The Reputable Local Roof Insurance Claim Company in Billings, MT

With Billings’s harsh weather conditions, it’s inevitable that homeowners must often deal with the reality of the devastating damage storms can do. Storm damage such as wind, hail, debris, and trees can cause minor or severe damage if the conditions are right. If roof damage, in particular, goes unchecked, further water or structural damage can occur over time.

Lucky for some, there’s damage insurance to help fund repairs. However, the claims process is not always that simple. Kirkness Roofing Inc. is your reliable and reputable Billings, MT roofer that has helped countless Billings, MT homeowners file insurance claims for roofing repairs. We’re industry experts that can help you solve your roofing issues and file successful claims. We have licensed and former insurance adjusters on staff to provide claim assistance. As roofing insurance can be quite complicated, let’s take a closer look at the process and how we can help.

The Process

Understanding the insurance claims process can help you improve the chances of a successful claim. The typical process that occurs when you file an insurance claim for roof storm damage is as follows:

1. ASSESS DAMAGE

  • A self-estimate of the damage is a good first step, but bear in mind that you may not be able to spot all damage.
  • Contact your local roofing contractor to further assess the damage as there is a good chance you as the homeowner won’t catch everything.

2. CONTACT INSURANCE PROVIDER

  • Once damage is identified, contact your insurance company to report the issue and begin the claims process.
  • Make sure to get in touch with your insurance provider as soon as you’re aware there is damage to your roof.

3. INSURANCE ASSESSMENT

  • Your insurance provider will then send an individual to your home to assess in order to determine if there is damage and whether your insurance policy covers it.
  • If you believe you’re being ripped off, make sure to contact a roofing repair company that can provide a second opinion on the damage.

4. FILE DOCUMENTATION

  • Once you decide to repair the roof, you’ll have to file documentation that outlines the repairs required. This documentation should also outline the person who fixed it, as well as the cost associated with the repairs.

5. WAIT FOR THE OUTCOME

  • Once you have filed all your documentation, you should hear back from the insurance provider in due course.
  • If you experience a delay in the verdict on your claim, it’s important to ask your insurance company for additional clarity.

Insurance Claim Tips

On top of using the right roofing repair company, there are a few other things you can do to help ensure your roof damage claim is processed smoothly. Here’s how you can improve your chances of a successful claim.

Document Everything

Successful roofing insurance claims require extensive documentation. It’s important to take photos of damage, repairs, and anything else that you may think is relevant to your insurance claim. Don’t take roof damage insurance claims lightly.

Act Fast

As with any insurance claim, it’s essential to get in touch with your insurance company as quickly as possible. Timely filing is the best way to set the record straight and ensure they are aware that damage to your home has already occurred.

Have a repair team on standby

Besides helping to prevent further damage, a professional roof repair team can help you avoid further technical questions and requirements from your insurance company.

    I would like to thank Jerome from Kirkness Roofing for coming out to inspect my roof-He was very professional. He showed me the pictures of my roof and explained what he had found. He explained I had some wind damage on the shingles but … More no hail damage. My shingles are about 20 some years old but still good for a few years more. I also told Jerome I had a small leak in my garage by my chimney . Jerome went back on the roof to look at the flashing area and he told me there was some open breaks around the chimney. He said he could seal them for me at no charge so I said great. Kirkness I would like to say you have great people that work for you and if my roof does need repair in the future I would call you to install it for me. Thanks-Wayne Reese from Laurel, Mt.
