Roofing contractors and insurance companies are working diligently to service Florida residents, as quickly as possible.
If you have filed a claim to have your roof replaced, you may have to wait until after Florida’s rainy season is over to have it completed. But, what if your roof is actively leaking water? Are you supposed to wait for the rainy season to end and watch your home take on more damage? Absolutely not.
Learn why it is your fiduciary responsibility to halt further damage to your home and why your insurance company WILL pay for an emergency or immediate repair AND your replacement after the rainy season has passed.
Will an insurance company pay for roof repair and replacement?
Insurance companies will pay for roof repairs if those repairs are necessary to mitigate further damage. They would be grateful that the insured (homeowner or property manager) exercised their fiduciary responsibility to stop further damage from running up the price of the claim. Such repairs would be added to the claim amount. If the insured’s deductible is less than the final claim amount, the insurance company will reimburse for repairs and replacement, if applicable.
What is the insurance supplement process?
An insurance supplement process is when unforeseen or unknown items are encountered during the recovery process triggering a change is pricing. Supplements could provide a credit or a charge to adjust the final claim amount.
Can an insurance claim be reopened?
Claims can be reopened if additional damages are found within the statute of limitations time frame. Contact your insurance provider to see learn what the statue of limitations timeframe is on your roofing project.
