Should I Call My Insurance Agent or a Roofer First?

Who to call first and why:

If your roof has suffered weather damage, you may be dreading that phone call to your insurance company. Dealing with insurance and making a claim can be difficult, tedious, and stressful. However, it doesn’t have to be. A roofing contractor can help you bypass a lot of the hassle, making contacting a reliable company like J Ferg Pros Roofing the intelligent choice.  

Roofing contractors can advocate for you.

A reliable roofing company can not only help you assess the damage but also contact your insurance company to act on your behalf. Your roofing company can serve as a middleman, providing a full report on the damage for the adjustor that the insurance company will send to investigate your claim.  

Roofing companies can work directly with your insurance provider, handling paperwork, correspondence, and estimates. This can give you leverage while filing a claim, a complicated process where one mistake can cost you a lot of money. The insurance agent represents the insurance company; a roofer is someone you hired directly, who represents you.

Calling a roofing company means bringing in professionals.

A roofer will conduct a more thorough examination than an insurance agent who is not as experienced in roofing issues. Roofing professionals can give you a more accurate appraisal of your damage, what caused it, and the solution. Roofers also know what insurance looks for in roof damage, such as age, proper installation and maintenance, and visible signs of internal and external damage, and can help you assess the value of your insurance claim.
