Filing a roof damage claim can be a tiresome job for those who don’t know the process. But you’re not one of them! You know it all!
In Florida, experiencing roof damage after tornadoes, hurricanes, and hailstorms is very common. These disasters are one of the major causes of many roof damages. You have no control over natural disasters, but you do have control over leaks and water overflows, which are other reasons for roof damages. You should know what your insurance policy states, and how you should document your claim, this is where public adjusters come in handy.
To file a successful roof damage insurance claim, it’s a good practice to assess the scope of the damage. There are many cases where the damage is not apparent on the outer layers of the roof but results in cracking, tearing, and destroying the internal membranes of the roof. It is common to see a roof not affected on the outside with multiple leaks, holes, and cracks on the inner side. A professional inspection of your roof is very beneficial to get fair compensation for damages. You need a roofing expert and may require a structural engineer to assess your roof. But, you don’t need to worry, we can manage it all for you!
