Severe Storm Damage July 6, 2016 in Gwinnett County

Posted in Claims Guide, Roofing Articles, Wind Damage with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 6, 2016 by HAPS

On July 6, 2016 a large squall line brought severe storms through Gwinnett County taking down trees in many areas including Berkeley Lake, Buford, Grayson, Lilburn, Lawrenceville, Snellville, Sugar Hill, and Suwanee.

In addition, many roofs were damaged from high winds across the county.

Home Asset Protection Services, LLC (HAPS) is a local roofing company who has many years of experience dealing with roofing claims and the insurance claims process.  While homeowners are familiar with the big hail storms in 2009 and 2011, many are not familiar with wind damage claims.

First and foremost, if you have tree damage on your home, call 404-933-6610 to have emergency tarps on your roof to stop further damage.

Next, If you are interested in potentially having your roof covered by your homeowners insurance, now is a good time to look into the possibility.

FYI, here is what is about to happen.  Storm chasing roofing companies will come into town, hire a bunch of door to door salesmen familiar with the process, and start visiting your home to help you file a claim.

Herein lies the problem. Many of these companies are out of state.  If you get your roof replaced by out of state companies…who are you going to call if you have a problem?

We have been in the Gwinnett area for several years, and over the past few years approximately 80% of our work has been roof leak repairs…often due to shoddy construction.

In many cases we advise homeowners with newer roofs to call on the contractor who warranties the work. Guess what? Company is out of business, and homeowner is stuck holding the bag.

We’re not saying all roofing companies are like this.  There are many reputable roofing companies in the Metro Atlanta area; and the lack of storms over the past few years have weeded out some of the bad apples.

With that being said, we highly recommend you using a LOCAL company to assist you with your roofing claim who is honest, experienced in roofing and repairs, and experienced in the roofing claims process.

If you would like to have your roof inspected from storm damage, call HAPS at 404-933-6610. We will ask a few questions and determine if your home is in an area susceptible to roof damage.

Don’t delay. While only an opinion, the longer you wait…the less chance you have of getting your roof approved.

Call HAPS today at 404-933-6610.

 

2014 Roofing Services in Atlanta Georgia Area

Posted in Claims Guide, Roofing Articles with tags , , , , on March 3, 2014 by HAPS

Getting ready for storm season.  Generally Hail Storms occur in the Spring of the year.  When hail or wind storms occur…it’s very important that you have your home checked for Hail Damage within a short period of time after the actual hail storm date.  Why?  Because Insurance companies are generally more likely to approve roofing claims for hail damage right after the storm.

At HAPs we’ve got years of experience in determining if damage has occurred and we have years of experience dealing with the insurance adjusters who inspect your roof for hail damage or wind damage to determine if your claim should be approved for roof replacement.

It is totally up to the insurance company, however, our experience in roofing claims, roofing construction, and roofing repair is a valuable tool for helping you get approved for your roofing claim.   Why?  Because you have someone on the roof during the adjuster appointment to help show the adjuster where the hail damage occurred.  

If you have leaks or if you believe you may have damage to your roof, call Geovani Reyes at 770-906-1356 to arrange for an inspection of your roof.  If hail damage or wind damage is not present, we can give you an estimate for repairs which need to be done to stop the leak.

Be proactive with your roof.  A leaking roof can lead to much larger problems if you don’t take care of your roof.  If you need roofing services in the Atlanta, Georgia area, call us today.

 

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!!!
