Severe thunderstorms pounded the Metro Atlanta area on Saturday causing major Hail and Wind Damage across the Metro Atlanta area. 

Early reports show hundreds of thousands of dollars of hail damage incurred to homes, vehicles, and other property throughout the area.  Hail up to 4″ in size will bring catastrophic insurance adjusters in town just to help keep up with the influx of insurance claims to be filed. 

Homeowners who have incurred damage will need to move quickly to avoid long waits for insurance adjusters to schedule appointments.  It can be an overwhelming process for someone with no experience in this area. 

At HAPS we have tremendous experience in this area.  We’ve helped homeowners get hundreds of thousands of dollars in claims approvals from hail and wind damage.  We have great relationships with the insurance companies, we have great relationships with our clients, and we have great expertise in making sure you are represented fairly.

There are many out of state companies who will rush into town,  push to get your claim filed, cause man made damage to try and cheat the insurance companies, take your checks and run, use work crews with little or no experience…and then leave town to never be found if you have problems with your roof in the future. 

We are locally based in Gwinnett County, we have climbed and inspected hundreds of roofs, we invest in high tech reports to verify when and where the hail storms hit your area, we know the difference between hail damage and blisters on your shingles, we are honest in our opinions of damage, we don’t ask you to file a claim unless you have at least a 60% chance of approval, we meet with the insurance companies to make sure YOU are represented fairly, we use experienced crews with decades of roofing experience, and we go over and beyond in our roofing process to make sure your roof will last.

If you would like an honest opinion on your roof call 404-933-6610 to schedule an appointment today or CLICK HERE to contact us.  One of our claims managers will meet with you and help you through the entire claims process.  Our experienced roof inspectors will assess your damage and advise you on your chances of approval.

If you suspect you may have incurred hail or wind damage from the March, 2011 severe thunderstorms in the Metro Atlanta area; you need to act fast.  Our experience has shown that the early claims get approved more often than the claims filed months after the storm since supervisors don’t have time to micro manage adjusters during the busy periods.

Why You Choose HAPS for your Hail Storm Damage Claim

Posted in Atlanta Hail Damage Information, Claims Guide with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 8, 2010 by HAPS

Our company has experienced tremendous success this year in our hail claims services business, and I want to share some of the reasons people choose Home Asset Protection Services to represent them in their roofing claim.

Our claims managers are courteous & professional, and we are experts in the hail damage claims services.  Why?  Because we believe in helping people and we have a great system in place for improving approval rates for roofs which have experienced damage.  Also, we’re honest.  If we don’t believe your roof will get approved…it won’t.   If it’s a low percentage, we will tell you.  And if your chances are good…we will SHOW YOU PICTURES of your shingles so you can see for yourself.

We have met with adjusters from every insurance company and we understand what it takes to get approved.  We have great relationships with many of them as we see them on a regular basis…and we have a mutual respect for each other’s expertise.    Our experience has shown that having someone on the roof during your claim inspection improves your chances for approval by 70%.  Time and time again we’ve seen homeowner’s try it on their own and get denied.  You need someone with hundreds of adjuster appointments under their belt to: 1. Ensure your damage is pointed out to the adjuster and 2. Make sure you are properly compensated for the work which needs to be done.

As for building the roof…..we understand your concerns and we go over and beyond to make sure your job is done properly with the best materials available. We offer a no leak warranty on our workmanship so you better believe our focus is on replacing a roof which will last, look good, and not leak.

Our references are our most important asset.  We encourage our prospective homeowners to speak with our references because they “sell” our company better than we do.  Many were hesitant at first but they are always amazed when they receive the checks for thousands of dollars for their roof replacement.  It doesn’t stop there.  After they receive the 1st check they are always satisfied with the quality of our work.  When they see how we go over and above by using ice and water shield in the valleys, using extra nails, and adding proper ventilation as needed, they know they realize they made the right choice.

If you want to check us out….Call 404-933-6610 and talk to George.  He owns the company and he realizes you are making a 25-30 year decision.  He will be happy to answer any questions you may have about your claim.  You can also fill out a request form by CLICKING HERE; and someone will contact you within 24 hrs.

Also, so you’ll know, we do virtually ALL home improvements.  Our roofing customers use us and refer us to others for painting, drywall repair, wood rot repair, gutters and gutter guards, siding, decks, windows, tile, structural repair, etc., etc.

We don’t want a one time customer who will call us every 30 years they need a roof.  We want you be so satisfied with our quality and service that you call us for any home repair in the future.  It’s how we stay in business.

If you are considering having your roof checked out to see if you’ve had hail or wind damage, call us at 404-933-6610 for a FREE inspection.  If we find damage we’ll represent you through the entire process from pre inspection to adjuster apppointments to analyzing adjuster summaries to ordering materials to finishing the job and helping you secure ALL due monies from your insurance claim.

Free Hail Damage Pre Inspection

Posted in Atlanta Hail Damage Information, Claims Guide with tags , , , , , , on January 12, 2010 by HAPS

How do you know if you have hail damage on your roof?  Most homeowners don’t climb on their roofs to see if damage has occured, nor do we recommend you do so.

You need a thorough pre inspection by a qualified roofer who has experience in this area.

Our team of professionals do thorough pre inspections before we advise you to file a hail damage claim with your insurance company.  During our inspection we climb on your roof, we take pictures of your vents and shingles, and we count the hail “dings” in a 10′ x 10′ test square just like the adjusters will do if a claim is filed.

