Have you ever given thought to what condition your roof is in? “It ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” right? Well, when it comes to your home’s roof, that could be costing you thousands of dollars.
In this blog, we will discuss the importance of routine maintenance.
See, there is a little-known fact to many homeowners: your insurance policy can cover the total cost of replacing your roof. I have Allstate, I am in “Good Hands,” or I am covered by State Farm “Like a good neighbor.” Why have I never heard that, you say?
Well, it is because these companies want to keep it a secret. After all, if you were on the cooperate board of one of these companies, would you want your millions of policyholders to know they can get their roofs replaced on the insurance company’s dime?
That is a big fat NO. Fortunately for all of you, many great companies all over the country are willing to take on these giants and get their clients what they deserve. The insurance claim process can seem daunting, but it is pretty painless when you have a dedicated professional in your corner.
Here are five simple steps to the roof insurance claim process (the good news is your contractor handles most)
At this point, you are probably wondering, “this sounds great, but where am I saving money?”
Well, here is the golden ticket… this brand new roof that you have just been approved for, this massive upgrade to the look of your home, this project that injects equity into your investment.
The only cost to you is your deductible. That’s right; you get a brand new roof, a 10-50K project, for the cost of your deductible!
For most American homeowners, that is somewhere between $500-$1,500, and we know that isn’t a pittance to most people. But it does pail in comparison to coming out of pocket for the entire cost of a new roof.
That free or cheap inspection offered by many roofing companies; could wind up saving you thousands.
Next time you think about cleaning out those gutters or encounter a roofing company on your door. Go ahead and save yourself thousands by conducting that routine maintenance inspection!
