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.

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.

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.

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!
