The Insurance Claims Process for Storm Damage
Working with Big Bear Roofing to Get Your Storm Damage Repaired
1. Inspect Roof
The process starts with a roof inspection. Not all roofing contractors are qualified to make a thorough inspection of storm damage. Less experienced roofers may miss important but subtle signs the roof requires repair or replacement. At Big Bear, our roofers are trained to identify damage properly can diagnose issues in a way that’s in line with insurance company guidelines. That means you may have a better chance of filing a successful claim.
2. File Claim
If we determine your roof has sustained significant enough storm damage to warrant a full replacement through your insurance company, we will then file the claim. Once the claim has been filed, an Insurance Adjuster will be assigned to your claim and he or she will call to set up an appointment to come inspect your roof and document the damages. Your assigned Big Bear Representative will be present at the time the Insurance Adjuster is assessing your roof to ensure proper documentation and to answer any questions the Insurance Adjuster may have.
3. Receive Initial Payment
Once the assessment is complete, the Insurance Adjuster will prepare an estimate for you as well as issue your first check towards your roof replacement or repair. The Insurance Adjuster may either do that while still present, outside your home or will have these items mailed out to you.
4. Review Estimate
Once you have received your first insurance check along with documented estimate your assigned Big Bear Representative will meet with you to review the paperwork and to help you completely understand it, if needed. At this time, you will select a shingle. With everything being in order, we will then add your home to the production schedule. We do not collect your first insurance check from you until we have delivered all materials to your home, which is typically 1 day before your project begins.
5. Receive Final Payment
Once all the work is complete, we will invoice your insurance company for a second check to be issued to you. Your insurance company will never send us the check directly, we will pick it up from you once you have received it. From filing the claim to actually replacing the roof on your home, it will typically take approximately 2 to 3 weeks; depending on your insurance company.
