What to Do Before Filing an Insurance Claim For Hail Damage To Roof

Schedule an Inspection Before Filing Your Claim

Has your roof been damaged by a strong Dayton storm? Are you considering filing an insurance claim for hail damage to the roof? Before you do, the experts at JW Roofing have a few words of advice. 

Our team of professionals have completed countless roof repairs in our 35+ years in the home improvement business. Throughout that time, we’ve come to find that it’s important to have an inspection before reaching out to your insurance provider. An inspection will allow you the opportunity to have the damage looked at by an expert before going through the insurance claims process. After all, filing a claim can cause your premiums to go up even if you don’t receive a payout.

What happens during a roof inspection?

JW Roofing actually allows you to book an initial inspection easily online. You can create a request based on category, service needed, and select a time slot that suits your schedule. During an inspection, one of our roofing professionals will come by your home to assess the damage. They will inspect the home for damage that may not be obvious to the untrained eye. 

In the event that you need to make an insurance claim for hail damage to your roof, our roofers can assist in the claims process by gathering photos to help establish your case.* They’ll also be able to point out potential concerns for you to plead your case to insurance. It’s important to document damage to your roof sooner than later, as doing so can increase your chances of being covered by insurance!

Why should I schedule an inspection first?

Scheduling an inspection before reaching out to your insurance provider has a few advantages. First, an expert will be able to assess any and all damage. In years past, our team has found damage that customers had not seen! Quality roofing contractors can spot issues that are not obvious to the untrained eye. 

Furthermore, an experienced professional can help determine whether or not you have enough to substantiate filing a claim. It’s important to keep in mind that filing an insurance claim for hail damage to your roof can cause your premiums to go up—even if you don’t receive a payout! 

Filing a claim: What to know

While you pay to have insurance, it’s always the hope that you never use it. If your home has been damaged and you are new to the insurance claims process, a trusted roofing contractor will be able to review your insurance policy with you. Discussing your policy with your contractor will help you better understand what may or may not be covered. Do you need help finding the right roofer near you? Our team has a few tips to consider. At JW Roofing, we aim to serve as an ally for navigating the roofing repair process for our customers.*
