we do recommend that you have our roofing professionals – the best insurance roofing claim team in Chicago – with you when you meet with the adjuster, it is vital that you stay involved in the process so that you never feel lost or out of the loop while the process is ongoing. We know that it’s easy to check out of something that can be, let’s face it, boring to the layperson but remember that it’s your home or business at stake and stay connected to what’s happening at all times. That ensures you never have a regret about the process once it’s too late to do anything about it.

Tip #3: Gather Every Bit Of Evidence You Can Lay Your Hands On

One of the most important reasons to call Roofing by Hernandez before you meet with your adjuster – aside from getting the temporary repairs you need to protect your home or business throughout the insurance claim roofing process – is to document all of the damages your roof has sustained. This is evidence you’ll use to prove the seriousness of your claim and the need for a specific settlement amount to cover the necessary work to make your property whole again. Again, the adjuster works for the insurance company ands they’re out to make a profit for their shareholders. That means you need all the evidence you can gather to get exactly what you need in terms of an insurance claim roof repair or insurance claim roof replacement.

Tip #4: Create A Damage Checklist To Go With Photographic Evidence

Once you’ve taken photographs, or better yet – let the licensed and insured pros from Roofing by Hernandez inspect the roof and its components, you’ll want to create an in-depth checklist that covers all of the damages uncovered by you or the team you’re trusting to help you. At Roofing by Hernandez, we have a custom checklist already created that we know meets with the approval of most insurance companies in Chicago so you’re best bet is to simply call (312) 439-0556 and let our team compile the checklist for you.

Tip #5: Be Prepared For A Lengthy Insurance Adjuster Visit

We’re not going to sugarcoat this for you – an adjuster visit can take some time to complete. The normal time for this type of endeavor can stretch from two hours to four and it all depends on the severity of the damage and the prep work you took care of before the insurance adjuster arrived to look over your roof. This is also why we believe having our team onsite with you during the adjuster visit is so important. We can literally save you time by guiding the adjuster to the issues and focusing their attention on the areas we already identified as the problems to address. We’re the roofing experts and the adjuster can use all the help they can get to get it right.

Tip #6: Be Polite, Be Agreeable, Be Firm. Don’t Be Combative

No matter how the adjuster appears to you, no matter how rude they seem it will do you no favors to be combative with them. They’re people too and if you push them hard enough they might make it difficult for you to get the claim amount you require to set your home or business roof back to rights. You don’t have to take abuse or anything along those lines but treat them with respect. You can be firm and stand your ground if you believe you have to but don’t start an argument that you can’t win – especially when the adjuster is the one holding the keys to your roofing insurance claim. Better yet, just avoid the possibility of things going sour by having Roofing by Hernandez onsite to deal with them for you.

Tip #7: Be Honest & Forthright With Your Insurance Adjuster

We know that 99.9% of people are honest when they deal with companies but sometimes it can be enticing to try to add pre-existing issues with your roofing to your insurance claim in the hopes that the insurance company will just pay it without blinking. But we remind you that while it may seem like a good idea it’s actually against the law to defraud the insurance company during a claim so think about that carefully when you file your claim with your particular insurance provider. We stress it’s never worth it to try to game the system so play it safe and call Roofing by Hernandez to help you make the most of a bad situation!
