Calculating insurance costs

You want to get your money’s worth when choosing any service, including contractors and roofers. When picking a roofing contractor, you want a company that will take care of all the different facets of the job. When it comes to getting your roof repaired or replaced, there is a lot more to the job than shingles and nails. Many roof replacements are part of an insurance claim, and insurance claims can be even more difficult than installing a brand-new roof!

When researching different roofing contractors for your roof replacement claim, you will likely see many different companies that advertise free claims assistance or help with insurance paperwork. Is this something you should leave to your roofer?

Should Your Roofing Company Handle Your Insurance Claim?

If a roofing company offers insurance claims help as part of the job package, you can and should take them up on that offer. If the company has a solid reputation, helpful reviews, and an established relationship with your local Better Business Bureau, they likely can offer tremendous help to help take the pressure of the insurance claims process from you.

Different companies give various levels of service when it comes to insurance claims. You want to find a roofing contractor that offers as much or as little help as you request. That way you can have your say if you’d be more comfortable doing some parts yourself can let them handle everything if you’d like. To give you an idea of the level of service, let’s look at some of the different claims help your roofing company can offer.

  • Expert advice on whether a claim is warranted
  • Meeting with insurance adjustors on site
  • Explanation of different insurance terms as they apply to your job
  • Filling out necessary paperwork
  • Agreeing to meet insurance quotes
  • Advice on materials that may reduce your premium
  • Help with depreciation

If that sounds good to you, you want a roofing company that can handle your insurance claim. While looking at different companies, look to see if they advertise claims assistance or give your local roofer a call. When you have a roofing company that will help you out with both the roof replacement and the insurance claim on it, you’ll find that roof replacement is easier that you’d think.
