Feb 2011 Storm hits Metro Atlanta

Posted in Atlanta Hail Damage Information, Claims Guide with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 28, 2011 by HAPS

The first big storm of 2011 hit the Metro Atlanta area today.  High winds up to 70 mph, large hail, and heavy rains crossed the Northern suburbs of Atlanta on Feb 28, 2011.  Trees have fallen across the area and early reports showed over 8000 power outages across the Metro Atlanta area.

Dollar amount of damage has not been determined, however, homeowners interested in determining if they have incurred damage to their homes need to have an experienced roofing company inspect their homes to determine if hail damage or storm damage have impacted their homes.

Call HAPS at 404-933-6610 asap to discuss your options and set up an appointment for an inspection.  If you have damage we recommend you file an insurance claim quickly to increase your odds of approval.  Our experience has shown that more claims get approved right after the storm.  Our belief is the adjusters and their managers are so busy processing claims that they don’t micro manage the adjuster reports as much as they do during the “slow” periods.

If you do have storm damage on your roof, it is crucial that you have an experienced claims services company represent you during the claim process.  HAPS helped homeowners receive approvals of over $800,000 in 2010 from insurance claims for hail damage & wind damage on their roofs, and water damage from leaks on the interior of their home.

We also advise you not to file a hail damage claim or storm damage claim if you haven’t had an inspection to determine if you have damage.  We know many roofing companies push to put in a roof claim as a “numbers game” hoping to get a small percentage approved.  That’s fine for them, but if you don’t have damage you have put in a hail damage or wind damage claim for nothing.

For every 100 roofs we get approved for storm damage we inspect about 500 roofs without putting in claims because we don’t find enough damage to put in a claim.  You don’t find that very often in this industry.

If you wonder if you have storm damage on your roof from the February 28, 2011 storm or other storms in the last 2 years; call us at 404-933-6610 to discuss your options.  We will represent you throughout the entire process.

Stay safe.
