Claims for roof damage are often denied or underpaid, but industrial property owners can take action to fight for a more satisfactory resolution. To prevent a denial from wrecking your ability to recover from storm-related industrial property damage, here are a few options to consider:
- Contact a policyholder attorney who has experience working on behalf of industrial property owners to resolve insurance claims. An experienced attorney can make sure that the needs of property owners are made a priority and that claims are settled fairly.
- Bring in an experienced roofing contractor of your own choosing. While the insurance company may have conducted a thorough investigation, it’s simply a good business decision to bring in an outside contractor to take a look.
- Ask for a re-inspection by the insurance company’s adjuster. Roofing problems may not be obvious after a roof has been exposed to hail, high winds, or heavy rains, and some issues could be missed during a rushed or inexperienced investigation. If you do decide to take advantage of this option, you may also wish to have a roofing professional of your choosing present.
