After a homeowner finds a roofer to work with, one of the next questions they have is how they’ll be able to pay for their roof, or in the case of storm damage, how to get their insurance to pay for it.

Going through a rough storm can leave you worried about the state of your roof. If you have homeowner’s insurance, you can file a claim with your insurance company to cover any necessary repairs. After giving them all the necessary information, they’ll send an adjuster over to inspect your roof.

The insurance process can get even more difficult if the cause of your roof damage isn’t immediately apparent. For example, if a tree falls through your roof, do whatever you can to make sure your insurance pays for the replacement.

But in less obvious circumstances, getting help from your homeowner’s insurance company can be challenging.

If you think you may be eligible for insurance to cover your roofing project, then we recommend reaching out to your insurance agent directly to discuss a potential claim. Depending on your policy, once your claim has been approved, you’ll get an insurance check for your roof’s ACV or RCV. Below is a breakdown of each policy:

Actual Cash Value (ACV): This is the depreciated value of your roof. If this is your policy, it means your insurance company will only send you a check for the value of your roof today.

Replacement Cost Value (RCV): This means your insurance company will pay to replace your roof. You’ll first receive a check for the ACV of your roof before repairs are completed. They’ll hold back the amount they calculate that your roof has depreciated. This is called recoverable depreciation.

Recoverable Depreciation: This is the final check your insurance company will send you after you show proof that all the work has been completed. As stated earlier, this is the amount that your insurance company has determined that your roof has depreciated during its lifetime. If you don’t have the work done, they don’t have to pay you for the depreciated part of the claim.

Once you receive these checks, you can deposit them and pay for your repair or replacement with cash, check, credit card, or other payment methods accepted by your roofing contractor. While the insurance process can seem complicated, it should ultimately help you end up with a new roof that lasts for years to come.
