Partner with a Roofing Contractor with Insurance Expertise

When you make your first call to your insurance company to file a claim, know that we are here for you every step of the way. We’ll help you make an appointment with an insurance adjuster. We’ll help evaluate and assess the damage with them and outline the scope of work. With our years of experience in offering insurance claim services, we can clearly explain how we would like to approach repairs on roofs.

As we are out there in dealing with the assessment, we:

  • Test the roof for weak spots and hidden damage

With our input, the adjuster gets accurate information based on our experience of what needs to be done to justify to the insurance company and the homeowner whether or not the roof can be repaired or replaced. Our professional backing and supporting input can save time in the claims process by reducing the effort needed for the insurance company to process the claim. The faster this gets done, the faster the homeowner can begin the process to get their roof fixed.
