At Douglas Construction, we’re on your side. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’ve suffered storm damage and need help with your insurance claim.
Dealing with the aftermath of an Atlanta, GA, storm can be incredibly stressful, especially if your home sustained serious damage and needs urgent repairs. Dealing with your insurance company will only add to the stress, especially if you’re unsure how to handle roof insurance claims.
Our experts at Douglas Construction have dealt with hundreds of storm-damaged roofs and handled many roof insurance claims. Our help with insurance claims is just one of the reasons we have an A+ BBB rating, and we’re happy to provide you with the same outstanding service.
Damaged roofs can’t protect your home from the elements, which is why we offer our roof repair services within 24 hours of your call.
Most homeowners insurance policies cover storm damage as either an “Act of God” or common perils. Common perils also include snow or ice weight, high winds, fires, and acts of vandalism, many of which can also affect your roof.
It’s always a good idea to shop around when looking for insurance, making sure that it covers roofing issues such as storm or wind damage.
The insurance company will send an assessor to evaluate and document the damages when you first file the claim. They’ll use this inspection to determine the cost of repairs, which is the final sum they’ll pay out.
That’s why it’s always a good idea to inspect your roof after a heavy storm. Take note of any damage, such as raised or lost shingles, evidence of hail or tree damage, or exposed structural elements.
Since all of our contractors are GAF Master Elite®-certified, we’re also allowed to document damages, inspect the roof, and determine the cost of damages. Doing so allows us to provide you with a fair price and peace of mind knowing that your roof is in good hands.
Working with a professional roofer offers several advantages over working with the insurance company’s assessor.
Roof insurance claims require expertise and industry knowledge. Many signs of storm or wind damage are difficult to spot, and some adjusters may not recognize them, leading to lower claims and unrepaired roofs.
Most roofing contractors work with insurance companies all the time, and that connection can ensure a smooth and hassle-free claims process. Instead of getting frustrated by unsympathetic call centers and untrained adjusters, lower your stress levels by working with an experienced roofer like Douglas Construction.
