If your roof has suffered damage due to an act of nature, accident or airborne debris, the cost of a roof replacement may be partly or fully covered by your homeowner’s insurance. ImproveIT! of Atlanta has plenty of experience working with roofing insurance claims, and we will work with your insurance adjuster to help you receive all the compensation to which you may be entitled.
Making a Roofing Insurance Claim
If you believe your roof damage may be eligible for compensation from your insurance policy, the following steps should streamline the process for you.
1. Have your roof inspected for damage.
Call ImproveIT! of Atlanta to schedule a roof inspection by one of our experienced technicians. ImproveIT of Atlanta is the only CertainTeed Storm Restoration Specialist in the State of Georgia. We will perform a full evaluation of your roof, documenting all signs of damage with written descriptions and photographs. We can advise you as to whether the damage is significant enough to warrant an insurance claim for a roof replacement. If you decide to move forward with the claim, our documented evidence will improve the chances of your claim being processed quickly.
2. Submit your Project Authorization form.
If the damage to your roof warrants an insurance claim, we will help you every step of the way. It starts by filling out our project authorization form, which gives ImproveIT! of Atlanta permission to discuss and work with your insurance company during the roof replacement process.
3. Bring in the insurance company.
It’s time to contact your insurance company to initiate a claim. An insurance adjuster will be in touch to schedule a time to come out and inspect the damage. As your general contractor, we will be there to assist your insurance company during the inspection of your property with our qualified inspector and review your adjuster’s summary for accuracy.
4. Begin repairs upon claim approval.
Ultimately, the amount of your settlement will depend on your adjuster’s assessment of such factors as the terms of your insurance policy, your deductible, the age of the roof and the estimated cost of the damage. We will help you through the entire process as your general contractor, and when the insurance claim and settlement process is complete, we will begin repairs.
