Roofing Claims & Insurance Company Headaches
Have you been denied or lowballed for a roof replacement by your insurance company? Well, we are here to tell you that you have other options besides just sitting back and accepting it. Hiring a public adjuster or an attorney that will deal directly with the insurance carrier on your behalf is an advantageous option. We know that personally dealing with an insurance company when you feel wronged, is like a murder defendant trying to represent himself in a court of law. It’s probably not going to work out to your advantage. Depending on which you choose, the public adjuster or attorney will go to bat for you. It is in their best interest to get you the movest favorable outcome possible (most money) since they usually work on a percentage basis. Another plus, they are aware of trends in the industry and are familiar with the requirements of each particular carrier so they can maximize your claim. A public adjuster or attorney will be current in their knowledge of the laws so they cannot be fooled by a slick insurance adjuster – yes they are out there. Don’t get me wrong, most insurance carriers step-up and do what they are supposed to, but keep in mind that you are not just dealing with just the insurance company. Most carriers subcontract out the adjusting work on your claim and man, there are some really bad ones out there! We have had dealings with a few adjusters that could not even read a tape measure much less determine if your roof has had damage or not. If you are one of the good folks that have had a bad experience with your claim, please don’t hesitate to call us here at RIG Construction & Roofing. We would be happy to refer you to a public adjuster that will go to bat for you. Or you can just Google “public adjuster near me” and several will pop up. Keep in mind that when you finally get your claim worked out, call us here at RIG Construction & Roofing to handle all of your roofing needs!
