Roof Insurance Claims

Roof Insurance Claims

Revival Roofing specializes in roof related insurance claims assistance. From accident or weather-related storm damage to new roof replacement, our team will be your advocate through the entire insurance process.

Accident and Storm Damage Roof Insurance Claims

Hail, wind and storm damage is considered an insurance loss on your homeowner's policy.
Most insurance companies will pay the entire cost, less your deductible, for replacing the roof if it is damaged. The claim is also considered a natural disaster and does not count against you for future rate increases.

Our Roofing Insurance Claims Process

1. Schedule An Inspection
One of our project managers will come out to your property and conduct a thorough inspection. We will document the damage, run diagnostics, tests, and take plenty of photographs and video so that you can build a solid case for the proper repairs (or roof replacement if applicable) needed.
2. Emergency / Temporary Repairs
We will make any emergency or temporary repairs to your home, if needed, in order to protect from further damage. It is the responsibility of the homeowner to do this, but you should save the receipts which can be turned in for reimbursement from your insurance company, later.
3. Contact Insurance Company
Once you receive a document estimate, you should contact your insurance company. Let us know when the adjuster is scheduled to come inspect your property. We will meet with you and the adjuster to be an advocate for you and to answer questions and point out any areas of damage and concern.
4. Finalize the Estimate
We will review the adjusters scope of work and ensure all damage is fairly evaluated and reported accurately. Then, we will match our estimate and contract to the work specified in the insurance adjusters report, including any supplements that may need to be added if the insurance adjuster missed something.
5. Approve the Job
Once everything has been agreed to with the insurance company, you can sign the contract and approve the work to be completed. On your behalf, we will fax or overnight a signed copy of the contract for the job to your insurance company. Next, we will schedule a start date for your repairs / replacement.
6. Payments & Paperwork
If you have a mortgage on the property, the insurance settlement check will be made out to you and the mortgage lender. This is done to ensure the necessary repairs are made to the property. We provide our FedEx account number for you to overnight the check to the mortgage company for endorsement.

Legally, it is not possible to avoid paying your deductible. There are roofing contractors who are willing to work with property owners to submit falsified invoices. However, doing so is insurance fraud. Please don't ask us to do this.

If a roofing contractor offers or solicits this as an option for you, you should report them and find another roofing contractor.

In a hailstorm, most hail that hits your roof and house may be too small to cause any damage. However, a percentage of the hail may be large or irregularly shaped, which can cause severe damage that may not be readily apparent and may not start to leaking for some time. It's best to have your roof inspected by a state licensed roofing contractor to determine if you need to file an insurance claim and have an insurance adjuster assess the total amount of damage incurred.

There are two reasons that the insurance companies hold some money back.

The first reason is to make sure that you get the work done. Past experience has shown them that, if they give the customer all the money up front, many people end up spending it on something else.

The second reason is that they wish to make sure that you pay your full deductible. The insurance companies reason that, if you are given all the money to begin with, many people would naturally try to find a contractor who would perform the job for the dollar amount in hand. By holding a retainage amount, they can adjust the amount of the final payout based on the roofing contractor's invoice, thus assuring that the customer does pay the deductible.

Yes. Most all home owners policies cover full replacement value. The first check the insurance company gives you is the Actual Value (AV); what the roof is worth today with it's useful remaining life. The money that was withheld is call the depreciation, or technically, the Replacement Value (RV) and will be paid to you when the work is completed or most times upon the submission of a signed contract with a licensed contractor for the work specified in the insurance adjusters summary report.

When most people look at their insurance paperwork they are confused, because they think the insurance company deducted their deductible from the money the insurance company has sent them. However, the deductible is the amount that the homeowner is responsible for paying directly to the contractor. The insurance company subtracts the home owners deductible amount on the paperwork from the total amount the insurance company allows for the claim, since the homeowner will pay their deductible directly to the contractor. The balance after subtracting what the homeowner will pay directly to the contractor as a deductible, is the total amount the insurance company will actually pay for the claim.

No two houses receive the same amount of damage in a storm. Your neighbor may have sustained extensive damage, and you may have received none. The insurance company will only pay for the actual damages incurred. If the entire roof was not damaged, unfortunately the insurance company cannot pay for the whole roof. However, if is it border line, it always helps to have your roofing contractor inspect the roof with your insurance adjuster to accurately assess all damage to the roof. Sometimes insurance adjusters may not be able to see all the damage if they're not able to walk on a step roof and photograph certain areas. Revival Roofing ensures a helpful presence to look out for your best interest and assist the insurance adjuster if needed with damage assessment, photographs, and measurements.

It is always prudent to get more than one estimate.

However, when insurance is paying for the work, the dollar amount of the estimate is not very important as long as it is equal to or less than the insurance company estimate. In all such cases, with Revival Roofing, you will only be paying your deductible, so your cost with us will be what the insurance company pays, plus your deductible. Therefore, your decision should be based on going with the contractor that you feel most comfortable with and whom you feel will perform the best job.

Usually this is because of something the insurance adjuster missed in the scope of work to be completed. We can almost always work something out with the insurance company. We will submit what is called a "supplement" with documentation in the form of pictures, measurements and paperwork. The insurance company will review the supplement and upon approval, send a check for the additional monies needed to make the repairs.
