What does filing a claim entail?Getting your roof back to its original form can be accomplished in four simple steps:
First call Taylor Roofing for complementary inspection
If you suspect the most recent storm generated damage to your roof, give us a call and we will send a professional contractor to assess the situation. This inspection is done for free and if we don’t find any issue that will be the end of it. However, if hailstorm has caused damage to your roof we will file a report with your insurance company and thus start the whole process. There is nothing you need to worry about though; we will manage all the communications, talking directly to them to provide the details of the event, such as the date it happened, extent of damage and needed repairs.
We will set an appointment with you and the adjuster to evaluate the damage, answer questions and overall make sure they understand the situation and have filed it accurately.
Wait for the insurance adjustment
During this we will also take up on the needed paperwork. We provide the adjustor with an itemized damage report that correlates with their inspection, properly identifying the cause and extent of damage for their records. After that all is left is to wait for their approval.
Along with approval of the insurance claim, your insurance company will also dictate the scope of the job and provide a first payment. Then we schedule a meeting with you in order to purchase roofing supplies and timetable the project. The installation work will take either one or two days.
At the end of the process we will want the chance to do one last checkup with you to make completely sure we have met your expectations. If everything is fixed to your satisfaction, we proceed to clean up the space and run a magnet around the property to find lost nails that could have fallen. Back in our offices we will invoice the final payment to the insurance company, and the process will be complete.
