Roof damage can cause serious issues for your home. Damage caused by windstorms, hurricanes, hail, fallen trees or branches, and other weather could be a costly repair. But it is a necessary repair to prevent other damage to your home or business and the contents inside. Insurance companies know this and may try to underpay you for your claim. Sometimes they even deny your claim. Most times insurance companies will claim your roof had preexisting damage or was old and already needed to be replaced. Don’t let insurance companies cheat you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Most insurance policies require you to give notice of damage as quick as possible. It is imperative that as soon as your roof suffers any damage that you immediately notify your insurance company to start the claim process. Never wait because this delay gives an insurance company more reasons to deny your claim or underpay you due to a failure to mitigate your losses.
It depends on what policy and coverage that you have. Generally, roof damage claims may result in compensation for repairs to the roof or attic below, a completely new roof, damage to contents in the house or business, damage to the house itself and other damages related to the roof claim.
Nothing upfront. At Schlacter Law, we let you keep money in your pocket for damages and expenses by agreeing to take your case on a contingency fee basis. This means that you only owe us compensation once we recover money for you. In some instances where an insurance company improperly denies coverage or fails to honor a claim and you successfully challenge the insurance company in court, Florida law requires the insurance company to pay for your attorney’s fees.
