We’ve all heard the saying, “A roof over one’s head,” and it truly encapsulates the essence of safety and security. In the La Crosse, Wisconsin area, mother nature sometimes shows her unpredictable side, from gusty winds to hailstorms, and these elements can put that roof to the test. If your home has fallen victim to such weather conditions, it’s imperative to understand the process of roof repairs and replacement, especially when it involves an insurance claim. At Ledegar Roofing, our expertise as professional roofers and in-depth knowledge of insurance adjustments help us guide you through this often complex journey.
Step 1: As soon as you notice damage to your roof, document it. Take pictures, make notes of when the weather event occurred, and any immediate damages you observe.
Step 2: Contact Ledegar Roofing for a professional inspection. We will schedule a time to come to your home, provide a comprehensive assessment of the damage, and suggest whether a repair or a full replacement is needed. It’s important to do this ASAP since our schedule will be filling up quickly.
Filing Your Insurance Claim
Step 3: Once you’ve compiled your documentation and scheduled an appointment with Ledegar Roofing, reach out to your insurance company to file a claim. It’s essential to do this promptly after noticing the damage. If desired, we can assist you with filing the claim to ensure you’re properly disclosing the needed information to the claims department. This may include roofing composition, roof pitch, date of loss, what’s affected, etc.
Step 4: The insurance company will send their adjuster for an inspection. At Ledegar Roofing, we recommend our clients have one of our specialists present during this visit to ensure that all damages are identified and adequately represented. We don’t have to be there, but it’s nice to have a local roofing expert on your side when working with the adjuster.
Reviewing The Claim
Step 5: After the inspection, your insurance adjuster will provide an estimate of the covered repairs. It’s crucial to review this estimate in detail with Ledegar Roofing. With our knowledge in both roofing and insurance adjustments, we can help verify that all costs are accounted for and that you receive a fair assessment.
Finalizing The Claim
Step 6: Once the claim amount is agreed upon, you’ll receive a payment from your insurance company. This might be a single payment upfront, or an initial payment followed by a recoverable depreciation once the job is completed.
Repairing Or Replacing Your Roof
Step 7: With finances in place, Ledegar Roofing will begin the roof repair and replacement. Rest assured, our team uses top-of-the-line materials and employs experienced craftsmen, ensuring your new roof stands strong against future weather challenges. You are involved throughout the process to ensure you’re getting the color and materials of your choice, and that will be covered by insurance.
Step 8: Upon completion, we’ll walk you through the finished work, ensuring everything meets your expectations and our standards of excellence. We’ll also guide you in any additional documentation needed to recover any withheld depreciation from your insurance.
Step 9: Submit all final invoices and warranties to your insurance company if necessary. This step is crucial if you have recoverable depreciation or supplemental claims pending.
