How to Navigate the Insurance Claims Process

Strong storms can cause significant damage to your home, which is why it’s important to have insurance. However, filing an insurance claim after a storm can be a stressful and confusing process for homeowners. Read on and learn about how to file a successful claim with help from your trusted home remodeling experts.

How to Navigate the Insurance Claims Process

Inspecting the Damage

After a storm passes through your neighborhood, go outside and inspect the damage. You need to document the damage in detail, taking photographs ideally. Make sure to identify the cause of the damage.

If you need a professional to inspect the damage, we can help you. Our storm damage repair contractors are trained and ready to survey your property. They can properly outline the extent of the damage and the cause.

Calling the Insurance Company

It’s important to follow up with the insurance company promptly. One way to ensure a straightforward, stress-free experience is by having an expert guide you throughout the process. That’s why Colonial Remodeling has a field supervisor. Our supervisor can help you contact and negotiate with the insurance adjuster. They will help you navigate any further inspections by arbitrators if the insurance company rejects the claims.

The Restoration Process

Lastly, there is the actual repair work upon approval by the insurance company. Whether you need storm or hail damage repair, our company is ready to help. Colonial Remodeling provides exceptional repair services to bring back your roof’s former glory.
