Free, No Obligation Inspections
It can be difficult to recognize storm damage on your property. This is often the case when wind or hail damages a roof. Over time, the damage continues to deteriorate your roof system causing increased problems in the future. A Bruggeman Exteriors insurance restoration specialist will conduct a free, no-obligation inspection to identify and document any damage.
Your roof is an entire system of various components that work together to protect the interior and structure of your home. Our trained experts understand how these various components should work and fit together. Our inspections are thorough to ensure we have a detailed report ready should you decide to file a claim with your insurance company. From the quality of your inspection to the communication with your insurance provider we are committed to working for you and your home.
We’ll Meet With Your Insurance Adjuster on Your Behalf
When you file a claim, your insurance company assigns an adjuster to assess the damage and determine the cost of the repairs. We recommend having a Bruggeman Exteriors Restoration Specialist review the damage with the adjuster. Our specialist will meet with your adjuster, review the damage and go over solutions to move forward with your home. The determination of replacements or repairs is solely the adjuster’s decision. However, we are there to help answer his or her questions regarding the recommended reconstruction process. Often times we can help point out small nuances that can be difficult to add to the claim later.
We Advocate For Full Code Upgrade Replacements
Following a major catastrophe insurance companies are pressured to assess widespread damage as immediately as possible. Adjusters might be assigned to areas of the country with which they are not familiar or may have several homes to visit in a short window of time.
You can count on us to be familiar with the building code requirements in your municipality. On occasion, an adjuster will omit the cost of building code upgrades or items that should be replaced or installed to ensure that your home meets your local building code requirements. In these instances, we will notify the adjuster and review the necessary codes, ensuring that you are reimbursed for these costs and aren’t stuck with messy back and forth work with your insurance company.
Detailed and Honest Estimates Using Leading Technology
Often, adjusters will request an estimate directly from the contractor. Many of our competitors will simply provide a bottom-line dollar figure with no detail regarding the work to be done.
We believe it’s best practice to provide a line-itemized estimate using software that is widely accepted in the insurance industry. This estimate describes each step in the repair or reconstruction process and provides the specific cost associated with each step. We’ve found that because of this commitment to truthful invoicing we have earned the respect of many national insurance agencies.
We Handle The Back and Forth, Keeping You Informed
When it comes to insurance claims we understand that many homeowners can feel overwhelmed with the entire process. Whether it’s a concern about logistics or the potential headache of playing phone tag with the adjuster we’ve got you covered. We work with each client to come up with a communication plan that will help ease the burden off the homeowner yet still gives them as much access as they want to the process. This is just one of the many ways we put our customers first.
