If you experience roof damage and you carry insurance, the first thing you may have in mind is calling your insurer. However, you should at least consider that this may not be the best idea. And that the best idea is to call a Potomac roofing contractor first. No, not for repairs yet, but for an expert analysis.
Having a professional roofer by your side, you will not have to worry about gathering evidence about the damage, taking photos to use them in your claim etc. Your roofer will do everything and, additionally, will negotiate your compensation with the insurance adjuster.
You must also be aware that your claim may not always be solved in your favor; for example, if you fail to prove that your roof was maintained regularly, the adjuster may conclude that the roof was vulnerable ad that this was the real cause of the damage. In this case, you will likely lose the right to receive compensation. To avoid such a situation that could be considered inappropriate claim filing and affect your rates, talk will your roofer and ask them to help you determine whether filing a claim is worth it, in this particular case.
