If you’re wondering if you’re roof has been damaged from the recent burst of spring storms, you are not alone. My best advice before filing a claim is to look at the roof yourself if possible or contact a trusted roofer that comes recommended to you or is an established company in your community.
When a roofing company comes to look at your roof, there is never a need to sign anything. Some, not all roofing companies will ask you to sign something. These documents are typically non-enforceable and it’s more of a sales tactic than anything. They want a commitment from you so when they come back for the next step in filing the claim, they can say: “But, Mr. Customer, you agreed to move forward…”.
Many times the roofer knows that there is only a slight chance that the insurance company will approve the claim, but would like that burden of proof to fall on the insurance company because it doesn’t affect the roofer in any way if the claim is denied.
