Filing An Insurance Claim

Filing an insurance claim can be confusing. The team at DR3 Roofing understands this and is very familiar with the roofing insurance claim process. We can help you better understand your paperwork and policy. While DR3 Roofing is not a public insurance adjuster we are able to discuss the scope of repairs on the insured’s behalf with your insurance adjuster. Below is an outline of how a typical insurance claim is filed:

Step 1: Inspection

If you are sure you have damage to your roof, contact your insurance company and get an insurance adjuster scheduled to come inspect your home.  We are happy to be on-site when the adjustor inspects the home if you would like.

If you are not sure your home has suffered damage, please contact DR3 Roofing for a free roof inspection.

Step 2: Filing an Insurance claim

After verifying that your home has significant enough storm related damage, our trained Elite Roofing project manager will help you file your insurance claim.

  • The claim filing process will take roughly 5-10 minutes to complete.
  • You will need the date and time in which the storm happened and your policy number.
  • All insurance providers have a claims hotline. You do not need to contact your agent if you do not wish to do so.
  • Once the claim is filed through your insurance providers’ claim department you will be issued a claim number.
  • The claim number will be a reference point for your entire claim process

What To Consider While Choosing A Roofing Contracting Company In Western Pennsylvania

Imagine that the shingles on your roof need to be replaced and you are looking for a roofer to replace them. You may have already called a few and are considering which roofing contracting company is right for your job.  How do you select the best contracting company to work on your roof? Here are some things to consider when looking for a reputable roofing company:

Location of the roofing contracting company: It is important to hire a roofing company that is located in and services your area. Chances are you will get better service if the roofing company is located near your home or has an office near your residence.

References: To determine the reliability of a roofing company, you should ask for references from previous customers who are willing to vouch for excellent service. However, this should not be the only criterion used when choosing your prospective roofing contracting company in Pittsburgh. Some companies claim that they value their customers’ privacy and do not want to bother them. If this is the case, ask for business references.

Look into how roofing contracting company handles complaints: There are a variety of issues that can arise during a roof replacement or repair. You can tell a lot about a company by the way they handle complaints or things that are beyond the company’s control. Check our their reviews on social media platforms, google and ask for a reference from a previous customer(s) that had a complaint that was resolved to the customer’s satisfaction.

Payment terms: What are the payment terms for the work? What is the down payment and the amount due upon completion of the work? While it is certainly reasonable for a substantial deposit to be paid before a contractor begins work on a project, it is highly recommended that full payment not be made until the entire job is completed. Always be certain to check the terms of the contract regarding payment so the project can end in a timely manner.
