    Roof Insurance Claims in Jackson MS: How Do I Know if I Really Have a Claim?

    Most people don’t know what to do after a storm. If you’ve just had one roll through your area, it can be hard to tell what sort of storm damage might be concealed under all that debris and if your insurance policy will cover the cost to repair.

    If you’ve recently had a severe storm roll through Jackson, Pearl, or Bryam MS, the first step is to take a good look at your new roof, gutters, and surrounding property for visible damage right away as insurance companies typically set a time frame, called a statute of limitations, for filing a claim for roof storm damage. After that point, your insurance company can legally deny coverage for the damage.

    To help you whether to file roof insurance claims in Jackson MS, here are some important factors of storm damages that require your attention:


    Visible hail damage

    One of the most common types of storm damage is hail damage. Hailstones can range in size from pea-sized to softball-sized rocks. They can break windows, dent the roof, and cause serious structural damage to the exterior of your home. If you have a hole in your roof, all your shingles are cracked, or your gutters have been damaged by hail, you will most likely need to file roof insurance claims in Jackson MS, Byram MS, and Clinton MS. These types of damages can cost thousands of dollars and depend on the extent of the damage and what is covered by your policy and deductible, you may want to get your insurance company involved.


    Wind Damage

    Severe high winds can uproot trees and cause them to fall onto homes and property. In addition to causing physical damage to the structure itself, strong winds can also rip shingles off roofs, which can cause significant roof damage and roof leaks. Here are the common signs of high wind damage to your roof:

    1. Fallen trees on — or through — your roof
    2. Broken windows and skylights
    3. Missing, loose, or broken shingles
    4. Dents and holes in your roof and siding
    5. Damaged gutters and downspouts

    Water damage

    After a storm has passed, check for any water leaks in your attic or the upper floors of your home. If it appears that rainwater has begun to seep through the ceiling or walls, you should file roof insurance claims in Jackson MS as soon as possible as water can weaken roofing materials and cause structural problems over time. Here are some signs that water infiltrated your home:

    1. Water stains on the ceiling and walls
    2. Peeling paint inside your home

    When to Call a Roofing Contractor

    If you’re unsure of what to look for, consider hiring a reputable roofing contractor from Watkins that services areas in Alabama, Clinton, Jackson, and Ridgeland, MS to do an inspection. A professional roofing contractor can inspect your roof, identify specific types of damage even subtle ones, and prepare a damage report that includes photos and other documentation for an insurance adjuster.

    An inspection by a contractor will tell you whether the damage is significant enough to file a claim and require an inspection by an adjuster from your roofing company. It could also save your insurance company money on unnecessary claims – which could have much impact on future premium costs.

    An inspection by an adjuster, who may not be familiar with the unique characteristics of your area and type of home, could lead to you receiving less than you are entitled to. A qualified contractor from the right company will know what to look for, what areas could have sustained hidden damage, and what questions need to be asked of the adjuster. This will give you “leverage” when dealing with your insurance company. Contact Watkins Construction & Roofing in Clinton, Ridgeland, and Flowood, MS to get started with your roof insurance claims in Jackson MS!
