How do I file a claim to replace the roof of my house?
My roof is 28 years old, so it's definitely due for a replacement. How do I file a claim to replace the roof?
“If your roof is old, your home insurance isn’t going to cover the costs. Homeowners insurance will only replace the roof if it was damaged by a covered peril, like a windstorm or fire.
What you’re thinking of is a home warranty, which will cover the costs of replacing your roof. This is like how an extended warranty, and not car insurance, would cover wear and tear to your vehicle.
Once you do replace your roof, make sure to get in touch with your insurance company so they can adjust your coverage.
Home improvements often affect your rates. While a new roof should lower your rates, it’s still a good idea to shop around and make sure you’re getting the best coverage. Jerry makes insurance shopping easy. Jerry will compare rates from the top providers for you and delivers the best deals to your phone in minutes.”

How can I get paid to have my car fixed if the at-fault driver's insurance denied the claim?
"What do I do if I was hit by a rental car and their insurance denies the claim? I was involved in a pretty costly accident in South Carolina. The other driver hit me from behind and the repairs to my car will cost several thousand dollars. I just received a letter in the mail stating they denied the claim since the other driver was driving a rental car and didn't have coverage at the time."
