Statute of Limitations for Storm Damage

Rainy season is here and if your roof is leaking, you may be suffering from storm damage that was never uncovered. Here is information on the Statute of Limitations for Storm Damage from Eagle Prime Construction:

How long do I have to file a Roofing Insurance claim?

You have until the statute of limitations time frame runs out to file a claim.  For homeowner’s insurance claims in Texas that time frame is three years from the date of loss or incident.

What if my insurance company denies my claim?

Insurance companies make mistakes like the rest of us.  If the insurance company dies your claim, call in an expert to verify that this is damage and to provide documentation for you to show your insurance company as proof damage exists.  If this does not work, and you truly do have damage, we suggest seeking legal representation.

What if my insurance company didn’t give me enough money to cover the damage?

 Insurance companies are required to restore your roof to a pre-event condition.  This would include all costs necessary except for your portion of the claim, which is the deductible.  Look into these two items. First, did the insurance company provide you the ACV payment? If so, that’s just the down payment and not the full replacement amount.

Second, if the total claim amount is less than you expected, have a professional look into what was provided and provide a scope of work describing in detail what is needed.  Show the scope of work to the insurance adjuster. If you feel you are not being treated fairly seek legal representation.
