Insurance Claims Tulsa – Is Your Roof Covered?

Insurance Claims Tulsa – Tornado season and severe weather is in high gear. With gusting winds reaching over 50 mph and heavy rain, the skies can start turning pretty quick which can leave your roof or home with damage.

Multiple parts of Oklahoma have been hit hard over the past couple of weeks, and various homes have had to file a claim due to storm damage.

The next question is: Is your roof covered?

Dealing with insurance claims can be difficult, but most homeowner insurance policies will provide coverage for roof damage that is caused by natural disaster. Even if your home has some ripped off shingles or slight damage, it might not be covered by your policy. There are many reasons as to why your insurance policy might not accept damage due from wind, rain or hail.

Some of those reasons could be water damage due from flooding or damage due from water leaking into your home from the roof.

Our insurance claims Tulsa process documents the damage to your property and provides you with an estimate for the repair or replacement with the consent of the insurance adjuster. Filing an insurance claim through our roofing professionals, we can verify the damage to your property.

Caution: Ice Dams

An ice dam is a ridge of ice that can build up and form at the edge of your roof. When snow builds up on your roof, the snow underneath will start to melt from the heat your house is creating. This meltwater will then run down to the eaves, and because eaves tend to be the coldest point on the roof, it freezes. Once this happens, meltwater will continue to run down the roof, and the ice will continue to grow due to the initial ice that froze in the eave of the roof. As the meltwater continues to drip with nowhere to go, a water backup will occur.

Standing water and your roof are never a happy mix. If you see this happening contact us right away for a free inspection.
