Insurance Claims FAQs
The insurance claims process can be overwhelming, but the experienced team at ImproveIt! of Atlanta Roofing has your back. If your roof has been impacted by wind, hail or storm damage, we can help you file an insurance claim and get the compensation your project needs.
We’re experts when it comes to insurance claims, roof repairs and roofing system restorations, and we’ve put together a helpful list of FAQs to give you some insight into the process:
Q: Will my insurance company pay for a new roof?
A: Your insurance company will pay for damage that is the result of an act of nature or accident, such as a hailstorm, hurricane, tornado, falling branches, debris or other incident.
Q: Who should I call first if I think my roof is damaged, ImproveIt! of Atlanta Roofing or my insurance company?
A: First call ImproveIt! of Atlanta Roofing to inspect your roof and document damage, including a written description and digital photographs. We can help you determine if there is enough damage to warrant an insurance claim, and if there is, we can speed the process and quickly get your roof restored.
Q: Can you represent me during the insurance inspection?
A: Yes, our inspector can be on hand when your insurance adjustor arrives to inspect the damage. During the inspection, we can make sure all areas of concern are included on the final report and ensure you get all the compensation you need for quality repairs.
Q: How much money will I get from my insurance company?
A: The final determination of the value of the claim will be made by your insurance company based on the report from the insurance adjustor. Depending on the age of your roof, the amount paid may be less than the full cost of repair or replacement (due to depreciation). This figure can sometimes be negotiated.
Q: I got several estimates to repair my roof, but they vary widely. Why?
A: Before making a decision, make sure all the estimates are offering the same quality materials and workmanship. One contractor might propose using 25-year shingles, while another may offer installation of a 50-year shingle for only slightly more. Look over your bids closely and make sure you’re getting the most for your money.
