Property insurance claims save you money
Property insurance claim in Charlotte can be quite a tedious process. For example, the insurer often needs full details before agreeing to cater to roof repair and restoration costs after a storm.
After the storm, one of the things you have to schedule is repairing your roof. You need experts to restore integrity to your roof. There are several steps that you can take for you to file a successful claim.
Document your loss
Your phone serves as a great asset during such times since you can take photos and videos to show any damage to the roof. The insurance company will likely send an adjuster to investigate, and the photos will come in handy. Get receipts for each item damaged in the storm to calculate their value accurately. When submitting an inventory of the items, you will have an easy time since you have accompanying pictures of their damage.
Contact the insurer immediately after the damage happens
Once the storm ends, you should call the insurer immediately and start the claims process. Having the insurer’s phone number makes things easy so they can visit your home as soon as possible. An accurate extent of the property damage will make getting you onto the priority list easier. Finally, having the problem solved fast can help you get restoration finances quickly.
Have a claim diary
Record keeping is necessary to retain evidence about your claims process. Have a claims diary denoting the date and contact information of whomever you spoke to. The diary helps track the date, time and issues discussed regarding resolving your problem. Organization around the whole process makes the claim process easier and gets you what you need.
Know the emergency services they offer
Emergency needs like getting water from your house or property or supporting a roof are always present after a storm. You should check the emergency services that your insurer offers to make your home livable. Insurers offering emergency services focus on dealing with clients’ issues that need immediate attention. Anything that risks your family’s safety deserves emergency attention, so you should contact the insurer to send expert help.