When we are done with the inspection, we show you the pictures so you can have visual evidence of your roof before you decide to file a hail damage claim with your insurance company.

After we show you the pictures we assist you in the remainder of the claims process.  We help you file the claim, we explain the entire claims process to you, we meet with the insurance adjuster during their inspection to represent YOU,  we make sure the measurements and compensation are correct, we explain the adjuster summary to you, we assist you in getting your full claim amount, we install your roof in a timely manner, and we assist you in recovering any final payments due from the insurance company, and we warranty our workmanship for 5 years.

Handling this yourself can be overwhelming if you don’t have experience in this area.  Home Asset Protection Services will make the process easy for you.

So if you’re interested in finding out if your home may qualify for a roof replacement due to Hail Damage, call 404-93-6610 to arrange for a FREE pre inspection of your home.

We look forward to representing you.

Determining if your Atlanta Home has Hail Damage

Posted in Atlanta Hail Damage Information with tags , , , , on November 3, 2009 by HAPS

As a homeowner, it is difficult to determine if you’ve had hail damage on your roof.  As a homeowner you don’t usually climb on your roof to inspect for damage after a storm, and most likely you don’t know what to look for.

If you’ve seen roofs being replace in your area then you may have been hit by the storms in February, April, or June 2009.

We don’t advise you to put in a claim on your property until you’ve had a claims specialist pre inspect your home to determine if you may qualify for a roof replacement from your insurance company.

Our team of professionals offer FREE inspections of your roof to determine the amount of damage you may have incurred from the storms of 2009.  If we believe you may qualify for an insurance replacement, we advise you to file a claim with your insurance company.  Our professionals will assist you in filing the claim, meet with the adjuster to represent YOU, assist you in getting the check endorsed (often complicated), and make sure the work is done correctly and in a timely manner.

The determination of having enough damage for a full roof replacement is totally up to the adjuster, however; it is best to have a company to represent you during the inspection.

If you live in the Metro Atlanta area and you think you could possibly have damage to your roof, call Home Asset Protection Services, LLC at 404-933-6610 to set up an appointment with one of our professionals to meet with you, do a free pre inspection, and assist you through the entire claims process from start to finish.

We represent YOU, and our goal is to make the claim process as simple as possible to help you protect one of your most valuable assets…..your Home.

Hail Storm Damage to Roofs Across Atlanta Area

Posted in Atlanta Hail Damage Information with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 26, 2009 by HAPS

In 2009 the Atlanta, Georgia metro area has experienced a tremendous amount of hail storms causing hail damage to homes and cars across the Metro Atlanta area.

Hail has ranged from pea sized, dime sized, quarter sized, golf ball sized, and even baseball sized resulting in thousands of homes and cars damaged from these hail storms.

While car damage is evident, homeowners often fail to realize that hail damage has occurred on their roof. The impact of hail damage to your roof can be quite expensive if you don’t have your home inspected and repaired quickly. Roof leaks, Wood Rot, Mold, and wall damage are just a few problems which can occur to your home if you have a hail damaged roof.

It is the homeowner’s responsibility to ensure that their home is protected if hail damage has occurred. In many cases your homeowners insurance will pay for full replacement of your roof (less deductible) if you’ve experienced hail damage. If you wait until you notice water leaks from your roof you may have waited too long to have your roof replacement covered by your insurance company.

Your insurance company will not contact you to remind you to have your home inspected. In fact, in many cases your insurance company and adjusters will try to prove just the opposite…that your roof is not damaged enough to warrant a claim being paid, or your claim amount should only cover the bare minimum for repair of your hail damaged roof.

If you have had hailstorms in your area you need a qualified professional to inspect your home and represent YOU during the entire claims and re-roof process.

At HOME ASSET PROTECTION SERVICES, LLC (HAPS), we do just that.

We offer a FREE inspection of your home to determine if hail damage has occurred to your roof. If damage has occurred, we assist you during the entire claims process by offering the following services:

1. Free Home Inspection for Hail Damage.

2. Assistance in filing and processing a claim with your homeowners insurance company.

3. Meet with insurance adjuster to ensure you receive fair compensation for replacement value of your roof.

4. Upon approval, we meet with you to select quality shingles which protect and beautify your home.

5. Arrange for new roof to be installed from qualified LOCAL roofer, and keep you informed during the entire process.

Let us handle it all to protect your assets. Once approved, the only decisions you will have to make is what color shingles you want and if you want any special upgrades.

If you have had hailstorms in your area, it is very important that you have someone with experience to represent you during this entire process. It is equally important that homeowners act quickly if hail storms have occurred in your area. Insurance companies generally only pay claims within a short period of time from the actual storm. DON’T WAIT UNTIL IT’S TOO LATE!

If you have hail damage and don’t have an inspection done, you could end up having to replace your roof at YOUR expense, and this expense can cost thousands of dollars, quite often with NO ASSISTANCE from your insurance company.

Please have your home inspected if you have had hail storms in your area, especially if you have seen neighbors homes re-roofed recently. Call 404-933-6610 to arrange for a FREE inspection of your home if you suspect hail damage to your home. It could save you thousands of dollars, it can give you piece of mind knowing your roof and your rights are protected, and it can protect one of your most valuable assets….your home.
