Have you ever had an insurance company deny a customer’s claim? Of course you have.
And when they do, you have a few choices – walk away from the job and make nothing, submit yourself to the agonizing re-inspection / appraisal / umpire process, hire a public adjuster who gets 10% of the entire claim (if they are successful), or hire a law firm who - by law - gets paid on top of the claim amount.
No doubt you've had your share of insurance claim jobs. While many claims are getting paid as they should, some insurance companies are unfairly denying or underpaying legitimate claims, especially with the passing of Senate Bill 10 / House Bill 1774 (the “Hailstorm Bill” or "Blue Tarp Bill") on September 1, 2017. With extra red tape involved with insurance jobs, we know it’s tempting to throw away a denied claim job – that’s where we come in.
As a roofer, one of the most frustrating aspects of working with insurance claims is the collection of recoverable depreciation after the work is done.
You did your part. You got a deposit up front and completed the job right and on time. You informed the insurance company so they would release the recoverable depreciation check. After a couple of weeks you call your customer so you can get paid, but suddenly they aren't taking your calls and you start to worry that you've been stiffed - again.
It's not fair, but all too often the recoverable depreciation check goes towards your client's credit card bills, a vacation, or new big screen TV when it was supposed to go to you for the work you've already completed! Now you're in the hole, not knowing how you'll ever collect.
To help roofing contractors avoid this problem, we've giving away our "10 Steps to Guarantee Collection of Recoverable Depreciation" and we want to share it with you without cost or obligation. You’ll find out exactly what you need to do to collect every penny you’ve earned, every time – without hiring an attorney!
