Being a roofer contractor and trying to get claims paid is really, really difficult, and one of the biggest pains of the job. Often, your team can get overwhelmed with paperwork, sales can slow, and perhaps worst of all, money can get left on the table and your team will have ended up working for free.
Check out these 3 tips to help you get claims paid, get them paid fast, and have less painstaking back and forth with insurance companies!
- Account For Every Line Estimate. Roofing contractors should focus on being extremely diligent when it comes to writing estimates. Failing to account for every line item can result in roofers ending up working for free. The best way to ensure this doesn’t happen is to have your estimate written correctly.

- Proof of Damage. Providing photos, videos, and any other information proving that damage exists is absolutely critical to writing claims. Your main focus when conducting inspections should be to get photos and videos proving that damage exists. Carrier adjusters do not have the proper training to spot hail damage, so often, such a burden lies in the roofing contractor’s hands.
- Get Familiar With the Process. Whether everyone else likes it or not, insurance adjusters often pass claim information straight up the ladder at their insurance company, meaning that people will be involved in claims decisions that have never even seen the property. By documenting damage properly and writing estimates correctly, you will be in a much better position to get paid in time and avoid working for free.
