So let’s talk a moment about insurance claims and property damage.
Natural disasters, wind storms, hail storms and fires are the most common causes of property damage. But what many do not know, these unexpected events can lead to structural damage if not mitigated properly. In this event, a thorough investigation of damage is key for the restoration of your property.
We have helped many of our clients restore their home, place of business, place of worship, barn, or outbuilding whether they have had storm damage or not. We know our place in the insurance world and give free consultations and detailed estimates. Then we install products properly to ensure your property is restored beautifully.
Experienced in the Insurance Claim Process
Our team is experienced in the insurance claim process. We can inspect your property and identify damage. At your invitation, we meet with you and your insurance adjuster if necessary and aid in making sure all the damage is accounted for. We look at the damage and make our assessment and submit to you a written estimate. Your insurance adjuster will do the same. It is then up to you and your insurance adjuster to compare and crunch the numbers so you can make an informed decision on how you wish to proceed.
What areas of my home are most likely to have storm damage?
Roofing, siding, and gutters are common areas that storms damage. Both hail and wind can cause serious damage to shingles and siding. Sometimes the amount of damage depends on the age and the type of product and how it was originally installed.
Window damage is less common comparatively but it happens. We have seen broken windows, broken or shredded screens, and dents to the soft metal of the windows. It is important to look at your windows too, for some storm chasing representatives, often overlook soft metal damage.
What are the steps to take after you have experienced storm damage?
• • Call your insurance agent.
• • If you have structural damage and need emergency repairs, immediately do what is necessary to protect your family and home.
• • Have an adjuster out to inspect the damage to your home. They will provide you with documentation and an estimate.
• • Call A. M. Burney Exteriors, Inc., to inspect and document damage. We will also provide you with an estimate based on our inspection.
• • Compare both estimates.
• • Once the damage has been assessed and you are in agreement with both estimates, we write a contract with a scope of work.
• • The process of installation begins.
What are “storm chasers”?
When a storm hits your neighborhood, it will likely be overrun with “storm chasers” that come from out of state. They usually come in quickly and are ready to perform and install and then quickly leaving the state to find the next storm damaged area, following the money trail.
Perhaps you have experienced the storm chaser phenomenon. Many of our clients have come to us saying they never want to deal with the storm chasing process again and wish to choose a more durable product. Even though they may come “out-of-pocket“ for an upgrade, i.e. a metal roof or steel siding, it is a perfect time to upgrade your roof and/or siding which adds value and better protection for your home and family.
