BuildAligned Reviews How to File Roof Insurance Claims in Texas

Property owners in Texas know better than anyone how unpredictable the weather can be, and how damaging this can be to their property’s roof. Failing to replace your roof in a timely manner after a storm can result in leaks that can ultimately affect structural integrity, as well as cause interior damage that is both unsightly and expensive to repair. It can also cause your insurance company to deny future claims because of your negligence in avoiding replacement. However, filing a claim with your insurance company is a notoriously unpleasant experience, and you may be worried that they will deny your claim or that their offer of compensation will be unsatisfactory.

That’s where the experts at BuildAligned come in.

Working with a roofer who has more than 20 years of experience, and is an expert at navigating the insurance claim process, can streamline the process for you and even increase your payout. In cases where your claim is initially denied, BuildAligned knows the next steps you can take to appeal, instead of taking “no” for an answer.

BuildAligned works in Guymon, Oklahoma; the Austin metro area; the Houston metro area; the Dallas metro area; the San Antonio metro area; and Salado, TX, and surrounding areas. Whether you’ve experienced ice damage, hailstorms, foreign objects, or hurricane-force wind and rain, BuildAligned is ready and able to help with your roof replacement and corresponding insurance claim.

What to Do After a Storm

Once a storm has occurred that may have caused damage to your roof, you’ll want to call a roofing contractor out right away to assess the damage. A qualified contractor will be able to spot any “hidden damage” that might not be visible immediately. BuildAligned offers free in-person inspections to determine if you should file a claim. When it comes time to call your insurance company, BuildAligned is by your side throughout the entire process.

When the insurance adjuster comes to your property, be sure that your roofing contractor is on-site as well. After a storm, many insurance adjusters are very busy, and without an extra set of eyes, even the best adjusters will miss things. Since that adjustment is so important, you’ll want your contractor there to advocate on your behalf.

Results of Claim Status

If your claim is approved, BuildAligned will schedule a Work Order Meeting, where all of the details of your project are discussed and decided, including colors, products, upgrades, and schedule.

If your claim is denied, many property owners are unaware that there are other options they can pursue, including Reinspection, Engineers Report, Hiring a Public Adjuster, and Appraisal. BuildAligned experts are well-versed in when each is appropriate and can advise you on how to proceed.

Don’t Wait to Replace Your Roof

In many cases, damaged roofs can go unnoticed because leaks are not immediately detected by property owners. But storm damage is long-term, and a roof loses its water-shedding capabilities, leading to leaks. Claims must be filed 6 months to 1 year after damage has occurred, so it’s incredibly important to assess your roof for damage right away. When you’re ready to begin the process, you can call BuildAligned.
