Roofing Insurance Claims FAQ's

When will someone inspect my damage?
The insurance company will contact you to schedule a convenient appointment time. Inform your insurance company that you would like your roofer present, and let your Garcia representative know when your appointment is scheduled.

How can I check the status of my claim?
You can check the status of your claim by contacting your insurance company either via telephone and/or online.

What happens next?
After your damages are evaluated, an insurance adjusted will create an estimate. Your estimate typically spells out what needs to be repaired and/or replaced, as well as what is covered under your policy.

Why is there depreciation shown on the estimate?
Depreciation is typically shown on all estimates for items that are not brand new. Depreciation is a decrease of the item's value due to age, wear, or market conditions. Your estimate may include depreciation for items & materials that are being replaced. However, once the replacement of your covered loss has been completed, you may be able to recover the depreciation amount that was withheld depending on your policy terms, conditions, and exclusions.

What's a deductible? When do I need to pay it and to whom?

A deductible is the portion of a loss covered that you are responsible for under your policy. For example, if your covered claim is for $4,500 and your deductible is $500, your insurer pays $4,000. The settlement check you receive from the insurer will be based on the amount of your covered loss from the estimate minus your deductible and any applicable depreciation. In most cases, you would pay the amount of your deductible directly to your contractor once repairs are completed.

What if my contractor's estimate is different from the insurance estimate?
Garcia's price is based off of the price set by the insurer. If there is a discrepancy, we will contact your claim adjusted to resolve the discrepancy. Your insurer will do what they can to resolve the differences and make any necessary adjustments. These estimate adjustments are possible due to fluctuating costs pertaining to material and/or labor.

  3. My roof is starting to get really old and beat up, and I think I'm going to need to do something about it soon. I mean we're already having small leaks around the house, and assume that they'll only get bigger. Do you know who I can call to help repair the damage or even replace my rooftop?
