Midwest Roofing estimators have all worked numerous insurance repair projects before being called to your home. Most have a background in the roofing industry, and some are former insurance adjusters that we have hired for their knowledge of that industry. In any case, all are well qualified to work with you in assuring you the best possible value and the most out of the money available to restore your home.
Our estimators are also available to be your advocate, if needed, to help give you information about your project and what is required from a certified and licensed contractor. Sometimes, when requested, they will work hand in hand with your adjuster to get your repairs estimated properly according to the current Building Codes and Manufacturers Installation requirements. Since we have already covered the statement of loss and the hold back money, don’t be afraid to show Midwest Roofing estimators your project estimate. We will have already done our measurements and figured our price before we ask to see the statement. The most common problem we face every storm is a wrong roof measurement or missed building code required items. It is no ones fault and not intentional but will need to be addressed.
Sometimes it is the adjuster that is wrong and sometimes it is us, but it is important that the adjusters measurements and ours are close. Sharing the information on the statement with our estimators also ensures that you are getting a fair offer from the insurance company, and that they are allowing you money to cover everything that needs to be done per the construction trades requirements and national building codes. Remember your adjuster may have been inexperienced and might have missed something on the statement making your settlement lower than it should be so you will need to produce a certified contractors estimate for their review in this case.
If our estimators have given you a price that is close to the insurance estimate there is no reason not to sign the proposal, pick a shingle color, and get on our list. You won’t find a better company to deal with and any price shopping you do is for the insurance company and could put your project at jeopardy with shoddy work from a cheap contractor .
