It has been about a year since some devastating storms hit the midwest. Now is your last chance to address hail and wind damage if you haven't yet!
Erik touches on what could happen if you don't address the damage in this week's FAQ!
How Long Do I Have to File an Insurance Claim After a Hail Storm?
Average length of time you have to file a claim for most insurance companies is a year.
A lot of companies want you to have the work done or at least started by that year mark!
Let's say you've been busy this past year! It is very important you get your home at the least inspected.
There's 3 things that could happen if you don't address the damage.
- If your insurance is about to come up and it's time to renew, your provider may tell you that they will no longer cover your roof!
- Or, they may give you just an Actual Cash Value policy. This looses money for you int he long run.
- If you choose to sell your house. After an inspection, you may be required to drop the cost of your home by the cost of the roof. Now your home is worth $20,000 less.
Be sure to have your roof inspected soon to avoid these possibilities!
