Yes, the professional roofing company you hire can be a great ally in the process of making an insurance claim.
If a severe weather phenomenon occurs and your roof gets damaged, the first thing many people think about is to call their insurer for estimates. It may seem a logical step to take, but contacting your insurance company first is not always in your best interests. It may be best to contact a licensed Houston roofing company, because it can ensure that no insurance company will take advantage of you.
Just keep in mind that insurance adjusters work for the insurance company not for you and they are no roofing experts.
On the other hand, a professional Houston roofer will make a thorough and accurate inspection, assessing the damage and providing you with a written report – a document that can be used when you make the claim. Actually, there are roofing companies willing to send the claim on your behalf to your insurer, for a more accurate appraisal, and negotiate the settlement. This can be a huge help, considering that an insurance claim is a complicated process. Besides, you can get rid of the headache related to negotiation and arguing with insurance employees.
