How To File A Roof Claim

How to File a Roof Claim

1
Make sure to write down the date and time of the hail damage that resulted from this storm. If you were unable to take pictures to show the adjuster assigned to your claim, do a quick search online in your location to find news pictures of the hail that fell in your area. Save this information so you can show your insurance adjuster.

2

Contact Legacy Roofing for a free inspection and have us confirm the damage is from hail. When Legacy Roofing puts together the estimate, ensure we differentiate which damage is from wear and tear and which damage is from the recent hail storm. Also advise your Legacy Representative to inspect other items on your property that may have been damaged from the hail such as AC units, gutters, paint, windows, and screens. Choose Colorado’s Preferred Roofing Contractor with a good reputation in the event the company needs to return for additional work that needs to be completed. Ask if they are willing to be present when the insurance adjuster comes out to your home. We always have the HomeOwner’s Best interest during the inspection.
3
Investigate the specific policy and your state regulations to ensure that your insurance company covers code upgrades. It is prohibited in most states for an insurance company to cancel your policy due to severe weather-related events that lead to damages. There is no way to predict Natural Disaster, therefore we ensure we get the most out of your claim so this is not common the Insurance Company will revisit a claim for Roof Damage.
4
File the claim with your insurance company. When you call and speak with a representative, give them the date the damage occurred and offer to contact Legacy for pictures to send over as well as the estimates from the Legacy Roofing. The insurance company will still send someone out, but it helps that you are offering this information up front.
5
After you have filed the claim, Have your Legacy Rep meet with the adjuster at the scheduled time. If possible, have a representative from Legacy roofing come out to meet with the adjuster so they can compare notes. Once the adjuster has spoken with Legacy’s Contractor, they will provide you with the settlement amount at that time, or they may have to review the notes further.
6
Complete the work as soon as possible after your claim has been approved. If you are approved for the full amount, your insurance company will send you a check for that amount, less the deductible, so you can get the work done. Sometimes the insurance company may not approve the full amount and in this case, Legacy will need to dispute the settlement.
7
Cash in on any rewards or benefits Legacy is offering you. This could range from an advertising fee to place a yard sign on your property, or you could receive a referral fee from sending the company additional customers. It is vital that you understand the difference between working directly with the contractor for these benefits and receiving rebates and kickbacks. It is illegal to receive rebates and kickbacks and not pay deductibles.

Greeley Roof Specials

Legacy Roofing is a Local Roofing Contractor that is well known for Greeley Roof Specials. August Roof Damage
Replacing a roof is a fairly hefty expenditure. For that reason, people often put it off for as long as possible. Unfortunately, there are some circumstances in which you should replace your roof right away, no matter what, and whether you want to or not. Do you fit into this category? Here are three ways to know you need a new roof:

Dips in the roof. It is easy to spot dips in the roof if you back far enough away from your house and look carefully. Dips in the roof are exactly what they sound like: areas in the roof that are dipping below other areas. They are often indicative of either rot or water swell in the foundation of the roof | both signs that it is time to replace your home

Damaged shingles. Shingles that are curling up generally indicate that a roof has reached the end of its life. This is because it is easiest (and most likely) for shingles to curl when they have lost the entirety of their UV coating. You also need to pay attention to the amount of granules your shingles are losing. If it is an excessive amount, then that is a tell-tale sign that your old shingles need to be replaced for new ones. tear off my roof

Leaks

. You may be able to stretch the life of a leaky roof with repairs, but if you notice that the leaks seem to be larger, or multiplying, it is likely that you will need to replace your roof altogether. Keep in mind that some leaks are easier to spot than others. While a puddle in the floor is obvious, you also need to be on the lookout for discolorations on your ceiling. Any brown spots are indicative of moisture, which could be coming from a leaky roof.Thank You for visiting Legacy for Greeley Roof Specials.
