We have been a state licensed contractor in the same town since 1985. Our goal is to maintain a high level of service whether you’re a retail customer or insurance claimant. That’s why our project managers are specifically trained in insurance systems to help maximize your restoration and assist you throughout the entire project.
Our project managers have a thorough understanding of the entire storm damage process and will work hand-in-hand with your insurance. We request one thing: patience, since insurance claims may be settled in many weeks. The average restoration estimate we’ve assisted with, has increased from 20% to 100% in most cases for our clients. This increase is due to our specific storm training, knowing local/federal building codes, and correctly installing the new materials. In addition, we have worked with all major insurance providers: All-State, State Farm, Farmers, CHUBB, GEICO, and many more policy providers.
Storm Damaging Events
- HAIL Storms
- Strong winds (Tornado-like episodes)
- Destructive objects (trees, poles, satellites, or acts of God).
Each roof deteriorates gradually due to normal weather conditions even if they’re designed to withstand elements such as sun, rain, snow, wind, tear. The listed storm-damaging events above are more severe because Mother Nature is unpredictable. The past few years have brought forth hailstorms, tornado (Washington, IL), and snowstorms with over 60 inches. We recommend you follow the RPG plan for roof maintenance.
- Regularly – Complete an exterior walkthrough seasonally or monthly.
- Promptly – Complete a exterior walkthrough after any storm: big or small.
- Gutters – If loose granules are collected after a storm this may show hail damage.
We stress patience because we know the horror stories associated with storm damage. Common stories of companies stealing homeowner’s down payments, inadequate warranties, no liability insurance, or unprofessional roofers. Our goal is not to criticize these businesses, merely to notify you that this could happen.
It’s typical for them to be at your home within 5-8 hours after a severe hailstorm and before you know it you’ll be signing a contract*.
