Understanding the Roof Insurance Claim Process

JW Roofing Can Help You Navigate the Roof Insurance Claim Process!

Navigating the roof insurance claim process can be overwhelming, and it’s important to find a roofing contractor who can put your mind at ease. Quality roofing contractors hire professionals who are familiar with the process to help you navigate the roof insurance claim process like a pro. You might be asking, “How do I begin a roof insurance claim?” or “How do they work?” 

With JW Roofing, you won’t have to face questions alone. As local, reputable roofers in Dayton, OH, we aim to provide nothing but the highest quality of service and workmanship. 

Step 1: Assess the Damage to Your Home

Before any decisions are made, we recommend inspecting your property for any signs of damage—especially if a bad storm has passed through. Take note of any damage to your roof, doors, windows, gutters or siding as you survey your property. This assessment can help you determine whether or not you have enough damage to warrant an insurance claim. While it may be tempting to call insurance companies for roof repair or replacement estimates right away, this may not be in your best interest. Instead, the JW Roofing team suggests booking an inspection with an experienced local roofer.

Step 2: Book an Inspection with an Experienced, Local Roofer

A quality roofing professional can be helpful for a few reasons. First, they will be able to search the property and look for signs of damage from an expert perspective. Local professionals are familiar with the conditions in the area and know just what to look for. In fact, a roofing professional may catch potential hazards that are not obvious to the untrained eye. JW Roofing has the knowledge, experience and equipment needed to properly assess damage. With over 35+ years in the home improvement business, our team is happy to help determine whether your roof can be fixed with a repair or if the damage warrants a roof replacement. 

Next, a quality roofer will be able to assist you in reviewing your insurance policy. Having a discussion about your policy can offer insight on what may or may not be covered by insurance. JW Roofing has been serving customers in the Dayton area for years, and we pride ourselves on serving as an ally for navigating the roof repair process. We have offered to be present when insurance adjusters inspect the roof to provide additional support and commentary.* Having a roofing professional present may help you communicate any damage your home has endured and substantiate your claim.

Step 3: Communicate Proactively with Your Insurance Provider

While we recommend contacting a roofing professional before reaching out to an insurance provider, JW Roofing does recommend proactive communication with insurance providers. After all, your goal is to restore your roof to good health as quickly as possible. As soon as you are able to schedule and complete an inspection with our team, we suggest contacting your insurance provider—especially if the damage was caused by a major storm. In that case, there are potentially others filing claims, so you’ll get yours in ahead of others. The sooner an adjuster can come for an inspection, the sooner your roof will be prepared.
