Usually, your insurance premium will not increase if the damage to your property was storm damage. However, the insurance company might raise the rates for everyone in your area for what they deem a “CAT'' or catastrophic event. So, if you have damage and do not file a claim, it’s possible your premium increase could pay for everyone else’s cost to fix their roof, but not yours. However, you should always verify with your insurance carrier.
Typically, you have two years from the loss or from when you noticed the loss to your property. Check with your insurance carrier as some may have different terms than others. If you are unsure about the process of filing a claim, FBC Roofing will help you nail it down. We have years of experience working with insurance companies, filing claims, and getting our customers the best possible cost to install a new roof or make smaller repairs.
Your mortgage company requires you to have insurance on your home to protect their investment. Usually, if a claim is less than $10,000 and you are current on your mortgage, the mortgage company will sign the insurance check over to you to get the work done. However, when the claim exceeds $10,000 you will have to send certain documents to the mortgage company to have the funds released. Such documents could include a W9, contractor agreement, final completion documents, lien releases and any additional documents requested. Don’t worry, we have a complete office staff that handles all aspects of working with your mortgage company.
Yes, you could keep the ACV (Actual Cash Value) portion of the payment and not do the work. However, you should speak with your mortgage company first, and with your insurer. Your mortgage company may escrow the funds until the work is completed.
Also, your insurer may request that you complete the repairs to continue coverage. In addition, if your roof is damaged again the insurer will not pay for any previous damage. We have found that replacing the roof is usually in the best interest of the homeowner and all parties involved. Also, if the insurer depreciated the roof you will not receive the RCV (Replacement Cost Value) of the roof, which could be a substantial amount of funds, until the roof is replaced. Typically, homeowners have 180 days to complete the work from the time the insurer paysa claim, butalways check with your insurance company first.
The average roof replacement takes one day. However, if additional damage is noted during the construction process, an additional day will be scheduled to complete your project. The longest part of the process is usually working with the insurance company to process and handleyour claim, which usually takes 4-6 weeks from the start of the claim until you have all your paperwork in hand.
