When it comes to roofing problems and insurance, it’s important to know how to separate myths from facts. Here are some common statements about insurance policies and roofing problems and whether they are true or false.
- True: After a disaster, many insurance companies raise everyone’s rates. So if you’re thinking that you shouldn’t file a claim because you don’t want to pay a higher rate, you will essentially be paying for everyone else’s damage but yours.
- False: All new roofs are covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, builder, or contractor. The truth is, hail may be an exclusion to all this extra coverage.
- Truth: Many states prohibit the canceling of policies because you filed a claim. There is a common misconception that because you file a claim, you will just get dropped by your insurance company. Luckily, there are laws that work on the homeowner’s favor.
- False: Since you’re not missing any shingles, you don’t have damage. In all truthfulness, the only way you can tell is by having someone regularly check out your roof. Hail damage might happen years after a hail storm. Things like this would only be realized by a professional, so preventative maintenance is important.
If you’re ready to have your roof repaired or just checked out, give us a call. We can help you separate all the myths from the facts when it comes to your roof, doors, and windows.
