What if my roof is damaged and I do not realize it until months later?
While wind and hail damage can often be detected by missing shingles or leaking roofs immediately after the storm, sometimes it can take many weeks or months after the storm to realize the damage. In these cases, you should get an expert’s opinion on the extent of the damages.
Do I have to get three estimates before choosing a contractor to fix my roof?
No you don’t. Most all policies are replacement cost policies, which means your insurance company will pay you the cost to replace your roof even if you are only get one estimate. They might encourage you to get three estimates, but it is not necessary. Be sure that you call licensed and bonded professionals that can produce local references that are at least one year old.
Can I fix it myself?
While some minor repairs can be done by the DIY homeowner, if you want to get the full Replacement Cost Value (RCV), including the depreciation, then you will have to hire a licensed contractor. The Actual Cash Value (ACV) is all you will get from the insurance company, if you do it yourself.
