Akron, Ohio -

TK Roofing & Gutters, a roofing company based in Akron, OH, has released a blog post that provides guidance to homeowners on how to claim insurance for a storm-damaged roof. As one of the Akron storm damage roofing repair companies, they want property owners to understand how they can let insurance cover the cost of repair of a storm-damaged roof. Several factors need to be taken into account before knowing for sure how much of the costs will be covered by insurance providers.

Daryl Gentry, owner of TK Roofing & Gutters, explains, “If you do not have adequate coverage or any coverage at all for such damages, you could end up paying a hefty fee to fix the roof yourself. Even if your policy covers such repairs due to storms and inclement weather conditions, it might not include other forms of destruction like water leakage or mold growth caused by faulty installation or poor maintenance of the roof structure. It's best to consult with an expert in this field before making any decisions about what is covered by insurance and how that affects your situation.”

Understanding what is actually covered by insurance and how each policy works for various scenarios is essential to have peace of mind whenever a storm strikes and causes damage to the roof. Reading all of the fine print on the insurance documents is a good idea to know exactly what will be covered in case the unexpected happens.

An important step to take when planning to make an insurance claim for a storm-damaged roof is filing a claim. Many insurance plans will cover a percentage of the costs of the repair or replacement of the roof, but there may be some limitations depending on the plan. It is common for these insurance plans to require an excess payment before giving a payout. Filing a claim usually involves getting relevant documentation, such as photographs of the damage, receipts, and estimates of the repair work to be done. Claim processing could take a number of weeks, depending on the insurance company.

Several factors may affect the decision of an insurance company to cover the costs associated with roofing damage. For instance, location can play a vital role. If one’s area is prone to severe storms, the insurer may not cover any related damages resulting from extreme weather conditions. The kind of policy is also an essential factor. And, the severity of the damage may also be a factor. Minor dents might not be covered but major damages to the structure may be covered. Furthermore, if the home has not been inspected or properly maintained in recent years, the insurance company might deny the claim because of negligence on the part of the owner.

Daryl Gentry states, “It's essential to understand what kind of damages are covered by your insurance plan before any potential mishaps. If an incident does occur, document any evidence with photos and videos so that you can make sure you receive fair compensation for any repairs needed. Also, be aware that depending on the severity of the damages, a full replacement might be required - which could mean higher premiums afterward. Knowing when it's time to replace your roof can save you a lot of money in the long run.”
