How to Handle Roof Damage from a Storm | Fairfax County
If you experience roof damage from a storm in Fairfax County, it can be an especially stressful time.
Navigating the complicated claims process with your insurance carrier can be an overwhelming process.
That is why we have provided some tips for the best strategies to handle roof damage due to a storm.
Where to Start
The first thing you need to do after a major storm, is to look at the damage done on your roof right away.
Have a contractor come by to inspect your roof to fully assess any visible or invisible damage.
If a storm has blown away shingles, promoted leakage, or cause superficial imperfections, be sure to take note of everything.
Call Your Insurance Provider
Next, you should call your insurance provider and ask to speak with your adjuster in order to best understand what is covered by insurance.
It is important that you call right away as some policies have a time requirement regarding how long you can wait to call after storm damage has occurred before submitting your claim.
After the damage, and throughout the restoration process, you should always take copious notes including pictures for your records.
Clearly stamp the time and date on each photo, or take video walkthroughs to capture every angle of roof damage and renovations.
Lastly, be sure to always have a copy of your roof insurance policy nearby so that you are prepared in the case of storm damage.
