Filing forms with your insurance company can be confusing. Here are some helpful tips to assist you. If all else fails, give us a call! We’ve dealt with hundreds of claims and are happy to help!
Understanding the insurance claim process:
Step 1: Inspection – Call Elite Roofing to do a thorough damage inspection before calling your insurance company.
Insurance companies frown upon miss filed claims with no damage and can potentially raise your premiums.
Step 2: Filing an Insurance claim – After verifying that your home has significant enough storm related damage, our trained Elite Roofing project manager will help you file your insurance claim.
The claim filing process will take roughly 5-10 minutes to complete.
You will need the date and time in which the storm happened and your policy number.
All insurance providers have a claims hotline. You do not need to contact your agent if you do not wish to do so.
Once the claim is filed through your insurance providers’ claim department you will be issued a claim number.
The claim number will be a reference point for your entire claim process.
Step 3: Adjustment – Once the claim has been filed, an adjuster will be assigned to your claim
The adjuster is required to contact you within 48 hours to set up the adjustment at a time that is convenient for you. (The Insured)
Upon making your appointment, make sure to contact your Elite Roofing project manager with the date and time of the adjustment.
The insurance adjuster is a representative of the insurance company and will naturally tend to have the insurance companies’ best interest in mind. It is important to have your own representation present during the adjustment process. Elite Roofing’s trained project managers represent you (the Homeowner) and always have your best interest in mind.
The adjuster and the project manager will inspect the entire perimeter of your property as well as inspect the roof and any interior damage.
This process takes an average of one hour to complete.
Step 4: Paperwork (Scope of work) – Upon approval the adjuster will create a scope of work for Elite Roofing to use as the initial estimate to get the work started.
This paperwork usually arrives within 7-10 days. It is very important to get a copy of the paperwork to your project manager in order to get the roofing process started as quickly as possible.
As with any insurance claim there may be extra items that were missed or unforeseen at the time of the adjustment. Don’t worry, because our trainedinsurance supplement team will handle all supplements and negations on your behalf.
Step 5: Payments and processing – Every storm related insurance claim is paid out in at least two payments. However,it is not uncommon to receive more than two payments. Additional payments are paid out as supplements and are usually paid after the job is complete.
The payments are based on a percentage of how old the roof is vs. its expected lifespan. The newer the roof the higher the ACV payment
The first payment (ACV– Actual Cash Value payment) is issued along with the first set of paperwork in most cases.
The second payment (Depreciation payment) is issued once the job is complete and a final invoice is sent to the insurance company by Elite roofing.
RCV (Replacement Cost Value) is the market value of your entire roofing project as of the date in which the project was completed. i.e. RCV=(ACV+Depr+deductible)
Elite Roofing does not require any payments to be made until your materials have been delivered to your home.
If you’ve been thinking about replacing your aging roof but you’re not quite sure when is the right time to hire a roofing contractor company, now is actually the ideal time of year. There are a number of benefits to replacing your roof before winter weather sets in. Still not convinced? Let’s take a look at a few reasons why this is the ideal season for a roof replacement.
Ideal Weather Conditions As temperatures cool and we prepare for winter conditions, autumn delivers ideal conditions. A clear day with an average temperature ranging from 45 to 50 degrees is considered optimal in the roofing industry, especially when installing asphalt shingles. Fall temperatures allow shingle strips to form optimal thermal seals, just in time for blustery winter weather. Because thermal seals require time to form moisture resistant shields, it’s best to have your new roof in place well before the first major snowfall of the season.
Replacing Before It’s Too Late If your roof is showing signs of wear and tear, it’s important to replace or repair your roof before winter weather conditions cause further damage. This is particularly true if your roof already has leaks or holes. Compounded with the excessive weight of heavy snow and ice, these punctures can quickly become a complete disaster.
Energy Efficiency Replacing your roof while weather is temperate is not only best for the integrity of your roof but it’s also optimal in terms of energy efficiency. Not only will it help you avoid wasted heating or cooling during the project, it will make your home more energy efficient in the coming winter months. Better yet, if your HVAC system is in your attic, a new roof will enable your system to perform at an optimal level.
Tax Incentives If you replace your roof before December 31, 2016 you may be eligible to receive a federal tax credit for roofing material. Be sure to save receipts and product labels for your 2016 tax returns.

Selecting a Denver residential roofing contractor is a big decision, the implications of which will impact your property for years to come. At Elite Roofing we always encourage homeowners to explore their options to ensure they are making an informed decision. Before signing a contract or providing a verbal agreement, we urge you to ask each of the following.
1) Are you insurance, licensed and bonded?
It is extremely important to vet out the contractor(s) you are considering as you narrow down your Denver residential roofing options. Make sure that you are only speaking with contractors who can provide proof that they are insured, licensed and bonded. If you encounter any contractors that cannot readily provide this information, it is best to rule them out immediately.
2) What is your rating with the Better Business Bureau?
A well-established Denver roofing company will have a rating with the Better Business Bureau. The best way to determine this for yourself is to visit the official Better Business Bureau site. At Elite Roofing we are proud to maintain an A+ rating ourselves.
3) How long have you been serving the Denver residential roofing industry?
It is extremely important to work with a Denver residential roofing contractor who has established a trusted reputation in the community. If you are considering a company that has only just begun to serve residents of Denver, keep in mind that you are taking a big risk. Many small businesses do not survive beyond their infancy. Sadly, we often hear from frustrated homeowners who are unable to take advantage of their warranty because the company that installed their roofing system is no longer in business.
4) Can you provide references from area homeowners?
A reputable Denver residential roofing company will be able to provide a list of happy customers in the area. Not only is it a good idea to contact a few of their references, but it’s wise to take it a step further. Check out their online reviews, see what past and present customers have to say about their service and workmanship. We assure you that you will be glad you went the extra mile to vet out your prospective roofing contractor(s).
5) Do you provide a warranty?
Having a warranty in place is the best way to protect yourself down the road. When selecting a Denver residential roofing company, be sure to work with one that can provide a dependable warranty. At Elite Roofing we are proud to be an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor. As a member of this prestigious group, we are part of just 1% of the industry with the ability to offer the Owens Corning Platinum Protection Roofing System Limited Warranty.
