Every home owner dreads being faced with an emergency roofing repair job, and with the winter weather, many homes are likely to become subject to storm damage during the more unsettled times of the year.

If your roof is damaged and you need to get emergency repairs completed, then your home insurance policy might cover the cost of repairs; follow these steps to get the process started:

  • Before making a claim, contact your Insurance company. Although you might think that you are clear on everything that is covered by your insurance policy, it is a good idea to check with your insurance company first so you can be sure that your policy will cover the work that needs to be done, and how much you will be covered for.
  • Call the insurance company as soon as possible after the damage has occurred and make sure that you have all of the information that you need to support your claim. Ensure that you take pictures of the damage if you are able to so and then you’ll have supporting evidence for your claim.
  • Depending on how your insurance company works, you might have to pay for the work up front, and send the invoice to your insurance company to pay, or the building firm will send the invoice direct to the insurers to pay, so consider this when getting quotes and choose a local company that is known for charging fair rates.
  • If you are going to arrange the repair work yourself, you’ll need to find a reliable local firm to come out and do a report that will detail all of the work that will need to be done and the costs involved etc. You might want to call a few different builders so that you can get some different opinions on what to expect and gain a better understanding about the scale of the job.
