If everything goes well, a roofing insurance claim should be completed and your compensation should be ready in no time at all. The system, in theory, is designed to work like clockwork: you take your photographs and videos of the affected roof as evidence, you prepare your documentation and check your insurance policy to see exactly what it says about the type of damage that was done to your roof, and you file your claim to your insurer expecting them to evaluate the evidence and inspect the roof themselves before making their decision.
Unfortunately, a lot of insurance companies will avoid providing you with the compensation you deserve for all your contributions as per the coverage level you’re paying for. In fact, most of the time they will seek a quick settlement with a lower amount to try to make a greater profit, and sometimes they might even try to use certain legal loopholes that they may have crafted their policies to exploit in the first place.
To avoid such issues and get a fair chance to a settlement that will at least allow you to repair your roof without a problem, consider contacting a reliable public adjuster and a professional and experienced Houston roofer who can examine the roof right after the damage was done and work together with the adjuster to present a more concrete case in your favor.
