Insurance Claims

If you have experienced damage to your roof related to storms or other events it is important to work with a licensed contractor that has demonstrated experience handling repairs, holds roofing licences and knows insurance claims processes for your state. Below is a check list to help homeowners in case of an insurance related claim:

  • Confirm the contractor’s physical location and check their business history in your state or region.
  • Check to see if your prospective contractor is in good standing with the BBB and their licenses are current for the work to be performed.
  • Request proof of insurance from all contractors bidding on your project.
  • Request references from your contractor in your area.
  • Check to see if your prospective contractor is in good standing with the supplier of roofing products being suggested for your project.
  • Do select a contractor that is familiar with the Wind Storm Code. The WPI certification may be required by your insurance company after the roof has been completed for you to continue your coverage.
  • Avoid selecting a general contractor for a roofing project. Unskilled workers are not qualified to replace or repair your roof.
  • Dont let them work with your deductible. You lose control and any leverage in the event that there is a problem, they are free to do as they please on your roof and that is not going to be in your best interest.
  • Dont pay for work in advance of the project. There may be a deposit required to initiate work (especially for custom projects requiring specialty products), but typically will not exceed 10% of the total project estimate if charged at all. A reputable company will offer payment schedule based on project milestones.
  • Confirm that your project will have a forman or supervisors are being utilized for quality control. They are in place to assure that the job is being installed to manufacturers specification and according to what you and the estimator agreed upon.
