One of the most damaging forms of precipitation that you can experience is hail. It can cause significant damage to not only people but your roof as well. Some hail balls can be the size of a grapefruit in some regions of the country. When this occurs, there are going to be claims filed by homeowners that have had this type of damage. If you are facing a situation where you have had hail damage on your home, and you would like to file the claim for roof replacement, here is what you will need to do.
Contact Your Home Insurance Provider
The first thing that you will need to do is contact your home insurance provider who can give you all of this information. They will tell you what needs to be done, how to file the claim, and they will start the process for you. They will send out a representative to your location to take pictures of the damage. They will fill out the necessary forms, file the claim, and then they will work directly with you to make sure that you find a contractor that can repair the damage.
Is This An Easy Process?
This is a very easy process that you can go through. It’s as simple as making a call. There might be forms that you have to fill out online, but other than that, they tried to make this as painless as possible for all of the people paying for their services. If you have not been able to file your claim for a few days, there is no problem with the delay. They will make sure that everything moves forward as quickly as possible. As soon as they have filed the claim, it will take a few days to get the money distributed to you so that you can hire a contractor to do the repairs.
Will This Increase Your Insurance Premiums?
In most cases, this is going to increase your insurance premiums. The insurance companies need to make money back in some way. Although they will not be outrageously high, you are going to notice a definite difference in the cost of your insurance for a limited period. There is also a deductible that you will have to pay in most cases. The process can begin once that has been paid. Depending on the insurance provider that you are working with, it will either go through in a couple of days, or it could take as long as a week before you can get the money to pay the contractors.
Hail damage is something that needs to be repaired as soon as possible. You can have holes coming through your roof. If that is the case, you will want to cover that up if it is going to be raining or hailing in the near future. You will want to do this until the contractors can come to complete the repairs. The repairs themselves can be done in a couple of days, but they do have to wait until the weather is clear enough for them to complete the project. Working with your insurance provider for roof replacement purposes is typically very easy, something that can be started with the simple phone call.
