We were so excited to hear that our company, Home Asset Protection Services, LLC (HAPS) has been recognized as one of the top residential roofing companies in Dunwoody/Sandy Springs Georgia for 2011.

According to the City of Dunwoody code compliance department, HAPS rebuilt more roofs in this lovely city than just about every other roofing company.  We take great pride in this accomplishment as we greatly value our relationship with the citizens of this community.  City Code C0mpliance Inspector Phil Paulin commented, “I keep a close watch on the roofing companies who come into our fine city, and I trust George Hearn and HAPS more that any other company.  When I inspect their jobs I know they are doing to job right; and therefore I know with confidence they are taking good care of the citizens of our community.”

Our company is built on trust and courtesy combined with a committment to going ‘over and above’ our requirements to ensure our clients are satisfied.  These relationships result in great referrals, repeat business, and satisfaction by the homeowner’s and the company.

If you have NOT had your roof inspected, call us at 404-933-6610 for a free inspection to determine the condition of your roof.  If we find storm related damage…we will assist you throughout the entire claims process from start to finish.  If you don’t have damage, we will advise you accordingly so you will not file frivolous claims with your insurance company.  We’ve seen many roofs with no damage where the homeowner filed a claim because a roofing company either didn’t have experience in identifying hail damage/storm damage, or they just had the homeowner file the claim in hopes it would get approved by the insurance company.  We think this is unfair to the homeowner.  Our approval ratings are in the 90% range because we don’t file them unless we feel there is a decent chance of approval.  We don’t guarantee approval because the claim can only be approved by the insurance company.  Their opinions are subjective based on the adjuster who runs the appointment.  With HAPS, we also treat the insurance adjusters with courtesy and honesty; and this reputation has served us well in the field.

Home Asset Protection Services, LLC (HAPS) is locally owned and operated out of Suwanee, GA.  Please visit our website at http://www.homeassetprotectionservices.com for more information; or call us at 404-933-6610 if you would like one of our representatives to assist you with any upcoming project.

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.

Have a great day!!!

Common Atlanta Hail Damage Roofing Scams

Posted in Atlanta Hail Damage Information, Claims Guide with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 10, 2009 by HAPS

Over the past few months we’ve run across several homeowners in the Metro Atlanta area who have been taken advantage of by companies in the hail damage roof replacement business.

The large amount of hail damage over the past few years has brought millions of dollars of business into the area.  With this magnitude of opportunity comes a small percentage of scammers who don’t represent the best interest of the homeowners.

Here are a few Hail Damage Roof scams we’ve run across in the last month.

One Snellville, GA homeowner told us she signed a contract with a company.  Upon receipt of insurance funds from the hail damage claim she wrote out a check to the roofing company.  The company cashed the check and then disappeared.  She can’t locate the company (who was an out of state company) and her insurance company obviously is not responsible for the error. This homeowner will now have to pay for the repairs out of pocket.

Another homeowner had their roof replaced from a roofing company who was also registered out of state.  When the work was complete the homeowner noticed a problem with the roof which needed to be fixed.  Once again, this homeowner was not able to reach the company via the phone number he was provided.   Now they have leaks and repairs which need to be done which will not be covered by the insurance company because the damage is not storm related. Again, these repairs will have to be paid for out of pocket.

Yet another homeowner went under contract with a roofer, and after they issued the initial payment to the roofer… the roofer wouldn’t do the work in a timely manner.  After 2 months of waiting the homeowner finally was able to get the check back from the original roofer, and we were able to get the job done promptly.  We even started the work without a downpayment to ensure the homeowner that the work would be done by our company.  It was a risk on our part, but we felt the homeowner would be a great reference after we helped show them that all companies are not scammers.

As you can see, there are many ways to be taken advantage of by these roofing companies and hail damage claims companies.

Some precautions you can take are:

Make the company show you a copy of their business license and/or their corporation filings to make sure they really are a local company.  It’s easy to buy a cell phone with a local number, and many out of state companies are doing this to make it appear they are “local”.  Find out their home office location to verify they really are locally owned.

Make sure the roofing company offers a warranty for the workmanship of their job.  Of course you need to once again make sure they are local so you can find them if warranty repairs are needed.

Ask for references:  A good company will have plenty of references for you to check up on to see how well the company did throughout the entire Hail Damage claim process.  Finding satisfied customers shouldn’t be too difficult if the hail damage claims company did a good job because the actual service provided is quite valuable.  Getting a quality new roof paid for by your insurance company is a good deal.  It’s fair, it’s necessary, and it’s a great value for little to no cost.  A company that won’t provide references raises a huge flag.

At Home Asset Protection Services, LLC we offer professional service, prompt attention to your hail damage claim, and we are located in Suwanee, GA.  We have many references who are more than pleased with our work, and we’ll be happy to provide references to you if you decide to look into the opportunity of having your roof replaced from Hail Damage in the Atlanta area.
