Red Rock Roofing offers some tips on how to file a claim with your insurance company so that help, and repairs can quickly be made.

Do Not Delay – Notify Your Insurance Company ASAP

Have on hand your policy number and be prepared to let them know the best possible way to get a hold of you such as your phone number and email address. Be prepared to give a detailed description of the damage as if there is a major catastrophe in your area, your insurance company will prioritize based upon damage assessment in your area. Take photos of the damaged area prior to clean up. You will be contacted by an insurance adjuster, so be prepared to set some time aside so that the adjuster can assess the damage done to your roof.

Do You Need Emergency Services?

Making sure you are safe and protecting your home from any further damage may require a bit of work. Consider if you will need protection from the elements  if your roof was severely damaged such as a tarp or other coverings. Whatever you need to do to take steps in order to prevent further damage, now is the time to do so. Will you need to seek shelter somewhere outside of your home? If you need to stay outside of your home be sure to keep all receipts for reimbursement.

Document Any Losses

Was anything else affected by the damage to your roof? Document everything that may have been ruined in the storm prior to throwing anything away. Taking photos and making a list is the best possible way to stay organized. Take note of any water infiltration or unrecoverable items that may have been damaged in the winter storm.
