Some of the most common types of damage include:

What Is A Business Insurance Claim?
A business insurance claim is a notification sent by business owners when their property or company has received damage or a loss. The notification alters the insurance company that the company is requesting compensation for the loss or damage. Depending on whether the loss or damage is covered by the insurance, businesses will then receive compensation to cover the loss or damage costs. Let us talk to the construction or roofing company for you.
Unfortunately, filing an insurance claim is not as black and white as it may seem. Claims can be extremely confusing, especially when a business is trying to get back in action as soon as possible. Insurance companies often take long periods to complete claims as well, pushing repairs back for much longer than necessary. At Res Reps, we work with insurance companies to ensure each claim is made in the shortest manner of time possible. We will follow up with the insurance companies every day if we have to! We want to make sure that our clients are being treated with the respect they deserve; let us help you fix your property damage and file your claim effectively with a construction or roofing company.
Navigating Roof Insurance Claims for your Business
When businesses are deciding whether to file an insurance claim or not, there are several steps that need to be taken. Residential or commercial, some of the steps business owners may need to be taken include:
- Gather evidence of damage: pictures, witness statements, contractor quote.
- File an incident report.
- Review your policy.
- Request a claim.
- Keep notes on your claim, including your evidence, contacts, etc.
- Find out the time limit of your claim.
- While you list the losses on your claim, add an addendum stating that the list is impartial. This means you can still add to it.
- Keep receipts of every penny you spend on your damage: if you have to evacuate, for example, keep receipts of your lodging, food, etc.
- Take your time to make sure you go over everything, and avoid accepting a low offer.
Contractors For Business Property Damage

We have a selection of contractors as well who we have worked with in the past that would be happy to work with you.
