State's Largest Insurer Reports Several Hundred Claims
Denver, Colo., June 7, 2012 - As of Thursday afternoon, State Farm® had received several hundred home and automobile claims connected to last night's severe weather storm. The company is sending additional resources into the state to inspect damage and process claims.
State Farm policyholders are asked to call their agent or 1-(800)-SF-CLAIM (1-800-732-5246) in order to report damage. They can also visit www.statefarm.com.
Work with your insurance agent or claims adjustor to fully understand the claims process.
Choose a reputable roofing contractor. Look for a licensed or bonded roofer and request references. Not all jurisdictions require licensing of roofing contractors. Ask to see certificates of insurance to be sure both liability and workers compensation insurance coverage is carried, and are in force during the time the roofing work is being done.
If anyone visits your home without an appointment and professes to represent your insurer, or to be there at the request of your insurer, ask for identification and contact your insurer to confirm before allowing access.
State Farm customers who have reported a loss can expect to be contacted by a claim representative who will review your policy and explain your coverage, outline the claim process and answer questions.
Homeowners who are considering building, remodeling, or repairing their homes are encouraged to consider impact-resistant roofing. Impact-resistant roofing is available in many forms such as asphalt shingles, concrete tile and metal. While impact-resistant roofing looks the same as roofing material used today, it tends to stand up much better to hail.
