Legacy Roofing Insurance Claim Experts suggest to protect your property immediately against further damage. Use tarps or other materials to cover broken windows and damaged rooftops. Keep the receipts of any materials/roofing services that you purchase to make these repairs so your adjuster can review them and reimburse you for expenses covered by your policy.
Will Insurance Pay for a New Roof
Roof damage may not be as obvious as you would suppose. The damage that occurs to your roof is less obvious and more insidious than it might seem. When an asphalt roof is struck with hail, the copper coated stone granules are removed. This is critical. These granules are the ONLY UV protection your roof has, without them you are exposed.
While the damage doesn’t appear severe, this constitutes damage to your roof. Even minor damage like this WILL cause your roof to age prematurely and needs to be replaced. This roof was paid for by a roofing insurance claim.
Here is a wood shake roof that appears to be pretty severely damaged. Believe it or not, the insurance company did not want to pay to replace this roof. This is a good example of a time where it pays to have an expert on your side. The roof was fully paid for by insurance. Even small dents like these indicate that there was severe enough hail to damage the roof. Here you see very severe damage. Even while it may appear to be obvious, it can be helpful to have someone meet with your adjuster to ensure that all items are paid for fully so that every damaged item is replaced. If you do not appeal to the insurance company within 180 days typically, if you have damage that wasn’t found, you are out of luck. Knowing what constitutes damage is very important, as you can see here, these minor paint chips were caused by hail. While they might not look severe, they are indicative of much greater damage to the integrity of the paint and it has to be repainted to fix it. This paint was paid for by insurance. Having a knowledgeable Insurance Claims Expert to verify your adjuster’s scope of work is important. (We may offer to paint your home in these circumstances, but this is something you will work out with our representative based upon your needs.)

Why is my insurance not buying my roof?
Insurance Companies are not buying roofs that are out of the storm damaged areas. Most Roofing Companies do not have a well proven training system. They believe by just playing the numbers and odds by sending uneducated “salesmen” out to soak up as many homeowners in any given Colorado subdivision.
