Get Your Roof Claim Approved

Are you looking to file an insurance claim for your roof damage? The good news is that most homeowner’s insurance policies cover damage to roofs caused by storms, wind, and hail. However, filing an insurance claim for roof damage can be a complex and overwhelming process. That's where Simple Solutions Roofing comes in. Our insurance claim specialists can help you get your roof claim approved quickly and efficiently.

Should You File a Storm Damage Insurance Claim?

After a storm, wind, or hail event, it’s important to assess the damage to your roof. If there is structural damage to your roof, it's best to file an insurance claim. Homeowner’s insurance policies typically cover storm damage to roofs. Filing a claim can help you get the necessary repairs to prevent further damage and protect your home.

How Simple Solutions Contracting Can Get Your Claim Approved

Filing an insurance claim for roof damage can be a challenging and stressful process. But with Simple Solutions Contracting, you don't have to go through it alone. We can assist you with filing the claim, communicate with the insurance company on your behalf, and help manage the claims process. We are experts in insurance claims for storm damage, wind damage, hail damage, and other types of roofing damage.

Why Should You Get Help?

Insurance companies are in the business of managing risk and providing financial protection to their customers in the event of unexpected losses. While they are obligated to pay out valid claims that are covered by the policy, they will often look for reasons to avoid paying out claims if they don’t have to. 

Insurance companies can deny claims for a variety of reasons, including:

 

  • The policy does not cover the loss - Insurance policies typically include specific terms and conditions that outline what types of losses are covered. If the loss is not covered by the policy, the insurance company may deny the claim.

  • Late reporting - Insurance policies often have specific deadlines for reporting losses. If the policyholder fails to report the loss within the required timeframe, the insurance company may deny the claim.

  • Lack of documentation - Insurance companies require documentation to support the claim, such as photographs, estimates, and receipts. If the policyholder fails to provide sufficient documentation, the insurance company may deny the claim.

  • Fraud - Insurance companies take fraud very seriously and may deny a claim if they suspect that the policyholder has misrepresented information or engaged in fraudulent activity.

  • Policy exclusions - Insurance policies may have specific exclusions that limit or exclude coverage for certain types of losses. If the loss is excluded under the policy, the insurance company may deny the claim.

Understanding Your Roofing Insurance Coverage

Before filing an insurance claim, it's essential to understand your insurance coverage. Simple Solutions Roofing can help you review your policy, understand what is covered, what is not covered, and what your deductible is. This understanding can help you make informed decisions about roof damage insurance claims.

Homeowners insurance, like other types of insurance, is designed to help you recover from unexpected losses. By paying a monthly or yearly premium, you enter into an agreement with your insurance company to provide financial protection in the event of a covered loss. The goal of homeowners insurance is to restore you to the same financial position you were in before the damage to your house occurred.

How Roof Claims Work For Your Insurance

When you file an insurance claim for roof damage, an adjuster from your insurance company will assess the damage and determine the amount of the claim. It is worth noting that if the assessor determines that the damage is merely cosmetic, rather than structural damage, then the insurance company may deny your claim. Simple Solutions Roofing can work with the adjuster to ensure that all damage is appropriately assessed and included in the claim filing, making it more likely to get approved.

Repairs for Storm, Wind & Hail Damage

Storms, wind, and hail can cause significant damage to your roof, including missing or damaged shingles, leaks, and other types of damage. It's important to have your roof inspected by a professional roofing contractor if you suspect that your roof has been damaged by a storm or other severe weather event. Simple Solutions Roofing offers high-quality repairs, our contractors have experience working with all types of roofing materials and can restore your roof to its pre-damage condition.

Our Claim Specialists Can Manage The Insurance Process

  • Will filing a homeowner’s insurance claim for roof damage raise my premium or deductible?
    In the past, we've seen that filing a homeowner’s insurance claim for roof damage may result in an increase in premiums for that location, but it depends on the specifics of your policy coverage and the claim. The amount of the premium increase will depend on several factors determined by the insurance company, but may include the amount of the claim, roof age, and the type of roof damage. With everything we recommend speaking to your insurance company directly since we do not speak on their behalf. While it's common for homeowners to file one or two roof insurance claims over a 10-year period. To help avoid issues, it's important to only file claims for roofing damage and events that are covered by your insurance policy that cannot be repaired on your own. By doing so, it should result maintaining a good claims history and avoiding any negative experiences with mitigation.

  • Is home insurance different than roof insurance?
    Home insurance and roof insurance are typically not separate types of insurance policies. Instead, roof damage is typically covered under your standard homeowner’s insurance policy.

Simple Solutions can assist you with inspection reports and pictures during your claims process, as you work with your insurance company. We can also ensure that the necessary roof repairs are performed when covered by your policy.
  • What does my deductible mean?
    A deductible is the amount of money you are responsible for paying out of pocket before an insurance policy begins to cover the cost of damages or losses. For example, if your roof insurance policy has a $1,000 deductible and your roof is damaged in a storm, you will need to pay the first $1,000 of the repair costs before your insurance policy will cover any additional costs. The amount of your deductible is typically set when you purchase your insurance policy, and it can vary depending on the specifics of your policy and the insurance company you are working with. A higher deductible might lower your insurance premium, but it can also mean that you will have to pay more out of pocket in the event of a filing claim.
