When severe weather rolls through your neighborhood, it’s never a welcome sight. Overall, severe weather causes $10 billion of damage across the United States each year. To make matters worse, storm damage is often hard to identify.
Not all storm damage is catastrophic – things like hail damage to your roof can often go unnoticed for months or even years.
Once your roof begins to leak, however, the problem can become much more expensive. A damaged roof also puts your family and possessions in harm’s way. That’s why it’s important to get your roof inspected immediately after severe weather.
Once a storm has passed through a neighborhood, our storm damage restoration company‘s project managers work to alert homeowners about possible damage to their homes.
While it’s easy to see if your car has been damaged by hail, it can be much more difficult to determine whether or not your roof is damaged. You can’t see it from the ground, and it requires a trained eye to see the impact marks while standing on a roof.
That’s why our storm damage restoration contractor offers hassle-free inspections — we’ll bring a ladder and check your roof for damage absolutely free of charge.
Our project managers have a keen eye for identifying needed repairs, and they’ll photograph any damage that is cause for concern. They’re trained to identify damage on guttering and siding, too. They know what insurance companies are looking for and what often gets left out of insurance claims.
Filing an insurance claim
If our project managers don’t find any damage, congratulations! Your home is safe and secure, and you can live with peace of mind.
If our storm damage restoration company does find storm damage, however, it needs to be repaired as soon as possible to prevent further damage.
We know dealing with insurance companies can be a daunting task, so we’ll walk you through the process of filing a claim step-by-step. We’ll also take time to go over our contract with you and answer any questions you may have.
If you’ve already filed a claim and been approved, we can help you, too. We’re familiar with what types of damage insurance policies will cover, so we can point out what might have been missed.
Meet the insurance adjuster
Once our storm damage restoration contractor files your claim, your insurance company will send an adjuster to perform a second inspection.
The insurance adjuster’s two main jobs are to 1) identify storm damage, and 2) assign a dollar amount to repair or replace it. That means our job is to make sure they 1) see all the damage, and 2) replace everything that needs to be replaced, including the damage that may have been overlooked.
We want you to know that we’re on your side. We want to make sure your family and possessions are protected. That’s why we advocate with the insurance company to make sure you get the coverage you need.
With our approach, your insurance company is held accountable. Overall, we’re here to make sure that homeowners get a fair shake with their insurance company.
For homeowners, it’s a win-win: If your claim isn’t approved, then you aren’t out any money. If your claim is approved, all we want in return is the honor of performing the repair ourselves.
