How do I know if I have storm damage?

Storm damage to your roof can sometimes be seen from the ground. You may notice raised or curled shingles, or some shingles that have blown off. However, it is best to have a trained professional inspect your roof for damage that you cannot see.

What problems can arise from storm damage?

Storm damage can cause shingles to crease, which can lead to granule loss. When there is an absence of granules, there is no protection for the matting from sunlight. This can cause premature aging, possible leaks, and mold.

Will my insurance premium increase if I file a claim?

Typically your premium will not increase because the damage to your home is the result of a natural disaster that has been declared a catastrophe and the events causing your damage were beyond your control.

What is my time frame for filing a claim?

Most insurance companies have a limited claim period. Typically, if you have not filed a claim and had all repairs completed within one year, they are not required to fully indemnify you for your loss. You should file a claim as soon as possible to make certain that all work will be completed before the insurance deadline and to prevent any additional damage.

Do I need to get two or more estimates?

It is not necessary to get additional estimates.

Do you sub-contract?

Yes. we firmly believe in the saying: “Jack of all trades, master of none.”“our contractors are proficient due to their day in, day out focus on one specific trade.” That’s why we build relationships with quality craftsmen who know their business and strive for quality in the work they perform.

Are the tradesmen employees or subcontractors?

Because there are a variety of skilled trades involved in the restoration of a home or business, we believe the tradesmen who focus on one trade and one trade only will provide a far superior work product than the contractor who is a “jack of all trades and master of none.” By subcontracting, we have a pool of tradesmen from which to pull, therefore, we are able to complete our projects more quickly than if we attempted to employ all of the necessary tradesmen to complete a restoration project.
